Freeduino RBBB and the SD Card Reader

The next board to be tested with the SD Card Readers is the Modern Devices RBBB (Really Bare Bones Board). This appears to be similar to the Arduino Duemilanove that we tested in a previous post, in that it uses the ATmega168 chip.  However, the RBBB does not have a built-in USB interface, nor a […]

Arduino/SD Card Reader – Part 2

The next test with the SD Card Readers was with a simple program to create a file, write data to it, and read the data back out.  This was the ReadWrite example program included in the Arduino IDE.  The only change I made was to specify pin 10 for the Slave Select Pin, rather than […]
