excellent idea -- an analog value is converted to a continuous stream of digital pulses, encoded with "pulse density modulation"
guys from parallax testing (or should i say toasting) one of their "propeller" microcontroller chips in the oven
:D very funny, if you love embedded systems or linux, or are interested in network security. thanks to ar0cketman for forwarding
great news for embedded systems hobbyists -- how to use use ddc from standard vga ports as a cheap i2c bus
cute little microcontroller with POE, parallel-port interface and built-in web server software

propeller is a very interesting cpu architecture
