The Arduino Trinket Compass Stepper

Hands on the tiny Arduino from Adafruit “Trinket” .


After a week of dealing with the Adafruit’s mini board, and fighting with the driver installation for Windows 7, finally it’s working in my laptop but not in my desktop.
Due to the small size and price some ideas began to “assault” my desk.

The blink example was running in minutes…

Arduino Trinket Compass Motor

An old mini project using relays coils and a compass to emulate a stepper motor:


The small  (12Volts, 680 ohms) relay’s coils are driven directly by the 5Volts Trinket.


See it in YouTube:
