Hi, and welcome to my playground. I'm Thomas and on this page I write about my hobbies; electronics, microcontrollers, programming, computer stuff and pretty much anything I find fascinating.

A fistful of projects

Lync presence (busy) light

Let your coworkers know your availability with this simple Arduino Uno project. Three LEDs that reflect your Lync status.


Mood light using 3W Prolight RGB LED

A 3W Prolight RGB LED mounted on a heat-sink, with rubber feet to support e.g. a glass ball.


Fan and temperature controller with LCD

Reads temperature and controls a fan using a PWM output, fan and alarm set point can be adjusted and is shown on a LCD. Uses an AVR ATmega8 microcontroller.


Some random articles

A first look at my workshop/man cave

I finally have a workshop again; that also doubles as my man cave. Let me show you around :)


Getting started with the AVR microcontroller series

A quick introduction to the AVR microcontroller series with sample schematics of inputs, outputs, serial and some basic circuit drawing.

Who am I?

I am Thomas, and Hebron, a programming and electronics enthusiast. I've been doing electronics projects for about 10 years, using the AVR micro controller. The last couple of years programming has really peaked my interest, especially C#, Python and PHP. I live in Norway with my girl friend and our two twin boys. Read more on my profile page.
