Do you have an Arduino project configured to periodically gather some sensory information and you are noticing it draining power quickly while waiting for the next interval? Do you want to get the maximum operating period on those small batteries? Then it is time to consider implementing a WatchDog Timer (WDT) so conserve power when your device can power down … Read More

UPDATE: after some optimizations of C -> AVR assembly, some new timings available. As the Internet of Things has gained popularity and buzzword status, a number of large efforts to create standards consortiums and offer cloud services for storage and processing the data collected. Unfortunately, the weakest link, the device actually gathering data has not really been considered or has … Read More
