Digital barometer

Digital barometer Digital barometer

This barometer uses the absolute pressure sensor MPXA4115A, 12-bit A/D converter and AVR ATmega8. The source code and schematic are here. The result is displayed on graphical LCD with TOSHIBA T6A04 controller. In the first half are numerical value of actual pressure in milibars and on second half are bars that represent pressure in last 30 hours (15 bars with 2 hours measuring period). horizontal antermittent line represent pressure of 1000 mb.

Toshiba Cradle USB Power Charging Mod

This mod is quite simple. It involves taking the cradle apart and solder the 5V power rails from the usb straight to the power jack. I am not sure why Toshiba did not do this in the first place. It saves a spot on my power bar and there is one less cable to deal with.
