This little work is in memory of a great man, who honored me with his friendship: Pino Rizzitano.
This is the Arduino-DUE version of my G3TR Transistor Tester that everyone can easily build (DIY). All components required, apart an Arduino-Due board, are just two 10K resistors and a microswitch. I’ve made two different versions of the software to experiment with the SAM3X8E hardware:
- In the first one I use the direct ARM processor registers manipulation. So, each register is accessed by an “unsigned long” pointer and I gain the complete control of ARM processor hardware registers ( using C language ): g3trDue.
- In the second one I use the software drivers provided by Atmel: g3trDriverDue .
Anyway, in both versions, the Arduino IDE is just used to compile and upload the sketch to the board.
