I recently ordered a pair of U2F authentication keys from Amazon. I was very excited about my move to nearly unbreakable security on Gmail, Dropbox, Github, and other services. Individuals and businesses should be flocking to U2F and similar technologies to secure their data and prevent embarrassing and costly security breaches.
Using Doxygen with C
Doxygen is a free source code documentation tool. It automatically decomposes a software design when using an object-oriented programming language such as C++ or Java. When using C, however, there is no natural break-down of the code so the developer must create groups (or modules) within Doxygen to show a definitive decomposition of the design.
USB Virtual Serial Port Firmware
Desktop communication to embedded devices is critical for programming and debugging. It is also important in production for data acquisition devices and other computer peripherals. Setting up a device as a virtual serial port using USB is a great solution for transferring data between desktop computers and embedded systems. It can be connected to most desktop operating systems (Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux) without installing or developing any USB drivers.

The CoAction Hero is an ARM Cortex M3 development board. It has Stratify OS pre-installed which gives you easy-to-use multi-threading, hardware abstraction and debugging all by simply connecting a USB cable.
Understanding Microcontroller Pin Input/Output Modes
General purpose input/output (GPIO) pins on microcontrollers have various modes for both input and output. Input modes may include pull-up or pull-down resistors, hysteresis, or some combination. Output modes can be push-pull, high-drive or open-drain.
Sensing the Source Current in an Embedded Application
This is a simple, low-cost way to measure the current output at the power source of an embedded system using a microcontroller’s ADC input.
