Introduction to the STM32 Blue Pill (STM32duino) and other STM32 boards

STMicroelectronics STM32 32-Bit ARM® Cortex®-M MCUs are based on the Arm Cortex-M processor. The MCUs offer a 32-bit product range that combines very high performance, real-time capabilities, digital signal processing, and low-power, low-voltage operation. This is achieved while maintaining full integration and ease of development. There is a large range of STM32 devices, based on

USB spy cables are here

Can a USB data cable be altered into a Spying data? Absolutely YES! There are many potential problems with USB cables. The USB Security is fundamentally broken and modern electronics can be made so small that you can fit all kinds of nasty circuits inside USB cable if you want to do that. And some

Raspberry Pi Pico board

Interesting new micro-controller board and custom chip from Raspberry Pi: Raspberry Pi Pico. Pico provides a single push button, which can be used to enter USB mass-storage mode at boot time and also as a general input, and a single LED. It exposes 26 of the 30 GPIO pins on RP2040, including three of the

FPGA dev boards

An FPGA Developer’s Guide to Cheap Development Boards https://www.hackster.io/news/an-fpga-developer-s-guide-to-cheap-development-boards-8f1782bb271a Finally, a detailed and all-encompassing guide for those of us with an addiction to buying new FPGA development boards. Joel Williams’ list starts off by outlining the criteria that he looks for in an FPGA development board. He makes the great point to consider what peripherals

Nasty Linux PPPD vulnerability

This looks like a nasty vulnerability. It seems that a newly found critical 17-years-old remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability could open nearly all popular #Linux based operating systems and many embedded devices to remote hackers. Many widely-used Linux distributions have already been confirmed impacted. Hacker news writes: The US-CERT today issued advisory warning users of
