Solid State vs. Electromechanical Relays | Arrow.com

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/06/27

For my reading list: [WayBack] Solid State vs. Electromechanical Relays | Arrow.com

When you need a power switching solution, you are faced with two competing technologies – electromechanical relays and solid state relays. So which is the right choice for your design?

Keywords: SSR versus EMR, SPDT

Relays and Arduino / ESP8266 / ESP8266X

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/06/19

As a follow-up on Raspberry Pi and relays – follow up on Having one Raspberry Pi reset another Raspberry Pi through relay or transistor some of my research links to bring this to Arduino, ESP8266, ESP8266X and similar devices:

Because FTDI history: Why is the atmega chip reset three times during programming? – Arduino Stack Exchange

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/06/18

For historic reference: [WayBackWhy is the atmega chip reset three times during programming? – Arduino Stack Exchange.

TL;DR:

It is to ensure the device is being reset, no matter which driver you use and how odd that driver behaves.

So what you are seeing there is

  1. first a brief toggle of DTR by the IDE to force a reset,
  2. then avrdudeopening the port and DTR going low,
  3. then finally the IDE toggling DTR again one last time to force a final reset.

Reminder to self to check out these schematics and find out how I got them in the first place.
