Lab Notes 9/16/2012

As you can see, I've started publishing my GCC/Eclipse/ARM development tutorial series. I hope folks find it useful. I'm continuing work on future tutorials.

The USB-to-Serial cable and the R/C servos that I ordered from China (on aliexpress.com) arrived. The cable uses a Prolific 2303 chip, although there's questions in my mind about whether it might be counterfeit. It enumerates on my Win7 64-bit machine but the driver won't start. The driver will start in the WinXP 32-bit VM that I'm using for my ARM development. I haven't been able to test it yet.

The servos also arrived. I don't have the ability to test those; I plan on driving them with the STM32F0.
