The Arduino Simple Task Scheduler

 During the development of an Arduino-based balloon flight computer, the designers required a method of scheduling and queuing various functions within the sketch to keep the complex flight system running smoothly. Using their Arduino library, you can now schedule functions to run after a set amount of time, or repeat after periods of time, and so on. 

Libraries such as this can improve the longevity of an Arduino-based prototype in that it could negate the requirement for updating to a more complex development environment. For more information, library and documentation visit the project information and GitHub page. And we're on twitter, so follow us for news and product updates as well. 

When your projects outgrow the normal Arduino-compatible boards, running out of program and flash memory space, or you're stacking on Ethernet and microSD shields, or all at once - it's time to upgrade to the Freetronics EtherMega:

Quite simple the EtherMega is the fully-loaded Arduino-compatible board on the market today. Apart from being completely Arduino Mega2560-compatible, it includes full Ethernet interface, a microSD card socket, full USB interface, optional Power-over-Ethernet support and still has a circuit prototyping area with extra I2C interface pins. So if your project is breaking the limits, upgrade to the EtherMega today.
