SD Library

In the last chapter, we very briefly introduced the idea of using the program memory of the Arduino microcontroller to keep large chunks of data from taking up too much room in RAM. Instead, we could use additional external hardware to read and write to an SD memory card. SD or Secure Digital flash memory cards are the very same wafer-thin memory cards used by cameras, mp3 players, and other devices. The SD library is a relative newcomer to the standard Arduino libraries and the list of functions and associated libraries would make our conversations of the LiquidCrystal library and the PROGMEM functions seem like a leisurely stroll in the park in comparison. Rather than a comprehensive analysis of the library in the few remaining pages ...
