Re: PIC Microcontroller Primer – Tutorial #2

Is this tutorial still valid or has something changed? I must be doing something wrong if it is. Hi Vallance, Has this tutorial was posted by a forum member, and the links/code seem to be missing I would gather this tutorial is no longer valid. Is there something we can help you with specifically? ...

JLCPCB - PCB only $2 :)

I've recently seen a bunch of youtube videos relating to JLCPCB, 10boards for $2, that seems a lot cheaper than iTead PCB, So I thought I would give it a go with my next project. I've placed my first order with them for 50mm X 50mm 10 PCB's which came to about £1.41p here in the UK, wth shipping the...

Re: A PIC language actually based on Visual Basic

I think the post got deleted I'm afraid. The "Raptor IDE" I was talking about actually got renamed just before it was release to "Firewing", this can be found at the following link. http://www.firewing.info/ I've done a lot with the Firewing programming language and fully recommend it if you are use...

Re: MakerBuino build yourself kit

Yes I've seen you have been busy, looks like Retroball is doing very well, I'm sure ill be backing it but waiting too see what funds I have over next few weeks :) I really like that you've designed it around the arduino and pic. There seems to be a lot of discrete components there - are they mainly ...

MakerBuino build yourself kit

As we all love anything electronic and to do with gaming here I thought I would share this! :) I was a Kickstarter backer to this project back in Feb 2017, and I have just received my kits (July). The Makerbuino is based on the GAMEbuino except that it's a kit that you build yourself which includes ...

Re: Help Question For Work

We have more than one unit and the other units have not had a problem. Sounds to me that you have a faulty unit then, if you have more than one unit and the other units work fine?. It's difficult to say what the problem can be, as it can be many things, power, component, interference, dry solder jo...

Re: Help Question For Work

My only experience with data logging is with Arduino/Pic devices, and the only issue I've experienced with SD Cards is when the PIC writes/reads to the SD Card, it sometimes gets corrupted and the SD Card write/read is left in a constant loop meaning that the programme doesn't continue, the cause ca...

Re: GPS Ublox NEO6MV2 Module

After buying components for dirt cheap year after year you would think i wouldn't be surprised that it only costs you that much - but it is still surprising! What plans do you have for these little guys? The cost at present of just the neo6 GPS IC would cost me double the price of what the complete...

Re: Beginning C for Arduino: Learn C Programming for the Ard

C language isn't so hard to learn, even easier if you already know another programming language.. I have seen the C Programming for the Arduino book before and I think theres actually a second edition now :)

GPS Ublox NEO6MV2 Module

Hi guys.. Thought I would share this one, I have a few of these GPS boards GYNEO6MV2 and I'm surprised considering the price how well they work!.. If you haven't experimented with GPS before then they maybe a little daunting at first but there is a lot of information on the web. What I like is that ...
