Re: Christmas ornament project

I think I'm with Brad here, and controlling the brightness of the leds might be an issue. When lighting up several leds on a row at the same time will seem more dimmer than only lighting up a single led on a row. But yes nice Diptrace design and I like the schematics. Just a thought are you disablin...

Re: Clueless iPhone users tricked into drilling into their i

That reminds me when PC's started fading out the 9 pin serial port connector, I used to use that port with many peripherals, USB replacements hadn't been released yet or even work correctly!. Till this day I've still got an old PC running and old OS with many 9pin serial ports :lol: you just never k...

Re: How to Arduino Kuman 37 Sensor Module The Starter Kit Ro

well it was http://www.bradselectronicsshop.com.au But unfortunately people didn't seem to want to buy anything from there (after a few months I had sold maybe a dozen items) So I shut it down :) I am now offloading bits and pieces on ebay. I guess it's hard to complete these days! I thought it was...

Re: What are the topics you need to know to master microcont

It's a world of discovery and once you start doing something (anything!) with a microcontroller like blinking an LED, you will start to find that you can blink it at different speeds, you can have it on for longer than it is off, you can add an extra LED, you can add a button or potentiometer to co...

Custom Surface Mount PCB Stencils

Over the last few years I have used custom made PCB stencils and they make it so easy to solder your own PCB boards, especially when you have a PCB with small SMD components. Here are a few good links I have used and would recommend. If you have any then please share :) smtstencil: (Offer an A4 shee...

Re: What projects have you been working on lately

Good idea for a topic Brad :) Beginning of this year I got into another hobby, Drones... So I have been building up a few models from kits and different components to get what I wanted. I am currently in the making of my own FPV Ground Station (FPV = First Person View) It would allow me to view the ...

Re: led flasher problem

As we are on that topic, can I just mention that it is possible to have multiple Pickit2's running with multiple GUI's on one PC. This is possible by giving each PicKit2 an ID, and this is done via the PicKit2 GUI. You can then select the GUI with the corresponding PicKit2 and programme the selected...

Re: led flasher problem

for some reason GPIO 5 is set whereas all the others are cleared as they should be (except for GPIO 1 which we are using for the flasher). In you're code you have setup TRISIO which will set the port pin functions, but you don't seem to have any code which tells the port pins what to actual output....

Re: led flasher problem

Are you sure that the leds are stuck on, or is it just appear that way? The 'delay' routine only provides 1.5ms of delay at 4MHz so I doubt you'd be able to see much of anything. I've cleaned up the code a bit and added a 'longdelay' routine. Change the 'call delay' to 'call longdelay' and see if t...

Re: Christmas Tree Project

I was just thinking, if you do another version later on, maybe you could have six connections per board - the extra connection could be data out. That way you could have one 'master' tree which sends data through to all the other trees! Yes when I received the boards and built them, I thought about...
