Or, post in the French part of this forum. (A moderator has moved this discussion there already.)

You can use a voltage divider to scale the voltage from 24 to 3.3 (or anything you wish). You might wish to add a 3.3V Zener diode to assure the voltage can never get above 3.3.

Please don't cross-post. It's considered bad form and makes extra work for the moderators.

Hi psydelysid,

What exactly do you mean by "official clones"? According to the Arduino FAQ at,

Which are the official Arduino boards?
The official Arduino boards are the ones listed on the hardware page. These are boards whose manufacturers work with the Arduino team to ensure a good user experience, compatibility with the Arduino software, and a quality product. In return for their status as official boards, the manufacturers pay a licensing fee to the Arduino team to support the further development of the project.
In general, we restrict use of the name "Arduino" to the official boards. If you find a product under a different name but described as "Arduino compatible", it’s probably not an official board and doesn’t fund continued work on the project.

If yours is an official Arduino, it should be listed in the hardware page. Otherwise, you should respect the hard work of the Arduino team and their generosity in making the project open-source. In this case your board might be "Arduino compatible", but you should remove the word "official".

I'm happy to discuss this further to make sure everyone, including you, receives the respect and credit to which they are entitled.

This topic has been moved to Interfacing w/ Software on the Computer . because it fits there better and hopefully you will receive an answer soon.

I have removed some offensive or not useful comments. I would like to encourage everyone to abide by the following principle, adapted from the O'Reilly code of conduct: "[this forum] should be a safe and productive environment for everyone"
23  Development / Suggestions for the Arduino Project / Re: Suggestion for where to buy arduino related products on: December 30, 2012, 05:36:53 am

Welcome to the wonderful world of Arduino. There is much to explore.

To find Arduino resellers, you might start here:

About 2/3 of the way down the page you will find the following, with links:

Japan: MechaRoboShop, Switch Science, Strawberry Linux, Techand, MicroFan, Kyohritsu, TechShare, Androciti

There are probably many other resellers as well.

Good luck and let us know what you build!

Please everybody take a deep breath and start over. I think we all have good intentions here, and sometimes when we are limited to text gentle humor is easily misunderstood.

Let's all give everyone the benefit of the doubt and start over, shall we?

Naserco: I'm not familiar with this device, but one thing that comes to my mind when serial comms are involved is that sometimes I forget and use the TX and RX pins as digital IO for other components. Any chance this is going on?
27  Using Arduino / Networking, Protocols, and Devices / Re: Function generator using AD9835 with Raspberry Pi on: December 23, 2012, 07:38:52 pm
You might ask this question on a Raspberry Pi forum or mailing list. There may be some esoteric behavior of the SPI port on the Pi that we Arduino users are less likely to know about.

Good luck!
28  Using Arduino / Audio / Re: Speech Recognition with BitVoicer and Arduino on: December 02, 2012, 01:57:46 pm
I have sent your question to the company behind BitVoicer, but from the description on the web and the contents of their Arduino library it appears to be as you say:

BitVoicer is a Windows executable which can recognize speech and send  results to a serial port. In this since there is nothing very Arduino specific about it; however, the website provides an Arduino library, very prominently included in the main download section, and someone (perhaps the same person) has also written this nice tutorial.

Good documentation and a well written tutorial are certainly to be appreciated. This might be useful to newcomers to Arduino who need to get voice recognition integrated into an Arduino project with very little time to spend, and have access to a Windows PC.

Mind you, I have not tested this software (nor can I, I'm exclusively Linux), so I'm just responding to what I see in this thread and on the BitVoicer website.

I don't have a full answer to your question but SparkFun sells a CANBUS shield which might be useful

I agree, that seems wrong. Could there be a piece of metal stuck in the USB socket?
