Look at adding a Maxim MAX3140 which has a SPI compatible UART with a RS485/422 interface. Connect it to the SPI port and you have a second UART.

Nice looking ROV. What materials are you using for its construction?

I'm looking for a datasheet for the Nintendo DS LCD or its IC controller, can anyone help?

I've googled but drawn a blank smiley-sad

Another device to consider is the TPIC6B595 from TI which is basically a 595+2803. But be aware that its pin outs are not the same as the 595.  :exclamation

Hi Simon

Check Dorkbot for any groups near you.

Also check for any local Maker Spaces. I know its not actually on your doorstep but Manchester has a FabLab with open days on a Saturday.

theres a shop near me selling the Big Trak again for £35  smiley-wink Brings back memories  smiley-grin

I've seen them in Maplins for £29, but I picked mine up from a carboot sale a couple of years ago. I fancy getting a Bigtak Jr to hack but they're priced at £29 as well, I might wait a while and pick one up cheap in the New Year sales  smiley-wink

but they sure do bring back some good memories  smiley

http://www.robotroom.com/BigTrak.html is a nice site for Big Trak fans

Following suggestions we are having a project session, a bit like Howduino. Bring along your works in progress, share them with others and see if someone can help you solve that persistent problem you've been having.

We will have some soldering irons and basic tools. Let us know if there is anything else you think we need that you can't bring?

We will be in the Lifelab Junior Lab (same entrance as usual, it's just upstairs from our usual room), I'll get the usual beer etc supply lined up as well.

Bring your Arduino projects (finished or unfinished) or any physical or digital works in progress along for some group therapy.

Newcastle Centre of Life 18.30 - 22.00 on Thursday 25th November.

The Howduino weekend was a great success.

A big thanks to Adrian and Thom from Howduino and Lee and Ian from the Centre of Life for organising and running the event.

We all had a lot of fun make the Arduino fly, drive, spin and display :-)
