I believe that's due to IE.  There are numerous threads about IE issues with this site.  Use Firefox.

Then there is a conflict in the code.  Post it with code tags.

No need to ask the same question in different sections of the forum.  This will lead to you getting a ban.

48  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: Help: API8108A Chip info? on: August 10, 2013, 08:57:23 pm
Well, I have no experience with that chip or ever heard of that company.  So I got curious and wanted to help out.

After about an hour of searching, I finally found their website, http://www.aplusinc.com.tw/
I was getting the impression that they didn't even have a website.  I would imagine that they are not very popular and don't get site hits..

But anyway, here is their software page, http://www.aplusinc.com.tw/exec/msg.php?mid=13&cid=3&pid=13&lg=E.  This is the only page where I found any software, but it's listed as "Update."

Let me know if this is what you were after.

Tools>Board  Select the correct option for 328.  Is it a 328 or 328p?
Tools> Burn Bootloader.

Did some more testing and you're right.  After I hooked it up the right way it worked..  But now I have a problem with relays 4, 6, 7, and 8.  They do nothing.  Going to check my soldering tomorrow.

I do have some revisions for the board to make it easier to assemble though, but really only cosmetic..

Thanks to everyone

I see your point.  It's getting late here so I will try tomorrow doing some more troubleshooting.

Thanks Crossroads.  +1

What is Vcc connected to?

Vcc is 24V supply.  Now that I am looking closer, do I have Vcc and +5V backwards?

What do IN1-IN5 connect to?

IN1-8 are Arduino inputs to activate the optos.

Well, I finally got around to assembling the relay board and guess what?  It doesn't work..  No LEDs, nothing.  When the 24V is connected I am getting ~21V on the Arduino input pins..

If anyone could take a look at my Eagle files, would appreciate any insight.

Nice work, I have yet to make a cube and I've been using Arduino for ever..  I have like 5 Arduinos and countless custom Arduinos.  I think I will put a SMD LED version on the drawing board..

Thanks scswift.  Got them today.  Nice packaging too!

Nice! Would like to see some pics of what you've printed?

Haven't printed anything worth a Nobel prize..  I am in the process of teaching myself 3D design and tried a number of CAD programs.  I think I found one that suits me, Solidworks.

Here is a clevis that costs around $12 and made it for pennies


Other things include a hood for my camera and some upgrade parts for the 3D printer.

Looks good!  But the true test is how it performs.  I think your soldering job looks better than mine and I use hot air with paste for my SMD work..

The point was it's faster using Google to answer questions than to post.  I probably could have worded it better..
