1  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Bugs & Suggestions / Re: Road to solve the delay on the Arduino IDE on: September 11, 2009, 11:20:04 am
I have that same problem with the arduino-0017 IDE on Windows. Incredible delays every time I open a serial monitor, upload something, or when I startup the application.

Has this fixed library been included in the 0017 IDE ? Will it work with 0017?

Thanks

I observe a strange behaviour on some of the SRAM registers on my DS1307 ...

Like in the example, I am resetting the SRAM with

for(int i=0; i<56; i++)
  {
    RTC.set_sram_byte(65,i);
  }


and then reading it with
 RTC.get_sram_data(data);
  for(int i=0; i<56; i++)
  {
    Serial.print(data+0);
    Serial.print(" ");
  }


the result is strange:

65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 18 65 4 65 8 65 3 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65 65

i.e. I seem to have registers 26, 28, 30, 32 which apparently contain other values than what I wrote into them? Anybody got an idea why that might be?

Looking for an alternative to the X-Bee Zigbee modules which I find a bit expensive, I came across the TI CC2430 (see http://focus.ti.com/general/docs/lit/getliterature.tsp?genericPartNumber=cc2430&fileType=pdf )

Has anybody ever looked into that one or maybe even tried to interface it?

Did you manage to reverse engineer the protocol of the Digi temperature/light sensor and the Digi wall router?

I am still wondering if I want to use the Digi X4 together with my Arduino's - somehow I find the Python development environment very clumsy.

Ben,

had a look at your nimbits stuff - I like the idea of using google as a data store.

Do you have some sample arduino code that you would use ? I'd like to test the idea with some temperature logging...

Thanks
Siegfried

What I would really love to have is a "proto shield" that includes the required spacing and circuity to directly mount an xbee module on it. Like the old x-bee shield, but instead of cutting of unused board part, leave some room to put your own circuits on it. Plus of course, make it stackable such that I can add further other shields on top (in my case: I would like to put the S65 shield from Watterott on top to have a display - not only useful for debugging, but also for my final application).

The X-Bee shield really could benefit from a redesign. Why does it have this strange form factor and does not allow to stack anything else on top of it?

Re Starbug -- it would indeed be interesting to know which models of MicroSD card you have found that works. I bought a SanDisk 2GB card, and it doesn't seem to support SPI. None of the microSD card vendors really puts SPI in his 'feature list' and I guess choosing a SDHC card won't help neither...

Hi Starbug, thanks that is interesting information as I was just about to order another micro-SD card to put into the s65 shield. Can you recommend a particular brand that works with the SPI mode? More generally, I also have the Ethernet board and the s65 on the same system, and I am looking for a simple solution to do datalogging of temperature values. Which library would you use, and would you have a recommendation to use either the micro-SD on s65 or the standard SD card on the Ethernet shied? - Regards, Siegfried

Which SD card do you mean, the one on the ethernet shield or the micro-SD card on the S65 shield?

As I understand from the schematics of the S65 shield, it is using quite a number of Digital Pins of the Arduino:
Pin 4: LCD_RS
Pin 5-7: Rotary Encoder
Pin 8: SD_CS
Pin 12-13: SPI Interface
Analog Input 3: LCD_Reset
Analog Input 2: LCD_CS

The Ethernet Shield however should normally - if I understood right - only use Pins 10-13 (SPI).  But I didnt quite see how one could use the SD interface of the Ethernet Shield yet (officially it is "unsupported").
