Zterm works very nicely as well 

But you've got to admit that R2_'s icon beats ZTerm's any time smiley I love it.

Hi,

ah, there it is.

The directory "applet" in my sketch directory also reveals how it's all running beneath the surface. All the intermediate files seem to be there. Now it's making sense.

Thanks for the pointer.

Hi,

I just started playing with Arduino and it all works sweet as.

One question though: can someone explain (or point me to some info on the website) how the proces works going from a source file in the Arduino IDE to what gets sent to the board when I upload the code to it?

I assume my code gets compiled by something into something else, and in the end, a bunch of bytes gets sent to the board but would like some clarification smiley-wink What about libraries and stuff? Is there a linker involved?

Thanks,

Bas.

BTW, the image for the breadboard version doesn't show up on that page (arduino_breadboard_shield.png doesn't exist)

On this page: http://www.tigoe.net/pcomp/code/archives/arduino/000760.shtml , the image does show up.

Me so confused!

You're not the only one smiley-wink

I received the same version that you are describing only mine had the labels "+5v" and "ground" removed with a pen or something.

Would be great if http://www.tigoe.net/pcomp/code/archives/arduino/000729.shtml got updated for this version of the board. BTW, the image for the breadboard version doesn't show up on that page (arduino_breadboard_shield.png doesn't exist).

Hi mellis,

no worries, thanks for clarifying. I'll just give at a shot as soon as I have my i2c slave and see how it works out.

Cheers,

Bas.

You should be able to hook up I2C devices using the Wire library, but it's not been fully tested or debugged.  See: http://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/Libraries and http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1163405566;start=all

Arghhh. As a newbie, I'm having problems interpreting "should be able to" smiley-wink I'm not sure if I should pursue experimenting with i2c using Arduino or use something else. It's going to be hard enough for me as it is without adding extra complexity by not trusting my Arduino actually is a proper i2c citizen and hence spend a lot of time on getting that part to work.

Can anyone comment on the issues with Arduino and i2c as far as low-level things are concerned, you know, the electrical levels etc.?

it appears that i2c is included in this release

I'm getting some mixed signals on whether I can hook up i2c devices with the Arduino.

Can someone clarify?

Thanks,

Bas.

Hi Kuk,

maybe I wasn't clear. My question is: how do you manage to physically connect wires to those teeny weeny small connectors on the display? I tried soldering wires directly on to them and I failed miserably, destroying 2 connectors (or rather 2 "pins", out of the 8 on the bottom/back of the display).

Are there connectors for sale somewhere that you can snap on that are easier to solder wires onto? If not, what's the trick to solder wires onto the display's connector?

I got 2 new 3310 lcd's off of ebay, for about 1$ each. Pretty cheap but would hate to ruin them as well smiley-wink

Thanks,

Bas.

Hi,

there seem to be lots of pages describing how to hook one of these 3310 lcd's up but can anyone give me some pointers on how to go about to physically connect the darned thing? I followed the procedure on this page: http://www.microsyl.com/nokialcd/nokialcd.html , but simply couldn't get those wires soldered to the tiny connector! And made 2 of those little bits come off so now I need to look for another one smiley-sad

How do you guys wire the thing up?!?
