I'm currently using a BPW41N Photodiode.

How easy to do you think it will be to change that circuit from using a phototransistor to using a photodiode?

Thanks, I will try to do one of these

And see where do I go from there.

More than likely there is a something wrong in the circuit design, we tried breadboarding it too and it did not work, ironically the first time we did the design it did work, but it went berserk from then on.

Can you give me a link about the last thing you said? I'm curious about what photo-detectors are? Can they be interfaced with the Arduino?

Yup to those two questions, what would your idea be ?

Let me know if you got the email? I'm getting mail delivery notifications since your email domain is kinda weird.

We didn't get the correct voltage readings. Give me a email so I can send you the file so you know in more detail what I'm talking about.

I'M talking about something like this.

There are 5 of those PCBs, each one has a photodiode attached to it, and also each PCB is connected to the Arduino. We didn't get it to work, I'm wondering if anyone has done a similar ADS system using a Arduino? I can supply the PDF File which includes all the details if requested.

what..?

Maybe I was a little broad, its for a ADS for a Balloon Sat.

Well, thats seems overly complicated it...anyways... I had a sun sensor design using a arduino using a AD820, thing didn't work ..anyone has a sun sensor design with the Arduino that DOES work ?

Before I actually post what I want to post, how do I attach a PDF file?  :-[

Evening guys, does anyone know a tutorial or manual for the Virtual Breadboard simulator?

Regards,

Hey guys, I was wondering, which microcontroller or FPGA if any is preferred for satellite applications? i.e. cubesat.

Is there any good C manual that I can use as a reference for the Arduino?
