1  Topics / Robotics / Roboduino Bare bones Kit on: March 31, 2011, 05:32:29 am
I recently purchased a roduino board and when a try to contact Curious Collector, to get documentation and instructions, I am directed to a dead link. I've tried contacting them many times, but they never reply. Anyone where I can find parts list for this kit?  I did find a posting in instructable, but it did provide specific parts list or assemly instructions. Can anyone stear me in the right direction?

I try installing Arduino and keep getting this :
"Java Virtual Machine Launcher: Could not find the main class. Program will exit"

I've made sure that I correctly extracted the contents of the Arduino .zip file - in particular that the lib directory is directly inside of the Arduino directory and contains the file pde.jar.

Also, I've already un-installed and re-installed Java.  I'm running JDK 6.21

I was reading the Arduino's Inventor's Guide, and it makes reference to an Arduino Holder.  Where can I buy this?

Other than the required voltage levels, what is the difference between serial and parallel graphic LCDs?  In which situations/for what uses would one be more desirable than the other?  If I had to choose one, which is suggested?  Also, how are LCD backpacks used? Are they a necessity or a convenience?
5  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Interfacing / RTS vs DTR on: November 11, 2010, 02:31:48 am
In choosing an FTDI breakout board, in easy/beginner's terms, what is main difference and advantage/disadvantage of having DTR vs RTS brought out to pin 6? Should I commit to one vs the other? Would it be useful and/or practical to modify a board (like using a mini-switch or header/shunt combo) so that I have the ease and flexibility of being able to switch and choose between the two? Or, do I need to make a more fixed modification like cutting the default trace and using a jumper wire? I just don't know enough to make a decision on which way to go.  I don't mind putting in the extra time up-front to do a modification that will give me useful flexibility.

I have been looking around for an Uno (DIY) kit, with just the SMT components pre-installed.  Turns out, I can't find any kind of Uno kit anywhere.  Is it possible to modify something like a Freeduino SB kit and modify it, so that it incorporates the new features of the Uno?  If not, does anyone know where I can get my hands on an Uno kit? I know that the Uno is pretty cheap, but I like building stuff and don't mind the ultimately higher cost of kits.
