1  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: OSEPP (ARDUINO COMPATIBLE) VS ARDUINO on: March 24, 2012, 12:11:13 am
Just bought one of these today at MicroCenter. The back of the package had a sticker advising to use the Nano or Duemilanuove as the board type. A trip to their web site mentioned an issue with the bootloader and said to use the above settings instead of Uno...

Honestly I'd rather use that bootloader than the Uno.

The board seems to be well made and works exactly as I needed it to. Just like my other clones/compatibles.

I recently built a Sanguino. I've not had time to do much with it other than test it with a few of the stock 'example' sketches. What are you trying to upload? If using stock sketches for the Arduino you need to change pins and such.

EDIT: I am using the files provided by Sanguino folks with IDE 0022.

For example, the Blink sketch. The LED on pin 13 in the stock sketch needs to be changed to pin 0 on the sketch to use the red LED on the Sanguino...

Some code samples might be a good idea.
3  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Tiny85 breakout board...Will it hurt to leave a resonator in the circuit? on: March 28, 2011, 08:47:28 pm
I was going to make one and have Dorkbot make the PCBs for me. I then found these:

http://allgaiershops.com/index.php?cPath=22

At $2.99 each I could not make them myself. Includes everything but the MCU. I bought one each of their breadboard adapters (Tiny25, Tiny2313, Tiny84, Tiny/Mega 48/88 etc). With shipping they were less than $4 each to my door.

Assembly was simple. The boards are well made. Complete parts etc.

I'd buy from them again in a heartbeat.

Excellent. That is what I suspected. The board is very tightly packed. I did not want to solder the resonator in only to find an issue. Clean removal of the resonator would not be easy.

This board makes a super easy way to program these Tinys without the hassles of a breadboard and a mess of wires.
5  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Tiny85 breakout board...Will it hurt to leave a resonator in the circuit? on: March 28, 2011, 06:36:15 pm
I've got a nice little breakout board that gives me an ISP header and pins that plug into a bread board. The thing has the component location for and included a 16MHz resonator. Since most of the Tiny85s I tinker with have no need for an external resonator I have not yet soldered the resonator into the breakout board.

If I were to go ahead and solder the resonator to the board will this cause me problems if I do not set fuses for an external oscillator and upload hex files compiled to use the internal oscillator?

Thanks.
6  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Issue loading sketches to Sanguino. IDE 0022, Ubuntu 10.10 [solved] on: March 23, 2011, 02:04:32 pm
This is now working. I thought about what I had done differently on my previous install.

Via apt-get I had to install the Arduino (0018) software from the Ubuntu repository. It appears the install also grabbed some dependencies needed. Once installed the 0022 software just works.

Bleah.

7  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Issue loading sketches to Sanguino. IDE 0022, Ubuntu 10.10 on: March 23, 2011, 01:21:07 pm
Well foo. It won't build for other boards either....

I've reinstalled the software from a freshly downloaded package. Still broken.

Ubuntu 10.01 AMD64 with the 64 bit Linux package.

This was working previously. I had to rebuild my system over the weekend due to a failing hard disk.

Crap. I have not tried that since reloading the software. The only hacking I've done is on the new Sanguino I built. I'll give it a spin tomorrow when I get into my workroom/office again.

I finished building a Sanguino last night. I've downloaded the files from the Sanguino project and installed as directed.

I can upload the bootloader to the board on the linux machine via the IDE and my USBasp ISP programmer. However when I attempt to upload a 'blink' sketch via the IDE to the Sanguino I get these errors:

What's really screwy is the Sanguino uploads work just fine via the IDE on my Mac with the 0022 IDE installed.... I have the blink sketch running via the upload from my Mac.

I'm using the same files from the Sanguino web site. I've checked and it does not look like a permissions issue on the Linux system.

Any ideas?

Thank you in advance.

10  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: "Programmer is not responding" error only in linux on: March 22, 2011, 04:45:33 am
This sounds like a permissions issue.

If you were to try and access the board from the command line with avrdude what happens?

First see if it works from the command line. If that fails add 'sudo' to the beginning of the command.

If that works you'll need to add a rules file to your system.

See here (in the Linux section) for more details:

http://www.ladyada.net/make/usbtinyisp/avrdude.html

You'll need to replace the VID and PID with that of your programmer.

I had to do this to get my USBASP programmer to work from the IDE on my Ubuntu workstation.
11  General Category / General Discussion / Re: getting a sanguino to work on: March 21, 2011, 11:43:14 pm
Dave,

Quick question... Have you installed a bootloader on the Sanguino? The one time I saw an error like that I had somehow managed to munge the bootloader on an ATmega328. Reburn the bootloader and all was well.

I don't know what you have for a programming device but installing a bootloader via the IDE and my USBasp programmer was painless.

I have a similar USBasp and I get the same messages. I've been told it's nothing to worry about.

So I don't worry and just burn my sketches...  smiley-roll

Crossroads,

That breadboard setup works with both an ISP programmer and an Arduino as an ISP. At least both methods work here in my scary little lab...

Titanium... I'm out of money this week so no toys in the budget. Hopefully I'll have some money left in my PayPal next week...

*sigh*
14  Development / Other Hardware Development / Eagle Autorouter will not route my board. on: March 16, 2011, 01:39:34 am
I'm trying to make a breakout board for a QSOP16 package. I've got the board layout done but cannot get this to autoroute. When I click on the autoroute button it does it's thing and then just sits there saying 0.0% done.

I've even disabled the bottom layer. Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Titanium...

Thank you for both the work to make these function with our Arduinos and the hunt for the sources.

Dunno why but I have always liked VFD displays. (I've been accused of being odd.) smiley-wink

If I have any money left next week I'll see about buying one of those NCR displays you offer.
