1  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / iPod Digitizer & Arduino on: February 13, 2013, 11:17:11 am
Hi People,

i accidentially bought a iPod Digitizer to replace my girls broken iPod and then found out it is virtually impossible to just replace the Digitizer without also replacing the LCD. So now i ordered a complete unit for the repair project, leaving the touchscreen for alternative uses, not a big loss, as the Digitizer was just 10€. Any hints on how to use the Touchscreen with the Arduino? I just found this, which is not really of great Help:

thanks,
t.

Would it be safer / more accurate / versatile / easier to use this chip that i found now?

High-Side Measurement CURRENT SHUNT MONITOR
http://www.adafruit.com/datasheets/ina169.pdf

if i understand correctly this thing would allow measureing current and has a voltage divider, true?

EDIT: My Mistake, no Voltage divider, just current
3  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Voltage Logging / Multimeter with Arduino on: January 31, 2013, 07:08:32 am
Hi,

i am building a rig to power my AV Devices (Camera, Harddisk-Recorder etc.pp.) using a V-Mount Battery and a Voltage Converter like this:
http://www.lanparte.com/html/129.html

Basically the converter transforms the 14.4v V-Mount Battery output to all sorts of voltages commonly used in the video world.
I have a problem though that i need to analyze, because on one port the voltage seems to be dropping occasionally, causing my camera to reset.

I was looking into multimeters with USB Logging output, but the time-resolution (1 measurement per second) seems not exact enough to find the cause.
Then i tried to find "multimeter" shields for the arduino, without success. Seriously, right now i don't want to go into building my own voltage dividers, as - as far as i understand electronics - they should use involve isolated circuits as the V-Mount batteries are quite powerful and i dont want to do anythin wrong, as i am not very experienced with electronics.

I found this, which seems perfect:

but additionally to the 19$ for the sensor, they charge almost 50$ shipping which is out of the question.
Can anyone advise a not so pricy, accurate solution for what i want to do: like i said, i would happily buy a shield but i didnt find any. So whats the best way to go for me?

cheers, t.

so here we go:
Just wanted to point you to something i just found in the the PD externals repository:

http://pure-data.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/pure-data/trunk/externals/mrpeach/

in mrpeachs externals there is slipenc and slipdec
so following your idea of using oscuino, this should bring us closer without shelling out money for the ethernet shield, no smiley-wink ?
