1156  Development / Other Hardware Development / Re: What does JP2 do on the Arduino Uno Rev3? on: March 14, 2012, 12:16:21 am
May be these ATmega16U2 have some pin;s open and freely usable but hardly they would be used as not many would be messing with the Bootloading code, these guys are messing with the Simplicity of the Board.

i remember one post back where Nick posted about Rev3 pin-outs saying that these headers have made it further hard to use that mounting hole as this was the only hole because the other one parallel to it is already filled with Caps and power jack making it very hard to use in mounting.

Moreover these new changes must be clarified by the Arduino team this is not the way , if the forum is filled with pretty much experienced guys this doesn't means that they gonna shed the responsibility on forum;s nice guys.

JP 2 is for?

Hi Tyler, you can also get USB to Serial conversion of a Nokia cable(DKU-5or something like this one common characteristic is Big frame at USB side) so may be you do not even need to buy a FTDi if one is lying around with no use they basically have a prolific pl-2303 chip.

Might be a western thing.

Acceptable! but i keep him addressed with some fun stuff from Western states  smiley-wink but these days it has become hard to entertain him because he kinda doesn't have fun!(may be he's turned sufficiently old for it  smiley-grin smiley-mr-green)

I don't why I keep it. Hmm... recycle the parts, maybe.

May be recycle , Are you talking about malfunctioned chip here? if yes how come?

@ Mr. Nick , That is Advent and becomes a problem.
1161  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Likelihood of fake atmega8 on: March 13, 2012, 10:24:43 pm
or me mishandling them that has caused them to become more and more difficult?

You mishandling them has made ATmega's difficult and where i have been hostile? , DO you NOT see please in my statements?

1162  Community / Bar Sport / Re: Im Sorry.....R.I.P. on: March 13, 2012, 02:47:28 pm
it's an in-joke; there's no actual steam or smoke inside the chips....OR IS THERE?????

My Dad brought us up by making and selling circuit's, Didn't hear it from him ever will tell him  smiley-wink smiley-wink smiley-grin

I once saw a power transistor in a TO-220 package that we'd temporarily soldered onto the board without its heatsink for a "quick" test desolder itself and fall onto the floor when the test went a little too long.

I have experience in blasting that too. smiley-mr-green smiley-mr-green

How likely is it that they are fake/made by someone other than atmel or me mishandling them that has caused them to become more and more difficult?

typo here please reframe the statement.

Weaker print doesn't mean that the ATmega is fake ,Please drop this notion forever because i have many ATmega including i got from original Arduino all are weak print.

I had 4 ATmega168's ,2 ATmega8 one free othe loaded with Bootloader, 3 328P's all are dull printed.

Now at the point of only one of them returning an id other than 0xffffff...

Please clarify further.
1164  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Erase Bootloader? on: March 13, 2012, 01:45:20 pm
Bootloader is a programme that GIVEN its loaded onto the chip rests itself locked at one place in the chip and it stores the incoming Binary in the rest of the space on flash memory of the chip.

or else if its not there like in your case if you Burn the chip then the flash memory gets programmed from the very first memory block of flash over riding the Bootloader as a result.

Graynomad is right. Internally the most of integrated circuits only work with magic steam.

But why it is called Magic Steam any explanation to that ,any specific composition of that smoke that makes Mr,Rob define it like this or its only this that it happens due to fumes(because fine wires burn) within the chip that become stuck in a closed frame and blast out?

Back in tech school (1991) I remember a student hooked up a 555 backward

Some old memories  smiley-razz revived!
1166  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: using a digitalpin to check for 5v on a wire on: March 13, 2012, 12:29:47 pm
Directly give it a connection via some small 150-200ohm resistance and use in the code offcourse after setting pin as input.
please make sure the input is max 5v DC.

1167  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: Arduino relay control - Why the resistor and transistor? on: March 13, 2012, 12:22:53 pm

Well a lot my Seniors CrossRoads and Crosh have defined  already.
but on following:

So the Arduino is limited to an output of 5V @ 35mA?

I want to say that it's a lot(the current), always the Micro-ontrollers which ever you take up whether they are picaxe(another nice forum backed microcontroller) also the many others like PIC, Parallel Propeller etc all supply current nearby this level only, The thing they are there to process the code made by you and then achieve the final result via. supporting circuitry the same you are doing now giving resistance and diode and a relay to handle high current stuff.
                                                      Not only Microcontroller/Microprocessor's work like this other sort of IC's also call for supporting circuitry to achieve a goal.

Wow, your mum rocks! Happy Birthday mate!

My mom, your mom, everybody's mom is already super cool for their respective Kids! its just that his mom is a good observationist and also accepts deeply what her boy loves to do or learn towards.

Happy Birthday! kid anyways Hope you shine like a star in life like Power LED on a Arduino and may success in your life speeds up like Tx Rx LED speedily blink when you load code.

EDIT:  smiley-cool ICSP got 6 pins!  smiley , I think she also loves this stuff a lot bring her on Arduino forum sometime.  smiley

Mostly plastic

there's a bio degradable plastic type material too , do any of these guys manufacturing IC's use it?

Upgrade the wrist thingy to a GLCD. You can get a 128 x 160

Don't you think its too big  for a wrist  even a GLCD 128x64 is Big also the size of a Wrist mountable LCD would be > Wrist watch as much big as it doesnot become a overhead on your wrist.

I think the LCD the one i attached is the most appropriate, rest is your choice  smiley-mr-green
