Not bad, what's inside the black box?

If there are still PCB's available i would love to get one.
The first batch I made sold out, I've got a new batch with the revised schematic that includes a boost circuit for higher voltage programming.  They're on their way back from China now, should have them by Christmas. Maybe much sooner. I'll post back when I've got them assembled and ready to go. smiley

I used an ATTiny85 with the CapSense library to control the LED light strips I'm using for lighting in my living room. Nice simple real world use of Arduino.. smiley

Yeah, I understand at 16MHz it could be a problem, so that rules out the Teensy++ 2.0, but the Teensy 3.0 runs at 96MHz.. Not sure how a $13 Teensy gets up to $24, but it's your gadget, I was just trying to thing of a simpler solution. I do like the shield setup, I made a similar one for the Arduino DUE that includes VGA output, so you could use an old small LCD. But man, if you want to see expensive, that'd be the DUE for sure.

Very cool. Given how cheap something like the Teensy 3.0 is, perhaps this whole thing could be rolled into that very fast/high performance chip, for a simpler, single board/chip solution? Or if you need the 5v support, perhaps the Teensy++ 2.0 could do it? It's got a fair bit of ram onboard compared to the 328..

Ok, the board works well enough that I know the minor fixes will solve the minor mistakes of the first batch. I went ahead and listed them as a fundraiser on Tindie. Hope you don't mind me linking to your video stimmer, that was a pretty epic demonstration. smiley

Ok, the shield I made "works".. I got the polarity backwards on the composite jack, the silkscreen is backwards on the jumpers, so you have to select VGA for composite, and composite for VGA.. DOH.. And the audio output jack is 2.5mm rather than 3.5mm.. It all works, so I'm going to respin the board and have another batch made. Anyone want one of these mostly working boards?
Great job on the library guys. I went ahead and added a jack for a Wii nunchuck adapter to the next rev, maybe someone can use this shield and this library to write video games. smiley

I've got the DAC's capacitively decoupled from each other, and from the amp chip, definitely don't want to blow my or anyone else's DAC's. I'll keep everyone posted on when the parts come in, and I've had a chance to test out the board.

I created a shield to utilize this awesome library you made. I need to order a few more components before I can be sure I got it right, but I suspect it will work fine. I used jumpers to isolate the composite video resistors from the VGA resistors, and I went ahead and tossed in an LM386 amplifier hooked to the DAC0 and DAC1 pins with an audio out jack (may have accidentally selected the very small size audio jack, oops). Oh, and VGA has i2c data, I went ahead and broke out those pins. I left out support for monochrome mode, it just made things more manageable in the PCB layout.
I made a whole bunch of the boards, so once I confirm they actually work, I'll have them up on my Tindie store as DIY kits.. smiley
11  Products / Arduino Due / Re: Do not follow Simple Audio Player example - DAC0 now non-functional on DUE on: July 21, 2013, 05:47:23 pm
The example is still the same. One more fried DAC0. I emailed support. Please change this example.
http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/SimpleAudioPlayer   It ONLY shows how to use an LM386 amplifier, and clearly says "Warning: do not connect the speaker directly to the pins of the Arduino Due."

heh, at least, not without lifting the pins off the board and running some crazy jumper wires.. smiley

Not to mention going from 96k of ram to 2k..
Great work on this library. I've been looking for something cool to do with my Due, now I may have found it. smiley

Where do you feed the battery backup power into the DUE to keep the RTC awake while it's powered down?

Why use a Mega when the DUE is out now? The DUE has oodles of ram, as well as having a native CAN bus. It'd make an awesome ECM.
