46  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Optiboot onto a custom 328P & FT232RQ problem on: October 22, 2013, 11:53:47 am
Please read the 4th line of my post.
47  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Optiboot onto a custom 328P & FT232RQ problem on: October 22, 2013, 11:46:02 am
I'm having no luck getting my custom board with the 328P & FT232RQ to  accept a sketch. The setup is:

-using the 1.0.5 IDE
-installed the [optiboot] Arduino Pro or Pro Mini (3.3V, 8Mhz) w/ Atmega328 with the AVRtinyISP through the IDE
-total success installing the Arduino Pro or Pro Mini (3.3V, 8Mhz) w/ Atmega328 with the AVRtinyISP through the IDE so the hardware and programmer are all fine.

When I try and upload a sketch it pauses and then I see an error.

48  Community / Gigs and Collaborations / Fritzing parts creator needed on: October 22, 2013, 11:27:20 am
I'm looking for someone to create a small OLED display part in Fritzing. The display is something that I made and using Fritzing now I can drop in the Arduino, wires and resistors but have no idea or time to figure out how to create a custom part.
The job would be to create a display part. No linking to footprint or schematic part needed. I just need a screenshot of how to wire it. It should be a quick job so just let me know how much it would cost.

Thanks,

Just read your post now and knew that the capacitor was the problem. I've been in the exact same situation and spent a few days on and off until I found the problem. That was a tough one.

Sometimes when you work on a project for a while and get stuck you just need to walk away, clear your head and go at it again. Usually the solution comes to you then.
I have no experience setting fuses. So far I've been cheating by simply clicking Burn Bootloader from the IDE. I'd also like to modify the crystal frequency and maybe the PID but I have no idea where to begin.

Nice project! I've always considered creating my own. Where can I find one of the large coils? Would a speaker work once the back paper is pulled off?

After working on the board the next morning I discovered another hardware issue on the power supply that was causing the problem. I removed the three micros with a hot air tool to another board and they work fine.

It sounds like it may still be possible to recover them after all. That's great! I'm using 8Mhz resonators right now.
54  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / 328P micros possibly damaged, initialization failed, rc=1 on: September 21, 2013, 08:10:02 pm
I may have damaged a few 328P micros while trying to get bootloaders in using a AVRtinyISP through the IDE. After going through three brand new 328P I discovered that I has a 10Meg pull up resistor in the reset line instead of a 10K. When programming in the bootloader with 10M resistors in place I could start installing the bootloader but it would give an error message at the final stage. Now that the proper 10K is in place when I try and put in a fresh bootloader I get an immediate error message of initialization failed, rc=1. Is there an easy way to save these micros? I've also tried programming in a blink sketch directly, without any bootloader at all but I get the same error message.

A while ago I started making my own Arduino derivatives and had success burning bootloaders into different Atmel chips. Check out https://sites.google.com/site/0miker0/Designing-your-custom-Arduino-Board

I signed up on the Adafruit site to be notified when they are in stock which hopefully will be very soon.

For work projects I use http://www.apcircuits.com/ which does cheap prototype boards but has expensive shipping. For my hobby designs I also use oshpark but getting it though customs up here takes 3-4 weeks.

58  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Faster i2c speed? on: August 31, 2013, 03:47:08 pm
All delays have been removed and the display is i2c which I believe is slower than SPI. I found something of interest here: http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php/topic,16793.0.html
Faster i2c was just an idea and a possibility for a quick fix.
59  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Faster i2c speed? on: August 31, 2013, 07:47:35 am
I have an 8Mhz 328P with an animation on a small i2c display working pretty slow. I thought I could speed it up slightly by adding the line TWBR = 12, 2 or 24 to the void setup(void) under wire.begin(); but the animation speed is always exactly the same. Overclocking for test purposes is fine.

I could grab 10pcs or so but 600 pcs is pretty crazy.
