If you have ICSP you don't need serial.  Basically no arduino boot loader.  However I would breakout the JTAG pins so that you can do some debugging if need be.
2  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: Powering Arduino with a buck converter on: February 21, 2014, 01:28:01 pm
I am asking as everything I am doing is custom.

This is the DC/DC converter I will be using.  I want as clean a signal as possible.  I checked the simulations in LTSpice and my ripple is about 27mV for my 3.3V supply and 3.6mV for my 5V supply. 
Would you say that is clean enough for adequate performance?

Hi,
Has anyone got some experience on powering an arduino using a buck converter?
I plan on using the ADCs on the chip.

Would I need any filtering circuits? if so can someone recommend somewhere that has some reference designs or if anyone has some they have used before.
Thanks
4  Development / Other Software Development / Arduino USB to Serial Firmware on: January 18, 2014, 07:32:03 pm
Hi,
I cannot seem to find the firmware file for the Arduino USB to Serial Light board firmware.  Would be really helpful to get a copy of it.  I found the firmware for the different versions that come on the new Unos and Megas.  Would make my life so much easier to just get the standalone version firmware.
Any help would be great.
5  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: save data from HTTP Client sketch to buffer on: September 13, 2013, 11:07:20 am
Could you provide some example code for the malloc()?
I thought that progmem had a limited amount of read/writes?
The data is then passed into specific buffers that are used for settings and configurations for my device.
6  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / save data from HTTP Client sketch to buffer on: September 13, 2013, 06:25:09 am
Hi I am using the HTTP Client sketch as seen below to load some data from a web page.  However this data can come in different sizes so I don't want to just define a massive array at the beginning and fill it as needed.  I would prefer to define an array of the required size.  I cant use eeprom or progmem because this read occurs once every 10 seconds.  The data ranges between the longest
Code:
8@xx50.00,xxx0.00:xx99.00,xxx0.00
xx50.00,xx50.00:xx50.00,xx50.00
xx50.00,xx50.00:xx50.00,xx50.00
xx50.00,xx50.00:xx50.00,xx50.00
xx50.00,xx50.00:xx50.00,xx50.00
xx50.00,xx50.00:xx50.00,xx50.00
xx50.00,xx50.00:xx50.00,xx50.00
xx50.00,xx50.00:xx50.00,xx50.00
and the shortest
Code:
1@xx50.00,xxx0.00:xx99.00,xxx0.00


Code:
void parseDeviceInfo(){
  delay(100);
  Serial.println("Device Info");
  while (deviceinfoclient.available()) {
    char c = deviceinfoclient.read();
    Serial.print(c);
  }
 
  // if the server's disconnected, stop the client:
  if (!deviceinfoclient.connected()) {
    Serial.println("disconnecting.");
    deviceinfoclient.stop();
    deviceinfoclient.flush();
 
    delay(3000);
 
    deviceinfoconnect();
  }
}

The companies that we used were quite good.  But you have to make sure you specify EVERYTHING exactly as you want it.  Also unless you are dealing with large quantities you will need to supply your own parts.  You should however do this for any specialty high value parts.  (We post the sensors we use out as they are hellish expensive) If you do this you know they are yours.

I think the project has somewhat stalled.  I have tried to message the original contributors with no results.  smiley-sad

A quick google search would have pulled up what you need or even looking at the arduino site tutorials.

You use the ICSP pins.

Ahhhh
That would make sense, thank you.  I decided to drop support for serial which has made life a little easier.

Hi, I am trying to port 2boots to the Arduino Mega (running a 3.3v and 8Mhz)

The following code seems to produce this error message can someone shed some light please?

I use a company in china for my assembly.  They charge me about $6 per board and a setup cost of about $250.  That includes the manufacture of the PCB as well. 
Good quality boards.  Shipping to the UK normally costs me about £35

My goal is to place a sketch on the SD Card and run program that sketch to the chip itself or run the sketch off the chip.  travelvietnam I am using pin 53 as chip select for the SD
