hmmm. so the examples are for the use with PC not arduino/pic/etc?
Don't know, just giving you an example of why you can't run just any old C code on an Arduino. 

yes, i'm well aware that there is an open source project, which i did mentioned in 1 post above.
So why not use that code, or build from that code?

Really dude?  I just googled "DW1000 Arduino" and the very first hit was to a github page with a library for using it on Arduino.  Did you not try that?

General Electronics / Re: Arduino onboard LEDs, what...

If I dab a little solder from the rosin core solder wire onto my soldering tip, does any of that flux make it onto the surfaces to clean/wet or does it cook off pretty quickly?
Don't put solder directly on the tip of a soldering iron, unless you want to pre-tin the tip and clean/wipe it off.
Rosin is needed to solder and it will quickly burns off, making the tin useless.

Heat one of the pads with the tip, and apply a tiny amount of solder where the tip meets the pad.
Quickly, so that there is still rosin left on the pad.
Position the LED with tweezers, and tack that side of the LED.
When happy with it's position, solder the other side of the LED first. Then re-solder the first pad.
Solder quickly (<3seconds), and wait 10 seconds between (re-)soldering.

Project Guidance / Send SMS when 110v power cut
Last post by bphillips - Today at 03:38 am
Newbie looking for some advice.

I'm trying to build a system that will send a SMS message when a light turns off. I have access to the light wiring that I could tap into so that arduino would know the light lost 110v power.

I'm assuming the code would be pretty easy to write.  First I'm trying to figure out hardware requirements. Is this possible? If so, what hardware would I need? If it helps, I have a Windows 7 computer right next to where I'll mount the Arduino.

Thanks,
Brad

Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: IDE Help
Last post by RocketNut - Today at 03:38 am
A question pop into my feeble mind (oh what a head ach). 


Seeing what I am doing. Do think is to much for the Adafruit Feather M0 Adalogger an will not be able to handle this project?

So i still try to understnad why i can't "just" run the code from the examples in arduino.

If it was written for an Arduino then you certainly can.  But an Arduino has one set of hardware.  A PC has another set of hardware.  Trying to use a driver written for a PC on an Arduino would be a lot like following the instructions for a piece of IKEA furniture to put together a bicycle.

The 5050 SMD LEDs sold as 194 sockets for automotive use seem to be pretty temperature stable. I have some running in the same enclosure as my HID lights which get pretty hot, and they've lasted 2-3 years. But I have no way of knowing who actually made them, just something to look into, though.

A C based API for what processor?  It matters.  You can't use this API on Arduino if it was written for a PC.  
Ok. ok. i gave up.

Here is the link to the DW1000 sensor.

there is an arduino opensource project that uses it.


So i still try to understand why i can't "just" run the code from the examples in arduino.

How can I do that? I searched on internet but I didnt find something specific..
Time to start studying the Holy Datasheet.
