Topic: AS1130 First attempt - working (Read 21 times) previous topic - next topic


Hope you feel better soon funky mate.... :smiley-roll-sweat:


The AS1130 runs completely independently once the microcontroller has told it what to do.

Basically, you set up the registers, upload the frame and PWM data and tell it to start...it then runs on it's own.

While it is running you can upload more data and it'll display that.

All this is explained in the first post of this thread along with the answer to all your other questions.... ;)
I'm allowed to have it 'cos it's not sharp.

Read the sketch posted in the first post....and here http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php?topic=123071.0

BTW the speed of the processor is irrelevant it is only used as a master on the serial bus to send commands and data.

I don't really understand every english expression

I'm not being rude but I think the basic problem is that this is not a chip to be playing with if you are a complete beginner.
If you need to ask questions like the ones you have asked (both in the PMs and in the Forum) then you need to start at a more basic level.

Questions like "what if I don't use an eeprom?" and "what language is used?" tell me that either:

a) you are a complete beginner
b) you can't be bothered reading the sample code or the data sheet.

I suggested to you that you build the system and use the supplied code to get the thing working....THEN ask questions about any problems you have (which I will be pleased to answer) or if you are really a beginner then try some simple matrix led experiments to give you a better understanding.

It took me many hours reading the datasheet of this chip to finally get a good understanding of it's functions...but I have a long background both in software and hardware and started off from a position of 'knowing' how to manipulate registers, write code etc.  ;) (also the English in the datasheet is not very accurate in some places!)

I'm not trying to put you off but just think that you are trying to run before you can walk (as we say in English  :smiley-mr-green:)

You will need a breakout board to be able to use the AS1130 if you don't already have a board.  The chip doesn't come in a DIP package, it comes in a SSOP-28 package so you won't be able to stick it in a breadboard when you get it.
Accelerate to 88 miles per hour.


ALL your questions HAVE been answered you are just not understanding/listening/making any effort.

I see little point in continuing with this until you have a specific question about something you don't understand in the datasheet.
