 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello,

I am currently doing a project that will include power line communication using two mamba shield:
https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10918
I am using the Arduino uno R3.

My main problem is that I foolishly went ahead and bought the two mamba shield's before doing too much research on them. Turns out the internet is pretty much empty when it comes to examples/guides. Other breakout boards I have bought I managed to get working through trial and error and looking through example codes, which I can't do with this one as there isn't enough out there.

So I am just looking for anyone with experience using them just to point me in the right direction. Ultimately they will be used to send two sensor readings from one Arduino to the other. With all communication going in the one direction.

Cheers

There are two links on Sparkfun's page. What results did you get when running the sample code?

First time it managed to compile, once uploaded nothing happened. From what I have read else were people were saying that the example code doesn't work for Arduino 1.0. There is a step-by-step guide on the litesprite website which I tried to follow, but again it is for versions before Arduino 1.0

I am still going over the example codes trying to work out what is doing what, and putting serial.print's in to see if it is getting stuck anywhere.

It's a bit confusing as the example programing has some of the bits in that I would of thought to be in a header file, so making it hard to follow the path (for me at least).

Seems that I can no longer even get it to compile. I am using the sample code from http://linksprite.com/download/showdownload.php?lang=en&id=202.

I have made some changes:

Code:
#define MOSI            11
#define MISO            12
#define SCK             13

From

Code:
#define MOSI            B,3
#define MISO            B,4
#define SCK             B,5

But I now get errors:



If anyone could have a try at compiling, regardless of getting it to work with a mamba shield as I am pretty sure no one actually uses these from what I have seen on the internet.

You have to use the version arduino-0022, all other don't work
