 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Did anybody play with Ardulog yet?
It's an improvement of Openlog, with holes for screws and some analog inputs available to turn the device into a standalone logger (with proper firmware yet to be written...).
I lost my FTDI interface, so how do I reprogram it? I read somewhere that it should be possible to program it by taking away the chip from an Arduino UNO and using the board as an interface to the device, is that true? Even if my board had no FTDI chip? (not checked yet)
Which are the connections?

Can I only upload HEX files to Ardulog, or also use standard Arduino IDE?

Wait a moment... I DID IT!!!  smiley-cool

I was using an arduino-compatible board named "Luigino".
But now I know it is NOT fully compatible: after borrowing a REAL Arduino UNO, reprogramming both an OpenLog and an Ardulog was a matter of seconds!

Configurations used to reflash firmware of Ardulog and Openlog using an Arduino Uno board without chip rather than FTDI adapter:

ArduLog  Arduino
RX  RX
TX  TX
Vcc 5V
GND GND
RST RST
A1 (nothing)

IDE board: Arduino Uno


OPENLOG

OpenLog  Arduino
RX  RX
TX  TX
Vcc 3,3V
GND GND
GRN RST
BLK GND

IDE board: Arduino Uno, 2009 or ProMini16Mhz (depending ong Openlog version / purchase date)

Thanks for posting this!  I haven't needed to do it yet, but it's valuable to know it can be done.
