Topic: NewSoftSerial on the Mega (Read 740 times) previous topic - next topic

I understand that the Mega has 3 hardware serial ports and, as such, has less need for software serial.  Nevertheless, a number of people have asked whether NewSoftSerial could be modified to support the Mega.  I would really like to add this support, but not quite enough to go out and buy my own Mega. :)  Is there anyone out there who wants NewSoftSerial support enough to send me one?  PM me.

THANKS MAN

hi everyone, im adam from france im 20
im in an internship now ,

im working on an interactive panel of monochrom leds, i have done the scheme on the electronic board using a pic18F4520 via TLC 5940 for driving 16 leds plus 2 IR leds "one transmits the signal while the second receives it" WITH MPLAB C18 in order to blink leds just by moving one's hand upon the panel, i have beeen inspired by the schemes with "arduino" micros  already done on the web by other people , and i tried to do the same with the pic , i think  im ready for the next level by programming the 16 leds ,I HAVE TO DO IT WITH c language,  but as im not that good with C , i hope you could give me some help through this study,


I APPRECIATE ANY HELP OF THE PROGRAM I REALLY NEED IT THANKS IN ADVANCE

i have done the same with my pic  http://students.washington.edu/acleone/codes/tlc5940arduino/img/breadboard-arduino-tlc5940_close.png

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3ulBf7NIl8  its the concept but that is analogic , im using microcontroler so as to be programmed in a digital way

THANKS FOR THE HELP GUYS

fightstar--

I suggest that for better response you create a new topic, since your question has nothing apparently to do with NewSoftSerial or Arduino Mega.  That would give you much better visibility.  

Or at least pick a more popular thread to crash.  You can hear the crickets chirping in this one.  :)

hi guys ,

i gave up with PIC18F4520 and mplab, i have bought an arduino atmega 168 board , and i have done the circuit connecting it with a tlc 5049and 16 leds , i have found some libraries in arduino software it's very helpful than the mplab , now my circuit works and my leds blink ,but i have to connect the whole thing with 2 photo IR diodes, the first emmits and the second receives so as to get an interactive panel with leds blinking  just by moving my hand upon the circuit , so my problem remains in how can i connect these IR photodiodes on the test board , ihave followed some instruction on some websites on how to connect them but , im not getting any results , please , my internship period of time is running out unfortunately , i have to get it done this week . thanks for any suggestions
i ve been based on many ancient projects similar to mine coz im using exactly the same components but unfortunatly it doesnt contain IRleds for interactivity , you can understand more , by seeing these links thanks http://code.google.com/p/tlc5940arduino/  "photodiodes"
http://mechatronics.mech.northwestern.edu/design_ref/sensors/reflectors.html
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3ulBf7NIl8  you will understand more with this vid , but this one is an analogic panel (without) microcontroller , me i have to do it with microcontroller that's why ive chosen arduino instead of pic , btw i have a confusion abt using phototransistor or photodiode , they play the same role but i dont knw whiwh one i can use to be with the diode that receives plus i dont knw how to get them on the board , ive tried different schemes but it didnt work    thanks
