Re: Using ChipKit programmer on DIY board

Salut George,

I use PicKit3 to flash the CPU. Every time I connect the programmer it downloads the latest bootloader and firmware for the PicKit3. This also happens when I change the CPU type (e.g. from 44 pins to 28).

Ciao, Mathias

Re: WS2812B library/code for DP32 or similar

Salut,

nP is just a 2-dimensional array that has the pin number stored. If your LED strip is connected to pin 5, just use this instead of the nP[RIGHT][pin]

Re: WS2812B library/code for DP32 or similar

Salut, I have this modified ChipKitPixel library that works nicely with my boards based on the DP32. You will find in the code a compiler switch for the processor as the NOP calls depend on the frequency your board runs on. You can omit the call to HelvePic32.h as it defines nothing but a few pin na...

Re: New signed USB Serial drivers -

Salut,

I had no issues any more after using the drivers form this site: http://www.14core.com/drivers/

Re: I2C

Salut, I looked at the DTWI native code and what wire does. As Matt stated, wire is simply a wrapper around the DTWI library and after some tests it appears to me that whatever I tried I ended up writing the same wrapper in my local code. So I finally decided to modify the wire library and rename al...

for some reason, this last screenshot could not be loaded into the original message. It shows the Dashbord resulting from the commands from the board.
Pressing the buttons changes the blink frequency of the on-board LED

Microcontroller Dashboard

Salut, some time ago I thought it would be a good idea to have a simple method on my PC to serve simple, reoccurring tasks such as LEDs, Buttons, Sliders etc. It saves me time as I do not have to hook up a breadboard with buttons and LED or poti with all the logic and pull-ups etc. if I want to test...

chipKit Lenny

Salut, I recently saw the chipKit Lenny and I have a few questions: what is the advantage of the Lenny over the uC32? is the Lenny 5V tolerant? (looking at the board I guess no) what is the ETA? I am keen to get one to play with. I plan to test with different graphics boards I have from the Arduino ...
