Re: Compiling with MPIDE on Mac OS SSD

Here is a podcast with Chuck Peddle talking about the next thing he is working on (SSD with dram and super caps). The d-ram is used while the machine is on and when power is lost, supercaps move whats in dram to flash. http://www.theamphour.com/241-an-interview-with-chuck-peddle-charismatic-chipmaki...

Re: Virtual Wire lib for CHIPKIT

+1 on people who still insist on using Hungarian notation should be shot.

I do use it from time to time, because I would rather not mix metaphors when maintaining someone elses code.

Re: LIBRARY FOR LCD 40X4

I got these devices to work with chipKIT using the Arduino library without modification:

I suspect there libraries will not work with your display without modification.

Re: Strange timing behavior migrating from Arduino Uno to Max32

What is the type of ulProgramModeExitTime? Probably should be a unsigned int (32 bits on a PIC32).

Re: Virtual Wire lib for CHIPKIT

Looks like PIC32 or __PIC32__ would be the ticket unless you need to target a specific family or chip.

Re: Virtual Wire lib for CHIPKIT

So I was looking at your code and noticed you had a line with a comment that says "comment this out if your not chipkit" When I ported the cryposuite lib for Arduino to chipKIT I added this: #if defined(__PIC32MX__) #define PROGMEM #define memcpy_P(dest,source,len) memcpy((dest),(source),(len)) #def...

Re: Virtual Wire lib for CHIPKIT

Seems like a great thing to include. Any suggestions on how to do this, in the core libraries?

Compiling with MPIDE on Mac OS SSD

I have a student that is using MPIDE with a SSD on a Mac and he was wondering if compiling on his computer would cause a lot of wear on the drive? I have heard that SSD wear leveling has gotten better over the years but I also know of drives being destroyed pretty quickly several years ago. If wear ...

Re: HELP WITH lcd 40x4

I got this library to work with a chipKIT Quick240 out of the box (no mods needed): http://arduino-info.wikispaces.com/LCD-Blue-I2C#v1

Its only a 4x20 display however.
