  1. Cool concept to adding boards to the Raspberry Pi. Atomo is a complete system for building electronic things with four parts: Control, IO, Power, and Connector. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/atomo-modular-electronics-system-arduino--2#/ https://youtu.be/0uOsLvB1of0
  2. Welcome to 43oh. lcd_send_string(enum2str(haltIn)); What is the "haltIn" type. Can you type type cast or initialize it to the enum. The below works for me. Try to use typedef, to avoid tping "enum IOChannel" everytime. typedef enum {V1 = 11, I1 = 101, V2 = 12, I2 = 102}IOchannel; char *enum2str(IOchannel enumVariable) { switch(enumVariable) { case V1: return "V1"; default: return "I1"; } } /** * Main program. */ int main(void) { IOchannel haltIn = V1; enum2str(haltIn); }
  3. More upgrades: PHP5.4 -> 5.6 Memcache support for forums. Added 12GB more to disc size.
  4. Moving to General Electronics.
  5. I haven't yet transitioned to the SBCs offering a MCU and a MPU, in one unit. It has been either the MPU or use an ARM MCU for me. The BBB has PRUs, but it needs getting used to and needs a fair bit of work. Maturity and stability is a big consideration in product based solutions.
  6. You should post your error.
  7. Agree. I'll look at it this weekend. Username lookups using "@" are turtle slow. If you are writing anything long, I'd suggest saving the content locally, like notepad... just in case, the post times out.
  8. The closest I've come to on SBCs are RasPis and BBB. They suffice most of my needs. With real time requirements on specific processes, the choice is towards any of the ARM Cortexs running bare metal or RTOS code.
  9. Pinning topic. Thanks for keeping the repo updated. @Fmilburn
  10. Welcome to 43oh. Please start a new topic. Posting in different threads is not going to help. Also list what you have tried and what you do not understand. See the rules on the Energia sub-forum.
  11. Officially released: TI SensorTag tool link - Technical TI SensorTag wiki link - CC3200 SensorTag Users Guide TI Store link - CC3200STK-WIFIMK
  12. Video, with Jason K. showing a balancing robot using the board:
