  1. Ok - so far I've got the 2553 transmitting the pressed keys on a regular basis. I tried getting the Energia with the USB example, but I've got a lot of research to do to get this one going. I might be really lazy and use a 2553 on both ends and just connect to the 5529 with GPIO. I may try to fight this for another day or two to see if I can make any progress. I've also looked at another library by @@spirilis - https://github.com/spirilis/msprf24 - the SPI code looks like it's actually set up for the 5529 surprisingly. It's handling some communication correctly, but I'm not quite the
  2. So this project is in the works - but I haven't been posting much lately and I wanted to start up a thread on progress. Here's the basic idea. I have had a BeagleBone Black for quite a while. I've mostly been using it to run my 3D printer. However, I updated to Debian which seems much more stable than Angstrom. I've also hooked it up to my TV and downloaded an NES emulator. It's pretty cool, but it would be much nicer to have a real working NES controller. I just happen to have purchased some knock-off NES controllers from eBay a while back. I also have several NRF24L01+ radios on h
  3. It is actually done by blowing fuses on each chip. It is done during the testing phase - I assume there are test points available that aren't bonded to.
  4. R = Large Tape & Reel (3000 pcs), T = Small Tape & Reel (250 pcs)
  5. Hm - sound location or ecolocation? Those look like microphones.
  6. @@simpleavr - do you have the pcb dimensions? I can try and design a 3d printed bumper or case as well. Rubber feet like on the LP would work for a really simple solution.
  7. @@Fred - that link was broken - but I'm assuming you mean this: https://twitter.com/stevetex/status/481162124689813504
  8. I'd expect it to run some sort of Windows OS out of the box obviously - but it can run Linux and apparently Mac OS. Worst case - you could always fall back to Linux Not sure how it sizes up next to a BBB or RPi on that front though. @@RobG - I'd bet you're right on the usage of the boards if they're shipping them out without any human verification. Looks like it can be expanded to support WiFi - although only via PCI Express cards. I'm wondering if any of the cards I've got sitting around in old laptops might work...
  9. I'm wondering if there's another level of review - mine came back so quickly that it has to have been automated. I'll post if I ever get a shipping confirmation

  11. So I'm hoping to do another badge for next year - and I'd like to open it up to the 43oh community for suggestions. I'd love to hear what ideas everyone else might come up with!

  12. Looks like Microsoft is getting started on IoT - so for the .NET programmers - this might be an interesting thing. I signed up - apparently they're sending out free dev boards - https://www.windowsondevices.com/ Could be a cool sensor hub for instance.
  13. Ouch - $139 for 5 pcbs is awfully steep for hobby usage.
  14. I'm having a similar problem. I have to load a couple of sketches before things work. The string examples usually get things working. Do you have any other programs installed like CCS? I'm wondering if it's a driver issue or something. I have never had the problem before - just recently. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk

    @@igor - right now the badge only supports messages from a computer screen to the badge (available on 43oh.com/badge). That's an interesting idea though - it wouldn't be very complicated to do - the top and bottom LEDs line up fairly decently with the light sensors if the badges were held correctly.
  16. I believe so. I did try to use hardware SPI with Python but didn't really get anywhere, but that was early-on. I believe the python libraries should be further developed at this point. I don't know anything about getting it started though. Adafruit appears to have a library for the BBB that might be a good starting point.
  17. I'm absolutely in Maybe even for 2 or 3 - my daughter would love one.

    Saw this one. Pretty cool but it could use some stability work - it's awfully shaky Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk
  19. Thanks @@oPossum - I've heard horror stories about Sparkfun's libraries Never used anything more complicated than a battery holder out of theirs thankfully. I'm probably going to do another run for someone fairly soon - so I'll modify the board. That's what I get for being lazy on a part
  20. Do you have pull-up resistors on the i2c lines? I was trying an i2c library for Energia and forgot pull-up resistors to a similar result. Adding the resistors fixed everything.
  21. @@oPossum - I'll try that next time. I used a standard footprint from Adafruit (I think) - either that or Sparkfun and always just put a bit of solder on the ground pad to fix it - but taking the solder mask off the whole area seems like a simple fix
  22. By the way - there is a video on 43oh.com/badge explaining them parts and assembly. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk
  23. I designed them badge - should be a simple fix - can you send pictures of them top and bottom of them badge? Also - take them battery out for now if you haven't already.
