Re: Does anyone use Diptrace pcb designer

I too use Diptrace and I like it very much! Sure, it's not as refined as for example Adobe Photoshop and the like. But it's very logical, intuitive, and easy to work with. Just do yourself a favor and learn to use all four parts of their application suite. Pattern Editor, Component Editor, Schematic...

Re: UTFT component? perfect for many graphic displays

Hi Ben, So it's been over a year since I sent you the displays. No reply from you since December. I'll post this request that I sent you in a private message here as well: would it be possible to get an update to the SSD1306 buffered component so that there is a font size that is 4x tall but only do...

Re: how to order 10 numbers by size?

Thanks, I have not had time to check back on this. I wanted a simple way of identifying outliers in an array of say 10 byte variables to get a more accurate way of determining an average value.

Re: DS3231 - RTC Time Keeper

Ok. I just never used the DS1307 because as you say, the DS3231 is far superior.

Re: DS3231 - RTC Time Keeper

Doesn't the Tiny RTC I2C module use the DS1307 chip and not the DS3231? Does the DS1307 have exactly the same commands and functions?

how to order 10 numbers by size?

Let's say I want to read 10 sample values from a sensor and sort them by size and store them in that order from low to high in variable01, variable02, variable03... variable10.
How would you suggest I do this? I want to make sure I do it efficiently and don't do a lot of unnecessary calculations.

Re: Problem with Average analogue component macro?

I've had similar problems with the dsPICs and the average ADC macros. Both the Get Average and Raw Average functions made the program freeze up. Worked fine on 8 bit PICs but not 16 bit. The Get Byte or Get Int worked fine if I remember correctly. Also, you can try to increase the delay from 2us to ...

Re: GLCD (SSD1306) 128x64 I2C with 3 pins

Can't you just pull the RST pin low or high so it won't reset? Surely it would work? Or you could use a pin on your controller of choice if you want to be able to do a hardware reset through your software.

Re: Using FFT_test.fcfx

Hi Larry, The: Data = Data - 512, Data = Data * 32 What this does is to take the 10-bit Data, which always is a positive number out of the ADC, and effectively moves the mid point to zero instead of 512. A 10-bit ADC swing from 0 to 1023. But the FFT needs to have values centered around a 0 midpoint...

Re: SSD1305 Buffered not working right

After looking at the source code I know I won't understand what is what :) But I took a longer look at the datasheet and I think that you have to re-map the GDDRAM because the display will always start on PAGE2 which is either COM16-COM23 or if the standard remap it would be COM47-COM40, but I think...

Re: Need source of OLED 128x64 with SH1306 SPI

I think you mean SSD1306 and not SH1306?

You can buy them here:
1.3" OLED

Then you can make your own PCB and choose 4-wire SPI or I2C.

How to read specific digit of an INT variable?

How would one best go about this problem?

Let's say INT_var = 12345

Now how do I take that and turn it into this:
These are all byte variables.

Digit0 = 5
Digit1 = 4
Digit2 = 3
Digit3 = 2
Digit4 = 1

Do you have flyback protection diodes across the relay coils? Have you considered using optocouplers and thus isolating the PIC side from the relay side? You should also have a capacitor connected to the MCLR pin if you are using the MCLR that is (do not have the capacitor connected to MCLR when you...
