Re: WiFi Communication with ESP8266

Also, is there a function to read signal strength from the module? If so that would be nice to have a macro for :)

Re: WiFi Communication with ESP8266

I thought I would just add that: yes it is connected to my home wifi and is able to access the internet. I just don't know how to get it to send data to my mySQL server.

Re: WiFi Communication with ESP8266

Ok I got it up and running now :) But just a quick question/request. How can I make it send a request like this: http://www.domain.com/in.php?temperature01=10 Do I first have to connect to http://www.domain.com on port 80? any example would be great, maybe an example of using POST instead of GET as ...

Re: WiFi Communication with ESP8266

I see. I'll check with my scope tomorrow. I have the same ones from electro dragon so I guess I will have to use 115200.

This is all rather new to me, the baud calculations. Haven't had to mess with it before so I have no idea if the K80 devices have different calculation requirements :)

Re: WiFi Communication with ESP8266

I tried the new UART file with my PIC18F26K80 and a 20Mhz crystal. It didn't work. I changed the baud rate to 38400 which with the new calculation would give a result of 32.05208
But maybe It has to be 115200 baud rate?

I'll try again tomorrow when I get my new 18.432Mhz crystals

Re: 8" TFT display, RA8875 chip

Sure I can do that.

I think it would be a nice display for simple graphics and text without having to use 16 bit parallel interface and use up a bunch of IO pins.
I'll have it sent directly to you once I order it.

Thanks.

Re: WiFi Communication with ESP8266

Ok, but will there be similar issues with other serial comms at the 115200 baud rate? or is this ESP8266 chip less tolerant against deviations from set baud rate?

Re: WiFi Communication with ESP8266

Thanks Ben. How come the baud rate is this "finicky" and requires this "special" crystal frequency?

Re: WiFi Communication with ESP8266

Ben, you said you had the RST pin connected to VCC, so how should we configure the component? Set it as hardware or software reset? Shouldn't the reset pin option under properties be grayed out if we choose software reset? I have ordered a couple of 18.432 Mhz crystals now so I hope to get it up and...

I have seen the 4D displays but the price is kind of keeping me from going down that road.

Re: WiFi Communication with ESP8266

I to get AP Fail. Tested with Reset connected to VCC and to the MCU but same result.

However I do see an AP named ESP_992153 using the app Wifi Analyzer on my phone. It is broadcasting on channel 1.

I will try to get my hands on a 18.432MHz crystal and try again.

8" TFT display, RA8875 chip

Looking at the datasheet for the RA8875 it looks to be plenty of nice features, like commands for drawing different graphics/shapes etc. Should make it easier to create a powerful display component and it should make it quite useful for 8 bit MCUs. http://www.buydisplay.com/default/color-8-inch-lcd-...

Re: ENC28J60 Ethernet LAN

That's strange odd. I didn't know this and have been running 48Mhz and 3.3V for about a year on all my projects that I usually test out on a few PIC18F4550 standard DIP40 chips :) I really should try this on some other hardware because I rarely use 5V anymore as most other ICs tend to use 3.3V or lo...

Re: ENC28J60 Ethernet LAN

I only used 3.3V for all pins. The pic is using the same power supply as well. I didn't even get the LEDs to light up

Re: ENC28J60 Ethernet LAN

I have tried the Ping program on my PIC18F4550 but no go. I can't get the two LEDs to show link/activity and I've connected it as per the instructions, tried switching the MISO/MOSI around, nothing. Tried swapping SCK to CLK and all combinations but still nothing. Am I doing anything wrong in the se...

Re: ENC28J60 Ethernet LAN

I have tried both hardware channel 1 SPI and software, tried switching MISO/MOSI on both, I have tried CS on other pins than A5 but I thought I would try A5 as well. No difference. No worries, I can wait for the component. I'm sure it will be more clear to me how it all works then as it is quite con...

That's exactly how I connected it as I am familiar with the MOSI MISO terminology. But I'll have another go when I get home.

Re: ENC28J60 Ethernet LAN

Ok, so SCK/SCL (Can't remember what was printed on the module) is not to be used and I should use CLK instead. got it. Will try when I get home. I don't have any 16 Bit MCU that I can try it on so I have to stick with the PIC18F4550

Re: ENC28J60 Ethernet LAN

It will probably work. I only connected:
Vdd
GND
SI
SO
SCK (I also tried to swith to CLK)
CS

The other pins, will not be used? What about the WOL pin for example?

Thanks.
