Re: ghostboard

Hello, The board in the first link you sent is the board only and does not include the backing board. We can certainly supply this too though. I think we can also do the 4-digit display for you, it's something we use internally so I don't see why not. I would either phone or email our sales team and...

Re: Output Issues with individual Port addressing

Hello, Do you have anything connected to the pins. It seems strange I've not come across this recently. What seems to be happening is this. First you set bit 2 of port c and the portc register gets this value portc = portc | (1<<2) = 0x04 Then when you set bit 1 of port c the reading of the portc re...

Re: Shift Register 74HC595

Hi Jorgen, I beleive I have now fixed the problems that you and Martin have reported. The one missing is the missing G segment on hardware. Can you test the DP segment and see if the G and DP are reversed on your hardware. If they are then I might have to create some kind of a mapping function to al...

Re: PID control

Another thing I noticed is your I coeffient is greater than 1, ideally this should be less than 1.

The main deal breaker I beleive is the properties of the timer interrupt icon, currently set to no clock :D

Re: SSD1322 macro crashes FC7 test

Hello,

Is that a v8 program? it seems to be due to it's target device.

It's compiling for me using the latest version 8.2 and the latest component updates.

v7 program also working ok for me and compiling correctly. What version of v7 are you running?

Excellent thanks for that Martin,

I could wrap this up into a component if that would be useful. This way you could set the number of 7-seg digits and simulate.

Hi Tom, It might be worth trying Avrdudess to get the right settings. It's basically a GUI for AVRdude to allow you to try various settings.

Re: 4 digit 7 segment not working

I've exported the component for v7 for you as there wasn't too much to it. Hopefully it should work ok.

Simply copy to your "Flowcode V7\Components\" folder and restart Flowcode.
