Re: Addition if Arduino micro

Hi,


Agreed, the Raspberry Pico seems to be best board in town.
It also has better PWM control.

Re: Tutorials on electronics

Hi, The message port itself works fine (it uses exactly the same system as the pin mode, only with different messages). But programming for an embedded platform requires more care. You have to deal with more things then on a desktop system. That is probably the issue. I'm not saying we are dropping ...

Re: Tutorials on electronics

Hi, Also, I don't wanne go into the rabbit hole that is extension boards. A Raspberry Pico is probably almost as expensive as an extension board and is way more flexible. Not to speak of the configuration complexity introduced when adding something like that. For more tailor made hardware, message p...

Re: Tutorials on electronics

Hi, Having two versions would only be confusing I feel like. For now, the most common hardware is already supported by the Arduino. In time, I think I have to leave the Arduino Uno and Nano behind, in a way that they won't support newer hardware. For now, the TM1637 is the most requested (and will b...

Re: AM data flow between remote uP and AM - ie - Arduino and AM ?

Hi,

For the encoder, the Arduino is sending a message with +1 or -1 for the direction. (can also be higher then 1 if you turn really really fast ;).
For the stepper motor, AM only sending the required position. The generation of the step signals are all done by the Arduino.

Re: messagePort->SendMessage not functioning

Hi,


The ‘incoming_message_callback’ should be defined before using it in the ‘hw_message_port_add’.
Note that code is executed top to bottom.

Re: AM not working - instruments vanishing

Hi,

Let me know when you have time, and indeed when you can reproduce it.
I can install eclipse on your system, and debug what the issue is.

Re: AM not working - instruments vanishing

Hi,


Those errors are common when you delete an instrument within Air Manager but the instrument directory is still in use by another program.
It won't be able to remove the directory, leaving an empty directory.


Removing it completely manually fixes the issue,
