Re: 7 Segment Display 6 digits

Hi, Creating a multiplexed system will create a whole lot of extra configuration. At the moment, the Arduino nano and uno are almost full, those are the once holding it back. Other Arduino's, ESP32 and Raspberry Pi Pico has more then enough memory to add new stuff. At some point we have to leave ce...

Re: 7 Segment Display 6 digits

Joe, Thanks for the reply. Was just wondering if anybody would like to setup a code for both Arduino side and messsage port for this device. As AM doesnot support 1638 like SimVIM currently does. (I know due to memory space) I can imagine many fellow simmers would like to have such a example/basic c...

Re: 7 Segment Display 6 digits

.....these units are superb for arduino with 8 inputs and 8 outputs and also 8 x 7 segs on 3 lines. There are 16 key modules for the 1638 but there CAN be issues with multiple simultaneous button presses that are not present on the 8 button units. - (due to lack of routing diodes) https://www.bangg...

Re: Interesting and novel electronics / hardware thread. - Components, parts, prebuilt , anything useful

One thing I had a hard time tracking down for my cockpit were full-size toggle switches that weren’t several bucks apiece. Not those tiny little guys that you find on Amazon. Eventually stumbled on Newark. Full size toggle switches in any variety you need, $0.85 each. Single or double pole, single ...

CODE SIZE

Hi All, I was wondering if there is any effect if the code is optimized with getting rid of all the returns, loose spaces and more. Will this make things faster? will it allow more things to be done. or is it no issue so coding should be clean. Just wondering, in the old days of little mem we used t...
