Re: Microview & Bubble Display 7 segment = Not working

Hi Robert,

If Scott is able to compile, maybe you can paste the exact error from Arduino IDE please?

Also what is the version of Arduino IDE you used to compile the sketch?

Cheers
JP

Re: Microview Error Compiling

Thanks Scott. Hi Baldrick100 & bjbiver, I kind of suspect the instructions here https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/sparkfun-inventors-kit-for-microview/programming-the-microview was a bit unclear leading to the library not installed in the correct location. In the instructions, the library was sto...

First XOR draw the arrow display the arrow, second XOR draw the same arrow at the same location make it disappear. Then from the sensor work out the angle of the next draw. If you look at our source co...

Re: Plastic housing on Microview

Hi,

If you already have the MicroView, just remove the plastic housing.

If you have custom enclosure, will you consider this https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13003 ? The tutorial is here

Re: Cant upload any of the programs

Hi,

1. Have you selected the board as Arduino UNO or MicroView?

2. If you have selected the right board, could you try with the latest FTDI driver please?

Re: uView Programmer alters circuit's behavior??

Hi awardblvr, Sorry for the late reply. I gone through your schematic and did not see anything from the USB programmer that will help or affect the operation of your circuits. The only thing that I could think of are two suspects for your consideration: 1. When MicroView is connected to the USB prog...

Re: Programmer with Arduino mini pro

Thanks Scott for the clarification.

The FT231X in the MicroView Programmer is 3.3V output, should be able to work with 3.3V Mini Pro. Just make sure the 5V of the Programmer goes to the RAW input of the Mini Pro like Scott said.

Re: Programmer with Arduino mini pro

Hi tester919, You didn't mention what type of programmer you used for your Arduino Mini Pro. Normally any USB to Serial TTL converter will work properly as a programmer for the MicroView. In our Getting Started with MicroView , we have a diagram showing how to use a FTDI Basic as a programmer. http:...
