Re: Alive but not responding

It looks like avrdude is expecting the programmer to be on COM1 but it's on COM8. Have you selected COM8 as the port in the Arduino IDE?

Re: Re-display SparkFun (or other) logo?

Unfortunately, the logo is provided as initialisation data for the screenmemory[] array that buffers the screen data in RAM. Once this logo data is overwritten by your own display data, it's lost. The logo data is still somewhere in program memory, but I can't think of a way to access it.

Your message is confusing. How is a SparkFun MicroView involved with what you're trying to do?

How is this related to the Sparkfun MicroView, which is what this forum category is meant to provide support for?

Re: Connecting Microview to Wyliodrin

That guide explains how to control an Arduino Uno connected to a Raspberry Pi. The Pi is then controlled by Wyliodrin. If this is what you want to do, then you just have to follow the guide but use your MicroView in place of the Arduino Uno. You will need to load the Arduino.ino file into your Micro...

According to all the information I've found, Wyliodrin only supports the Arduino Yun. Since the Microview is based on the Arduino Uno there probably isn't any direct support for it.

Re: How do you invert text on the display?

OK, I just tried it. Just using setColor(BLACK), before writing, should do what you want. Remember to use setColor(WHITE) to return to normal mode.

I haven't tried it, but I think using some combination of setColor() and setDrawMode() , before writing your text, should allow you to write inverted text, or any other object. You may find that the area that you want to write to has to be cleared or inverted before writing the text. You could do th...

Re: Microview - ML8511 interface voltage problem

Having 3.44V for the ML8511 supply shouldn't be any problem at all. The recommended operating voltage of the ML8511 is from 2.7V to 3.6V. If you hook up things according to the sketch, applying the same 3.44V to A1 for a reference, then the accuracy won't be affected. The 3.44V output of your supply...

I don't know of any direct comparisons between the MicroView and an Arduino Uno. The pinout for the MicroView is can be found here: http://learn.microview.io/Intro/general-overview-of-microview.html and a schematic is here: https://cdn.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Dev/Arduino/Other/MicroView.pdf A simila...

One more thing. You are missing pinMode() functions to set the pins to outputs. void setup() { uView.begin();// begin of MicroView uView.clear(ALL); // erase hardware memory inside the OLED controller uView.display(); // display the content in the buffer memory, by default it is the MicroView logo u...

I found the problem. It's not obvious. You are using pin 4 for myStep . Pin 4 is used to enable the 3.3V regulator that powers the display. When your interrupt routine set pin 4 LOW it powered off the display. Even setting pin 4 to HIGH would not make anything appear on the display because it is not...

I added uView.display(); to the end of loop() but it still didn't display anything. I experimented and found that it works if you remove //digitalWrite(myStep, paso ); from the interrupt routine. I don't know why this causes a problem. #include <TimerOne.h> #include <MicroView.h> #define myDir 3 // ...

I don't see any uView.display(); in your loop() function.
