Re: Connecting Multiples adxl345 accelerometers to arduino

I assume you can get one accel working on your own. Your main concern when adding more is, if the code is blocking, meaning it's using delay(). If it's using delays, then you need to incorporate nonblocking code. Look at the example "Blink without delay" in the IDE. I haven't looked at the example c...

Re: Arduino Not recognizing ITG-3200

I2C needs solid connections. If you are using jumpers, chances are it's not getting a good connection.

Re: 3 days just to get it in the mail?!?

I can tell you that when I order items, SF usually as them shipped within 48 hrs. You never know what is happening behind the scenes. Maybe an employee called in sick or maybe he/she quit... You just never know. But, It's awesome of them for offering to give a refund for shipping. I bet no one else ...

Re: Tutorials

Wow dude. I see your just posting audio related ideas. Sparkfun is not just for audio, and also they try not to go in depth in one particular area. I understand that it's a business thing...

Re: Heartbeat and temperature monitoring system

Can you post any specifics? Like is there a display involved? Please list all devices that are being used. You can PM me if you don't want to give any details.

Re: 16X2 LCD-10862 RoHS

I see where you posted on the Adafruit forums, but Googling your model number doesn't bring up anything. Do you have a datasheet?

Re: determination of maximum acceptable moisture content in

Well, you're going to have to experiment with it. Set up some projects with different size boards, maybe even different copper weight, then run them with high moisture until delamination occurs.
