Getting started with the microview

Post by Doomcuroe » Fri Jul 18, 2014 3:36 pm

Hey ok so I'm just trying to get this thing going. I installed the drivers, arduino software and also code breaker. In the arduino software I am simply trying out the blink program, it downloads ok- lights blinking to show it is but then when it's done there is no blinking and the screen in blank. What am I missing?

Thanks,
Dave

Hi Doomcuroe,

The default Arduino's blink will not run on MicroView because MicroView does not have an LED connected to D13. You can add a LED and 330 ohm resistor to D3 and change the Blink sketch's led pin to 3 or alternatively you can use the display to blink.

If you have codebender, please click the link below to run
https://codebender.cc/sketch:40072?board=MicroView

or cut and paste the code below to your Arduino IDE.

Code: Select all

#include <MicroView.h>
/*
	MicroView Blink
	Draw a circle for one second, then off for one second, repeatedly.
 
	This example code is in the public domain.
 */
 
// the setup routine runs once when you press reset:
void setup() {                
	uView.begin();
	uView.clear(PAGE);
}

// the loop routine runs over and over again forever:
void loop() {
	uView.circleFill(32,24,10,WHITE,NORM);
	uView.display();
	delay(1000);               // wait for a second

	uView.circleFill(32,24,10,BLACK,NORM);  
	uView.display();
	delay(1000);               // wait for a second
}
