Re: Using D0/D1 for RX/TX?

Thank you johnb,

I appreciate your quick reply and suspected as much but I was also hoping the two might play nice together if the Bluetooth module wasn't paired so that I didn't have to pull the jumpers to it when it was on the test bench.

And now for the moment of truth...

Kind regards,
Jason

Using D0/D1 for RX/TX?

Guys, Has anyone successfully used the D0/D1 pins for RX/TX on this shield? I note the default pins are D2/D3 but I also note the quick start guide states: There's one other thing to keep in mind. Pins D2 and D3 do not have hardware serial port features like pins D0 & D1. D0 & D1 are the special pin...

Re: EtherTen Pin Reference

Thanks johnb, I appreciate your help and apologise for the long delay in reply...life just keeps interrupting my projects. An ADC IC is now high on my list of things to add to the project. As an aside I have just discovered the key matrix of PS2 keyboards. These essentially free digital inputs are a...

Re: EtherTen Pin Reference

Well done and thank you for sharing :) Don't forget A6 and A7 are broken out below the MCU. It feels like Christmas all over again...I had no idea these two little gems existed. They have just made the following question less important but I still need to ask just in case. Are A4 and A5 still avail...

Re: MicroSD card slot support MicroSDHC?

Thanks johnb,

I appreciate your help and the Freetronics fast replacement service.

The new board works a treat and has been saving data around the clock as I calibrate my thermistors. I am now looking towards the Ethernet and integrated POE connection...this is an amazing little board.

Cheers.

Re: MicroSD card slot support MicroSDHC?

Thanks again johnb, Yes to both, but my challenge still remains. I have even tried a new card (non-hc) as a sanity check but it returns the same error (see attached image in case I have missed something obvious on the board). This new card doesn't even register when using the SD CardInfo sketch. Che...

Re: MicroSD card slot support MicroSDHC?

and change SS to 4. Thanks johnb, I appreciate your reply. I had previously found and modified that line of code to no positive effect. Are there any clues in the error codes that might help me understand the problem? Alternatively, how else might I best troubleshoot this problem. Some background: ...

Re: MicroSD card slot support MicroSDHC?

The Arduino library determines the card type you can use. For microSDHC cards use https://code.google.com/p/sdfatlib/ When you use the library be sure to use sd.begin(4); as the EtherTen's microSD card socket's chip select line is digital 4. There's more on this in the library's readme file. Awesom...
