Excel Coder Generator for OLED

Hi, I wanted to create my own fonts and images for my Freetronics 128 x 128 OLED and came up with a way of doing this using Excel. When you place a 1 into each cell it generates a line of oled.setPixel code for the corresponding cell / pixel. I then copy the bundle of code into a sketch and its done...

Re: DMD Clock

Hi John,

Good Idea, I had forgotten about the analogue display. I can use the right hand side to display the date, temp and humidity. That's a worthwhile activity to go about hacking some more code together.

Thanks and Cheers

Re: DMD Clock

Hi Maverick, Had a lot of fun with the code you sent and have finally made my Clock with Temperature and Humidity Display. Unfortunately not enough real estate for a second count though. Makes we ant to buy another DMD Display and see what I can do with displaying all this beaut information now. Rea...

Re: DMD Clock

Hi Maverick, Thanks very much for sending the library files. I was using Arduino 1.0 Windows. I downloaded Arduino 022, copied the DHT, DMD and Timerone libraries across and bingo she's a working. Well done on your code. That is exactly what I was hoping to create so I am going to learn how you did ...

Re: DMD Clock

Hi Maverick, I have sent you the code I used for the LM355 via a private message but it is stuck in an outbox so I am not sure if you got it. I tried your code but I get compiler errors. I am assuming because I am using old libraries for the DHT and the DMD. Can you point me to which library files y...

Re: DMD + DHT + Eleven

Hi,

Great effort on getting this to work. Unfortunately I could not get the code to compile. I suspect I am using an old library for either the DHT or the DMD.

Could upload the library files you are using. It would be most appreciated.

Many Thanks

Re: DMD Clock

Hi Jon, Thanks for the advice. I managed to get the DHT working using Serial Print onto the LCD display some weeks back. Here is a link to what I posted. http://forum.freetronics.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=178&start=10 My challenge has been to find a way to decode the digital readings from the DHT in ...

DMD Temperature Display

Hi, Thought I would have a bit of fun attempting to combine some images with a temperature display. Check out the youtube video below. (Its a bit slow to start but wait 15 seconds and it gets into it.) http://youtu.be/hwqCdZNZejk I used a LM355 temp sensor connected to analogue port 0 and some clunk...

Re: DMD Clock

Hi John, Thanks for the tip. I couldn't for the life of me work out how to decode the readings from the DHT on Digital Pin 2 but I have had great success in using a LM355 on an analogue port and displaying the temperature on the DMD. Just got to find a smarter way to create the DMD display code. Jus...
