Re: Any tutorials or documentation?

Hi Guys, I spent a lot of time messing around with USB code and libraries to get something working that was solid and reliable. It collects data from medical devices via USB onto the the USBDroid which is then later uploaded onto an Android device via USB. This was done using the Arduino USB Host li...

Re: LeoStick install and first time use - Windows

Thanks Angus,

All working now. Basically pressing reset on the board does the trick. It actually appears in the driver manager as Leonardo due to all my stuffing around. I'll leave it for now as I have a new notebook which I'll load up when I get time.

Cheers,

Mark

Re: LeoStick install and first time use - Windows

Hello All, After spending the last few hours trying to get the LeoStick installed I'm stuck with driver issues. The thing is that I went through the install process detailed here: http://www.freetronics.com/pages/leostick-getting-started-guide#.Uy_EPvmSz84 Which went fine. I even uploaded a sketch. ...

Re: Newbie asks Do I really need the USBDroid?

Sounds like a plan Nick. The USB Host on Arduino was a major pain and took a long time to get working properly. The basic problem is that the USB devices I talk to are proprietary and no detail is available. The Bluetooth connection between the Arduino and Android was trivial in comparison. Run a se...

Re: Newbie asks Do I really need the USBDroid?

It depends, I use the USBDroid to read a USB device, so the USBDroid is acting as a USB host. I also have a bluetooth module which sends data to Android devices. Bluetooth is way easier than USB Host/OTG on the Android end. Basically you Need Android 3.1 or above to support this and not all devices ...

Re: Enclosure

Cover with masking tape or a sticky label then mark it all out. Center punch and drill a hole in each corner, cut between the holes with a hacksaw blade or dremel with cut off wheel. All between but as close as possible to the lines. When finished file it out to the lines and square the corners. I h...

Re: Enclosure

This is one of the enclosures I was using, basically it needed to be self contained as well as rugged and waterproof. The yellow box is a Pelican 1040 and the internal black box is from Jaycar, http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=hb6082 turned upside down. You will need to cut and drill hole...

128x128 Pixel OLED Display Module

Hi Guys, Didn't quite know where to post this but... I've just noticed quite a few new things in the latest Jaycar Catalogue from Freetronics. One of these is a 128x128 Pixel OLED Display. The other is a RGB LED Cube which I'm interested in. There are more though! Sadly they don't have these in stor...

Re: Turn USB Host Power Out On and Off

OK thanks Luke that makes some sense although I have very little experience with electronics, I'm actually a code cutter.
