That would have helped my specific project, with its 20 pin IC. Maybe not the total pe...

Re: Using the 24AA025E48 I2C "mac address" chip with EtherBo

There's a few options for hard-coding the MAC address. 1) If you're not in a busting hurry we've got a new Ethernet-enabled board coming (hopefully) next month that has the 24AA025E48 installed :) 2) One of our resellers has a product that solves the problem but with an EEPROM - the details and desi...

Re: Feature request

Well done on your project Chris. As you can imagine, it's difficult to please everyone with a design. However there's merit in your suggestion so we'll think more about it.

Re: DMD try separate scrolling run

Too much code to do that! :) Use the function in the guide I linked for you. For example, see how it's done in the following sketch: #include "SPI.h" #include "DMD.h" #include "TimerOne.h" #include "Arial_black_16.h" /* you can remove the fonts if unused */ #define DISPLAYS_ACROSS 1 #define DISPLAYS...

Re: Problems with Ethermega and SD Card

Apart from a trial with external power supply all use has been with usb power and appropriate jumper setting. The led I'm talking about is the D13 led beside the blue pwr led.
