  • I’ve been trying to load Debian onto the Edison using this Console Block that I got as part of my starter pack using the instructions [] here. I am having no success - the the flashall.bat utility just will not connect to the Edison. Can I change the VID and PID in the flashall utility to make this work, or as Member #45485 comment seems to indicate, is this is a lost cause?

  • In case anyone else is wondering the ITG 3200 temperature format is not at all obvious. -13200 represents 35 Celsius, then every 280 counts is one degree Celsius. In other words…

    temperature = (TEMP_OUT_H << 8) | TEMP_OUT_L
    temperature = 35 + (temperature + 13200)/280
  • In case anyone else is laying out a circuit board, I measured the pin pitch at 0,05" The pins are 0.02" diameter. Contrary to the datasheet, there is no noticeable flat side of the package, you will have to orient them using the pins lengths.

  • Can anyone provide the exact pin pitch on these?

  • Purchased and verified that Digikey Part Number A100192-ND “Cable Assembly MINI CT 2POS” properly connects to the contact carrier.

  • I think that the cable assembly is available from digikey (part #A100192-ND). i haven’t purchased one yet, but the drawing looks spot on. Should solve your connectivity problems.

  • I have some serious bones to pick with this Dev board. The biggest snafu is that the HR (Heart Rate) pin from the RMCM01 (Polar receiver) is not broken out anywhere on the board! Duh, this is why I bought the board. Second, why is the PIC16F913 code protected? Anyone who buys this board to experiment with, might want to reflash it to stock form.
    The students in my Embedded class have to totally jury-rig the board to make it work on their project. totally uncalled for on a development board.
    That said, the RMCM01 works well with every heart rate strap that I own. The firmware on the PIC works well and is reasonably well documented.

  • The correct link for the third place entry is:
    The link for the potato clock has some extra text attached to it

  • The pin-out is just fine, use your DMM in diode mode to identify pin 1. The color intensity varies noticeably between the blue LEDs. Timing constraints with a typical MCU will limit you to about 512 colors. Wish the price was more modest.

No public wish lists :(
