  • Product BOB-09168 | about 2 years ago

    Is it possible to use the with the Arduino TVout Library? I have a project I am working on at work and was going to use the Nootropic Design Video Experimenter (http://nootropicdesign.com/ve/) but we are having issues getting them listed as a vendor.

  • Product WRL-10665 | about 3 years ago

    Any chance of offering a kit offering 2 Wixels and a shield? I have seen this combo offered a couple other places but would rather buy from you guys.

  • Product PGM-08705 | about 3 years ago

    Thanks for the LPT info. I don’t think we have one computer left in our office that has one built in.

  • Product LCD-09351 | about 3 years ago

    That is basically what I am trying to do. For me I’m scaling an analog signal to a digital range and displaying that on the screen. I came up with my own code to display these numbers using full character blocks but I am currently looking at SummoningDark’s code (see link above) but I need to convert my own sprites. If I figure it out I’ll let you know.

  • Product CAB-09556 | about 3 years ago

    So for future cables fabricated can we get them to be the same as the firmware? Almost second guessed my counting and schematic reading ability with the firmware readout.

  • Product LCD-09351 | about 3 years ago

    Thanks, I received my BusPirate and cable today. I will take a look at the tutorial you suggested. Looking to use your firmware - need to setup 10 bigger sprites (0-9). Currently I coded a work around using 5 lines, 3 positions, and an invalid character that displays a filled block to make bigger numbers. It is a bunch of code that I could do without.

  • Product LCD-09351 | about 3 years ago

    I downloaded it but I’m not exactly sure how to update this firmware. Just guessing but I bet I don’t have the programmer required for this device.

  • Product LCD-09351 | about 3 years ago

    I ordered one of these for a project at work. I’m using the arduino platform and have done a few simple work-around projects with them here at work.
    When writing text to this, how hard is it to change the sizing? I’m wanting a big 4 digit number display with some smaller text below it. Will I have to create the numbers individually with draw functions? Or is there code to make the font larger?

No public wish lists :(
