  • It can. With the Ethercard library and Arduino a Google search for "hello world" is as easy as

    ether.browseUrl("/search?q=", "hello+world", "");

  • I can confirm that this board works flawlessly on Arduino Uno with the Ethercard library. Connect it like this:

    Board:      Arduino:
    PIN 7       PIN 8
    PIN 2       PIN 11
    PIN 3       PIN 12
    PIN 1       PIN 13
    PIN 10      3.3V
    PIN 9       GND
  • I made an Arduino library that can generate QR codes and print them to this printer:

  • I did this on the Raspberry Pi about five months ago. When you use a raspberry pi, you don't need the arduino the control the servos. You can control them directly with the Pi.

  • Some things need to be mentioned about this thing. The datasheet is dead wrong about current draw. It says 65mA. In reality, I am reading about 160mA nominal, and when you put a coin in it spikes to more than 250mA. Also, the "coin inhibitor" feature is not something you can control by normal means. It has an internal sensor at the exit of the device, if the coin fails to leave the exit and stays inside the device, it will inhibit. It will also inhibit when the device has no power. Other than that, the only way to inhibit manually is to cut the wires to the solenoid on the side and bypass it through a transistor you control. Or kill power to it... But when you return power to it again, it beeps loudly.

  • Could you use this to permanently power a low power device? What I mean is, while it's in discharge mode is the battery still charging? I want to leave a microcontroller unattended in a distant location, always powered on and collecting data for a few years. Will this work?

  • Could you use this to connect a 3v analog device to a 5v IC? Or is this intended to just transmit digital signals?

No public wish lists :(
