  • Howdy all! I am a little confused about setting up this board for Arduino compatibility.

    Since the new Arduino IDE supports the Zero already, why would I need to install another arm tool chain, wouldn’t the native Arduino compiler be sufficient? Also the Shumatech Basso avrdude “replacement” is not happy loading on Windows 10. I am in test mode so driver signing should not be issue, and I’m getting a silent installation failure. Is there an alternative?

    Which libraries should I expect to work if and when I get you installation instructions noodled out?


  • (Not that I’m complaining this is a great board!)

  • Wondering if the Simon Arduino Code is hosted on the links above somewhere? Seems like its mostly Android stuff?

    Cool App!

  • Driver download broke this AM I think…

  • Is arm code missing header file for device, and makefile?

  • As long as you have an available ‘tight’ USB connection this little circuit worked well today on Ubuntu 10.10, Windows 7 32 and Ubuntu 10.10 running as a VM on VMplayer 3.14 under Windows 7. In 2 of the 3 cases it was via an external USB hub, the third was native to the motherboard. Need a little more time to see if the readings make sense, but it worked well loading a spreadsheet, and a simple text file, tab delimited.
    No external driver required.

  • I wish there was a header on this to connect a usb to rs232 connector. FTDI whatever. I would like to have this communciate with my PC…

  • Link to schematic appears to be broken…

  • I’m guessing the Simon now has the Arduino bootloader from the factory like the ADXL345 Eval board??? Or perhaps there’s something special in the selection of the Lilypad mode? Just curious.

No public wish lists :(
