  • Well, I just got it working, also on Win7 64bit. You have to install the correct driver, and then put stuff in the “Arduino/hardware” directory. Just follow the instructions in the Getting Started Tutorial above.

    Do you have SparkFun Pro Micro 5V/16Mhz as an option in your boards menu, and is it selected?

  • Aha! Never mind, I solved it. Solution? After uploading the new sketch, you always have to unplug the USB cable, then plug it back in. Then it will run the Serial code in the Setup part of the sketch, that’s supposed to print when you open the Serial Monitor. Otherwise, it never will.

    And also, you do need the Leonardo “wait around until I open Serial Monitor” code I posted above, or it can be simplified further as:

    while (!Serial) ;

    Good luck to anyone else pulling their hair out over Serial Silence! I am now very happy with this purchase.

  • I just bought one, and can’t get Serial communication working. I have added this:

    while (!Serial) { ; // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for Leonardo only }

    on the theory that it’s like Leonardo, but it didn’t fix it. None of the example sketches for Serial work. How can I fix this?

  • I just bought one and can’t get Serial to work properly. I have put in the:

    while (!Serial) { ; // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for Leonardo only }

    …but it doesn’t fix it. None of the example sketches for Serial work. How can I fix this?

  • “Do keep in mind that the Teensy 3.0 is a 3.3V system, which makes it compatible with a lot of sensors that utilize 3.3V signalling but can run you into trouble if you’re used to 5V dev boards.”

    Wait, does that mean that it can only run off of 3.3 Volts? Is there a voltage regulator or no? If no, that means that I cannot run it off of a 12V battery with a separate 5V voltage regulator, like I can with a Teensy 2.0, right?

  • Whoops, sorry, I messed up. I meant that Fabio Ornellas' library looks great, not maxm’s. It’s here: https://github.com/fornellas/sketchbook/tree/416ae0f095d1d6ba232a5951ccbb620a85386ca8/libraries/Thermistor . I think Fabio has already figured out all these constants for us, saving me (and anyone else) all the work you suggest above.

    So I’m just trying to figure out how to call the library function or whatever. I’m trying “Thermistor thermistor(0)” and “thermistor.read()” and things like that (based on this tutorial: http://arduino.cc/en/Hacking/LibraryTutorial ), but I really have no idea what I’m doing.

    Fabio, you’re awesome! Why did you not give us any example code? >:^( . ;^)

  • I can’t get a reasonable temperature to come up. It thinks room temperature is ~107 C with the http://www.arduino.cc/playground/ComponentLib/Thermistor2 code. It’s clearly just a math problem, because maxm’s libary uses totally different multipliers.

    maxm’s library looks great, but I am not enough of a coder to figure out how to make it work! Is there any “example code” or something?

No public wish lists :(
