  • Hi all,

    I’m making an audio application in which I need to connect the Lilypad MP3 through Bluetooth with a smartphone. I’m using the Bluetooth Mate Silver connected to the FTDI port, but for some reason I’m no getting enough power out of the 3.3V pin of the FTDI. When measured with the multimeter I get around 0.5V. I check that the module is working by connecting it to an external power. I also realized that this pin of the FTDI is connected to the VIN pin. Is there any configuration that I need to change in the Lylipad? I’m using the 1000mAh LiPo battery. I was thinking on connecting the 3.3V out of the Lylipad to its own VIN, would this be an issue?

    Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

No public wish lists :(
