  • Eagle files are open, you can even change it with notepad. what difference it would make whether the software open-source or not?

    I think the reason is Eagle is more common, it is being around for 28 years. Also Eagle design files are available from major manufacturers, ie: Atmel, TI. I download their experiment board designs to check schematics and use the parts in my own design. So I dont have to create my own library. I never see a design package for KiCAD.

  • Is it waterproof, can I keep it as submerged all the time?

  • It s to keep ADC pins down when there is no input from piezo

  • while we are in related topic; what should I use for distance around 50 meter for a car application?

  • I got my shield today and tried immediately.

    I tested the board 1st:

    SparkFun CC3000 - Board Test

    CC3000 initialization complete Firmware version: 1.24 MAC address: 70:FF:76:01:30:1E Finished board test

    Scanned the networks:

    SparkFun CC3000 - Scan Test

    CC3000 initialization complete Scanning APs. Waiting for scan to complete. Access Points found:

    SSID: dnhm MAC address: 20:AA:4B:08:AA:CC RSSI: 58 Security: WPA2

    SSID: dnhm-guest MAC address: 20:AA:4B:08:AA:CE RSSI: 58 Security: Unsecured

    Finished scan test

    Set the SSID and the password and tried to connect:

    SparkFun CC3000 - Connection Test

    CC3000 initialization complete Connecting to: dnhm Error: Could not connect to AP Error: Could not obtain connection details Error: Could not disconnect from network Finished connection test


    SparkFun CC3000 - Connection Test

    CC3000 initialization complete Connecting to: dnhm-guest Error: Could not connect to AP Error: Could not obtain connection details Error: Could not disconnect from network Finished connection test

    It did not connect none of the connections, I reserved an IP address on the router for the mac address, but nothing changed. I turned on logs on the router (Linksys e2500) and no log record. I use wpa2 so I kept the security setting as it is. I also have a 5ghz ssid and it does not show up. So I did not try test that one.

    I also tried the smart config example, but it says:

    SparkFun CC3000 - SmartConfig

    CC3000 initialization complete Starting SmartConfig Send connection details from app now! Waiting to connect... Error: Could not connect with SmartConfig Error: Could not obtain connection details Looking up IP address of: www.sparkfun.com Error: Could not lookup host by name Pinging 0.0.0.0 3 times... Error: no ping response Error: Could not disconnect from network Finished SmartConfig test

    obviously the board works (It can find the networks), what should I do as next step to troubleshoot this?

    Thanks

No public wish lists :(
