  • How close does the amplifier need to be to the speaker? I want to make a multi-channel amplifier so that speakers could be placed all around a gallery, but the cable runs would probably be between 10 and 50 feet long…

  • I’m having a similar jittery problem…<br />
    <br />
    I have:<br />
    <br />
    - AHRS code on 9DOF, modified to continuously output euler values at 115200 baud.<br />
    <br />
    - Bluetooth Mate soldered to 9DOF header, sending 12 byte frames of data to a computer.<br />
    <br />
    - Simple computer-side debugging program in c to receive and display the data.<br />
    <br />
    Sometimes it pauses and then seems to make up for the pause by spitting out a ton of data at once, and sometimes it just stops entirely.<br />
    <br />
    I wonder if it may be the 9DOF slowing down since I have it sending data as fast as possible?<br />
    <br />
    Perhaps I should be using raw input mode instead of canonical mode when I initialize my terminal to receive the data?<br />
    <br />
    Does anyone have experience with streaming as much data as possible via bluetooth?

  • My button pads came in the mail earlier. Very nice.
    I was just drawing a face plate in cad based on the dimensional drawing and noticed that the measurements don’t add up:
    Total width: 100mm
    Total space per dimension: 28mm
    Total buttons per dimension: 60mm
    28 + 60 != 100
    So, I got out a ruler and it turns out the space between buttons is incorrect on the drawing.
    Button spacing: 5mm at edges and 10mm between buttons.

No public wish lists :(
