@Maximilian-Gerhardt wow! Thank you very much for your response, at least I don't have the feeling like I'm shouting into an empty cave!
I'm surprised at how beta the i2c library is for something that's been out for ~years. I feel like the first feature for boards like this (after GPIO control on its own pins) should be a matured and robust i2c library. Since, almost anything you want to do with them will require i2c communication...
Again, thank you for the heads up with known issues. I'll try to keep stumbling through this and if I succeed I'll make it available.
The Omeage2 has no analog, limited PWM, non-deterministic timing.
Arduinos have a varied number of analog, digital and PWM pins, are deterministic as to how long things take to run, have 'bank' i/o support (which I've not seen implemented on any copy device), software serial, sleep mode, ...
Thank you @Ken-Conrad ! I found a really good example of how to use PySerial on instructables that was written for Pi and it worked out well after i changed UART details. Now just to get mysql installed and we good to go! :)
FRDM KL-25Z is an awesome little board based on the MBED platform. And then, old school, home-brewed 8031/51 based boards, which, because of the ease with which you can access every part of the hardware, still kicks arse for some applications because there is no OS that gets in the way.
@Gamaliel-Valencia well, if the thing is still within any type of warranty framework then i would put in a ticket for return, mention the thread so if they have any ideas over what has already been discussed they can join in. but it seems to me you have tried all that you could. other boards have just not responded as well so some of them just may be broken. wish i could offer something else but out of ideas.
@Douglas-Kryder I really appreciate your support and I think you are right, I will send my ticket and wait.
Make sure that the system is fully operative by using a delay as suggested by @fossette
As is mentioned in the referenced post, make sure the program you want to run at boot terminates in a timely manner and doesn't end up blocking the start up process - e.g. run it in the background
Hi! I'm trying to compile "arduino-dock" package from openwrt feed, but source code can't be retrieved from github. Here's the error:
Checking out files from the git repository...
Cloning into 'arduino-dock'...
ERROR: Repository not found.
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.
Hi, I have recently been revisiting building system images for the Omega and get exactly the same error if I include arduino-dock and similar for some other packages.
FYI: I have produced some small updates to the Omega Arduino Expansion Board design.
Added a jumper to allow Arduino VIn to be connected to the External Power Sources and the Power Regulator
Allowed for usage of TSR12450 power regulator (see https://www.adafruit.com/products/1065) as a compatible alternative to the L7805 regulator
