    No CODE MODE at PicaxeCloud.com

    Just tested on Firefox running on a linux machine. Works fine. I'm able to switch to Basic mode and type new commands, check and download the .axe file. Any chance you need to update your browser?

    Serial LCD display for PIC projects ?

    Indeed, Julian Picaxe its actually a small beast. You can do quite a lot of things with it without spending time trying to figure out how to code it. This is also a reason that although I bought the OshonSoft compilers years ago I never got around to actually using them.

    Serial LCD display for PIC projects ?

    There is also OshonSoft BASIC compilers for PICs that you might want to take a look at. It's not free but it's pretty cheap.

    DY-SV17F MP3 Module

    Managed to get around testing this after I received the modules. For the test I used the "I/O Independent mode 0" with the examples files stored on the modules from the factory and the speaker used was a small 8ohm 0.5w. I was able to get reliable playback of the sound files down to about 2.8v...

    DY-SV17F MP3 Module

    Ok then, I just ordered a few to test if I can power them with 3.3v. I will update the thread as soon as I have the results. Will take some time...

    DY-SV17F MP3 Module

    Nice find Erco! I really like the smd type module. Do you know if those modules work with 3.3v or 3.0v?

    ARM binaries for command line compilers?

    Are you using fanoush's binaries or did you install qemu from the repo?

    ARM binaries for command line compilers?

    Have you tried the 32bit binaries provided by fanoush?

    Pwmout on B.0 for 40X2

    I think I messed the pinouts somehow on the 40x2. I was under the impression that those pins had PWM support. @PhilHornby you are right, the Wizards only shows 2 pins. Hpwm might be tha way to go enabling or disablign specific channels. @inglewoodpete I breadboarded the circuit using a 28X2, I...

    Pwmout on B.0 for 40X2

    Hello. I'm trying to figure out why I can't pulse a LED on B.0 using pwmout/pwmduty when I can turn it on and off without any issues. I tried looking at the command descriptions for any limitations but I didn't find anything relative. I am using the smd version of the 40X2 chip (vB.3). Any...

    Tiny Collision Detector

    According to the datasheet it is a 940nm wavelength, which is in infrared zone. Plastics that are infrared transmitting should be fine. If you need to sense touch, using it as a proximity sensor, you could also consider the TCRT5000 sensor (ir transmitter/receiver pair).

    Measure current on 12V line

    You can use a shunt sensor in series with the lamp and measure the voltage drop across the resistor. Also, you can use a hall effect current sensor like this one: Hall Current Sensor

    You could also try to replicate the fire effect using a humidifier device and lights:

    ARM binaries for command line compilers?

    Of course, it would be great if RevEd would actually produce command line compiler binaries for Rpi. Not sure why they pretend that RPi doesn't exist.
