I use to have software for the skylab GPS but could not find it luckily U-blox still has U-centre8.12(2014) on the web. now...

    Measuring small voltages with 20x2

    two decimal places are usually enough for me but I guess a few more can be handy for calibrations sometimes #picaxe 18M2 #terminal 19200 SETFREQ M16 SYMBOL ADCvalue = W3 SYMBOL Volts = W4 Main: 'ReadADC10 C.0,ADCvalue ' ReadADC10 C.0,Volts ' IF ADCvalue = Volts THEN ConvertV '...

    adc stability for volt meter

    Hi late voyager, you have just proven what hippy wrote at post #32 your board must also be fitted witha 10k pulldown resistor a 15k and 1k equates to a 16 to 1 ratio ie @10v should equal 10/16 =0.625v if a 10k resistor is in parallel with 1K this would become 909 ohms so 15k and 909ohms equates...

    Hi late voyager, as Allycat has hinted it looks like serout command is reseting the adc channel the voltage divider is the same ratio 16:1 as before perhaps try init: #picaxe 20M2 #terminal 4800 pause 200 symbol batt= w0 serout C.0,N2400,(254,1):pause 10 main: serout...

    Parallel LCD with 20M2 C.x pins

    Hi Bryang, looks like your still having initialisation problems. the good thing I like about the 40x2 and the 18m2 they don't remap the port pins unlike the 20m2, I'm sure I've tried the code posted #15 before on a 20m2 perhaps the B port which maybe faster. I have a new bling 16x2 OLED I...

    code for reading a single i2c device

    Hi Benjie, as yourve already dicovered and hippy's quick at correcting things... I misread the datasheet quickly and was thinking adjacent bits MS5611-01BA address is 111011Cx, where C is the complementary value of the pin CSB. , but really the x bit means doesn't matter and if C bit is 1...

    Hi Benjie, like others have said receiving 255,255,255 its not talking with the gy-63 module the ebay pics look like they have 2200 ohm pullups with level shifting so 3 or 5v should work it looks like PE6 wont except the low default address of %1110 1101 so try with CSB pin high hardware...

    Hi mushroom, I remember doing one for aus before but could not find it,which is a pity as I always like to try and improve . the original used mixed AND and OR commands but it always takes me a while to relearn how to use this and test. So I've just used lots of AND lines in my adjust code,which...

    AXE027 - Bain of my life

    i guess this is one of the annoying quirks of pe6. most of us just plug the usb device in any port before we open pe6 and we are good to go. if we start pe6 first then plug in our device we always have to refresh COM ports,using Workspace Explorer then we are usually good to go. But if we have...
