heres my little playground.
it contains:
netduino mini
102x64 lcd - spi
9dof imu sensor module + barometric sensor - i2c
128kb eeprom - i2c
temerature sensor - analog
trackball connected to pcf8574 - i2c
mcp23017 - i2c
4bit 7 segment (not connected atm)
sd-card slot - spi
real time clock (drifting a lot, like 2-3 secs an hour ...) - i2c
cp2102 usb-uart bridge
ftdi usb-uart bridge
max232
one step up and one step down module for 3.3 and 5v power supply

not on the sceen: joystick and led matrix module.

soon ill add a spi master <-> spi master wireless chip (NRF24L01+)
maybe some pIR chips (but well, they work without netduino/uC also)

next month plans:
i2c camera module (to save some pictures on the sd card) - not doable
bluetooth module - i hope i can get it to programm my netduino w/o cable (!) - working
ENC28J60 network module (spi) - dont have ethernet cable right now
TEA5767 fm radio (i2c) - todo

ill make better pictures as soon as i get my hands on a real digicam, not webcam as of now


everything now is working ofc Posted Image
(except the imu, need more code for them, in progress!) - imu working (at least i can read the basic values)


greetings


// edit: some video of my compass in action.
atm it sends its data per uart to pc, gets rendered there in xna

its on my old led matrix




//edit: COBS and a simple UART transport system added
// cobs is just ported from original author // damn - link is gona and i dont have it anymore :(

//edit multi I2c and temerature sensor code added, its a smooth sensor, change history lenght to //make it faster

 

//edit: i now hooked up my rgb matrix :)

its only 3bit color, but still impressive

i also designed an app with that i can create images in color for it, its still in progress

(i klick the pixels, it shift to the next aviable color, a button to save it to a file is missing)

 

i also made a small "testbench" wich connect per uart to my netduino, and is capable of read/write register for a specified device (in that case my gyro sensor)

 

//edit: change in uart.cs its better now > it waits till it actually received the data it expects

uart class deleted for now, it has a memory leak

 

//edit: drivers for the mcp3201 added - 12 bit external adc.

also the uart bug seems to only affect stm32, have to look further into that.

 

// edit: uploaded a fixed version of realtimeclock (ds1307)

Cool, that's what I call a feature rich playground! Mine only has 4 optocoupled MOSFETS for driving stuff that need power, a binary rotator, a button, an optointerruptor and some transistors. Soldered multiple headers on everything so that I can easily re-wire for different setups. I think I got the same step up/down converters, got them on ebay, got yours there too? What about audio, I got a tiny 2W stereo amp but it's not on my playground yet...

TEA5767 fm radio (i2c)

Got this nifty little radio too, would you be willing to share some code for it?
I'd love to hear some radio on the mini amp.

hehe paul, yeah your right, i plan on buying some different for data lines @hanzibal: i think it will arrive in about a month (china snail mail) - ya i can share it than @hanzibal: yes my step-up - down are from ebay, the quality is very good, but they make a lof of electronical noise, so for sensor some capacitors are good. my oldest is 6 months and delievers 2amps w/o getting hot (just warm) - every day, and still works! optocouplers i have there too, from the trackball to the pcf8574 (cos the trackball was the only thing driven by 5v, but it works with 3v3 too, so they are useless now)

@hanzibal: i think it will arrive in about a month (china snail mail) - ya i can share it than

I got a couple of TEA5767 boards (they are really tiny) about a week ago but haven't had time to try them out yet. You'll probably beat me to it and that's probably just as well Posted Image

EDIT: About the step ups, I haven't run them through the scope but they seem to work really well. I connected a 1800mAh LiPo to one of them and had my Netduino Mini based mp3 player running off that for about 8 hours straight with earphones on full volume (no, I didn't wear them). At these voltages (3V7 -> 5V) efficiency is about 70% percent but should improve with increased voltage.

I haven't tried the step downs yet, but will use them on my amplifier @ 21V -> 5V at some point.

i added the code for the tea. automatic station search is not included yet. i dont know if i even add this, no need.

 

video? well cant see much, more like hear :)

 

https://www.dropbox....r8lj/Bild47.jpg

 

its hooked up to my soundcards microphone in. antenna is a 75cm long wire

it works very good.

 

iam using 4 buttons to choose stations.

Yeah, that's exactly what I want - to hear it while you fiddle around with different radio stations.

May I suggest an IR remote control?

 

Because you *DO* have an IR remote control in place, don't you?

No playground with at least an ounce of self respect could do without one you know...   ;)

Hello, 

 

Very nice ideas. 

I am very interested in the Tea5767.cs, but I have no access. Is that intentional?

 

Best regards 

Ren
