In Topic: How to reduce pin usage

A nice thing about these serial to parallel chips is that all the outputs change at the same time. Individual GPIOs have to be changed one at a time.
Not always a problem, but sometimes important.

Well done.


My first experience of I2C (not on a Netduino) was a very bad one. We spent around a week trying to debug our comms issue before we finally read the data sheet's errata list and found out the I2C would never work properly on the processor we were using. Then we had to work out how to make the product work without working I2C hardware - not fun!

Good to hear.

When you're done, the wiki is a good place to share.

My knowledge has run out now.

There have been lots of threads about I2C on the forums, but I found that searching for them does not seem to work for me.


Perhaps someone else knows if the ACK is actually checked by the Netduino?

Maybe when writing, the ACK is not checked and the Netduino just counts the number of bytes sent out.

Great project!
