Re: Problem with RBBB/Atmel168

I'd try some other pins to see if the problem was global. Are you using the provided LED test program that comes with the Arduino IED?

Get Connectors from Logitech Mice

I have to admit I am surprised that no one has chimed on this to help figure it out. Anyway, I did discover that if you can get a hold of some old/broken Logitech mice (probably some others too) and take them apart, you stand a good chance of finding an excellent 4 or 5 pin connector with about 3-4 ...

Proper name of the connector types?

What is the official and correct name of the type of connector one would use to make cables with to connect to the RBBB/BBB male headers? I am talking about the kind provided with the servo cable. I scavenged connectors out of an old copy machine that hook up well, but I don't know what this type of...

Re: running two independant processes

And finally to complete the thread (unless any one has anything to add) metro takes an unsigned long so the maximum interval time should be long enough for most applications.

Re: running two independant processes

I think I have a solution to the problem. It involves the metro library. Here is sample code that seems to be doing the job. The only think I am not sure of is exactly what the range of a metro object is. So I am not yet clear on how long the intervals can be. /* Two Process Experiment * * Blinks re...

running two independant processes

Hello all, It seems like it should be easy to find examples of this, but I have yet to do so. I did see somethng about state machines but the code that was being executed was very complicated and I could not sort out the basic method. At any rate, I am using two LEDs to simulate the end process. I b...
