I finaly figured out that I can post threads with this thing (iPOD) only after changing my forum settings for the text editor to basic text.
I thought a blog about it would be a good test.
I am curious to find out how much I have to figure out to insert some of the fourms formatting feature here in plane text.
Just did a preview and I am glad I don't have to use any html "br" statements to get new lines:)
This is Version 1.3 of the "Using the Full PPDB" Project I am working on. I have modified and separated some code, changed some pin-outs, and used one of the PPDB's push-buttons to display the date. In later version updates, I will be adding more and more capabilities to the code.
From now on, All updates to the code will be in the Projects sub-forum so Check there first [URL]http://forums.parallax.com/showthread.php?134537-PPDB-Using-the-full-PPDB-Code-Version-1.3[/URL]
I just finished adding to my "PPDB - I2C - 17 segment display" project a DS1302 that is on the PPDB, I am mostly satisfied with the code but I need to read the ds1302 once every second instead of while multiplexing the display.
Here is a video I just uploaded:
I have Licensed the code under the MIT License. The code can be downloaded from the attached file. I will be soon
I just got the 17 segment display working using I2C. Using two [URL="http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=568-2027-5-ND"]PCA9555 I2C bus expanders[/URL]. One PCA9555 controls the Digits and Decimal Point, the other controls the 16 Segments. I have the PCA9555s wired up on a PCB ([URL="http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102846#"]Radio Shack Part #276-170[/URL]) and connected each of the INT (interrupt) pins to the Propeller.

Well I decided to add some more to my PE Kit: Permanent Power Supply Project, The propeller was taking up some room on the breadboard so I added it to the Proto Board.
