Re: Hobby Components 16 Channel Logic Analyser (HCTEST0035)

I see from your section here about drivers that this is a Cypres FX2 based analyser. But can anyone tell me what else is inside? It does indeed use a Cypress FX2 device with the addition of two 74LCX245 transceivers to give it both 3.3V and 5V level comparability. In Joel Holdsworth's Open Tech Lab...

Re: EDTracker Bundle (HCKITS0021, 21B, 21E, 21F, 21G, 21H & 21I)

As far as I know rev3 has been designed to allow the final user to add a couple of components to get IR tracking working in addition to gyro/magneto tracking. I assume that V3.1A is designed in the same purpose, Yes that's correct. Can somebody explain what are the specifities of Rev3.1A V3.1A (our...

Re: WeMos D1 Mini Lithium Battery Shield (HCWEMO0009)

Would it charge the battery from the 5v line if the usb was plugged into a D1 mini for instance?
No, I'm afraid to charge the battery it must be powered via the battery shields USB port.

Re: SSD1306 128x64 Pixel uOLED display module (HCMODU0050&2)

You need to move resistor R3 to pads R1 and resistor R5 to pads R8. Connections will then be as follows: OLED Module.......Uno GND...................GND VCC..................+5V D0.....................A5 (SCK) D1.....................A4 (SDA/Din) RESET.................D8 (if using HCOLED library) DC ...

Re: IR Remote Control Kit (HCKITS0006)

Thanks for the information and glad you managed to fix the sketch. As you're no longer waiting on a fix I'll get the example in the first post updated as soon as convenient then.

Re: IR Remote Control Kit (HCKITS0006)

Sorry about that, and thanks for pointing it out. I wasn’t aware that the manufacture had changed the layout. Yours sounds like it’s very similar to the one in the image but I guess the keys have different key codes assigned to them. As it’s boxing day I won’t be able to check the stock until tomorr...

Re: Hobby Components 8x8x8 Cube Kit (HCKITS0050)

Glad you enjoyed building it. If you're using the USB to serial cable that came with the kit it's likely that you will need to install a driver for it. You can find OSX drivers on the Prolific website here:

Re: Dupont crimping tool

We don't at the moment I'm afraid. I don't know if this will help but If you've not got many to do I just use a small pair of needle-nose pliers. I use the end of the pliers to fold over each tab one at a time and then put them in between the pliers to crimp them.

Re: HCDisplay Arduino library for Hobby Components Displays

This would unfortunately be quite a tricky task as the internal I/O hardware of an Arm device differs quite significantly to an Atmel based ATMega microcontroller. To modify the library you'll need to be familiar in how to configure the ports of the Arm devices at a hardware level. If you have some ...

Re: W1209 Temperature control Switch (HCTHER0006)

I've have been asked this question in the past so maybe there is either some misinformation or a there is a variant/older version of this product that doesn't store settings. Obviously I cant comment on versions sold elsewhere but the ones we sell do keep their settings when power is removed.
