Re: seeeduino mega : 16 extra digital i/o

Rich;

I'll give it a try sometime this weekend.

Thanks;

Re: seeeduino mega : 16 extra digital i/o

I would attach it, but the bbs has an issue with .c files so I can't
Why don't you just rename them as .txt files and try attaching?

Shield needed for Seeeduino Mega board

So the Seeeduino Mega board has been out for some time now, great board by the way. When are you going to offer a development prototyping shield board that fits it? Shield boards made for Arduino Mega are availible but won't fit your Mega expanded I/O connectors and it's not like some other company ...

Re: seeeduino mega : 16 extra digital i/o

Rich; I don't believe anyone has taken on the task of mapping the additional 16 digital pins into the Arduino IDE core library. It would be really cool if you can, I know the task is a little more software intensive then I felt I could handle when I looked at those library files after first getting ...

Re: seeeduino mega : 16 extra digital i/o

1: The Seeeduino Mega has 16 extra digi i/o pins, but these pins are difficult to use, and surely won't be supported by the stantard Firmata sketch (which isn't functional for the normal Arduino Mega, anyhow, according to info on the Arduino forum). Note familure with Firmata, but the 16 extra digi...

Re: What is your suggestion to seeedstudio?

I really like the designs on your latest series of Arduino boards. Great features, great quality, great prices. Keep up the creative designs. I have two suggestions: 1. How about a proto-shield for the new mega board that would match up with the added connectors? 2. Anyway you can look into the 3.3v...

Re: seeeduino mega : 16 extra digital i/o

Steve; Here is a simple example of turning on and off the first and last I/O bits of the extended bits that the Seeeduino Mega makes avalible. /* * Toggle extended I/O bits 70 and 86 on and off for Seeeduino Mega board * * Also added an example of a digital input reading the state of digital pin 71 ...

Re: seeeduino mega : 16 extra digital i/o

I guess you could write a conversion function that would convert new higher digital pin numbers and mimic what the arduino digitalwrite() and digitalread() functions due. You could call them extendedwrite() and extendedread() :lol: Anyway below is a write up from the Arduino site on how direct port ...

Re: seeeduino mega : 16 extra digital i/o

Hi Steve; I've been testing out my new Seeeduino Mega sense it arrived earlier this week. I too was not real clear on the extra I/O pins Vs the Ardunio Mega. What I've come to understand is that Arduino mega digital pins 0 to 69 are the same as for the Seeduino and that digital pins 54-69 are the sa...
