We are using the SLD33149P in a on stage demo next week.
We were in final test and ran into a wall and are in a panic.
Running arduino Uno
Using pins 5, 6 pwm to control x and y servos
We are commanding the servos from cell text through SLD shield to Arduino PWM pins.
Every time we poll for SMS messages the servos jerks like there is noise on the PWM’s.
We disabled our servo code so we know that the PWM is not changing deliberately.
We disconnected the pins 5, 6 from the SLD card by bending them out from under the header and the problem remains. IE nothing from the Arduino is connected to these pins.
Arduino and sheild powered from USB but servos powered from external supply. All grounded to same point.
I seems like there is some kind of noise problem.
This exact problem shows up on two identical builds.
Any ideas. Does the SLD put anything on these pins? (checking the schematic after this), but the bent pin test would seem to invalidate this theory.
Desperately need help…
