Willem,

Nice catch! The datasheets and schematics are in the correct repo, but for some reason, the schematic pdf is incorrect and I will get that fixed on the Wiki/Learn site and the product page today. Since the part number of the NRF24L01+ 2.4 GHz Shield is one away from the 433 Shield, it looks like a simple mixup.

The GitHub is updated with the correct file now: https://github.com/TinyCircuits/TinyCircuits-TinyShield-NRF24L01-ASD2163/raw/master/design_files/ASD2163.pdf

Thanks for letting us know!

TinyDuino / Re: TEMPERATURE / HUMIDITY TINYSHIELD I2C Communication

The SDA, SCL, GND, and VCC pads can all be soldered to like you would normally make connections directly to an Arduino. So, yes, you can use them for connecting an additional I2C device.

I hope that helps!

Thanks,

General Discussion / Re: where is TinyTV IR receiver?
« on: January 04, 2021, 01:44:52 PM »
Hello,

The IR Receiver is located at the top of the TinyTV on the MicroSD and Audio TinyShield. Looking at the picture on the product page, it would be the black square at the bottom of the board: https://tinycircuits.com/collections/audio/products/microsd_audio-tinyshield

When installed in the TinyTV, the chip is at the top of the TV case.

You could try using a fresh battery in the Tiny Remote, but since the enclosure blocks the receiver, you may only get around 12" of reach with the Remote at that point.

I hope that helps!

Thanks,
Réna

Have you tried the original example for the TinyScreen from the getting started tutorial? https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Display/TinyScreen_TinyShield_Tutorial/

Glad the issue could be sorted out!

Thanks for the update!

Hello,

You mentioned you found this program from the product page. I believe the full starting tutorial might help point you in the right direction: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Sensors/GPS_TinyShield_Tutorial/

It looks like the example you are using is from the "GPS Tracker and Data Logger" project tutorial that requires some additional hardware other than a processor and GPS TinyShield. Are you using all of the same hardware that is referenced in the tutorial? You can see the full tutorial here: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Projects/GPS-Tracker-Data-Logger_Tutorial/

Let me know if that helps, or if you run into any other questions!

I noticed you had some other comments on multiple threads ranging from recently to a few years ago - to keep things organized I will work on responding to this thread that you started and disregard the other comments, so please make sure to ask any outstanding questions in this thread.

Thank you,

Réna

Sorry this has gone so long without a reply!

Thank you so much for developing this game!

General Discussion / Re: TinyScreen+ PIN breakout
« on: November 30, 2020, 04:36:37 PM »
Kon,

That's certainly the right connector that you would want to use - and it would work, but be a little difficult to handle and very fragile since the part is so small. For the pin breakout, it might be easier to consider a proto board TinyShield. These are the most popular: https://tinycircuits.com/collections/proto-boards/products/proto-board-tinyshield

But there are other options: https://tinycircuits.com/collections/proto-boards

I believe the Cyber Monday sale is going on until midnight today. so I'd recommend getting them while they're on sale!

We send out orders as they come in, but if you ordered a TinyScreen+ today, we might still have the order unpacked if you wanted us to add something!

Hope that helps!

Thanks,
Réna

Cryptoxic,

Were you able to get the TinyScreen working?

Glad to hear you could sort it out!

It seems restarting everything usually seems to do the trick for most electronics  ;)

This is awesome! It's great to finally see pictures of the tiny rocket!

We are looking to hopefully release the ZOE GPS TinyShield on our website sometime in the next few months. Thanks so much for putting it to good use and reporting back on your findings!

Looks like the picture link got broken from an edit on the product page.

I will build the site later today to get it fixed. Good find!

TinyDuino / Re: Dual Motor Tiny Shield with LEDs
« on: November 17, 2020, 05:01:06 PM »
Hello,

Yes, you could use a Dual Motor TinyShield to drive some LEDs. Since the LEDs draw quite a bit of power, it would probably be best to attach the series of LEDs to both motor outputs so that you don't have to approach the upper limit (1.8A) on one of the motor chips.

This has been done by others with other motor chips, so it's not a crazy idea if it makes sense for your project.

Thanks,
Réna

TinyDuino / Re: HC-SR04 on proto board
« on: November 17, 2020, 03:19:41 PM »
Hello,

It sounds like you may have damaged the ultrasonic sensor with the loose connections if you are no longer able to read data using the Arduino UNO that previously worked with the sensor.

For testing a circuit without making soldered connections, you might want to consider using the Proto Terminal Blocks TinyShield in the future: https://tinycircuits.com/collections/proto-boards/products/proto-terminal-blocks-tinyshield

As mentioned in the forum post you linked, even if you were using less voltage than the 5V required by the HC-SR04, it sounds like the sensor would function at some capacity.

Let me know if you are able to get the sensor working with the Arduino UNO again!

Thanks,
Réna

General Discussion / Re: Question about TinyDuino Smartwatch
« on: November 17, 2020, 12:46:33 PM »
There are programs for the TinyZero to be used for the Smart Watch project that will be added to GitHub and the tutorial for future reference.

Until then, they are attached to this forum message.

Best,
Réna
