TinyDuino / Re: read the status led for the battery
« Last post by lennevia on October 07, 2020, 02:04:00 PM »
I believe I may have personally emailed you, but I will post the answers to your questions here for all forum users to see.

It depends on the processor board.

For the TinyZero – there isn’t a way to read the status due to the charging LED being encapsulated in a circuit with the voltage regulator.

For the TinyDuino – you would need to read the voltage of the processor and determine from there whether it is charging or not.

The TinyScreen+ is similar to the TinyDuino, and we have a ready-made tutorial for the TinyScreen+ and how to display the battery voltage if you are interested in knowing the state of charge of a TinyScreen+: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Help/TinyScreenPlus-Battery-Voltage-Tutorial/ Just note that this tutorial only works for the TinyScreen+.

TinyDuino / read the status led for the battery
« Last post by varotodfc on October 06, 2020, 08:33:01 PM »
Hi everyone,

I wonder if there is a command to access the status of the led that indicates if the battery is charging or not and what is the name of that LED. 

For example:

Code: [Select]
digitalRead(LED_name)

John,

We do have 2-pin JST cables that you could solder onto a motor to use with the Dual Motor TinyShield: https://tinycircuits.com/collections/cables-connectors/products/jst-sh-2-pin-connector

We also have 3-pin JST cables for servos if you were interested in those as well: https://tinycircuits.com/collections/cables-connectors/products/3-pin-jst-sh-pigtail-100mm

Hope that helps!

Rena,

Thanks for the fix!

Question....do mating connectors with wires exist so that one can connect (plug in) a DC motor to the board (and solder the wire ends to the motor_?

John,

It looks like some recent updates went wrong on this page. I will fix them up today.

Thanks for the catch and letting us know!

TinyDuino / Re: TinyScreen Smart Watch Compiler issues
« Last post by lennevia on October 05, 2020, 12:09:04 PM »
Hello, 

The redefinition error is most likely due to downloading a library or arduino program and having duplication somewhere in your Arduino folders. I recommend going through and deleting all traces you have of the example and starting over with the libraries included above to make sure you have the right folders in the right places.

Hi, I'm having an almost similar issue with compiling the sketch with my Arduino IDE. I verified that my TinyZero works by uploading the blinking led example but when I opened SmartWatchAndroidST.ino and clicking upload, I'm presented with 2 errors.

redefinition of 'long unsigned int millisOffsetCount' and 'ble_can_sleep' was not declared in this scope.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Looks like the entire "download" section is mistaken, as well.

And, yes, it's Dual (not Duel) Motor TinyShield...jg

I believe that the schematic for the dual motor tinyshield is incorrect...looks like the sensor board schematic, instead.  Go here and click on schematic to confirm.  Thanks....john
