TinyDuino Processors & TinyShields / Unknown problem with sketch
« on: March 17, 2021, 01:07:13 PM »
Ok, I have my board working (finally!)

I uploaded the included blink code, and it worked perfectly.  So, now it's time to do my own first sketch.  Here's what I have:

Code: [Select]
//Pin Number Assignments:
const int LED1 = 4;

void setup()
    pinMode(LED1, OUTPUT);

void loop()
    digitalWrite(LED1, HIGH); // turn the LED on (HIGH is the voltage level)
    delay(1000);              // wait for a second
    digitalWrite(LED1, LOW);  // turn the LED off by making the voltage LOW
    delay(1000);              // wait for a second

I'm using the Tinycircuits proto terminal blocks tinyshield (ASD2005-R-T-I):

The LED, which is attached to ground and #4, comes on immediately; it then sort of blinks (as if you had an intermittent wire -- that's the effect) - and then is on, but dimly.  That's it.  There's no repetitive blinking.  I'm obviously missing SOMETHING, but I don't know what.  I'm an expert programmer in BASIC, C, C#, PHP, and am currently learning python.  The structure of the program is correct; I'm wondering if I have something connected wrong.

Also:  Do I have to "clear" the memory of the board before uploading new code, or does it simply overwrite the old?  Any help is appreciated.  Eventually, I'm going to have nine different LED's, blinking on various schedules.  What I'd like to have is this:

1. Blink on while #2 is off.
2. Blink on while #1 is off.
3. Blink on while #3 is off.
4. Blink on while #4 is off.
5. Random sequence with #5, #6, & #7.
6. Random sequence with #5, #6, & #7.
7. Random sequence with #5, #6, & #7.
8. Ramp up/down (different timing from #9)
9. Ramp up/down (different timing from #8)

Any help is greatly appreciated!

TinyDuino Processors & TinyShields / USB port not detected
« on: March 15, 2021, 09:01:57 PM »
I just purchased a tinyduino ASM2001-R-L (with the lithium battery option) and a tinyshield ASD2101-R.  I plugged in the battery, turned on the switch, and then connected my tinyshield.  The light on the main board comes on - and that's all that happens.  There's no response from the system showing this board.  I installed the software/drivers, but I don't see it.  This cable is definitely good; I tried two other cables, but the board LED doesn't come on with them; with this cord, it does.  I'm assuming, therefore, that the cable is good.

Any ideas why this isn't being detected?  I already have a device on COM3; do I need to remove it?
