Re: Design my own pyboard, basic questions..

Also USART based bootloading can be done without a crystal. Dave and his brother have post about this, and it is a good backup. Because there is a Python interpreter layer there really is not benefit of using a fancy programmer since you do not get to do the low level debugging those offer. Sometime...

Re: do you know a good GPS locator chip?

I often look at Sparkfun and Adafruit for common products that usually offer good getting started guides.

And like Dave said GPS modules are usually 3.3 and/or 5v tolerant USARTs that are easy to interface with microcontrollers.

Re: MicroPython on PlatformIO!

Yes, and I use their products. But they are targeted, as far as I know, only on their boards and not for general micropython use. I could easily be wrong. One of my reasoning is that I use Atom for several workflows and it is nice to have one app to do many things instead of a IDE for each applicati...

Re: MicroPython on PlatformIO!

Hello, I wanted to add to this topic. I was chatting with Ivan over at PlatformIO about adding support for Micropython more directly. Ivan was interested in this and depending on funding and support would work on adding this. I pointed out that using Dave's awesome rshell (https://github.com/dhyland...

Re: Baudrate port 6

I know this is old, but I am glad that I found this. I was working on a very basic port and banging my head against the wall on what value needed to be changed to get the clock right, which was effecting my CAN settings.

Thank you!!!

Re: ESP8266 make fails during MPY section

I think I see what happened. I have had several pages with instruction opened for about a week and instructions have been updated since then. Now with the updates I am able to install all the build tools and make a ESP8266 build.

Thanks!!!!!

ESP8266 make fails during MPY section

Hello, I am been working through small issue setting up a dev environment for the ESP8266 and micropython. After setting up a clean environment I ran through the processes for the open SDK and when getting to the building micropython for the ESP8266 (after make axlts) I got this error, which is some...

Re: CAN bus implementation

Yes, I am excited also. This is what was holding me back from using this on projects that I can really put my time into.

Also found this reference that also included filters, which makes me happy.

Re: CAN bus implementation

I have been away for a bit working on other project and came back to see if I found any updates. On another thread I found what appears to be a working implementation of CAN. http://forum.micropython.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=436&p=2596&hilit=can+bus#p2596 Is it true that it is now working...
