Re: Redis client, packaging questions

I can second this concern. Using an older version of the uredis package on older wipy (v1.0) seemed to work fine with some of the board firmware. In trying this out again on the Wipy 2, there seems to be some sort of non-specific time-out error. Functionality similar to what redis provides seems qui...

Re: DAQ Trigger Setup and Control

With some nudging from folks here on the forums (thank you), I feel like I'm on the right track. The challenge that I'm now facing is how to stop or change the callback correctly. From what I read there is some disagreement for the pyb vs the wipy timer function. As it stands I put in a global "trig...

Re: DAQ Trigger Setup and Control

Ahh, yes that is a sound solution. I will surely give that a try. The one aspect I'm still not clear on is whether or not the timer callback is actually changed in the loop above. Is there anyway to confirm that the callback has been changed?

Re: DAQ Trigger Setup and Control

So I've been returning to this issue and am trying to figure the approach to stopping the callback in an elegant and defined fashion. I am trying to fill an array and essentially perform some signal averaging. To do this, my idea was to loop through the array a set number of times. The question is h...

Re: WiPy Binary Updates

After updating to the latest version of micropython on the wipy it was my hope to utilize the following function. Can anyone comment on how to access this pulse function? It doesn't appear to be in the latest build but it is in the documentation. machine.time_pulse_us(pin, pulse_level, timeout_us=10...

Re: WiPy Binary Updates

That is the answer I was hoping for. Presently the documentation is pointing folks (such as myself to github)"

WiPy Binary Updates

Hopefully there is an easy answer to this question:

Is there a plan to update the release binaries for the WiPy any time in the near future? It looks like the units shipping are still at micropython 1.6.

Re: DAQ Trigger Setup and Control

Thanks for picking up upon that modulo error. It seems to me there would be a general need to find a way to pause or reinitialize a timer without setting the whole thing up. Then again maybe if there is a way to remove the callback temporarily that might work to. I just hoping there is a way to paus...

DAQ Trigger Setup and Control

In short I'm trying to use the wireless capabilities of the WIPY unit to transfer the data from a periodic timer loop linked to an ADC pin. I'm having a bit of trouble with the setup as I also need to sync the data acquisition with an external trigger. This brings up a few questions as to how use tw...

Re: Redis client, packaging questions

Dwight,

This is great! After a little haggling on my part I was able to get it working and have a loop poll the redis queue on my laptop and have it change the frequency of the LED on the WiPy. Though simple, it will serve as the basis for more complicated efforts to follow.

Cheers,

Brian
