Sorry it’s been a little while since the last update! I switched the screen capture from PNG to BMP which sped it up from almost 3.5s per click to under .5s per click. The bottleneck is the scope, which takes some time changing the format. BMP8 is by far the fastest of the scope picture […]
I’ve added channel offsets for all four channels, time offset, and refactored it to start making it object oriented! The channels are all objects now, and soon time will be one as well.
I’m in my first Java class in school. In my Python class, I decided to do a few little projects in MicroPython to combine Embedded Systems with Python to extend what I was learning in class. Well, that wasn’t going to work with Java. The closest I could get to embedded programming in Java was […]
Sorry it has taken a while for me to post anything. With work, school, and the holidays, the last few months have been busy. I’m in the middle of a two week break between terms, and trying to make the most of it! First off, there has been another platform change for the Strike and […]
One of the classes that I’m in this term is an introduction to Python, so I figured that I’d give MicroPython a shot. I have a LoLin branded NodeMCU v3 kicking around, and have done a little bit of messing around with it. Tonight, I figured that I’d try out the PWM on the NodeMCU and […]
The Rigol DS1054Z is a beast for $350 USD. 50MHz worth of bandwidth, 12MB of sample RAM, 1GSa/s spread across four channels, and more functions than you can shake a stick at! I haven’t had much of a chance to play with it since I’ve been super busy with school, but from what I’ve done […]
In my quest to get the Strike and Dipper up to snuff, I found a program to automatically determine the magnetic declination from any location on Earth, the World Magnetic Model from NOAA. It is really lightweight, if you’re working on a PC or SoC, but the geoid information alone is 4 MB. So I […]
And the second seal was opened and spewed forth… SCHI.com! Yippee! All of the posts that appear prior to this originally appeared on Jake’s SBC Channel on Hubzilla.
This post was originally published on June 25, 2018 at https://sparklechicken.net/channel/jakessbc I forgot to mention this earlier, but I made a non-connected version the the lamp with a spare Arduino Uno that I had kicking around and sent it to my Dad for Father’s Day. He’s a Denver Broncos fan so it oscillates from blue […]
This post was originally published on May 30, 2018 at https://sparklechicken.net/channel/jakessbc I found a whole sheet of 100 WS2812s for $10 and a pack of two ESP8266s for $12 and couldn’t pass them up. Funky art time! Big shout out to StackExchange for the colorFade function, and showing me that my means of separating […]
