Wiring News / Is Wiring Back?
« on: May 25, 2016, 06:24:42 AM »
According to Sneak peek: Arduino’s Primo and Primo Core IoT duo, Arduino.ORG is working again with Hernando Barragán, the initiator of the Wiring framework, on which Arduino and Energia are based.

Quote
“Developing the Arduino IDE for the Primo and Primo Core is our main focus right now,” continues Giori. “In other words, the ‘Hello World’ of Arduino is to blink an LED (blinky sketch) and if you download that same sketch that runs on an Uno to your Primo, it will ‘just work’. The big effort for Arduino software developers is that this board does so much more than an Uno. The number of libraries and APIs has to therefore grow accordingly. Our software developers coordinate with Hernando Barragan, the author of Wiring which became the Arduino IDE, so our goal of course is to maintain the ease-of-use principle as we expand the core libraries."

Nice to see Wiring back! Should we expect Wiring++?

Exhibition / LCD_screen Library Suite
« on: November 11, 2013, 12:28:54 PM »
Please find the new LCD_screen Library Suite that replaces the Serial_LCD Library Suite.

The LCD_screen Library Suite supports a wider range of SPI and 16-parallel affordable screens, apart from the 4D Systems Picaso-based serial screens.

Enjoy :)

Obsolescence Notice
 
The Serial_LCD Library Suite was designed for 4D Systems screens on serial SGC mode.
 
4D Systems has launched new screens and a major update of its Workshop 4 IDE with an outstanding feature: ViSi-Genie. ViSi-Genie provides a graphical environment to design a user interface in just a couple of minutes.
 
The new serial connection SPE2 mode is not compatible with SGC, making the Serial_LCD Library Suite obsolete. 4D Systems provides new libraries for the Arduino, PixAxe, Raspberry Pi, Pascal and C platforms.

Any news?

For your information, chipKIT is considering updating its IDE —called MPIDE— to Arduino 1.0.

Exhibition / 4D Systems Screens: A Genie for Your Wiring Sketch
« on: December 18, 2012, 03:07:17 AM »
Users of my Serial_LCD Library Suite already know 4D Systems, the maker of the screens on which my Serial_LCD library runs.

4D Systems has just released a major update of its IDE Workshop with an outstanding feature: ViSi-Genie.

ViSi-Genie allows to build a professional-looking graphic user interface very easily.



It only requires to drag-and-drop elements, including buttons, sliders or more elaborate ones, and define the events associated, like pressing a button or moving the cursor on a slide-bar.



Read my review with an example completed in just a couple of minutes!

Please find a new release of the Serial_LCD Library Suite:
 
proxySerial • Nov 28, 2012 release 314 • utoa renamed u64toa
Gallery • Nov 29, 2012 release 311 • array[MAXPICTURE] instead of vector
GUI • Dec 01, 2012 release 318 • new area object
 
The new area object is a button without text or a hidden button. This is especially useful to define active zones on a displayed picture.
 
Instead of defining each element, buttons, icons, … of the interface, display a single picture and define active zones on it.
 
As always,

Driving two screens is possible with the Serial_LCD Library Suite, with one serial port per screen.

Learn more on how to proceed and download the sketch with two galleries!

Please find the new release of the Serial_LCD library suite, with

Sep 19, 2012 release 336 • stability enhancement

especially for the Gallery library.

A very tricky bug with chipKIT has been fixed. Actually, chipKIT MPIDE doesn't support vector —see http://www.chipkit.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1511&hilit=vector

As always, documentation is  :arrow: here and download  :arrow: there!

Please find a new release of the Serial_LCD Library Suite:

Sep 01, 2012 release 335 • __AVR_ATmega32U4__ added

The Arduino Leonardo is now supported.

Performance enhancements have also been added.

Please note that button::define, button::stringDefine and Label are going to be deprecated in the next major release.

Consider button::dDefine, button::dStringDefine and dLabel instead.

As always, documentation and download are available here.

Enjoy ;)

TI MSP430 / Re: msp430 support
« on: September 01, 2012, 02:34:03 PM »
The LaunchPad MSP430 has a Processing-based Wiring-derived Arduino-like IDE called Energia.



It is based on the Arduino 1.0 dialect.

Please find the new release of the Serial_LCD library suite, with

Jul 300, 2012 • Version 3

Version 3 merges versions 1 and 2 into a single unified release. It supports Arduino 23, Arduino 1.0, chipKIT MPIDE and Wiring.



Previous version 1 supported Arduino 23 and chipKIT MPIDE, while version 2 was specific to Arduino 1.0, in parallel with version 1.

As always, find documentation here and download from there.

After many hours of hard work, the documentation for the Serial_LCD Library Suite is available!

It comes in three different flavours:
• PDF file with index, ~0.6MB
• Document set docset bundle for Xcode, ~2.9MB
• HTML files folder with search script, ~5.5MB



Download from here

Once the potentially hazardous short being fixed, here is a clock using the Play Shield with a µOLED-160-G1(SGC) from 4D Systems.



Thanks to the Serial_LCD Library Suite, 2 lines of codes are required:

• Set and Define
Code: [Select]
uint16_t radius = min( myLCD.maxX()/2-4, myLCD.maxY()/2-4 );
myClock.define(&myLCD, myLCD.maxX()/2, myLCD.maxY()/2, radius);

• Update and Draw
Code: [Select]
myRTC.get();
myClock.draw(myRTC.hour(), myRTC.minute(), myRTC.second());
