Re: TEK 4010/4014 Vector Graphics terminal DEMO

I don't think its worthwhile doing fill's with lines

Its better to find a python TEK 4010 client and add a new command for fills

Re: Protecting Bootloader from being Corrupted

Like Prolific did for clones? :shock: Possibly I know that one of the JLink updates seem to have bricked the clones. But I seems to get random bricking after using them for a while. I presumed this was basically the same thing, but until @dannyf mentioned it, I thought perhaps it was only me that h...

Re: TEK 4010/4014 Vector Graphics terminal DEMO

BTW. I took a look for vector asteroids code

I can't find a definitive source but there is some interesting code in this blog

Another thought...

Is there a python based TEK emulator?

Re: TEK 4010/4014 Vector Graphics terminal DEMO

Thanks for the info.

I recall some early video games that also used vector displays.

Perhaps we can have Asteriods ;-)

Re: Issues with RTC timings and prescalers

Dodgy soldering is often a problem with these boards.

Someone posted that the main crystal did not work.

Often the USB connections need to be resoldered.

Perhaps you can try carefully resoldering the LF crystal

My jlink v8 clones seem to have a habit if bricking themselves.. but I assumed that somehow the PC driver was deliberately bricking them.

Is this for the coordinates or purely for visual text?

Also...
I think you said it does not do fills ??

Is this because the original hardware was a vectior display?
