Re: stm32duino library for VL53L0X LIDAR sensor

I thought ST has written their own "driver" for this device, but I can't find it yet, and looking on ST's community forum, people didnt seem happy with the lack of documentation on this device ST software is here http://www.st.com/en/embedded-software/stsw-img005.html but free registration is requi...

Re: hall effect tachometer

Get a non linear Hall sensor. In this application will work better than a linear Hall sensor.

Re: Some questions from the newbie

What happens if you connect the bluepill without the Arduino IDE running?
After about 10 seconds it should appear a serial com port.


Maybe the botloader is present but the resistor is still wrong.

Re: stm32duino library for VL530lox LIDAR sensor

It happened to me using their BME280 library but then I discovered that the begin function accept an address.
Maybe this library too accept an address as argument in begin.

Re: stm32duino library for VL530lox LIDAR sensor

I checked the Adafruit library
https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_VL53L0X
and loaded the only one example: it compiles.

I used a core that has some months, 8 April 2017.

Since there is a thread about VL53L0X I posted there too.

Re: Hackaday - Hackable STM32 based mouse

All the Agilent sensors that I know do all the work and the chip is usually only an USB MCU that simply translate the information received from the chip to the driver using USB. This MCU can receive some commands like dpi change.
There are many Arduino libraries for these Agilent ADNS chips.

Battle Zone! yes, long time ago. Searching in the list I fond that the other game was Space Wars and I recalled another one Star Castle but I remeber it in BW not in colour.

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

Perhaps we can have Asteriods ;-)
I recall also Battle Tank and a two player game I don't remember the name. It was a battle between two battleship in a gravitational field.
