DEDuino – V.1.2.0

DEDuino version 1.2.0 is finally here.
The main change is the switch to i2c protocol to drive the lights. However several other change has also has been implemented.
To support the new features, a new software version has been released. please note that this version is not backwards compatible with the old code. and vice versa, DEDuino 1.2.0 can only work with app version and up. please note that DEDuino software will not automaticly update major version – so current devices should not be effected.

Standalone Cougar TQS (Throttle) – Part III

In the last two posts we worked with the hardware and basic code for debugging. In this post we will go over the basic changes done in the actual code.

Everything is already available in the download page.
You can browse the code and download all the stuff you need (including a pre-compiled Hex, ready to be uploaded to your device – incl. a simple script to help with it for those of you who only want it to work :))

Here is a small clip showing how it looks in windows.

Now let’s dig into some technical stuff (only if you want to) 🙂

DEDuino – V1.1.4

Yet another patch for the code.
this release has focused on two things.
1. Making the code easier to handle for the novice.
2. Bringing the performance of the Uno back to acceptable level.

To achieve this, a new “config.h” file was created, bringing together all the important settings and features (I’ve even tried to get everything properly documented…).

Please note that the default is now “Arduino Micro” – as it is in my opinion that minimum required board (due to the Uno Memory constraints). If you with to use an Uno (or a Mega as some are doing – please make sure to select the proper option)

To get the performance back to the uno the code now intentionally disabling RealFFI and Bezel options (regardless of what “config.h” says). This can be overridden via the “fuelflow.h” file – but please note there is a performance impact.
As always, links for the download are at the download page.

Happy flying!

DEDuino – v1.1.1

Second quick patch for the DEDuino project.

Following input and assistance from “Moon” and “AiRdAncE” the VP community, I’ve been pointed to the real FFI font, “MilSpec 35588“.

I’ve adjusted size and removed unneeded chars to create a new custom FFI font pretty much in the correct size to match a real face plate. Once I have one fabricated, I’ll adjust the font some more – but for now that is good enough IMHO

As always, the code is available on github .

Thank you guys for making this project even better

DEDuino – Release Post

The day is finally here!

I’ve decided to release the project with all the issues I’ve found and could not fix – in hope that someone will be able to look at the code and schematics and help me hunt down the issues.

You can download the code from the Download Page 

And also available on github:

I hope this initial release would be a stepping stone for things to come! thank you all!
