Re: Windows activation

Please post a link to a Win10 SBC that includes a Win10 license for 100 euros. I have looked and have not found anything even close to that price. There is supposed to be a Raspberry Pi coming out with Win10 IoT for free but that is not the real/full Win10.

Re: COM port disappears after multiple Arduino sketch loads

I have experienced this problem of the Arduino COM port disappearing after a while. Then yesterday it would disappear every time I tried to upload a sketch. I wondered if it was a power problem as writing FLASH memory requires more power than reading it. I bought the power adapter from DR Robot that...

Re: [DEFECTIVE] 4G/64G won't boot, red light blinking, runs

Writing to any sort of FLASH requires much more power than reading. On some microcontroller development boards I have used that were USB power having insufficient power to program the board is a common problem. My suspicion is that a lot of people have tried to use some cell phone charger they had i...

Re: Lattepanda turns off

What is the size of the power wires in your USB cable? Most cheaper USB cables have 28AWG or smaller wires which are inadequate for more than a few hundred mill-amps. You can get better USB cables with 24AWG power wires which are better but you still need to use a very short USB cable (no more than ...

Using Remote Desktop with LP

I found a way to be able to use Remote Desktop with the LattePanda. The Win10 license key I have is for Win10 Home which will not let you use Remote Desktop to connect to it. (I dislike VNC.) I found: https://github.com/stascorp/rdpwrap/releases . Which acts as a shim and enables remoting into the P...

Programming Arduino with Visual Studio

In case anyone is not aware you can download this plug-in for Visual Studio which lets you program the Arduino with Visual Studio rather than the Arduino IDE. http://www.visualmicro.com/ I had some problems at first getting it to find the Arduino which may have been related to how Windows was enumer...

Re: Source for built in Arduino code

Never mind. I just realized that 'firmata' was a standard arduino/uc protocol. I found the project page on github.

Source for built in Arduino code

The LattePanda ships with code on the Arduino that lets you communicate via serial port with the LattePanda.Firmata library (from Visual Studio). I was looking for the source code for the Arduino 'sketch' but can't seem to locate it. I have a plug-in developed for Mach 4 that uses a simple serial pr...

Re: LattaPanda cannot bootup completely

Read the instructions. After the board initializes (blue LED) you must press the power button for 1 second to turn it on. after you press the power button you will see a red LED and it will take 5-10 seconds before you see anything from HDMI port which can seem odd, i.e. you re not sure if it is pow...
