Re: [DISCUSSION] Alternative Screen Sizes

-snips-. The 3.5" LCD of choice that i used in projects, was the PD035VX2. With driver board they're admittedly a bit expensive, at $80+ from china. they are 3.5" 640x480 resolution. Which is the best res i could find for a 3.5" that could support hdmi/vga etc. i used one inside a gameboy with a ra...

Re: [DISCUSSION] Fans/Heatsinks/CPU Cooling Mods

Here's what i did for my cooling. http://i.imgur.com/cio6DH2.jpg *PS: the yellow stuff on the paper towel is flux i wiped off (with alcohol) after some SMD work.* I removed the shroud, used a small 1cm tall heatsink with a small copper riser under it to lift it above the components, using high end P...

Re: A bunch of questions regarding the LP

Did fiddle with the bios a little, i spammed DEL, since that's kind of the go-to bios key, i just had to use a different keyboard and start spamming it quicker. Did see some bios options, played with a few, no negative side effects from that anyways. Only problems i'm having aren't the LP's fault. T...

Re: Message when turn on my LP??

When you power up your LP, spam F8 or F11 as fast as you can. F11 for recovery menu, and F8 for other options such as safe mode. It almost sounds like you have a problem with your windows 10 installation. (may require you to reinstall) If you do need to reinstall windows 10.. here's how http://www.l...

Re: lattepanda and relay problem

Not sure if I understand correctly, but i may have a workaround. Most relays have 5 pins (this workaround only applies to the 5 pin, not the 4 pin). 2 for activating the relay, and 3 poles for the switch.... http://www.phidgets.com/wiki/images/1/1d/3051_1_Relay_Diagram.jpg You may have it so it goes...

Re: Arduino midi sketch

You can treat it like any other arduino leonardo for the most part. So instead of looking for the sketch on the LP forums, you'd be better off searching the arduino forums. Just in the arduino software (upgrade it to latest), set the chip to the leonardo which should be on com 3. (is for me anyways)...

Re: Battery for LP

Alrighty, since i did robotics, i can tell you now.. you may need to use something like a 5 amp BEC or uBEC (often used for RC airplanes and helicopters) as your switching regulator. those motors and servos under load will probably pull quite a bit of amperage. Once you know how much your DC motors ...

I'm Angie, AKA LazyBunny, I'm from the USA. I'm in between professional and hobbyist, since for me they are a bit mixed together. Electronics engineer, though i mostly focus on repairs and hand soldering stuff. I've always believed it's better to repair instead of replace when possible. Though i do ...

Re: Battery for LP

Yeah that should work, you should get 2 and a half hours out of it. Maybe more if the software isn't under heavy load, maybe less if you have a lot of other stuff attached. I don't know what 'product' you're making this for, but that looks like a better choice than the 6v battery.
