Pi Zero ethernet

A Pi zero arrived here the other day so I plugged in an sd card from a Pi3 (originally a PiB+ sd with with updates till it worked in the pi3) and a WiFi dongle and SSH from my PC worked straight up. Emboldened by this early success I thought I'd try ethernet via http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/3814753341...

Re: New pigpio Python module

Absolutely right, some weird aliasing effect on the digital CRO triggering, tried an old analog oscilloscope & it vanished like the phantom it was. Feeding that rock solid 10kHz pwm into a 100k/100nf RC now for some smoothing makes for a nice agile control loop, very nice. Thnx for the hand holding ...

Re: New pigpio Python module

I tried just ramping the 10kHz duty cycle in steps of 40 for starters Joan but the CRO trace is all broken up, 30-40ms of 10kHz separated by similar intervals of gpio18 at 3.3v. Is this normal? I thought DMA based pwm ensured a steady stream uninterrupted by the OS like the software based versions?

Re: New pigpio Python module

So 25000 steps at 10kHz. Does that mean my PID loop should increment the duty cycle in blocks of 40 between 0 & 1000000?

Code: Select all

dc=dc+40
pi.hardware_PWM(18, 10000, dc)

Re: New pigpio Python module

thnx Joan, my sin was not using pi.hardware_PWM(18, 0, 0). I was forcing gpio18 low with a GPIO.output to stop the pwm & I couldn't restart pwm by rerunning the program because I didn't use pi.hardware_PWM(18, 0, 0) to end the previous instance.

Re: Raspbian Dist-upgrade bricks rpi3

The blinking light mention in the 1st post of this thread caught my eye. On my previous PIs the wheezy sd card showed little or no activity on the green led when no programs were running but the same card in the PI3 pulses the green led at ~2Hz. How could I find out what is causing this?

Re: B+ and max_usb_current

I verified that max_usb_current=1 in the /boot/config.txt file does indeed take the mosfet pin hi. But what this is really all about is the power supply you're using. Rule No. 1, never believe a current rating printed on a 5v plugpack. I hooked a 10 ohm rheostat across one of the usb outputs & put a...

Nah not a power supply problem, I've jigged it so the red power light doesn't flicker. Just out of my depth I think, heaps harder than WiFi. Mr. Engman you need to bring your deft hand to this me thinks!

Thnx for the links but I've tried then already. Sakis terminates early when it gets an error response to a pin request & wvdial connects OK but hangs after the 2nd ary DNS is issued. I was hoping I could maybe get somewhere with Huawei's HiLink.
