DUINOMITE-TBA

Ken Segler again had nice idea for T-shaped breadboard adapter which brings all DuinoMite GPIOs in easy to access form to breadboard + adds +5V/GND bus on top and +3.3V/GND bus on bottom of the breadboard – small and elegant solution for all who want to experiment with DuinoMite / MaxiMite.

This is our first prototype, we will have stock of this board around end of February.

For all retro computer Game lovers there is good news, now there is easy way to connect Wii-nunchuk to DuinoMite! For this purposes two adapters were built:

one is with UEXT connector so connects directly to the DuinoMite UEXT connector, the other is with PIC-ICSP connector layout and could be wired with 6 pin ICSP cable to DuinoMite PIC programming ICSP connector – as DuinoMite uses bootloader for new firmware upgrades the ICSP connector is used just once when the bootloader is programmed then stays with no use, so interfacing the Wii-nunchuk is good use for the ICSP.

Wii-nunchuk offers: X-Y Joystick and 3-Axes accelerometer + 2 Buttons and works with I2C.

In this thread on TBS forum you can download ready to use Wii-nunchuk BASIC code which is tested to work just fine with the UEXT connector, to work with ICSP connector new soft-emulated I2C communication should be implemented in the firmware.
