    Agreed! I got some 0.3mm "60/40" for SMD work - which turned out to be 62/37 (and what was the other 1%??) - horrid stuff. Doesn't flow nicely, doesn't set shiny or smooth, all the joints made with...

    The Z568M nixie tubes are gorgeous! Would love to make a clock out of those and it'd look just the part sitting on top of a 1960s valve shortwave radio I restored last year, but the piggy bank needs...

    Really sad news. The world is a little less better off with him gone. Could say a lot more on the subject, but will just leave it at that. Farewell, Aussie50, thanks for the laughs.

    Superannuation question

    Really simple superannuation question, and just want to confirm I've understood the situation correctly.
    Hypothetical: $100,000 in super account. $50,000 death or total permanent disabled benefit. ...

    The pinout is no problem, it is more what data is spat out of the interface without any prompting / interrogation that I'm wondering about. Ah well, I just bought a cheap OBDii to USB interface,...
  9. OBDii - what data is on the bus by default?

    Don't have a OBD scanner / sniffer yet, so don't have any practical experience. Yet.
    I know PIDs can be sent to the CAN to request certain data for diagnostic purposes, but what data is spewed out...

    The watch is a Marathon PRF-46374G, made for US military use, so no broad arrow on this. This is the 'sterile' version that doesn't have "US Government" on the face. Don't think Commonwealth armed...

    Thanks. I was hopeful it might have been a matter of getting an existing Bluetooth audio driver and repointing it to the PID/VID of the ex-Fitbit dongle and going from there. Off to eBay it is then!

    The better half bought me a pair of Bluetooth wireless headphones for Christmas. Would be nice to use them with the desktop PC, which doesn't have Bluetooth built in.

  19. Raw bitmap image editing software for TFT LCD Arduino displays

    Can anyone recommend some PC software (preferably free / donate / share) that can create & edit raw bitmaps in RGB565 (16 bit colour) format, and most importantly can save the bitmap in vertical...
  20. Can reading a code protected PIC erase it?

    Been having some adventures in PIC chip copying, only with a very small 12F510, and found something odd. The datasheet says that the first 64 locations and the last location (internal clock...

    Just worked out what is going on. Code protection is set, but the first 96 bytes are readable even with code protection set (as per datasheet), which tricked me into thinking the entire chip was...
  22. Copy of PIC chip fails... timing issue?

    I'm trying to copy a PIC chip (a DIP8 12F510, not embedded in anything) and have read the source PIC with a Pickit3 and MPLAB. I've then written it to new PIC chips (SMD SOIC this time), and they...
  23. The problem for me isn't the physical connection...

    The problem for me isn't the physical connection - this is a serial NAND flash chip with only 8 widely spaced pins. The issue is that due to it's WSON form factor where the solder pads extend quite...

    No, never thought about that, what a good idea! I'll have to look into it, thanks for the hint.

    Didn't know that, but in any case the software for the little CH341a programmer doesn't have those options. It might select them in the background when you select the specific chip type to program...
