I milled three of Neil's boards – temperature, the step response, and sound. I combined the three PNG's onto one 2” x 3” copper board,the traces and interiors can be found here.
stuffing! Architecture shop was missing a 0.1 uF capacitor, so I'll
have to find that in the CBA shop. All three boards use the TINY 45V
microcontroller, FTDI 6-pin, resistors and capacitors which we have
used previously. New additions: the temperature (NTC) sensor, an
additional header for the step response, and a microphone for
Thank you to Theodora, once again, for help with Terminal! I have no experience with programming or python, so I just tried to run Neil's scripts, and understand the code.
make hex file
2. program fuses, program usb-tiny
3. run the python file; python file contains the visualization program – it is installed on OS X, but I was missing the serial library.
4. go to the python 2.6 site, download the .gz file, unarchive, and place in a known directory (desktop, documents, etc.)
- in a new terminal window, locate this directory, and run the following in order to install the serial port
5. run the python file: the first locates the serial port; after typing the second, press TAB, this will find and write the correct serial port into the command
6. python visualization should appear!
response: high + low
temperature: sensor brought to a maximum, placed next to window to cool down and captured every 5 seconds from minimum measurement; then brought back into room and captured every 5 seconds as it acclimated to room temperature.
