  1. THANK YOU!!! You rock! I'll let you know how it goes. -G
  2. LCDs expects the 4 MSBs to be transferred followed by the 4 LSBs. Can the AD2 support this type of communication? The AD2 would have to store the 4 MSBs and concatenate them with the 4 LSBs once received to make 8 bits LiquidCrystal object) which expects the 4 MSBs to be transferred followed by the 4 LSBs.which it would then display as ASCII.
  3. In one of the test, I used Clock and Enable in the bus settings. That did not work. In the configuration above, 0,1 and 2 are just Signal. Does it matter which wire they are plugged into?
  4. Thanks JColvin, I was going off of the comment above. I am confused too...LOL When I did the same experiment using serial.print, I was able to see the data (the text string) in the data display of WaveForms. In this experiment, to the LCD, I have "Analog Discovery 2, Learn, Experiment, Work!" as the data. I do not see any data... just control. The original setup was RS, EN, DP4, etc. That was not working. I noticed in the CPP that RW is in the mix too (as it is above). So I added RW. I'll change it back and see what changes. You said. "I do not think there is
  5. Hey guys, any thoughts on this? Is it possible to capture that actual data? What am I missing? JohnnyG
  6. @attila I am not sure if I got it setup right or not but it seems to follow along with the manual. I get a lot of control but never data, am I expecting too much? The ino is simple. #include <LiquidCrystal.h> // RS - on Arduino pin 12 AD2 pin 0 // RW - on Arduino pin 11 AD2 pin 1 // EN - on Arduino pin 10 AD2 pin 2 // DP4 - on Arduino pin 9 AD2 pin 3 // DP5 - on Arduino pin 8 AD2 pin 4 // DP6 - on Arduino pin 7 AD2 pin 5 // DP7 - on Arduino pin 6 AD2 pin 6 LiquidCrystal lcd(12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6); void setup() { lcd.begin(16,2); } void loop
  7. Thanks, I tried bus... I guess I did not have the setting right. I'll look at the datasheet and see if I can figure it out. While the rest of the world is going crazy because they are stuck at home I got the AD2 to keep me sane... -G
  8. I've been trying to learn how to use the AD2 Logic Analyser. I got it to work with Serial.println("Hello world!"). I've learned that the Base: selection is critical to capturing the data. If you get it wrong, you get Framing Errors and the wrong characters. Now I am trying to use the Logic Analyser with an Arduino Uno running a clock/date ino that displays on a 16x2 LCD. I do not have the LCD connected, but when I wrote the program it was and it worked perfectly. I have also tried an ino that displays Hello World on the top line of the LCD. My connection is described below. I h
  9. I am following along with the Analog Discovery Tutorials: Scope 2: Triggered Acquisition tutorial. I have a very similar but not exact breadboard setup. 4V, 220 resistor, red LED. W1 is setup as the screen below shows, the W1 wire is on one end of the resistor, GND is on the far end of the LED. 1+ is on the same end of the resistor as W1 and 1- is on the other leg of the resistor. 2+ is on the same leg as 1-, and 2- is on the same leg of the LED as GND (hopefully this makes sense, if not, look at the video.) I am using a sign wave but the triangle gives similar results. I am trying t
  10. Good morning @Bianca! Thanks, that makes sense. I am watching an older video "Analog Discovery Tutorials: Scope 2: Triggered Acquisition" That video shows the older version of the software. In one part, they show "load defaults" for the scope. Is that a feature in the new software? Thanks again!!! John BTW: Are you really in Romania?
  11. The Ultimate Package came with a Breadboard Adapter for AD. The package contained the adapter and a small solderless breadboard. I am trying to figure out a particle application for the adapter? Are we supposed to solder components and wires to the board or does the adapter and the solderless breadboard somehow work together? Thanks in advanced, JohnnyG
  12. The first time I ran into that, I pulled out a few hairs. Give it another try. When you get that message, go to your system preferences, security & privacy. You should see a message about allowing the software to install. I am new to the AD2 and Waveform.... it is AWESOME!!! Good luck. JohnnyG
