Re: A DIY-GIMX Help - adapter not enumerating?

It should be and the one that isn't was stepped down.
I can put a scope on the lines if you wish but I get the feeling something else may be up...

Re: A DIY-GIMX Help - adapter not enumerating?

Okay. Thanks for clarifying that.

For some reason I am still getting no UART comms though even when running at 5v..ideas?

Re: A DIY-GIMX Help - adapter not enumerating?

I also pulled out my multimeter..(it's -20 outside and it was in the car) and verified the micro is definitely being fed 5v now. So my board is running at 5v. I have tried two different USB UARTs, an ftdi 232r with and without a voltage divider on the RX and another cheap one I use with my car's ecu...

Re: A DIY-GIMX Help - adapter not enumerating?

I just attempted to, and successfully flashed the firmware using the gimx app alone instead of from the command-line w/avrdude. Seems like it basically did the same thing but figured it was worth a shot..

No change.. :(

Re: A DIY-GIMX Help - adapter not enumerating?

Okay.. So I have applied 5v directly to the output pin of the onboard 3v3 reg. Disabling the internal reg by pulling the enable pin down does disconnect usb power. Was able to hit bootloader button and program it at 5v even.. Still see no response via USB when plugging in (not detected as anything a...

Re: A DIY-GIMX Help - adapter not enumerating?

When the adapter is flashed with the firmware and then plugged into anything but before GIMX app connects via UART or anything - will that host device see any type of USB device? I would guess that it should see whatever device I flashed firmware for and then gimx connects and feeds the data to make...

Re: A DIY-GIMX Help - adapter not enumerating?

Without touching my soldering iron or a exacto..it seems as though I have bypassed the onboard vreg. Schematic appears to show the 3v3 pin on the breakout board is connected to the micro. Didn't see any diodes. Feeding 5v from an Arduino Mega (just whatever I happened to have within reach that has a...

Re: A DIY-GIMX Help - adapter not enumerating?

Looks like the onboard reg is 3v3 only. Was hoping it might have been configurable :)

Just a bit apprehensive about using usb 5v direct.

Re: A DIY-GIMX Help - adapter not enumerating?

There is an enable pin for the 3v3 regulator. Whether this bypasses it to the micro or just disables the 3ve pin, I don't know yet but would be nice if I could just pull down a pin and go.. Otherwise, I was thinking to just bypass the regulator. Power comes from 5v usb anyway. Couple of nicks and a ...

Re: A DIY-GIMX Help - adapter not enumerating?

The firmware sets the clock to 16MHz. From datasheet this requires power supply to be 5V. From the specs you provided your board has a 3.3V power supply. This is not going to work and there is no way to change power supply voltage without hardware modification. Marlo, thank you - that was the exact...
