Prop to Prop problem
I am very new to the Propeller, so newbie issues may be obvious here. I am trying to get a simple communication between two Propellers (a Propeller Demo Board and a PE Kit). I am using the FullDuplex Serial object to send a series of bytes from one Prop to the other and display using the Parallax Serial Terminal object. I’ve succeeded in most respects, but I’m having a frustrating time figuring out some extraneous (and or dropped) characters at the receiving Prop. My suspicion was improper buffering or timing. I’ve tried all kinds of insertion of delays on the sending and receiving sides to remedy the issue, but those attempts make the situation worse. The Transtest.spin and Rectest2.spin listings are attached. What I get on the Parallax Serial Terminal display are a sequence of Hello! lines and random lello! or Hello1 as shown below. Any hints or clues as to what I am missing are greatly appreciated.

Hey, I've been using the Propeller Tool for a while now; I suppose about two years. I always opened up the serial communicator, but not really knowing what it was for. I knew I could reset the Prop from the PC, but that was it. I see now that there is a serial communications object here for comm between the Prop and the serial terminal in the Prop Tool. Could this be used for debugging?I have just received the Emic 2 bd and have it connected to a prop chip P6 P7. The Emic 2 Demo loads and plays fine. I have the Parallax Serial Term. software loaded in my bench computer. com 3, 9600 baud. I loaded the serial software in the prop but I cannot get the prop/Emic 2 to talk to the terminal program. I never get the ":". All suggestions are welcome. I am a "new commer" to the Prop. chip/Emic 2/parallax Terminal software so it is most likely something I am missing!I have a little project where I want the UNO board to send commands to a Prop shield. The Prop shield will actually be my main board/controller for my robot. I only what the UNO to send commands to the Prop(some kind of string of data). Basically I can write a simple C program and the Prop does all the work. I'm thinking SPI object or some other serial object is the way to get these to to talk. I really haven't seen anything like this before. I think this is the way to go? If anyone knows of some projects that are similar if ...I am fairly new to propeller programing so excuse me if these questions seem simple. I wrote a program that utilizes the simple serial library object for communicating between two propellers. I can transmit a single byte but am having a difficult time getting multiple different bytes sent. I am sort of at a loss as where to start with sending more then one value serially. My project is a tethered underwater ROV and I am trying to communicate a large number of different values down to the machine from the surface for motor control, lights, etc. If someone has an ...Hello hoping someone on here can help me. I have an old BPI-216 serial LCD that I used to use for Stamp projects and now I want to use for a Propeller project. But I cant seem to get it to work with the Propeller at all. The LCD works fine with my Stamps and in its test mode. I downloaded the code from column #134 of Nuts amp Volts of BASIC Stamps, featuring Propeller Projects "Spin Baby Spin" which contains a demo for the BPI-216 with a custom object for it. Everything Ive read about the Propeller indicates that ...Ok so I finally got all my stuff in the mail, I built a simple power regulator circut on some pref board then followed the simple propeller schematics on in the prop manual, have not added a crystal yet though. When I hit f7 spin tool says no propeller chip found on com 3, but when i use the serial terminal and type RX, and TX both light up, when i hit my reset switch RX, flashes, when I hold the reset button as I type only TX will flash and RX stays dead until I let go of the reset. ...With the beta of Propeller GCC, and in the announcement of the beta of Propeller GCC the mention of 'all the development will be fed into Propeller II', I have some questions about the future that perhaps someone from Parallax can answer. I apologize in advance if this is answered somewhere else, but I couldn't find it. - With the advent of GCC for the Propeller, will further development continue on SPIN for the propeller, and more importantly will Propeller 2 be a GCC / Assembler only chip. Is SPIN going to continue on to the next generation of chip? ...Ok, beta testers... I have run this DEMO and tested over 100 Billion data Bits with no Transmission Errors over the distance of 10 feet from one Propeller to another Propeller. Here is a beta release before I place it in the object exchange.This is my short story, . . . I have been Spinning Propeller programs for several years, but still consider myself a Noobe. I have several Prop hardware sets, and they are all configured differently, for different projects. But, it have been a "Pain in the Butt" to continually adjust SPIN programs when moving programs between my hardware sets. Or, trying to use DEMO programs from the OBEX. Or, to configure for DEBUG output to go to another display. A big problem is that each my hardware configurations uses different (or multiple) Display devices: - Serial - VGA - Parallel LCD - I2C ...Hello, The problem I want to address: I want to build a robot that will run 5 Propellers in parallel. Each Propeller has a specific mandate (and many concurrent tasks are done by each propellers). Prop. 1- Control motors to move the robot Prop. 2- Power management Prop. 3- Image analysis (1 camera) Prop. 4- Sensors data analysis (distance, ...) Prop. 5- General tasks + robot mission Propeller should be able to communicate directly with any other Propeller at any time. Actually, I need (would like) to create a "fully connected network of Propellers". I think I2C is probably the ...Hello, I have read through various post on people's propeller chip's having this same problem. However none seemed to solve the problem. I believe I have installed the correct driver from FTDI (since I installed that first on the machine and then plugged in the prop and then added a 9V bat.). My first attempt I tried multiple times without success then one time upon transferring ir_oscope.spin (the program I had been trying) it worked, however the terminal did not load (but that is a different problem, I may have misread the code and really props do not have a debug ...I have started a project that requires a lot of nodes talking to a few parallax propellers. Do to cost reasons I can't use propellers for everything so I was trying to find a cheaper controller for the nodes. I was thinking of using the: PIC16F616T-I/SL The chip is only $0.9159 each which would be a great price if it will do what I need. I want to connect a SHT10, a 0 to 5V analog input, 2 digital inputs,1 digital output, and some kind of serial communication back to a prop(1 to 3 wire less wires is better as it means more ...Page 101 of the PEK labs book (v 1.2) suggests removing the PropPlug if using it with the 40-pin DIP version, or commenting out the calls in the code if using the Propstick USB. Both actions are to prevent the Propeller from being reset by the USB to serial converter when code tries to send messages to a PC that is not connected to the Prop. I am putting the polish on a project, and pondering what to do with all of the calls to Parallax Serial Terminal when the Propeller is running alone - not connected to my PC. ...I have a sensor that has an analog output and some Propeller code that uses sigma delta analog conversion to interface with it. I want to port the code to the Prop Boe and use its on-board ADC instead. If this was Spin code I could do it pretty easily, but the original code is in PASM, which I've been avoiding for a while now. I used to program in assembler back in the 80's, so I bit the bullet and read through the code. I found it relatively straight forward with a few bits I was clueless on. I think ...OK, So I am finally going to make the jump from PBasic and BS2's to Spin and the Propeller. I have not received my prop stuff yet but I was wondering if there are any sample programs that can be coded and run without a prop just so I can get my feet wet.I'm designing a drop-in replacement for the iSobot controller board, and would like to know if there's much interest in such a beast. The cost of getting boards made can be lowered if more people are interested in getting one. The board will support: LQFP-44 Propeller MCU 5 MHz crystal 32 kb serial EEPROM H48C 3-axis accelerometer module (Parallax) HM55B compass module (Parallax) 3.3V regulator for MCU, modules and servo electronics header for Prop Plug (Parallax USB-serial interface) header for radio module (haven't decided yet, thinking EB301 bluetooth module from A7 Engineering) connectors for iSobot's LEDs, microphone and speaker Unused ports of the Prop will be brought out to either a ...I am very new at prop programming. I have created a program the will read the Parallax "5 position switch" and display the switch positions on a 2 X 16 Parallax LCD.(5PositionSwitch_LCD.spin) I ultimately want to control a servo with the switch.I found a Servo control object in the OBEX library called"Single Servo Spin". I have tried to incorporated it into my existing program but am not having luck. The program will compile and load into RAM but the LCD never initializes and no response from the switch or the servo. If someone could look at my programs and give me ...Hello, i have a Propeller Demo Board and 2 parallax continuous servos and a parallax ultrasonic range finder. i am trying to make an object avoidance bot in spin, however i cant find any code to help me at this time. i have code to operate the servos and a code to operate the ping sensor. what i need is a spin code that has 2 continuous servos a ping sensor from parallax all controlled by the Propeller Demo Board. here is the bot. i dont care if the code is in spin, i will use c,12block, or any code ...I have been looking at a thread in the "Prop GCC Beta" forum and apparently the comment I am going to make would be better put here. My comment is to Parallax and to anybody involved with "SimpleIDE". Even though I am just a hobbiest and haven't purchased a quantity of Propeller chips, I completely understand the need to include C/C++ and I can kind of understand why it was not included with the Propeller 1 to begin with though it should have been from a business standpoint. As the Propeller is a unique chip and you are offering it thru ...I did a search on digital POT's for the propeller chip but only found a driver for a MCP4141 which is acting a little weird( see note 1). Also there is mention of pull up resistor on the CS pin and I don't see it being used with any other micro, with that chip. Is it required for SPI? I do remember pull-ups being used on some SPI sd cards. I have to control a set of LED lights with 0 to 5VDC and I'll keep experimenting with the MCP4141 for now but would like other options in case I ...
