Propeller as eq for pocket amp?
ive recently been side tracked building a headphone amp, basically becuase i needed one and wanted to learn more about analog stuff..
i started thinking i could use the propeller to control some digital pots for gain and volume control, and build a decent little prop sound card using my amp design. then i started wondering what would it take to use the prop as a digital eg for my pocket amp..
i have some pricey 24bit adcs and a 12 bit dac if needed. im not sure if using the props dacs and adcs would be good enough. how posible would it be to use the prop as an eq? ive never written sound code so im not sure what it entails. is this whole idea a huge undertacking or is it as simple as a few passives with an obex object? id really like to make a kill headphone amp but have 0 intrest ib learning to much about coding an eq or any sound processing.

So i cant afford a scope just a fact of life.. i pmed beau about his prop base io scope told him what i was up to and he said that his scope isnt sufficent for my purposes. anyways i got a few microchip mcp3208 adc's on the way. i was reading they should be able to sample up to 100khz. that seems pretty decent.. now i cant write a scope have no where near that kind of skill yet but i was thinking i could use one of these to connect to a prop and load the obex object for ...ok so im finally happy with the propeller board ive been working so dilgently on. right now it doing 104mhz flawless and im sure it will clock alot higher once i order the right crystals. ive also got vga, sound, sd, and keyboard boards built to plug in when i need them. other hardware on coming is an audiophile quality amp, real time clock, a serial port, and interface to an msp430 (waiting on a launchpad, have chips but cant find ne info about building a programmer if neone knows much aboit programming an msp info would help, id like ...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've been attempting to design some circuit boards to use with the AS5055 magnetic encoder chip. One of the boards I hope to make would have the encoder chip and a Propeller on a small enough board to fit inside a servo. I was able to get by with a 2-layer board, but after switching to 4-layers, I found I could fit a few more components onto the board. I decided to try to fit the passives needed for delta-sigma analog to digital conversions. Here's what I came up with. Here's a close up of the delta-sigma section. I added a (very) rough schematic on top ...Is the Quickstart the cheapest Prop board being sold? I think it's $25 from Parallax, more through other vendors. The new FTDI FT231 chip has me thinking about how cheap a Prop board could be... I also noticed yesterday that Digikey has Props for $5 in qty. 100. Haven't gone through the numbers extensively, but it seems that very basic Prop board could be made for ~$10 in parts... $5 Prop $2 FT231X $1 USB connector $1 EEPROM $1 Crystal + passives Add in a dollar or two for the PCB and maybe you have something that can be sold for $15?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 ...So ive been messing with 555 recently in my quest to become more well rounded in electronis, I also have some 74HC4060s I used in a frequency counter project a while back, not sure how much better than a 55 these acually are. So if we were working with a Bs2 and lets say wanted to make PWM to drive a motor, depening on how often we need the motor to change speeds and do certain things this could potentially take up alot of the Bs2s resources with something like a propeller this would probably not be an issue unless we ...I'm a halloween prop builder, and came across the Ardunio Mega last year, and about squealed with excitement. The halloween display I made last year that was controlled by this little godsend was amazing. I'm making a new display this year, and was hoping to have one prop be a little more interactive. Last year, everything was pre-programmed, and ran on routines actived by motion sensor, or me pressing a button on a small control box. I'd like one prop this year to be a little more controlled if I want to take control of it. Specifically, making it talk. I ...Ok so when I first started out I refused to buy a premade propeller board, I studied stuff for a month or two as this is the first electronics design Id ever done. One thing I wanted was the ability to OC as much as possible. With alot of reading about decoupling, and OC threads on here by cluso and sephia I came up with a design which works well it may be overkill though. I run two 3.3v regulators, one is specially for the prop only, the other is for eeprom and everything else. I layed that LDO out ...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 ...www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=TKB150Pampcat=PDA Micro DataPad Mini Keyboard for Palm PDA m100/m105 Series $0.39 If it wasn't for shipping, these are almost free keyboards for a portable prop project... IIRC, the m100 is a serial interface.. I'll let you guys know how I make out with these.. UPS shipping is the same for 1-8 of these.. OBC ???????????????????????? New to the Propeller? Getting started with the Protoboard? - Propeller Cookbook Got an SD card? - PropDOS A Living Propeller FAQ - The Propeller Wiki (Got the Knowledge? Got a Moment? Add something today!)Ok so this board im designing right now is going to be using the MCP23018 which is basically the same as the 23017 except it has an open collector and 5v tolerant pins, yay! Anyways as the design stands right now the board will have 53 I/O pins. This is because I plan on chaining my i2c chips on the same bus as the EEPROM. This got me thinking about some stuff though which im a little hazy about and didn't even realize it till now. First of all the data sheet for the 230xx devices isnt to clear about speed, ...ok here is what I an doing. I assembled a portable PROP unit it has a miniPS2 keyboard built into the top of a simple case and an LCD from a portable DVD player (it accepts NTSC) it has speakers and an NES port, and an SD card. all of this is conifigured to Jeff Ledgers PROTO-board cookbook wich i will upload so you dont have to track it down. with this little setup I have convinced my collage to start a TECH-CLUB based around the PROP and some gear i put together. this SD card has just the right combo of show ...I bought one of these from Radio Shack a week or so back and it says that version F has a speaker for music but there is no example code for the Propeller (nor BS2). I had a few of these in an earlier version when I programmed the SX chip sometime back but wanted to hear the sound capability in this new one for the Propeller. Why is the released datasheet incomplete? Has anyone written any example code for the music tones? I'm a bit surprised no one has brought this up yet - from what I searched on in the forum ...I have been in the last year building up my courage and resources on getting started learning the Propeller. I have sold off a lot of my Stamp stuff, but still have several things. Is it worth keeping Stamps around if I'm moving into the Prop?I just opened the Prop, Prop clip, read the manual through, circuits etc. and read quite a lot, what I could find on these forums. So when the Prop boots up, Cog0 looks for a PC connection first. If it's available, it'll load the program into memory. This mean the EEPROM is optional as long as I have a good PC connection running Propeller Tool right? Is there anything I need to do to terminate those open pins on the Prop then? I'll have more, don't worryOk I love the propeller.. its is awesome for prototyping stuff its capable of doing most anything and makes an all around kick-*** micro when you need some power. I am originally a software guy hoping to maybe get into the kit business. Do to my background and beginner status with electronics, I find it easier to whack another micro into a project to solve a solution sometimes rather than using logic IC's or some descrete solution. Perfect example hooking 8 buttons to one pin, why not throw a 50 cent micro at the problem, or using a cheap micros ...To all you multi rotor guys, I think you are doing great work and I hope to use one in my business soon. I'm starting to see a lot of designs coming on now with shielded props. These would be great for me in my busness of aquatic weed control. Spraying by Rotary UAV in a swamp would be full of hazards for open props, e.g. dead sticks, trees, reeds, vines etc. It seems to me, most of the shielded designs seem to be for looks (UFO's) or for pure prop protection. No one seems to be applying ...I was just looking around at LCD screens and started wondering if it would be possible to use the propeller to render a pdf. Just as a proof of concept maybe vga or ntsc could be used as the display, but in reality using something like a huge sparkfun monochrome lcd would be the more practical application or even an e-ink if one were to find one for a reasonable price with good documentation, Ive never delt with pdf files as far as any codeing projects go so im wondering if someone out there knows a little bit about them and ...Ok so Im still working on this thing its in prototype form. Basically I need to learn KiCad and build a real board and I also have alot of testing to do with different crystal settings. I hit the prop scene after uontroller went out of buisness which is a shame becuase he had some cool stuff. Anyways I just saw a spin studio yesterday and realized in the state my board is in right now it is alot similar as far as using wing type add ons. So there is a connection on my board for 5v and 3.3v, thats ...
