With the routines of J.P. Duval made also the Roll working on the display. And very fast. Instead of a black and red line, like on the compass, one single black line is drawn. And when a new reading has to be displayed, the old one is overwritten by a white line and a new one is drawn. Nothing fancy yet, just a line and the numbers at the bottom.
From the information coming from the Arduino Mega 9DOF Bluetooth made a compass on its Nokia 6100 EPSON and PHILIPS display. Used some fine routines from a clock made by J.P. Duval. Found it as an Application Note in the Bascom-AVR forum. Not a lot had to be changed to have it work as a compass. Made a splash screen, and a background picture with N/O/Z/W on it. It is working perfectly. Still all information from the 9DOF software is sent to the bluetooth module so you can combine this compass with the information in the Phython screen. Our next step is a Pitch and Roll display.
Nokia 6100 (Epson) display working on the Arduino Mega 9DOF Bluetooth. 132 x 132 pixels. We had to make a small DC-DC step-up converter to make 9.5 volts from the Arduino 5 volts. First a test with a MC34063 but later a better result with a MAX202.
A few month back have done some work on AVR and Vinculum VNC-1LA on the AVR Ethernet I/O board. Having the VDIP1 USB Host Controller still arround, I have searched the Internet for a way to connect it to the Arduino.
Makes use of a NewSoftSerial library with CTS and RTS. Going to do some benchmark test with lots of data.
