Please find attached V5.04.30 and manual

2018-09-05_212513_Armmite1.3.zip

2018-09-05_212418_Armmite_H7_Manual.pdf

This is the first release that can be considered "complete". The manual explains the differences between the Armmite H7 and the MM2/MM+. Geoff's MM2 and MM+ manuals should be used for everything to do with the MMBasic language and generic peripheral handling.

All bug reports and manual errors should now be posted to this thread. The original multi-page thread should be considered closed. I hope I have captured all of the issues raised in that thread in the manual.

Hi peter

good job!

I have 1 wish concerning the GPS, it would be to have a value of return with each call of internal function, this value would be an error code, for example:
0 = everything is OK
1 = no gps receiver connected
2 = crc error
3 = unrecognized function (especially for print)
4 = com port speed error
etc ..

Hi Peter.

Page 3, rogue 'The':

Manual wrote:

The Armmite H7 is based on the STM32H743ZI. The It has up to fifteen times the program space of the MX series used in the standard Micromite and is many times faster.


Also on Page 3, in the summary it mentions there are four COM ports, but then on the next page, it says the number of serial I/O ports is two - which is it?

Thanks Peter,
I have most of the bits so will be having a play soon.

The document footer is still set as 'Pi-cromite Manual' when you next play with the documentation.

Typo: p13 under USB Keyboard support: OK should be UK.

This is starting to look seriously good. I have got a dev board coming and will have a play. This may well be a contender to replace the PC in some of my systems as a master controller.

One thing I would like to see is support for the camera image as an "object".
<my opinion>
At the moment the only option is to place it on the screen, which is of limited use. It would be far better to capture it to an array and then do with it as you want. This way it would allow for the camera to be used without adulterating whatever is on the screen. There is a serious amount of RAM on this thing so the problem of having to double-up goes away, no? Having it in memory would allow image manipulation, e.g. re-sizing to thumbnail size etc- that would be a nice feature to have so I could have a section of the screen with the image.
</my opinion>

Thanks for your efforts Peter. Looking forward to my H7 arriving

Hi peter

I am testing Sensor Fusion function and I have some problems

I use a SparkFun card MPU 9250
MPU 9250 V2.0

1 - what pin is use for int?
2 - what is I2c adress (68h or 69h)
3 - Have-you an "Option" function like
OPTION SENSF 6050(or 9250), adr, intpin, [,target]

my card work correctly whith arduino but not with h7, but it seems that I have an error connection on I2C bus

after having corrected my error on the I2C connection (I had stayed with the old wiring), the function "sensorfusion" seems to work correctly with mpu9250 v2.0 and int on pin 50. I tested with the program "compass"
But I remain with my request to have a specific option for this type of sensor

other point
I tested the card with IR and new wiring :-), it's good

There are many many i2c devices that could be supported directly. You want MPU-9250. Others would want BMA280, etc. The support for all these devices can be done easily in Basic. Geoff has always limited specific device support to those where performance or timing issues make it impossible to code in Basic. I don't intend to deviate from this. So I have added WS2812 and OV7670 which simply cannot be coded in Basic but won't be adding I2C devices which can - sorry

This is using the version 1.0 daughter board and the latest firmware.

I have had good results with a ILI9341 display with touch and the SD card working as expected.
I decided to try a SSD1963 4 inch display and are having problems with the SD card.
With the display and touch working OK, I get SDcard not present.

I tried disconnecting the display's SD card pins and used an external module. Same problem.
I disconnected the touch pins as well and still no SDcard (external unit)
I removed the display from the backboard and the external SDcard worked.
I plugged the display in but did not configure it. The external SD card worked.
I enabled the LCD driver (still with the touch and display SD disconnected) and the SDcard stopped working.

I have gone back to the 2.4 inch ILI9341 display for now.

Jim
