Thanks, Jostein.

Can anybody tell me (or link me) what the Robostix has in its as-shipped runtime image? Or how I would find out for my specific board? The Verdex Pro comes with a program named i2c that can read and write any address in the i2c space. Is this the Verdex / OE equivalent to what is called i2c-io in the gumstix.orgbuildroot system pages? Can I use it to read the ADC pins? I really need to get a proof-of-concept demo going soonest, before going through the agony of learning how to code and load and run AVR programs.

Thanks all,

I haven't tried it myself, but I believe that to get values from the AD you will need to go through the ATmega128 on the Robostix. The AD-converters are connected directly to the ATmega128, and you could write a small program for the ATmega that reads AD-values and sends them to your Gumstix using IC.

Hi,

Is there a way from a OTS board pair to read from the Robostix A2D ports? A stand-alone program running on the Verdex pro? Something like i2c-io, although for that I don't know if it is OE compatible, it's not in the delivered image, and the instructions for getting it were on gumstix.org, not .net, nor have I found usage instructions for it. Yet.



Thanks,
