Re: Question about pinouts on FX Mini Sound Board

... figured the volume was just because it was smaller. That answers that question. As for the piggy back. So there really should be no reason I can't piggyback the amp? I plan to test wiring on a breadboard first using jumpers, but in final assembly, I am trying to keep everything as compact as possible.

Re: piggyback power off the cell phone?

USB-C is even worse. The official line is that USB-C "enables many technologies while mandating few". It allows for 'alternate modes' that are mutually incompatible and can only be distinguished by the markings printed on the terminators. All USB-C cables have to contain an IC that identif...

Re: piggyback power off the cell phone?

It depends on the cell phone.

USB-OTG can power external devices, but plain USB can’t. They both use the same micro-B connector though, so it’s hard to tell them apart visually.

more like a HAT for a cell phone; something that could attach to a case. reducing strain would definitely be a priority.

Re: piggyback power off the cell phone?

Great, thanks, it's uncommon but always welcome to see people who had trouble on forums giving updates once the problem's solved.

Re: piggyback power off the cell phone?

UPDATE Solved my own question: YES this is possible using an OTG cable: I snagged a 0.65' USB C <=> Micro USB on Amazon for <$5, and it works great. The only problem now is that it's a bit more cord than I want, making it a little unwieldy, and I don't like putting strain on the notoriously (in gen...

piggyback power off the cell phone?

does anyone know if it's possible to power a CPX using the USB jack on a cell phone?

I have a little project that would work best if the CPX could be something of a cell dongle.

5" HD LCD w/HDMI

... through creating a sort of "adapter" board to go from the USB 5v to the 12v that the display needs (amperage is very low). My idea is to piggyback the power for the display onto the USB touchscreen connector. My question is why are there not any displays like this already out? There are ...

Re: Is it possible to run C/C++ commands directly using John

That sounds more like a matter of making multiple boards communicate with the same central node. There are lots of different ways to do that.

For starters, do you want to use a wired connection between the central device and the ESP8266s, or piggyback it onto the Wifi?

Re: Change shunt resistor on INA219?

... solder joints at both ends of the resistor, and they'll melt at the same time. Then you can just pull the resistor off with the wire. You can also piggyback a new 0.01 Ohm resistor directly on top of the existing 0.1 resistor. The catch is that you'll end up with the parallel resistance of the ...

Re: Play spaceship control panel

For role-playing, or other such stuff, you might want to see who has done things in the escape room world, and piggyback on that. For example, setting a code/combo lock based on logic. There might be some open source stuff out there. As far as sensors/actuators go, the sky is ...
