PlatformIO/Arcada problem

by TheObstacle on Thu Dec 09, 2021 12:00 am

I'm trying to use PlatformIO to get code that uses Arcada up and running on a Pybadge M4 Express and/or a PyGamer M4 Express (I have one of each).

On both devices, I can load python files, but when I try to run Arduino code that uses Arcada, it seems to hang at the call to arcada.displayBegin() (any serial output after that point never happens).

I can reproduce the issue with the arcada_pygamer_test.ino and arcada_pybadge_test.ino sketches from the https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Arcada repository, with just a minimal platformio.ini added to specify board/libraries/etc..

I'm using PlatformIO hosted in Visual Studio Code running on Mac OS X Big Sur.

Any suggestions for debugging this issue? I'm not even sure where to start.

Thanks,
TheObstacle
