Feather JoyWing with Feather NRF52 locking up

by TROFF on Sat Oct 23, 2021 1:49 pm

Hi I tested this on two Feather Joywings and two NRF52 micros. Same issue on both setups.
The Joywing works fine if you do not press the buttons too quickly, but if you 'button mash' Like you would when play a game everything will lock up and you must reset.
I tested with and without the interrupt. Doesn't make any difference.
I tried several power supplies.
I bought the second set of JoyWing and Nrf52 just to test this, same issue.

If you want to test yourself, I suggest just running the adafruit JoyWing arduino example and press the buttons very quickly for a minute or so, it should lock up.

Ultimately I had to do horrible things to the JoyWing, I just bypassed the IC and wired the thumbstick and buttons directly to the NRF52, works great now.
