Your work is looking pretty nice and i also want to make something like this.
I am new in this field and want to work in this field.
Can you please help me to understand about the Microduino? What type of device it is and what are its applications?
Also what are the other hardware components which you are using in this project?
Please make sure when you are uploading sketches that the mBattery is on (red LED is on) and the Core module is receiving power (red LED is on). You may also have to re-select the COM port. The mBattery may turn off/on automatically if you disconnect and reconnect it to a computer.
If you are still having problems. You can try cleaning the contacts on the boards CAREFULLY. Try to clean the circular contact pads and springy pins CAREFULLY and GENTLY with a clean paper towel dampened with rubbing alcohol. Also, visually inspect the contact pads and spring pins for any defects such as damage, stuck, or just looks wrong.
I just ran what I believe is as similar sketch, taking in analog values and displaying them over the serial port; My mic did often "Stabilize" to a value of 100-200, and would peak at around >600, but could fall back down to double digits.
It seems as if your microphone module may have some issues, though, if you were able to get it to react a bit, then there may be hope, yet.
Can you post the code you used and we can see if there's any issue with that?
Thanks for the support reply.... I will make the results public for others here:
You can not use Core+ Modules with 5V/16Mhz with the Quadcopter Board, because it will consume to much power > 200 mA. The Quadcopter Board has a limit of 150mA (the Robot Board has 500 mA ... much more).
Also the USB TTL module has issues with a Core+ CPU with 5V ... because you can upload a sketch once only, then you have to remove the USB connector and connecting it again (annoying) ... everytime.
So, ... the Quadcopter Board is not well dimensioned, and the USB TTL Module has issues.
To use the GPS Module with the Quadcopter Board is also problematic... not enough power.
It's a lot to do for Microduino. Just do it :)
Supplement: Support recommended to change the IC3 (150mA) with a RT9193 3,3v 0.3A IC (300mA). I will do that.
My laptop's (OS X / Yosemite) is locked down for work (as really everybody's should be: the unsigned XCode attack should be a warning to all us devs!) so of course microduino's expected approach doesn't work.
But while I can download the hardware link, and have g++ installed, I can't see the board. From Harold's link it seems that the proper Arduino path changed from Contents/Resources/Java/hardware to Contents/Java/hardware, so the latter place is where I put the Microduino folder.
And there it sits alongside "arduino", "platform.keys.rewrite.txt" and "tools" so that looks copacetic.
Yet all I see inside arduino is the original default boards.
This is true regardless of whether or not I have the core USB board plugged in.
DId you manage to make it work or got replacement, i have same problem and found many other people facing same problem. i wonder whether the wifi ESP are being sent without any firmware configured into it.
Unfortunately as we were testing our modules for initial release, we were primarily concerned with inter-module compatibility. Below are links to the nRF24 module and PCB zip file. I hope that may shed some light? :\
