This makes for better convenience, although you should be aware of some Leonardo-specific quirks , such as SPI connections being only available via the ICSP header, faster USB serial connection data throughput but slightly different initialization requirements, and programmer reset problems under heavy USB serial traffic. The only slightly annoying factor is having to unplug the SD card wires from the ISP port on the LeoStick before programming, because they’re only accessible at this point, not also on the main headers. However, for beginners, this board is slightly less friendly to work with as there is no direct plug-in compatibility with shields and the soldering of the pins can be slightly challenging especially to those without fine-tipped irons and a steady hand. Unfortunately this is not an Arduino sketch, it’s not running from an Arduino-style bootloader, so for this sort of thing you need to overwrite the Arduino bootloader on your board with the new code, and re-flash the bootloader when you’re done to restore normal Arduino-compatible functionality.

You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. Due to the size of the arrays, they needed to be stored with progmem into the flash, as there is not enough RAM for variables to hold it in RAM. I have modified the code and got something that compiles lsostick bytes of RAM used, but I have not got this successfully working yet actually mounting the disk.

Preparation — Soldering the Headers If you wish to use freeetronics for re-usable prototyping, you will probably be interested in soldering the provided headers to the board.

If you wish to use this for re-usable prototyping, you will probably be interested in soldering the provided headers to the board. Power can also be fed through the pins directly if necessary. Reverse Eng Pt 2: There is no on-board voltage regulators, as is the case for miniaturized versions of the Arduino, so you must supply only 5v to this board. Proudly powered by WordPress. Found it really useful — especially the soldering advice.

You also get the board, as well as another anti-static shielding bag with two compact 2. A reset button is provided as well.

The LeoStick which is modified for 3. Power source and piezo disable can be enacted by cutting traces.

Going slow and steady is the way to go. However, if you are naughty like I amyou can go to Device Manager and force install the driver for the Arduino Leonardo from the IDE package overriding the warning message and use the Leeostick Leonardo board selection in the IDE and it will work.

The Package The product comes packaged in a static-shielding bag, with a stapled colour cardboard hanger top and a colour label on the front. The Freetronics LeoStick is an Arduino Leonardo-compatible development board which comes in a stick form factor similar in size to the older Arduino Pro Mini. No other hardware is needed except the SD card socket, LeoStick, 3.

The only slightly annoying factor is having to unplug the SD card wires from the ISP port on the LeoStick before programming, because they’re only accessible at this point, not also on the main headers.

January 26, at 2: The integrated piezo can be disabled by cutting a freetronice, but the tri-colour LED needs to be desoldered, or the resistor pack desoldered to disable it. Unfortunately this is not an Arduino sketch, it’s not running from an Arduino-style bootloader, so for this sort of thing you need to overwrite the Arduino bootloader on your board with the new code, and re-flash the bootloader when you’re done to restore normal Arduino-compatible functionality.

Freetronice part of it, they were to develop the FPGA coding required to play music notated in a simple 4-bit tone and 4-bit duration packed into 1-byte format.

Also of note is that no solder is included, but the versatility to only use the headers where you need them is appreciated. In the package, you get a colour double-sided page with instructions for getting started, downloading drivers and IDE software and specifications of the board.

However, for beginners, this board is slightly less friendly to work with as there is no direct plug-in compatibility with shields and the soldering of the pins can be slightly challenging especially to those without fine-tipped irons and a steady hand.

An enclosed surface mount piezo speaker is provided on the back, with its enclosed nature being sensible as it can generate spike voltages on physical stress.

If using a LeoStick you’ll need to choose one of the ones that is exposed on the headers, and not used by, say, the internal LeoStick LEDs.

Click for more about me! VIN is 5V coming in out of your computer’s USB port, so this is the regulator input, then a ground on one of the ground pins, and the output of the regulator goes to the LeoStick pin labelled “5V”. The silkscreen is very informative, labelling all the pins and peripheral connections.

Just this week, I was gifted a Freetronics LeoStick from a colleague at the university, so I decided to take a look at it over the weekend.
