No knowledge of Vinculum II

USB, a must have interface

Unfortunately media player not working on android Firefox browser
post from my Samsung galaxy s4 phone.

OK.. Is everyone taken care of??

 

Blogger

@yolk55

yep.. be sure to order the Vinculum II plug in module as gbabecki indicated

Blogger

@yolk55

Yeah I believe that is the Digikey part number for the board, but you have to also get a cpu module which are 768-1059-ND, 768-1060-ND, or 768-1061-ND.

Iron

@yolk55

checking

 

Blogger

@lordbb

be sure to mark the modified xml file read only or it will mysteriously disappear..

Blogger

Is digital key part number 768-1062ND the correct evaluation board.  The Vinculum ii ?

Iron

I hope you are having as much fun as I am.

"See" you  tomorrow..

 

@lordbb

for b4a in the project folder-- /Objects/res/xml

If that's got everybody covered, gbabecki, you can kill the lights..

Blogger

where does the xml file go?

Iron

Fred you can leave and I'll turn off the lights...

Iron

Thanks Fred; I'm whole until tomorrow.

Iron

Did everyone get an answer to their questions??

Blogger

@gbabecki

Correct

 

Blogger

@Fred Eady

I gather the 32, 48, and 64 pin Vinculum parts simply have different quantity of I/O pins, that about right?

Iron

Did I miss anyone?

Again, the source links for Class 1 and Class 2 are listed in the chat area.

 

Blogger

Hi Fred,
one more thing I do not understand is how are you mixing JAVA, VisualBasic and C all in the same application ?
thanks
@EmbedXControls

B4A uses the Android SDK Java resources to create true .apk files that are normally generated using Java and the Eclipse IDE.  B4A has a VB feel.  There is no VB used in this process. C is used by the Vinculum II hardware.

Blogger

Fred Are we connecting Vinculum-II to Android via USB ?
@EmbedXControls
Yes.

Blogger

Oh, I see,you select 32, 48, or 64 pin versions. Thanks

Gold

How other peripehral/ IOs are handled in b4A? Considering more specific the USB has sriver available from FTDI.
choudankar@gmail.com
Eveything in B4A is library oriented.

Blogger

@78RPM

If you mean the Vinculum II plug in.  You have to purchase that separatelly from the eval board.

Blogger

On slide 6, does the top layer board come with the Eval board or is it purchased separately?

Gold

Fred - Any details on this eval board and daughterboard?
@drw36
There is more than you want to read in one day available on the FTDI site (www.ftdichip.com).
Search on Vinculum II.

Blogger

The Vinculum II MCU core is some known core or is a proprietary one?
@cghaba
Proprietary to FTDI.

Blogger

is there a good resource that explains the android library commands? and proper coding?
@tcmotz
There is an entire web site devoted to Android programming. Search on Android Developer.
If you are asking about b4A, the b4A site is a teaching tool within itself.


I follow that we are responding to an event for when the USB is plugged in, and then bringing up the Android app to interact with the target.   I don't follow how the stream gets connected to a valid stream to the target -- where did that come from?  If it's on a slide, give me the slide number, please?
@edaverill
The process is not on one slide. Recall in the Manifest Editor we added an intent that referenced an XML file that contained the intent filter. Most
of the connection process in b4a (finding an Android Accessory, intitalizing AsyncStreams, etc.)  takes place in the Acitvity Create subroutine.

I'm taking the Vinculum product training right now.  It opens up worlds of understanding for me.

Go to the Vinculum II on Digi-Key's website, then click on the link next to "Manufacturer" and you find the tutorials.

Gold

Iron

Fred How is B4A compiled and run on Android ? Are we to use VisualDesigner IDE tool to do that ?

thanks

Hello Fred - You helped me get into PIC's way back in 1994 when I bought one of your PIC Programmers! Thanks, it worked great!
@LostInSpace
You are dating me :-)  Glad to see you here!!

 

How is Basic program running on Android Platform ?
@EmbedXControls
It is compiled in B4a and downloaded to the Android device as a .apk file.

 

interesting what is mcu core inside Vinculum?
@kostya2012
It's proprietary to FTDI.


what are these vos_* APIs ?
@EmbedXControls
APIs for the Vinculum II firmware.


Why don't you just XOR LED1
@George Mallard
Didn't want to get too fancy.  Some folks aren't C gurus.


I have had problems in the past with geting Android phones to work as USB hosts.
Do all android phones support the USB functions you mentioned?
@George Mallard
Actually, the Android version controls that. Everthing above 3.1 should be support what was presented.

Blogger

Fred Are we connecting Vinculum-II to Android via USB ? 

Your presentation is very fast Fred. Therefore, even if it is clear what code is what, I would suggest to indicate on the slide to which part the code belongs (Android or Vinculum). In this way the listeners would place themselves in the contex more quickly.
@cghaba
I thought I did that.  However, if it was unclear I apologize.  The easy way to tell b4A code from regular C is the // comment delimiters used by C and not allowed in b4A.


? will the btnButton (assuming it's touch sensitive) on the screen also toggle baord LED1 and LED image on the screen?
@WherleyBird
Yes.


Is the code portable across different USB specs?

@dpalu2
No.

Blogger

Thanks fred for your complete answer to my question about the IDE setup etc

so both Basic Code and C code is mixed together and compiled before running it ?
@EmbedXControls
Nope.. B4A code is compiled separately in the b4a environment.  B4A code runs on the Android device.
C code for the Android Accessory (Vinculum II) is compiled in the Vinculum IDE and loaded on the Vinculum II micro.


Is the FTDI Vinculum II also suitable as a micro controller or is it better to use it as a support device
@testflight
It is a very good micro.  Runs via RTOS and has fantastic I/O capability.

Blogger

Are switches debounced in software or is there a hardware latch?
@RMRSS
Software by way of the dirty 10ms delay I threw in.


Is any USB3 used?
@RMRSS
Nope..

Blogger

Thanks Fred, Rich, DigiKey and ieee

where is the the c code running on ?
@EmbedXControls
On the Vinculum II micro.


Hi Fred, I still do not understand how the development environment is set for this type of development
Please let me know what IDE I am using and what language compiler the IDE uses ?
Also how to connect the EVAL board to the PC running the IDE.
Please give me a step by step instructions./

thanks

sarvesh


@EmbedXContro

IDE is part of the Vinculum II Tool Chain, which is downloaded and installed as a complete unit.
Nothing else is needed as the compiler, debugger and linker are integral to the Tool Chain.
The Vinculum II eval board is attached to the pc using a USB cable.  No different than running
Microchip's MPLABX using a PICKIT3.  Think of the PICKIT3 being part of the Vinculum Eval board
and the Vinculum Tool Chain as MPLABX and the Microchip C compilers.

Blogger

Do you know if the B4A folks keep up with the latest version of the Android OS with there system?

Iron

@EmbedXControls, I believe we are to evaluate the entire course after Friday, not each class session.

Gold

I'm IN!!

I've been queing up the questions and the answers are now forthcoming...

Blogger

How do i do the survey for Previous class ?

My intent is to pick at least one of these projects as a learning experience and actually buy the target and make it work.  Maybe more than one.  So, will appreciate any lists and references that make that easy.  Then, if you ever teach these classes in a form that expects the student to really be solving the problem, not just getting a quick intro, I'd like to know.

Iron

@richnass re "@richnass re Ed Harris question"

Rich, was my answer correct (at least in the ballpark)?

Iron

Got to go will check the answers on the archive later.

Iron

We will hear again tomorrow.

Iron

is there a good resource that explains the android library commands? and proper coding?

 

Iron

I follow that we are responding to an event for when the USB is plugged in, and then bringing up the Android app to interact with the target.   I don't follow how the stream gets connected to a valid stream to the target -- where did that come from?  If it's on a slide, give me the slide number, please?

 

Iron

I've really liked these classes, but could the classes be via video streaming, in that way he could point easier at the things he is referring to at the moment and also it would be clearer. Besides the classes have been great, many thanks!

Hi Fred,

 

one more thing I do not understand is how are you mixing JAVA, VisualBasic and C all in the same application ?

 

thanks

@RMRSS re "Any discounts for students of the class on any stuff?":

I don't know of any hardware discounts but I have a B4A discount code I got with my purchase: dslhhx

Just follow the Plimus instructions on the B4A site purchase page.

Iron

Thank you Fred.  It goes pretty fast.  It would be great if there were a link to the source code.

Iron

When I go to the URL 

http://www.digikey.com/Suppliers/us/Future-Technology-Devices.page?lang=en

For each of the topics there is a Parts List.   I would something like that for each of these classes.

Iron

Iron

Vinculum itself as I see

 

Iron

where is the the c code running on ?

Why don't you just XOR LED1

what are these vos_* APIs ?

 

Bad soldering on SW1 

Iron

Most likely USB will be used

Iron

@richnass  I would find it helpful if you posted your questions in bold.  It makes them easier to pick out from all of the responses.

Iron

No current plans for USB OA.

Iron

USB will probably replace serial.

Iron

Yes, we are looking to USB applications for split out GPIO.

Iron

No open USB on horizon butnow that I know it will be considered

Iron

 

I had not thought of USB accessory before now but probably will consider it 

 

Iron

Yes I have apps planned

Iron

Not yet, just learning about this

Iron

No, not for work at least

Iron

Maybe USB in the future.

Iron

Nom USB as of yet. Stilll learning...

Iron

Not sure at this moment.

Iron

Not yet, but I'd like to be prepared for that potential project.

Iron

Yes, USB accessories will likely be in my future due to the common availability of USB connectivity

Iron

Not at the moment (that I'm aware of)

Iron

Will have to come up with a good one.

Iron

It is already with the PIC

Don't have an USB OA app in the future

Iron

USB open accessory - could be.

No USBaccessory as of yet, but expected

Iron

Yes.. just to play around

Iron

Slide 10 (thanks JMax)

Blogger

I don't have one planned.

Though usb can be a real pain.

Iron

I have taken all of the IEEE U. and DN Radio, +all 4 semesters classes.

I am retired and do not know anything about the certifications or certificates

or what can be done with them. The classes are O.K.

   I feel the archival attendance  and collaborations should have some recognition too.

Iron

Seems USB is becoming a larger percentage since RS232 is gone in a sense.

Iron

USB for file download only.

Iron

USB 3  - 2%

USB 2    10%

RMRSS estimates

Iron

I do not have an application for USB with Android

Iron

Most of my projects require USB (90%)

Iron

Don't need IEEE hrs.  USB seems to be replacing RS-232, yes?

Iron

most of themhave a USB connection, more than 85%

All new project require USB.

Iron

50-75% of our electronic controls products use USB

Iron

How is Basic program running on Android Platform ?

 

0%, Not using USB at this time.

Iron

100% of my projects require USB.

Iron

 

None have required USB as yet

 

Iron

40% of projects, but they are converting USB to RS232 for legacy systems

 

Iron

Not at this time.

 

Iron

I agree, USB is increasing..60-70%

Iron

Maybe 20% need USB. Need increasing.

Iron

Products for manufacturing floor, since interface w/ PLCs, not much USB

Iron

1/3 of my projects use USB

Gold

Mostly doing software only projects so no USB required at the moment.

Probably about 50% use USB.

Iron

Approx 60% depend upon USB

 

Iron

About 50% as well.

 

Iron

Almost all of my projects.

 

Iron

60 percent of my projects use usb

Iron

Most of my projects want USB in either host or device modes.

Iron

All of my projects require USB.

Iron

Newest project will  probably use USB.

 

Iron

hmm, i would say about 50-60%

Iron

PDH is great. I will attend even though there is no credit.

 

Iron

becoming more prevalent

Iron

I am not using yet but intend to use it in next project.

Iron

Question: What percentage of your projects require USB?

Blogger

CDH are a good bonus but not necessary for me.

Iron

? For other IO interfaces what is driver requirement if aren't supported by Basic4Android?

 

Credits are nice, but I take the courses that either interest me, or are of use to me (which is usually one in the same!  LOL

Iron

The hours are nice but the information learned in the reason I attend.

Iron

IEEE credit reason for attending live vrs archived, but would go over anyway.

 

Iron

Yes!! Testing purpose...

 

Iron

Professional Dev Credit is good.

 

Iron

Starbucks caffeine moves my dev efforts forward more, to be honest.  :)

Not sure if my employer favor those credits...but I am more interested in the course.

Iron

OK, sound on.  Had to close slides first.  Strange.  Must be my problem.

Iron

PDH is nice, but I would attend anyway.  Having to attend live is going to cut into the number of credits I will be able to get.  I often have conflicts with live presentation.

Iron

IEEE credit caused me to see notice

Iron

I don't have a pressing need for PDH but feel it is probably a step in the right direction.

Iron

not currently interested in IEEE credits

Iron

IEEE credits to show that I am staying current, but not required.

 

Iron

I enjoy the class one way or the other

Iron

Just purchased 3.2 today :)

 

Iron

PDH hours are desired.

 

Iron

Nice bonus, but not needed in my work

Iron

Enjoy the lecture most, but the IEEE credit is a good incentive to be interactive. Sometimes it is hard to be completely available for live session. Within the hour I can review the data though.

 

Iron

PDH's are very helpful for documenting learning.  I would take the course anyway.

Continuing Education is required for Licensed Professional Engineers.

Iron

I am interested in PDHs but I do not need them for my certification.

Iron

Yes recognition is important to me

Iron

CE hours may be helpful - my employer is likely to accept them as official training because of that.  IEEE hours not necessarily as important for me

Iron

The main purpose is to learn something needed. Theaddition of IEEE credit helps.

 

The IEEE professional development hours are a great incentive.  They are not the reason why I took this course, but it is definitely a benefit.

Iron

I think of the IEEE certs as a nice bonus. I would take these classes anyway.

Gold

Not for IEEE hours but I am glad that I could receive them.

Iron

pdh is valuable, reason I'm here live.

Iron

I don't care about credits.

Iron

Yes, it is very important to gt credit for attanding the class

Iron

Hours not a "biggie" for me

 

Iron

ieee fine, but not main reason

 

Iron

Further development, in some cases help with current projects

Iron

The content of the class is more important than the PDH for me

Iron

Howdy - near Pittsburg PA

Iron

It is good for the credits but my employer do not require them.

 

Iron

IEEE credit is not the reason I take this, but is a benefit.

Iron

YES!!  PD hours are awesome.  Thanks for doing this!

Iron

YES! IEEE is important! Big driver  for being here.

Iron

not currently interested in IEEE credits

Iron

PDH not going to make a difference for me
