Can a prop 1 or basic stamp take instructions from VSA and feed them to servos?
Well mostly because i already have a stamp.Why not VSA and a Parallax USB Servo Controller??? This setup works great if you want to control your prop from a PC. Lots of add ons too Like PWM switches, relay boards and a new exorcist trigger boards.
or You could use Vixen and a Prop1 controller since the driver for vixen has been created...for more information about the Vixen do a search on Jonnymac post. He also may know if this VSA+prop1 combo is possible...
Are you using PULSIN like below or something else?Well on a similar tangent, I was able to get my stamp to identift signals from my mini ssc. I have it set so that i can have VSA send a servo position to a channel on the ssc and then the stamp reads the servo position and executes the instructions i have setup for that value.
I was only able to get a signal from the VSA to start a Prop1/Prop2/BS2 routine. VSA signals a servo swing to the servo controller. The Stamp can read a PULSIN off a signal pin on the the servo controller jumpered to a pin on the Stamp. Im sure some programing wiz could write a program for the PC to start VSA with a serout cue from the stamp...but thats way beyond my skills.
Here's an example code for reading the signal:
'this uses a jumper from a servo controller signal pin to pin 6 on BS2
'when pin 6 receives a pulse greater than 200mS (like servo arm far left)
'it switches PIN 15 HIGH
x VAR Word
PULSIN 6, 1, x
IF x < 200 THEN HIGH 15 ELSE LOW 15
DEBUG CLS, ? X
Yes I am using pulsin. And the key to getting it to be stable is to tie the grounds for the stamp and the ssc together.Are you using PULSIN like below or something else?
