Yet another walter application. Pinguino is connected to the fonera with the serial port. The Fonera run Lighttpd web server with LUA CGI-BIN. The Iphone is connected to the Fonera web server and drive Fonera GPIO and Pinguino.
Thanks for the video Walter, you did a great job.......

Virtual Pinguino

Walter from madrid works on a virtual pinguino model with ISIS on windows.
The bootloader works and Pinguino IDE can recognize the module as a real board. There is only a problem of speed when trying to download the code.
We will try to fix this.

Good idea and good job.......

Pinguino on 18F2455/18F4455

Finally, i tested Pinguino on 18F2455 and 4455. These chips offer the same functions but less memory capacity.
Everything is OK with bootloader V2, but i programmed the chips with 18F4550 checked. If i check 18F4455 on my programer software, nothing works !!
I use a home made JDM programer and IC-PROG with wine.
Maybe it will be useful for other users.........

Bootloader V2 upgraded

Vasile ( FreeJALduino project ) sent me an email to report a problem. With bootloader alpha V2, when Pinguino is external powered, the program didn't start.
This bug is corrected in bootloader4550V2.hex

Thanks for submitting this bug.

FreeJALduino works !!

Vasi made FreeJALduino, a 18F2550 board exactly like an arduino ( see this post ).
I am happy to know that the first test works with a modified version of Pinguino.
I plan to integrate a FreeJALduino directive in the next version of pinguino.
Congratulations for this nice job Vasi.

Tiny 4550 on a proto-board

This is the last design of tiny pinguino 4550 on a proto-board.

It was drawn with Inkscape:

You must cut the tracks marked with a red point.
I used this home made tool to do this:

Now you can sold components and wires. The 18F4550 must be mounted on a suport.

This version offers the same functionalities as the PCB version.

The booloader V2 must be used with this design.

Last upgrade 29/09/2009: Cutting points were modified, thanks to André.
