ubuntu & atmega
May 6, 2009
So my pickit2 kept failing, even with only pic in circiut. FinallyI got fed up of pics and windows. I deleted windows, moved to ubuntu, took out mu usbasp and atmega88. Tried to get pickit analyser (like computer oscilloscope) working on linux but it seems impossible, so I have to use windows computer for that. I also found out that linux + pic programming = big no no.
Programming atmega88 with usbasp works perfect. I'll try to get everything(ir sensors, ir receiver, leds, ir leds, pressure sensors etc.) attached to Snapper and then I will make a good circuit board. I'm tired of breadboard robots.
I have no extra servos and no money at all, but i needed some gearmotors for my robot hand, so i took random stepper motor and handful of gears and built one. I had previously found out ~5 ways not to build a gearbox so this time it was success!! It has like 1:100 gear ratio and it works pretty well. Two gearboxes more and i have enough :)
