i am attempting to add memory using an external eeprom. the good news is that i have added the memory and know that it works. the bad news is i can't get my information onto the memory. the problem is i am reading data from an imu using the command GetADC(pinnumber), which returns an analog voltage in 10 bits. to log our information onto external memory i am using the command Shift

Has anyone coded spece efficient replacements for pow() and log()? The BasicX library versions of these consume so much stack that they are basically useless. Has anyone coded a Taylor's expansion for these that they's like to share?

I have a rotating project, powered through slip rings. Slip rings are inherently noisy so, to minimize noise on the power bus, I've added a large electrolytic on the downstream side, before regulation, to supply power as brushes ride over micro-pits on the rings. I am concerned that brief, theoretically-unlimited recharge currents will worsen the pitting over time. Does anyone have experi

Hello, I am using the Bx-24 for a datalogging application. I modified the data logging software I found from basicx's site, and I'm having problems sampling fast enough. I was wondering if anyone knew a faster way to sample to increase my sampling time? I took my sampling concept and applied it to a simple program to output everytime it sampled. I tested it accur

I have pulled out the last strand of hair and cannot find the problem. I essentially have an 8870 DTMF decoder with the binary output pins connected to pins on the BX. There is a resistor to ground at that junction which if I remember correctly is 100K. Here is clipping of the code. If ((Getpin(5) = 1) AND (Getpin(6) = 0) AND (Getpin(8) =0) AND
