….I take the limit.   I got a 4.0 in my programming class a few years ago for C++. I've tried self-teaching and getting into programming in the past. I even had a job where I designed 100% of the LabVIEW architecture and developed 50% of the code to test new power supplies that are going to the International Space Station.   In the end, I'm not a programmer.   Although I've dabbled, can read through C code, pencil to paper the flow and building blocks, understand a lot ...
Apparently "Start a Discussion" and "Write a Blog Post" have the same templates and look the same, but are not. Some things I'm good at, knowing the difference between those two, not so much.   Last Wednesday, switched from the PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit to the Development Kit that has the PSoC 1, 3, and 5. I purchased the 4 for it. Then started with the 5 for Temp Kit, which the literature and docs state the 3 and 5 are same-same for usability. But trying to program the 5 yielded an error in Crea ...
The Creator SW is pretty awesome. I find it easy to use. Today, my friend and I referenced the data sheets for the UDBs rather than the examples. This was way more successful. We had noticed a coding issue, that in the project examples things were being called and it seemed like infinity as to the possibilities to write because it seemed that there wasn't a library to reference. But, in usual engineering style, the data sheets proved us wrong. Suddenly, what seemed massive and ever growing darkn ...
In case I never get it figured out where to properly move it, lol: SmarterLifeChallenge - JLynch Projects   Another awesome productive day!   Jumped into the world of thermocouple input for a PSoC 4. More work to do, but happy to see lots of thermal measurement options. Many I'm familiar with. Just in researching and moving forward with this it was good to see that I've had my mind on using thermocouples because I use them in test and development. But, as a consumer product and in t ...
