Previously in fall 2020, I was selected to roadtest the MAX31889EVSYS. However, I was unable to fully test the system due to a lack of a device running Windows 10(at the time, I had only a windows 10 VM and windows 7 devices).   I have recently acquired a Windows 10 device and I plan on re-evaluating the Evaluation Kit based off new results.   After uploading the code via drag and drop to the MAX32630FTHR, and connecting it to my computer(no DAPLINK necessary!)   Maxim's Evalua ...
Here is a run up of all my thoughts and experiences during this RoadTest...   The MAX31889 is quite a powerful chip, with great accuracy levels and precision.   I was quite disappointed to see that Windows 7 was not supported even though the website claimed it was.   Maxim Support has promised to look into this.   The MAX31889 is also low cost- less than 3 dollars in quantities of one(found on Newark, at time of writing, in USD), which is quite inexpensive and has signifi ...
Trial of Lithium Polymer battery with the MAX32630FTHR feather.   The MAX32630 has a PMIC onboard, for 100mAh charge rate, with a JST PH 2.0 connector to connect a battery, like the feathers from Adafruit.   I didn't have any of such connectors at home, so I asked Dan and Randall to get me them, and crimps and housings showed up at my door a few days later.   I did have some lithium polymer batteries, from GPS's I dismantled. These batteries are 10-12 years old.   I would ...
I am already done with the main part of the roadtest, at least what I was able to do, this is a series of blog posts to complement the RoadTest and to work the features of the Feather, the MAX32630FTHR.   This blog post is to test the BMI160 onboard the device.   TRIAL: BMI160.   I don't know who wrote the Mbed library. The printf function cannot print out integers and floats. Have yet to try with longs and doubles, but I'm assuming not.   Initially, the sample code provided ...
