I'm wondering how impossible it can be to connect a touch panel (with USB controller) to a PC for it to send X,Y coordinates when an event happens (the panel is touched). After searching the web for an entire day I couldn't find more then pieces of information that don't tell the whole story. Most of what I understood so for is that I can buy some touch panel development kit ([ebay](http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-6-4-Wire-Resistive-Touch-Screen-Panel-Digitizer-126-5x100mm-USB-controller-/271523635500?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f3811e12c)), create some basic C code that acts like a driver and then use those C functions to handle input on the device in other applications. Question is, is …

I know there are plenty of other places to get info or code snippets for **microcontroller programming** (especially **arduino**). Out of all the boards/sites I visit, I like the **DaniWeb** format the most. I was wondering if a **microcontroller** or **arduino** section could have a home here. Or would that be best classified under "***Software Development\C***", or other various languages that can be used for more than 1 type of hardware? Or **Raspberry Pi**, would that be a "**Linux and Unix**" thing, or something else? Honestly, I'm just happy you have a **Python** section of its own, a couple other …

Hi ..I am aa newbie to micro controller...I have a doubt about the usage of interfacing kit......Why cant we connect a keypad directly to the input port of microcontroller(for ex. 8051)..and the output pin of uC to the led matrix ???? What is the role of interfacing kit in between keypad-uC and uC-led matrix ????? Can someone please explain ..? Thanks in advance.

I am a beginner.I have installed IAR Embedded Workbench "IAR-EW430-4201". Installation was successful. Now, I have started using it by creating a project and included msp430f449.h header file in my code. And When I rebuild the solution/project I get an error saying 'msp430f449.h failed to include' and tried to locate the file it was missing. Should I get this from external source(internet) or is it available anywhere else? Can anyone help me in finding a solution for this problem?

Hello. I am new here so if I make a mistake in any way I apologize. I have a project that I need help with. I am trying to make a countdown timer that countdown 60min to 0sec using microcontroller AT89S8253. A buzzer will sound at 0 sec. My problem is that I do not know how to write in assembly language. So I need help mostly in that. p.s if you can throw in some circuit diagram, I am so grateful to you!!!

Hi all, I'm new to the software package and have written a simple code to turn LED's on/off using a Micro Controller device. When away from the Micro Controller, it would be handy to view the bit orientation (turning on/off) on the computer screen, without the actual device to hand. I think you can view the LED simulation using UVision3...does anybody know how to do this? Currently I am Building the project, starting a Debugging session, and Running the project. Please feel free to correct me! Software: uVision3 Device: LPC2368 Much appreciated.

I used [URL="http://www.parallax.com/Store/Education/KitsandBoards/tabid/182/CategoryID/67/List/0/SortField/0/Level/a/ProductID/313/Default.aspx"]Parallax's Basic Stamp Homework Board[/URL] and an [URL="http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2909788"]accelerometer[/URL] to use as a mouse. It works better than I thought it would. [URL="http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyserial/"]PySerial[/URL] is used to grab the debugged values from the stamp. The circuit is compiled of two push buttons, 2 LEDs to tell when a button is pushed, and the accelerometer. The chip is coded in BASIC: Where IN9, IN10 are the push buttons and X on pin 8, Y on pin 7, and are read by pulse rate. [CODE] ' {$STAMP BS2} ' {$PBASIC 2.5} x VAR Word y VAR Word DO PULSIN 8, 1, x …

Is there a way to grab values from a basic stamp with python? I just bought a Accelerometer and want to read the values with python.
