Hi

I built the Osif on a pcb from seeedstudio.
I flashed the bootloader and programmed the firmware.
But when i scan the port, the software does not find the osif.
I allways get found adapters -1

Any ideas ?

Cheers

I guess the first things first, when you scan, are you connected to a good openservo board? I think you're referencing the diag software scan. If so that scan will scan the I2C bus looking for OpenServos.

No I just have the adapter in the moment, but shouldn't it appear as adapter while scanning ?

I only get:
"No adapters found, but got this far regardless. Something went horribly wrong."

are you windoes or linux?

for linux open a console and type lsusb
You should see OSIF listed as 1964:0001


Did you flash the bootloader on first, or just the main firmware. It sounds like either the firmware is not quite right, or there is a problem with the hex file.

If you want I can upload a basic hex with the working firmware.

Exactly, I installed the bootloader and then used the firmware flash programm.

Works now, it was the firmware.
So, time to invest in some open servos. Smile
