We have discovered an issue which affects some Expansion Boards 3.1. We have been able to determine that only a few hundred units are affected by a revision of the PIC Microcontroller used on these boards. As per usual, Pycom stands firmly behind the quality of its products and we will issue a free replacement for any affected units.
This issue manifests itself when the user tries updating the Expansion Board. If you find yourself with this issue please follow the following steps:
Send Pycom a photo of the QR scan or best scan the QR code on the expansion board in order to reveal the serial number. This info should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once we determine the item has the A2 version of the PIC Microntroller we will release an RMA number and forward you the relevant form to complete requesting contact and delivery details. To do follow this link: https://pycom.io/support-community/support/rma/
You do NOT need to send us the Expansion board. We will simply send you a free of charge replacement.
Thank you for your continued support!
Best wishes Fred
Has anyone been able to set up the GPy so that when you connect to the GPy's WiFi in AP mode you have access to the LTE's internet connection. I have the LTE internet connection sorted, but I have limited understanding on the networking nuts and bolts. My searching suggests the answer lies in setting up sockets for HTTP but I'm confused on how to link the LTE and the wifi. Any clues or even a starting point would be greatly appreciated.
@mattt said in Using PyCom boards with Arduino IDE:
I did have to add #define SerialAT Serial2
That seemed to work indeed! Sending AT+CSQ replied with 99,99 which is no connection. Haven't tried it any further, but it's more than I had a few months ago ;) Thanks!
EDIT : There was no antenna connected nor was there a SIM inserted, so the 99,99 is logical.
I see a lot of documentation about how to update the firmware of the pytrack or pysense shields with dfu-util.
Is there any way to find out the version of the firmware loaded on a given pysense/tytrack?
Also extracting the firmware from teh device (with dfu-util -u ...) does not work, so comparing with images from the repository is not an option.
I still can't seem to post to any of the Wireless sections of the board, and given the few posts that are there, I suspect no one else can either. Can we get that area unlocked so we can raise questions that fall into those categories?
For a client, I'm looking for a senior Micropython/embedded developer (freelance/contractor) that preferrably has experience with Pycom modules. I have been working as developer for the client myself, but they need extra help.
You will be working on the software for a new iteration of the (Pycom-based) device that the company is developing. You will be working most of the time on the Micropython code that runs on the devices. You will also need to be comfortable with embedded C in order to analyze and fix problems in the Pycom firmware when they arise and extend the firmware in case a feature cannot be implemented in Micropython.
You can work remotely, but occassional visits to the company headquarters in Noord-Brabant are desired.
Developer Experience Profile
Embedded C + GNU command line toolchain (gcc, gdb, binutils)
Inter-IC Protocol knowledge: I2C, SPI, 1Wire, etc.
Analyzing/Debugging hardware issues using a logic analyzer
Development of device drivers and other low-level code (both in Micropython as well as C)
Unit testing (esp. Python) is a plus
TypeScript & React experience is a big plus, but not a must
Bluetooth experience is a plus, but not a must
The company is active in the smart building and real-estate space. It has many Pycom-based products deployed in a number of large buildings in The Netherlands. The team working on the products and services is very small so you will have a lot of influence on the product. The company is based in Noord-Brabant, The Netherlands, easily accesible by car or public transit.
