This project is a failure. Once everything assembled, it worked perfectly ... for 10 minutes. Then the Arduino just died. So I used another one (unsolder/resolder) everything. And it worked perfectly ... for a couple of days before the Arduino also died. I'll poste the schema here to see why it failed (if someone can help ... please).
(see above) for an unknown reason, it died after 2 days. Nothing works anymore, only power led turns on and ... that's all. Life sucks.
2009-12-20 : for an unknown reason the ardReveil decided to ... come back to life! Just plugged it to the usb for ... don't know, yet it's christmas so let's hope for miracle. And it worked all day ! Tonight plugged back on AC wallwart ... and works (for now). Shall I assume that there is a shortcircuit somewhere that I fixed by opening the box again ? Freaks me out ... (Oo;)
2010-01-01: it's working fine for days, except that programatically time can't be changed. So I implemented new functions such as menu (I use the touch screen divided in 4 zones as input), time offset (since you can't change time, you can still adjust it) and alarm setting on/off. Plus little label, this time it's finished \(^o^)/
2010-03-02 : 2 months and a half working fine, waking me up everyday ... and then like last year : pffft, not working anymore. Tried to let it rest a day or two, no outcome. Nothing. Life sucks.
2010-03-13 : Well ... it works back. Tired a few time the past days : nothing. And today, tadaaa, it works again. If someone has an idea, please tell me. Anyway, it came back to life, as did my will to make new electronic stuffs.
2010-03-13 : Last post %20 30min : just died again. Condensator problem ? That would explain the time factor (the longer you way the more it works), won't it ? Life sucks.
2010-07-12 : call me stuborn but I have not forgotten this little one. I plan to remove the arduino inside and put instead a home made arduino-like. It will be easier to update and change the code I think. Well and ... I'm short on idea, you noticed, didn't you? Hope this might help me understand that strange state of fact.
All the files, main .pde %20 satellite .h files for controlling subsystems.
// That arduino pro board is 16 mHz BUT the bootloader is made for 8MHz so force the // Arduino to run half speed (force 8MHz) CLKPR = (1<<CLKPCE); CLKPR = 1; // Divide by 2
