  2. Re: Them interrupts, them interrupts, they drive me mad!

    Thanks Les! I've just tried your code and, of course, it works a treat. It's always good to get "pro" tips and learn a bit more about how the compiler works.
  3. Re: Them interrupts, them interrupts, they drive me mad!

    Many thanks folks for all the helpful pointers and code examples. I've now got my rotary encoder working reliably using interrupts. It's been a frustrating process, but I do feel as if I've learn't a...

    Greetings good people. For reasons I can't really explain, I decided it was about time I started to learn how to use interrupts. My current project is an antenna analyser which requires the use of a...

    Re: BME280 Humidity/Pressure/Temperature code

    Hi Bob,

    The BME280 should do SPI although I haven't tried it myself. Some boards only bring out the I2C connections, others do both. I might buy one that offers SPI to play with.

    Cheers,

    Hi superdat,

    I've just been looking at the BME280 datasheet. It would seem that you may be able to use your BME280 with I2C. SDI becomes SDA (I2C) and SCK becomes SCL (I2C). Depending on your...
