Hi Impressive Sale of products


Dear all,

DFRobot has launched a sale for a series of Gadgeteer products, all drivers devs are much appreciated to share their code. If anyone know where to find some compatible drivers, please let me know.



Hi Dave,

Sorry but it seems that I can’t answer you either. I’m actually quite interested on all the projects. But point taken.

I’ll guess i wait until i get some project posts done my self. :think:


Don’t worry. If you are genuine then just be patient and you’ll get the points and if someone sees the link and they don’t see it as spam, they will re-post it for you.

Welcome to the forum.


Thanks Dave!!

Was looking forward to get a message out for dukenukem :whistle:

I’ll be patient :snooty:


DFR’s cart isn’t taking their discounted price into consideration. ShieldJ can you get the back room team to fix it ? :wink:


I have a couple of drivers for the OLED 2864 and SD2405 modules (including SD2405 alarm, frequency and countdown functions) that I have been playing around with.

They need a bit of tidying up before I post them though.


I’m not seeing any indication of sale prices, but I do like some of those modules.

The JST connector module appears to be just like the discontinued GHI module that allowed connecting of E-Block sensors, LEDs, etc. to Gadgeteer. I already own a couple of those, but for folks who have one or more E-Blocks laying around, that might be a good way to re-use some of those components.

The DTMF and Servo modules also look interesting.


I have a couple of drivers here

Lots of room to add more however.


@ andre.m - point taken, that’s the plan. I see dukenukem repo, perhaps if i figure out how to work it out, I could try to add other packages there? That’s probably a lot more helpful. As I’ve seen the oled driver somewhere (not sure where), but not on dukenukem repo.


Done :dance:


very interesting to try this, did I see a post with a link to the drivers? perhaps i can test them on my box.


I’m quite looking forward the DTMF as well, however I don’t know if a common landline input would do. I’m not good with radio stuff, so would be a challenge to know if the DTMF codes are getting through to the module or not. However for a bot that can be controlled through a phone call seems quite a lot of fun.I got a SIM card around waiting to be used… but gotta focus on the OLED.

I saw some of the products have a Sale icon and some not. However many of them have discounted prices. It’s a work in progress, so give it a few days…


Is it possible to join the group and help post more community drivers? Would be a lot easier to have them all at one place… I’m asking, but I have not used codeplex yet. Perhaps this is not possible. Would be great if contributions are all in one place for others to find and contribute. Thank’s a lot for the effort!!


@ ShieldJ no problem joining the group, I’ve posted a ‘ad’ for folks to join up or if you send me your User ID on Codeplex I’ll add you to the developer list.

I can help you with building drivers and codeplex (or perhaps more accurately I can help you muddle through it).


the $5.05 prices on the two LCD modules have disappeared now. Oh well.


Looks like the changes in the latest SDK have rendered the drives useless for the time being! :-[

I currently get text so small you need a magnifying glass to read it and increasing font size appears to give you two bitmaps side by side. I think it’s related to this

as my N18 display on another project also displays similar results. Once this is resolved I’ll put the OLED2864 driver in codeshare.


@ Sprigo - Haha, cool. funny results. I’ll have the magnifier nearby in case. But it’s looking quite good already. :clap:


@ Sprigo - There is an issue that affects the DisplayN18 on non-cerb boards in the latest SDK:


@ John - Yeah I’d seen the other thread and believed this issue was related.


@ Sprigo - Opps, looks like I completely read past you linking that originally.
