what you did is exciting! I have a broken raymarine st2000 autopilot. Electornics is dead, but the motor and mechanics is working. I'd like to interface an arduino to the raymarine. I don't know where to start with the software. I mean that I do not want to write something too responsive (sensible) or the contrary.
Could you share some of your code?
Thank you so much
What I now have, with regards to code, is larger than what will fit in an UNO, Arduino. I use a larger processor. I will look at the code and see if there is a portion that can be shared.
Arduino UNO is limited, but ther is the Arduino Mega that has much more memory.
Thank you if you can share something. I'll share mine later.
I am using the ITG3200 3 axis gyro chip and an LSM303 magnetometer/accelerometer.
They are working quite well, and I believe Sparkfun and Pololu have implementations of both on carrier boards.
I just sent you a Friend request, I think if you reply to that we can exchange email within the forum. I know I have an inbox. I will see what the address is and send shortly.
OK, EMAIL works once you have be friended someone. An outline of this H Bridge, it is using a $5.00 control chip and 4 large NFETs. The control chip is for this application and has several failure mode protections. Once we establish an email path I can send you a schematic and we can discuss.
