So i burned out the laser diode :/ Think I may have shorted the capacitor onto it, dumping 6v straight into it. It still lases but only produces a dim dot with a line through it
..its taken me to get the ISD chips talking to an Arduino with SPI.
Well my second arduino has arrived, turns out its not the one I ordered from the U.S. (in fact, I have no idea why this one has arrived :p ). I've been fascinated by laser projectors for ages after seeing one being used on the dome at epcot when I was a kid.
The first steps in getting sound output on my arduino are done, I've succesfully hooked up the ISD1700 chips with all the analogue gubbins that it needs and made it record from my laptops line-out. Had a little fun with this, the chip requires a resistor to set the sample rate. For what I'm doing it …
