Arduino IDE basic coding help PLEASE!

by JTShots

Hello Adafruit! I've always loved your youtube channel and shop. Instead of buying it just make it! I learned python and tried to learn some Arduino but failed. But anyways I recently just picked up a Nintendo Switch lite. I wanted to make an Animal Crossing channel but sadly there isn't a video out. I searched up ideas online to help me find ways to take video and I kept on getting the same thing. String 30 second clips together. So the switch lite can take 30 second clips, but you had to string them together to get something longer. Unfortunately I can't keep track of taking 30 second clips every 30 seconds while playing a game. So I had an idea. What if I use an arduino and a servo to every 30 seconds hit the button for 3 seconds. My idea was every 30 seconds it goes down 90 degrees, stays 3 seconds, retracts and repeats. I would greatly appreciate it if any of you could whip up this simple code, PLEASE!! If you have any questions I will get to them pretty soon.

Trinket 5V Error (Still!!!)

by mendeleev_the1st

Hello all,
So I'm trying to upload some code to my Trinket Pro 5v 16 MHz (USB) for the Neopixel strips attached to it, and I get the following error:
Using Port : usb
Using Programmer : stk500v2
avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb" (0x03eb:0x2104)

avrdude done. Thank you.

Programmer: AVRISP mkII
Board: Pro Trinket 5V 16 mHz USB

The tutorial on Adafruit says that when I press the reset button on the board, the red light should pulse for 10 seconds, which is when I should upload the code. My board doesn't do that. The light just comes on and goes back off. We've been using a USB cable that is used for uploading data, and this problem has followed us through the lands of Mac, Windows, and beyond. Please help with something besides "go to the Adafruit forums". If I wanted to do that, I would. Thanks!

Im trying to make a robot using arduino and a 16 channel servo shield, but the robot to me not being autonomous is pointless. I have a pixhawk on hand but im not sure that would work. Is there anything else i could do. Any answers would be appreciated

sharing SCL and SDA pin to both, 16 sevo and I2c boards

by willy1067

I need a bit of direction.

trying to connect an Adafruit PCA9685 16-Channel Servo Driver, and an Adafruit I2C FRAM Breakout right to the Adafruit Feather 32u4 Adalogger.
do both boards share the SCL and SDA pin?
