1  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: Control hardware devices with a Wacom Intuos4 and WaxBee on: March 08, 2017, 01:32:00 AM
Waxbee is the reverse of what you need. 

The easiest and more promising I think would be to get a linux-based system, run the standard wacom drivers and interface that with, say "Python" to do whatever pleases you. (no need to buy a costly Rasberry PI, there are other alternatives like the 9$ "C.H.I.P.")

Before buying check if you can find a solution to talk to your "motors" or other hardware devices.  These boards typically come with lots of GPIOs.

"halfkay" is the proprietary bootloader in the Teensy and Waxbee only knows that. You need to save the ".hex" file and use other means to upload it to the pro micro.  Watch that you program using the correct parameters, I have heard pro micros can be "bricked" easily. (something very hard to do with a Teensy).

UD-1218-R and UD-1212-R are (almost) the same device. Control board is the same (or at least I didn't see a difference) so the conversion guides will work as is. The difference is in the firmware to handle the bigger board and as a consequence the Waxbee configuration.

It is indeed possible and like you said very desirable to get the screen mapping utilities for free.

I "just" need to have someone with the model you want to "sniff" the USB packets so we know how to emulate it. If you can find such person that would be willing to run a USB sniffer tool (it can be tricky sometimes to do this, but certainly doable).

Unfortunately, Wacom drivers are extremely picky. As soon as something is not "as expected" it just stops working. It never was able to "guess". The only other hint I could have is to look in the Linux driver source code to see how the packets are handled for Cintiqs. But typically you cannot infer enough info just with the linux driver source code.  The first and foremost thing that is required are the USB and HID "descriptors". (a long series of bytes describing the USB "interface").

FYI: Just got the ProMicro boards (took a little over 2 months to arrive). I'll check them out when I can.

Can you tell if your Teensy counterfeit has a 16Mhz or 8Mhz crystal?
7  Screen Tablet malarky / Tablet Conversion to USB / Re: Pro Micro advice... on: May 27, 2016, 06:02:26 AM
You should install the virtual serial port .hex to troubleshoot this. (it is like a UART-USB converter, but using the same pro micro setup). This will tell you if anything is being sent on the serial port. There are posts and info about doing that.  Maybe simply the baud rate is wrong.

In anyway, for ISDV4 emulation, you have to go through that to get the max X/Y sizes and configure WaxBer else you will not get the good active area.

ALL the Serial "Wacom"s I have seen (and that I believe include the latest serial ones) were running 5 Volts internally. I mean, the main supply power was down-converted to 5 Volts all the time and fed to all the "logic/digital" components. I think they simply kept the same circuitry even if 3v3 was starting to be popular.  (like for the Intuos2)

All OEM Wacoms (for Tablet PCs) that I have seen were running on 3v3 Volts internally. (I say internaly because lots of them had a non-installed zener diode (ZD) (which we suspect was to drop a 5Volt supply) but that was never used AFAICT.

When asking questions or in trouble, always make sure you describe what you have, else how can we help?  Tongue

Uh, now I have a reason less to want an Intuos 3 (I am left only with it being able to cover the missing inch of width of my 22" screen, whereas the XD-1218 falls 60 pixels short... ~17mm ; It is nowhere near enough... long live the Intuos2!!!!).

This sentence is too confusing for me to understand. If you are saying that you are in a situation where you need an extra "inch" of active area (and you have WaxBee powering the conversion), maybe you heard of the "trick" (or feature) to "extend" your activearea (to reach menus, scrolling bars or side palettes) with what I "call" anchors. (with anchors, you can configure a "position" (on an axis) where the pen "goes faster" to reach the edge than your pen -- it is not good for drawing obviously, but for menus and buttons, it can do the job).

Yeah I am afraid of the 8Mhz crystal case. Sparkfun appear to insist on the user to make sure they select the right voltage. They never talk about "converting" a board to the other voltage. That tells me some parts are different (like the crystal), if it was only a jumper, they might have explained how to convert.

Nevertheless, even if Sparkfun's 3v3 board is 16Mhz, the fact that the clone version is 8Mhz is enough to attempt to support it. It's a viable alternative.

(wrong choice, You need 3v3 LDO for Wacom digitizer).

AFAIK, only for ISDV4 you need 3.3v -- All the Wacom tablets I have seen (ADB & Serial, Graphire, Ultrapads & variants, Intuos, Intuos2) -- ALL are running 5V internally.  The only 3.3v I have seen so far are the OEM ISDV4 boards.

Cool stuff! Why do you say it is the end of line?


And what a setup!! Comics reader included.

What software were you using when doing that 5 cm madness on a 5000 pixel image?
14  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: Interfacing a TabletPC digitizer on: May 12, 2016, 01:50:37 PM
In laptop, I would believe serial is (typically) more difficult to configure than USB and the last thing a hardware manufacturer wants to do (after having the lowest BOM cost) is dealing with software. Since the hardware for supporting many USB ports is already a must, dropping the serial devices and just hooking the 2 USB data bus wires + power is real cheap and easy.

So if all laptop peripherals (touch pad, keyboard, digitizer, fingerprint reader, SD card reader, etc) are available as "USB" and are low cost, then the choice is a no brainer.

Just added this Wacom tablet to (to help Google for the next person):

If you have any of the missing information (like measuring its width/height, I can fill this in).
