Ideas for Areas to Explore

  • Vary the coil size and windings to see how this affects the sensitivity.
  • Improve the magnetometer value as it currently only makes use of the z dimension.
  • Add a recent peak feature to the voltage bar graph and magnetometer circle.
  • If you are using the CPB without a screen:
    • Add some audio cues as time passes when the left button is depressed to give an indication of the current menu option.
    • Conditionally disable the screen update code for a faster main loop or for better voltage stability from increased sampling. The TFT Gizmo screen is not designed to be detectable but the approach outlined in Adafruit Forums: Is it possible to detect presence of Gizmo? is likely to work.
