I'm reading something about a test pin on the FTDI chip needing to go to ground... Is that something I need to look at?
Near as I can tell, my data lines are fine, unless you are referencing the lines on the board. Maybe I have a slightly different chip or eeprom and the data signals aren't going the right direction.
edits: I have checked the org pin, it is set high at 3.3v so it should be operating in word rather than bit mode. The DC (don't connect) lead is connected to... ground with a cap between it and vcc. Still checking the connections...
There is a notch on the upper left of the image of the chip, and also the bevel indicating pin 1-4, I have placed it on the PCB correctly. Ground is to the lower right. No regular dot or crescent on the edge like I am used to seeing in pictures of other Atmel eeproms. I hope I don't have a counterfeit. I got it from a different retailer than an official distributor like Digikey or Mouser.
Hmm, no EEPROM detected per FT_prog:
Perhaps I should switch out to the Microchip brand equivalent, try out my third EEPROM before that?
BTW, what is the capacity of this camera to drive a peltier module?
