sensor_vn used as GPIO39 input

Postby Francis » Wed Jan 13, 2021 4:21 pm

Hello,

I am trying to connect a 3x4 keyboard using Keypad.h library example.

I wish to use GPIO 26, 25, 33, 32, 35, 34, 39 as input.

I put 10k pull-up resistors for GPIO 35, 34 and 39.

I have to use code as follow:

Code: Select all

byte rowPins[ROWS] = {R1, R2, R3, R4};
byte colPins[COLS] = {C1, C2, C3};
Case 1 works:

Code: Select all

byte rowPins[ROWS] = {26, 34, 35, 33};
byte colPins[COLS] = {25, 27, 32};
Case 2 does not work:

Code: Select all

byte rowPins[ROWS] = {25, 39, 34, 32};
byte colPins[COLS] = {33, 26, 35};
In case 2, nothing happens when I press keys of column 3.

The problem should come from GPIO35. But why is it working in case 1?

So maybe the problem comes from the use of GPIO39?
Am I using the right pull-up for GPIO39?
Has it something to do with the capacitor of GPIO39?
The use of GPIO39 disables GPIO35?

Thank you for your help!

Francis

Keypads like this work by toggling column pins output low sequentially, reading the state of each row pin for each column.

In case 2, GPIO 35 is used as a column pin yet it is not output capable, so the row pins are always pulled high.

34-39 should only be used as row pins here (with external pullups).

Thank you very much!

Here is the solution I finally use:

Code: Select all

byte rowPins[ROWS] = {25, 39, 34, 35};
byte colPins[COLS] = {33, 26, 32};
Cheers,

Francis
