You know your an Engineer when this combination of ICONS means something exciting So a few of you may already have seen the video and post regarding using the DAC8734 from TI with the Raspberry PI so you will know what this is all about, for those that have not, you can see it here: Raspberry PI 2.0, Windows 10 and how to drive the DAC8734 from TI (AKA the DAC8734EVM Road test Board) For those whome have not and or are interested in Interfacing the Arduino to this wonderful chip, lets begin &# ...
I just got this come through to my email, so I thought I would share it with you all   it is short notice, Im going so if your in Ontario and go, ill see you there   Regards   Peter   Atmel Tech on Tour is coming to Ontario in April http://training.atmel.com/TechOnTour_NorthAmerica ...
Back to the main blog BYOB Party #1, "Bring you own Bulbs" - The Internet of Holiday Lights     In the earlier blog about the Infineon I evaluated the demo and created a library to drive the board from that code which worked out quite well, but it was not complete from the IoT of Holiday Lights perspective   Radio interface to Mrs YUN was missing along with a few commands already demonstrated in various videos   This will provide a quick walk through the current level of t ...
Back to initial blog BYOB Party #1, "Bring you own Bulbs" - The Internet of Holiday Lights   And so all good things come to an end and so it is for this project, as a final entry I present the end solution in its completion   The BYOB Party Night   As with so many who are putting in a real attempt at this holiday challenge , this has taken way more time than I expected (Probably well over a hundred hours maybe even twice that) but it has been a blast, loads learned, n ...
Hi there   In my initial blog post I suggested it would be good to not only have way more than the boards provided by the challange (UNO, YUN and Infinion) but also to mix it up a bit by introducing a foreigner into the mix   well I did, in the form of a TI launchpad CC3200 This board has WIFI, full IO, 80Mhz MPU and a whole bunch more   The design goal is to have this board subscribe to its topics directly rather than relying on Mrs YUN and also to provide value while at th ...
Back to main blog BYOB Party #1, "Bring you own Bulbs" - The Internet of Holiday Lights   This kind of brings back memories from the  "Euro vision Song Contest"   Welcome Belgium Welcome Germany Welcome Canada...   you get the idea   so what I wanted to do here was to have a matrix display to show a scrolling sign to say welcome to whom ever publishes their name to the "element14_IoT" topic of the Elclipse MQTT broker   I initially tried this using an arduino ...
Back to primary blog BYOB Party #1, "Bring you own Bulbs" - The Internet of Holiday Lights   At the very beginning of this project kartben (Benjamin Cabe) kindly provided a demo for using the Infinion RGB Shield and with that demo was a colour wheel web page to remotely manage the output f the RGB LEDs   Now while this was a great demo, my plans for world domination my challange needed more, I have utilized at least four separate MQTT topics and some sub topics also.   Yes you ...
Back to the primary blog BYOB Party #1, "Bring you own Bulbs" - The Internet of Holiday Lights   OK, so in the last post you where treated to my first attempt at re-flow soldering in an attempt to get my WS2812 LEDS ready for my Holiday Light decoration   Now I have completed a bit of the wiring and have the initial display code up and running, I would like to share some of the effects, i will include the code as you may find it handy for your own projects, I will update it once th ...
Back to primary BLOG BYOB Party #1, "Bring you own Bulbs" - The Internet of Holiday Lights     This is a quick blog to share my experience with trying to solder some WS2812 6pin LED chips onto my custom boards   I have about 14 strips to solder up and each strip contains 10 LED modules, the last time I tried to solder these, I had more fail than ended up on the board so I was determined to find a better way   So what I have is this   TEFAL Convection toaster oven I p ...
This time we have a sneak peak at the PI household to see their preparations for the BYOB Party     Mr PI, not to be outdone by the young whipper-snapper Mr UNO Mrs Yun decided to have a crack at driving a couple of those fancy LED matrix panels from Adafruit, the idea being that messages can be posted to the iot.eclipse.org MQTT Broker and mr PI would subscribe to them and display the data (Messages) on the matrix display in glorious colour   Having all that extra memory allo ...
The the Minions have been busy educating Trinket and as of now have indoctrinated him into the minion union,   This....Is....The....First....BIOMINIONOID.   Meet BOB     Bob is new, he is improved, he is the first Bionic Minion, he is still a baby, Oh ya, he may be bigger than his buds but he has a long way to evolve but he is aware of his surroundings, and he is ready for the BYOB Party, the minions will keep him safe and under control so all is good   between the ...
link back to primary post BYOB Party #1, "Bring you own Bulbs" - The Internet of Holiday Lights   In this episode I will demonstrate and provide all the code used to allow a browser / smartphone / tablet to adjust the colour of a light strip that is connected via an NRF24L01 2.5Ghz wireless link   In a previous episode I showed how to get Mosquitto server, pub and sub clients loaded into the YUN and how to use them   This post is extending on Benjamin Cabé's excellent de ...
WELCOME BABY TRINKET   Back to the beginning BYOB Party #1, "Bring you own Bulbs" - The Internet of Holiday Lights   Great news from the Arduino Cartel   Senior members of the cartel, Mr and Mrs YUN have a new baby, named Trinket, she is very small and young. as a consequence she has not learned much yet but I wanted to introduce her as she will be at the party so with help from several minions, we will endeavour to train educate her as best we can before the party,   She ...
MQTT Server on the Arduino YUN   Back to the beginning BYOB Party #1, "Bring you own Bulbs" - The Internet of Holiday Lights In this episode leading up to the final party of the year we look at running the MQTT Server directly on the YUN, there are numerous posts where this is running on a VM on a PC or on another more capable device but truth be known, it will run perfectly well on the YUN OpenWRT  Linux kernel directly, With the help from Mrs YUN,  ill show you how A vi ...
Party Message Board   Back to the beginning BYOB Party #1, "Bring you own Bulbs" - The Internet of Holiday Lights   I hope your all finding the information useful so far, this is proving to be a fun packed challenge   For today I have chosen to test out the 16*32 panels I bought from Adafruit, they arrived today (yaaa, so many presents already ), these are not really meant for UNOs and the like, there really for massive street signs and ideally driven by powerful FPGA based sy ...
