I bought this cute case for the Raspberry Pi. It's made by Italian company Italtronic, in the UK avalable from CPC. They have cases for different Pis. Mine is for the B+.     Assembly  It's easy. There's no Ikea-style manual though, so you may get it wrong the first time. The only tool required is a screwdriver. The Pi is locked in place with 2 screws (included). Some attention is needed: wait with assembling the black rail mount spring until the box is assembled and close ...
I'm building a SCPI electronics lab instrument for Linux. In this post I'm creating a service wrapper and install the Linux service. It will start at Pi startup, and can be stopped / started as you'd expect from a service.   Prerequisites  You should have built the two binaries for this project, as documented in post 4a and 4b. If you didn't, the binaries are available as archive attached to post 4b. linux_scpi_socket linux_piface_digital_service_cpp These binaries should be ...
In a post about accessing Amazon Web Services from Node-RED that I wrote for another device, I claimed that it would also work on a Raspberry Pi. I wrote that without testing. I guess I'll have to put the money where the mouth is, and show that the claim is true. Let's install Node-RED on a Pi and communicate with Amazon Web Services. image: action capture of AWS IoT Core's MQTT Test page shooting a message to the Node-RED running on YOUR!

I'm building a SCPI programmable Lab switch with a Raspberry Pi and PiFace Digital. Communication is over TCP/IP. In this post: the LabVIEW drivers   What is this Lab Switch?  This is a lab instrument. A switch that can be controlled via commands, over the network. The switch hardware is a combination of two off-the-shelf components: a Raspberry Pi and a PiFace Digital. All inputs and outputs of the PiFace Digital are accessable via commands. You can read the inputs and set th ...
