Hi,   I'm working actually on a professional RS422/RS485 shield for the Raspberry Pi. I wasn't satisfied with the shields on the market. They are very simple and have some disadvantages. My shield comes with the following features:   RS422 (full duplex) support RS485 (half duplex) support galvanic isolation between PI and interface indicator leds for RX and TX activity switchable pull-up, pull-down and terminal resistor different modes for send/receive switching (Auto, GPIO, alw ...

I'm not sure how I managed to miss this, perhaps because it's still in 'developer preview', but a version of Android is officially available for the Raspberry Pi 3.   If you're really keen, you can download the image here for the developer preview 3.1.   Thanks to the recent release of Google's AIY Project with the latest version of the MagPi magazine (already selling for £40+ on ebay), the official guide for the project which is rumored to be on sale at a later date from Go ...
Google has been busy getting stuff attached to MagPi magazines.. I spotted a box containing an 'AIY' kit at the local magazine retailer. Basically it is a card box with some electrical parts and the MagPi magazine. It is like a cut-down DIY version of Amazon Alexa from what I can tell.   They had plenty at closing time, so I suspect there will be lots for people to buy tomorrow too, but from examination it is an audio card and a few peripherals. USB sound cards are cheap these days so tha ...
The Raspberry Pi and other low-cost, board-based computers are becoming increasingly popular amongst developers and hobbyists, thanks to the Internet of Things revolution. Users are easily able to experiment with IoT projects by connecting to a network using wired or wireless connections – whether this is through the simple use of an Ethernet cable, or with complementary accessories such as the Raspberry Pi’s Wi-Fi adapter dongle.   However, users requiring access to internet d ...
I am hoping that a new HAT we have designed and released will be of interest to anyone wanting to control motors within their own projects using the Raspberry Pi computer. The Pulse Train Hat is an add-on board for the Rapsberry Pi computer and allows clean, fast and accurate pulses to be created using simple ASCII commands.   There are many hardware designs where a variable frequency pulse is needed, but one that is the most popular is for driving stepper/servo motors that use pulse an ...
Hi, my name is Dan and my ham radio callsign is M0WUT. I am developing an automated Raspberry Pi Zero based transceiver for the WSPR amateur mode. What is WSPR? WSPR stands for Weak Signal Propogation Reporter (full details WSJT Home Page) developed by Joe Taylor, K1JT. In short, amateur stations transmit data packets containing their callsign, their location and how much power they are transmitting with. Once received, these can be decoded by a computer who uploads them to a central databas ...
If you are here to see how to add Ethernet / soundcard functionality to the Pi Zero, this is a part to be used in my automated amateur radio WSPR transceiver. Explanation of which can be found here: WSPRpi part 0: Introduction and what is WSPR? If you are not interested in how I intend to use it and just want to see how to add Ethernet or a soundcard to a Pi Zero, skip to the Design section.   Finished result   WSPRpi For people interested in the use in the WSPRpi project: The tw ...
Last year MathWorks announced the MATLAB and Simulink Hardware Challenge, in which a lot of you from our element14 community participated. I am here to introduce the MATLAB and Simulink Mobile Devices Challenge this year. Have you developed a cool Android or iOS app using MATLAB or Simulink? Have you created a MATLAB or Simulink project where you use an app from your mobile device to control an Arduino or Raspberry Pi? Have you analyzed sensor data from Android or iOS Mobile devices (phone o ...
Introduction At Embedded World 2017 I saw something that initially made me very confused. It was a rugged piece of hardware that clearly looked like it was related to the Raspberry Pi in some way but upon opening it up I couldn’t see how a Pi would fit inside. The internal connector looked interesting because it had pins instead of a socket, so how could a Pi 3 plug on top of it? And it had many Ethernet and USB ports already fitted. It took someone to explain it to me. This was actually a ...
Go Go Gadget Raspberry Pi Zero W                      Happy Birthday from Raspberry Pi Foundation!!!     March 7 was Raspberry Pi’s fifth birthday: it has been five years since we launched the original Raspberry Pi, selling a hundred thousand units in the first day, and setting us on the road to a lifetime total (so far) of over twelve million units. To celebrate, we̵ ...
Raspberry Pi have (today) launched the new Raspberry Pi Zero Wireless.     For more information on the Raspberry Pi Zero range, including where to buy the new Raspberry Pi Zero Wireless please visit the Raspberry Pi Foundation website at https://www.raspberrypi.org/   Happy 5th Birthday Raspberry Pi! ...
Hello Again, As i said in others post of mine i am working on a house automation system based on raspberry pi and arduino ... I ve moved a lot with this.. I also writing a program for this. I wrote the program in Visual basic 2010...it has over 1000 lines of code cause it is also like JARVIS from ironman... It can execute a dissent amount of pre installed commands. I also added a feture when the doorbell ring a window pop up in my screen and it show me who is in the front door with face recogn ...
Almost everyone has heard of RetroPie.     The open source software which has enabled a bunch of Ikea tables with embedded Raspberry Pi.   Unfortunately, they've recently learnt a bitter lesson in trademarks, that unless you get there first, someone else can pull the rug out from under your feet, as the makers behind RetroPie call out for legal help.     Amazingly, someone from India has setup a website selling Raspberry Pi's with the software on the SDCards, some ...
