ATXRaspi is a smart power controller for RaspberryPi or similar embedded systems running from a 5V input. It allows you to have an external shutdown button to turn off your target system without a need to login or to issue manual shutdown/sudo halt commands.
Australian Personal Computer Arduino Project 5: Digital audio player - APC Australian Personal Computer So far in this series, we've had a diverse look at how Arduino can interact with a range of real-world devices from servo motors to ultrasonic...
We've been following the work of [Andrew Holme] and his homebrew GPS receiver for a while now. A few years ago, [Andrew] built a four-channel GPS receiver from scratch, but apparently that wasn't enough for him.
Mix together one Raspberry Pi and a sprinkle of cheap external hard drives and you have the recipe for an ultra-low-power and always-on network storage device. Read on as we show you how to set up your own Pi-based NAS.
The TCS34725 RGB color sensor board from Adafruit works with the Netduino Plus 2 using an I2C connection. You can find the datasheet here. The C# example below reports the clear, red, green, and blue light levels for a given sample (printing them to the debug console in Visual Studio).
We’re happy to announce the release of a new version of the Arduino software, version 1.0.5. Barring any unexpected bugfixes, this is the final planned release of the 1.0 series of the IDE. Future releases will be from the 1.5 branch that has been in beta since last summer.
I have first installed on the left the Ethernet adapter with some patafix, well pressed to fix it. I have connected the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet adapter and reordered the cable. After in the next Amiga port i have fixed alwayse with some patafix the hdmi cable with the female port looking outside. I have reordered the cable.
Watch and record live TV on your Raspberry Pi TechRadar UK The Raspberry Pi is perfectly suited to this, too, and with the appropriate hardware it can be turned into a powerful low-cost digital video recorder, complete with media streaming,...
This Brainy Desk Lamp Has a Personality - Mashable Mashable A Canadian design company called Fabule has developed Clyde, an LED desk lamp that can be programmed with personality modules in its "brain." It's compatible with Arduino, an open-source...
Although there are dedicated sensors to measure current - such as the Allegro Microsystems ACS712 (as used in my Power Supply Project), this article describes the more "traditional" method using a low value shunt resistor. Using a shunt provides a lot more flexibility in the current range that's available, rather than being "stuck" with the 5A or 30A ranges of the dedicated Hall Effect sensors.
