For this post I am looking at the Model B+ board, which is an all-around improved design over the original Model B. The B+ retains basic compatibility with the B, including the same CPU, GPU and memory, and it still runs the same software. But it has the following improvements:
This page shows some of the many projects that have been created using the .NET Micro Framework. You can find additional videos on the GHI Electronics and Secret Labssites. A YouTube search for "NETMF" or ".NET Micro Framework" will also yield a large number of projects. Let us know if you have a project that you would like to share.
Disclaimer: This is just a small sample of projects to begin to show some of possibilities enabled by the .NET Micro Framework. The videos were independently created and highlighting them on the NETMF.com website does not constitute endorsement, recommendation, or favoring by the .NET Micro Framework team.
[Greg] implemented a simple ray tracer for Arduino as a fun exercise and a way to benchmark the processor. He started out with the Moller-Trumbore algorithm, a common ray-tracing algorithm that calcul...
The easiest way to connect a GSM module to a Raspberry Pi would be to buy a breakout module, install some software, and connect to a mobile network with a Pi. Need GPS, too? That's a whole other modul...
Currently, the setup around my flat consists of two wireless sensors nodes and one main node. I decided to build the wireless sensors nodes upon Arduino Nano board. The core of Arduino Nano board is ATmega328P microcontroller (datasheet). Apart from MCU, this board has FTDI USB-to-TTL Serial chip which enables MCU to communicate with other serial enabled devices (like PC), thus simplifying development and debugging process. Each wireless sensor node has a nRF24L01 transceiver for wireless communication. These chips are quite cheap and can be found in two designs (module with built in antenna and module with power amplifier and SMA antenna). With appropriate sensors attached to the Arduino Nano board, these nodes can transmit the readings from sensors to the main node over free 2.4 GHz band. Additionally, I wanted to see the current readings when I am near sensors so I added the possibility to stick 2x16 LCD to the wireless sensor node.
Coder is an experiment for Raspberry Pi, built by a small team of Googlers in New York. It converts a Raspberry Pi into a friendly environment for learning web programming. It is ideal for beginners and requires absolutely no experience with coding.
