Raspberry Pi marks 2nd birthday with plan for open source graphics driver

Raspberry Pi marks 2nd birthday with plan for open source graphics driver | Arduino, Netduino, Rasperry Pi! | Scoop.it

The Raspberry Pi Foundation, with help from chipmaker Broadcom, is laying out a path toward an open source graphics driver for the tiny computer.

Broadcom today "announced the release of full documentation for the VideoCore IV graphics core, and a complete source release of the graphics stack under a 3-clause BSD license,"

I don’t know if it is the recent success of the movie but I have heard the brand Lego bandied about a lot lately. Jay Park used it to describeFacebook’s new pre-fab way of designing data centers earlier this week. And late last week I heard it used again, this time to describe a new make-your-own computer kit called Kano.

Netduino - MCP23S17 (Control board candiate #2)

I have been exploring options for developing a control board for my home automation project. I started off with the old 74HC595 shift register and I am now currently testing out the MCP23S17 GPIO expander.

So what are the difference between these two candidates?

The 74HC595 is a shift register and allows you to gain extra output ports for your netduino or other MCU. There are a few ways of doing this but I have been focusing on using SPI. SPI is fast and it means that you can even drive things like LCD displays. Each 595 has 8 outputs and you essentially load up 8 bits of information telling it which pins are high or low. They can also be chained to give you more outputs than most situations could ever need.

Arduino Blog » Blog Archive » Prototyping a pressure sensor with Arduino Micro #ArduinoMicroMonday | Arduino, Netduino, Rasperry Pi! | Scoop.it

The pressure pad doesn’t just work straight out the box – it requires a little bit of craft. What I’ve done is sandwich a pressure sensitive conductive sheet – known as Velostat – between two pieces of felt. I then stitched some conductive thread through each piece of felt – this applies a current to the pad and when the sandwich is put together, the circuit is complete. The Velostat acts like a resistor – the value changes when pressure is applied. It’s then just a case of writing out code that tells the LED to come on when the pressure reading goes over a certain threshold.

A birthday present from Broadcom | Raspberry Pi

A birthday present from Broadcom | Raspberry Pi | Arduino, Netduino, Rasperry Pi! | Scoop.it
Earlier today, Broadcom announced the release of full documentation for the VideoCore IV graphics core, and a complete source release of the graphics stack under a 3-clause BSD license. The source release targets the BCM21553 cellphone chip, but it should be reasonably straightforward to port this to the BCM2835, allowing access to the graphics core without using the blob. As an incentive to do this work, we will pay a bounty of $10,000 to the first person to demonstrate to us satisfactorily that they can successfully run Quake III at a playable framerate on Raspberry Pi using these drivers. This competition is open worldwide, and you can find competition rules here which describe what you have to do, and how to enter.
