A Comprehensive Raspberry Pi 3 Benchmark. Part 1
A Comprehensive Raspberry Pi 3 Benchmark. Part 1
06.23.2016 · Articles · Microcontrollers
Our good friend biglesp put the Raspberry Pi 2 to the test the last time around, though I feel that he missed a good number of possible benchmarks to run on the hardware. With that in mind, I'm going to test the main boards of the Raspberry Pi that I can get my hands on and not only run the main benchmarks Les ran, but also a good few more thanks to Roy Longbottom's benchmark collection. I also have some approximate information on idle power usage, which everyone appears to be interested in...
STMicroelectronics and Arduino Launch Cooperation to Expand Maker-Community Access to STM32 MCUs and Sensors
STMicroelectronics and Arduino Launch Cooperation to Expand Maker-Community Access to STM32 MCUs and Sensors
06.22.2016 · News · Microcontrollers
Moving to enable makers to make even more than before, STMicroelectronics , a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, and Arduino , the world’s leading open-source ecosystem for Education, Maker, and IoT markets, today announced an agreement that brings the industry-leading STM32 family of microcontrollers, along with ST’s full portfolio of sensing, power, and connectivity technology, even closer to the Arduino maker community...
Create 16x16 LED Displays with Flexible Reference Design
Create 16x16 LED Displays with Flexible Reference Design
06.15.2016 · News · Microcontrollers
Hobbyists and makers now have more flexibility and options when developing LED signs, using the MAXREFDES99# 16×16 display reference design from Maxim Integrated Products. LEDs continue to dramatically transform signage and lighting. However, often LED displays today are 8×8 and cannot communicate many international alpha-numeric characters. MAXREFDES99# integrates four MAX7219 LED drivers to provide designers a 16×16 display with 256 LEDs, allowing them to create signs in multiple languages...

To proceed in subsequent operations, use RaspberryPi in terminal mode, the two SSH and SCP windows open and root login. Connect the RPY connector of the shield to the GPIO RaspberryPi connector and give voltage. Now we shall activate the I2C and SPI management modules (drivers in the Windows world) or just one of the two, depending on your needs...

Review: Microchip Curiosity is a gorgeous new 8-bit dev board
05.03.2016 · Articles · Microcontrollers
Microchip has unveiled a new dev board called the Curiosity Development Board. I had my first look at this at Bay Area Maker Faire back in May but was asked not to publicize the hardware since it wasn’t officially released yet. Yesterday I got my hands on one of the first “pilot program” demo units and spent some time working with it...
