Asus Brings Its Tinker Board To North America

Previously available only overseas, the Asus Tinker Board is a single-board computer powered by a 1.8GHz Rockchip RK3288 quad-core processor and 2GB of dual-channel LPDDR3. The 85.60 x 56 x 21mm device features 1Gb Ethernet, a Mali-T764 GPU with HD/UHD video playback support, H.264/H.265 decoding, 192kHz/24-bit audio support, four USB 2.0 ports, Bluetooth 4.0, and built-in 802.11b/g/n WiFi. Despite its credit card-sized package, the Asus Tinker Board packs as much power as many Chromebooks. Enterprising enthusiasts and hobbyists have made use of single-board computers for gaming emulators, robotics, car computers, HTPC media streaming, mini web browsers, file storage servers, cloud servers, home automation--the list goes on and on. All that power in such a tiny package means the possibilities to create personalized devices are endless. The included TinkerOS is a Linux distribution based on the latest Debian 9 core. A coin-sized Linux computer with wifi.

All-You-Need Mini PC Android + Linux + Arduino. Category : Development Tools. Acme Systems srl - Linux Embedded CPU modules. Windows Tools for the Electrical Engineer. An I2C Tutorial. This I2C tutorial shows you how the I2C protocol works at the physical bit level discussing single master mode (a single controlling device) which is the most common use for I2C in a small system.

An I2C Tutorial.

I²C (pronounced I-squared-C) created by Philips Semiconductors and commonly written as 'I2C' stands for Inter-Integrated Circuit and allows communication of data between I2C devices over two wires. It sends information serially using one line for data (SDA) and one for clock (SCL). Note: You can find Master mode soft I2C routines in the RTC project.

Variable Tapered Pot? Parts. How-to: Bus Pirate v1, improved universal serial interface. We use the Bus Pirate to interface a new chip without writing code or designing a PCB.

How-to: Bus Pirate v1, improved universal serial interface

Based on your feedback, and our experience using the original Bus Pirate to demonstrate various parts, we updated the design with new features and cheaper components. There’s also a firmware update for both Bus Pirate hardware versions, with bug fixes, and a PC AT keyboard decoder. Check out the new Hack a Day Bus Pirate page, and browse the Bus Pirate source code in our Google code SVN repository. We cover the design updates and interface a digital to analog converter below.

Raspberry stuff. Software Selection - Getting Started. Software Selection Most hobbyist and commercial users, as well as some educational users, program the PICAXE chip using the easy to learn BASIC language.

Software Selection - Getting Started

This language is designed to allow users without any formal programming experience to be able to quickly and simply develop PICAXE microcontroller programs. PICAXE BASIC is much simpler to learn (and to 'debug') than traditional microcontroller languages such as assembler code or 'C'. The software for BASIC programming is completely free and available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Windows users should select the PICAXE EditorMac and Linux users should select AXEpad The PICAXE Editor software also includes a very useful on-screen simulation mode, where programs can be tested and ‘stepped through’ before downloading to the chip. Education Most educational users in high schools use the flowchart programming method, using the award winning ‘Logicator for PICAXE’ or PICAXE Editor 6 flowcharting software.

How to Choose the Right Platform: Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black?

There are already many articles out there comparing Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and BeagleBone Black; this is not one of those articles. I believe it is clear that Arduino is in a different league than the Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black, and serves an entirely different purpose. What I was looking for and couldn’t find was a comprehensive article that would summarize all of the pros and cons of the Raspberry Pi and the BeagleBone Black, and what each platform is best suited for. When I couldn’t find that article, I decided to write it myself.

MIDIsense. This photo has notes.

MIDIsense

Move your mouse over the photo to see them. MIDIsense is a simple, yet extensible sensor interface system for artists, musicians and others interested in experimenting with sensors. The MIDIsense boards provide a simple way to integrate various common sensors with existing software such as Max/MSP, Ableton Live, etc. or directly to a synthesizer/sequencer with a MIDI in jack.
