arducopter - Arduino-based autopilot for mulitrotor craft, from quadcopters to traditional helis The DIY Drones development team is proud to bring you the ultimate open source quadcopter and helicopter UAV! ArduCopter's autopilot is based on APM 2, the most sophisticated IMU-based open source autopilot on the market. It provides full UAV functionality, with scripted waypoints, Ground Station and more. Advanced GCS Waypoints! See the Wiki manual linked above for full details and instructions. Sample video: GPS position and altitude hold See some other ArduCopter videos here! Order ArduCopter kits and parts here or buy them ready-to-fly here. ArduCopter Platform Feature List

Fritzing - default Spec. : SD Memory Card Choices Hundreds of manufacturers have built thousands of memory cards and devices to SD standards. Memory cards come in a variety of storage capacities, speed classes and three different physical sizes -- SD memory card, miniSD memory card, and microSD memory card. With so many choices, it’s important to understand which SD memory card works best with your mobile phones, tablets, personal computers, video cameras, digital cameras and other electronics devices. To determine the right card to match your device, always consult the device's user manual or contact the manufacturer. If your device supports video recording, it’s important to understand your Speed Class choices. *SD, SDHC and SDXC are trademarks or registered trademarks of SD-3C in the United States, other countries or both.

Monitor program for Arduino in Japanese [ArduinoConf][ArduinoMonitor][iArduino] Abstract You can control Arduino's pins by ArdunoMonitor and watch changes on pins. This is useful for debugging your hardware before you write a sketch. Before you begin Place iArduino folder into your libaries folder of your Arduino folder. Start ArduinoMonitor Connect Arduino and PC, then execute ArduinoMonitor. The connection is terminated by clicking ``Disconnect'' button. Changing pin modes and values Select the usage of the pins from pull down menu on the side of the pin. Converting analog value If you check ``show in voltage'', the values of analog pins are show in voltage rather than direct value. Logging It starts logging in CSV format by clicking ``Start Log'' button. Displaying a graph It shows a graph window by clicking ``Graph'' button. It stops updates of the graph by clickng ``Stop'' button. Saving and loading a configuration It saves and loads configuration in XML format by clicking ``Save'' and ``Load'' buttons. Example sketch

RPi.GPIO 0.4.1a A module to control Raspberry Pi GPIO channels This package provides a class to control the GPIO on a Raspberry Pi. Note that this module is unsuitable for real-time or timing critical applications. This is because you can not predict when Python will be busy garbage collecting. It also runs under the Linux kernel which is not suitable for real time applications - it is multitasking O/S and another process may be given priority over the CPU, causing jitter in your program. Note that the current release does not support SPI, I2C, PWM or serial functionality on the RPi yet. Example Usage : 0.4.1a Added VERSION Permit input() of channels set as outputs (Eric Ptak < >) 0.4.0a Added support for Revision 2 boards Added RPI_REVISION Added cleanup() function and removed automatic reset functionality on program exit Added get_function() to read existing GPIO channel functionality (suggestion from Eric Ptak < >) Added set_rising_event() Added set_falling_event() 0.3.1a

Rikomagic, l'achat high-tech en toute sérénité The Art of Development | Software, hardware development all-in-one Cubieboard Cubieboard is a small (10x6cm), hacker friendly, extendable and very low-cost while powerful ARM board with Allwinner A10 SoC. The board helpfully reads "Cubietech" "" and has an A10 chip on it. :) Current status The cubieboard is well represented within the main sunxi developer community and has excellent support both in u-boot as well as 3.4 and mainline kernels. Images Cubietech also has a bunch of official firmwares available on their download page. HW-Pack Generating a HW pack for the cubieboard is easily done with the sunxi-bsp and well supported. Under the BSP the cubieboard is simply known as cubieboard. . Manual build specifics For building u-boot, use the "Cubieboard" target.The .fex file can be found in sunxi-boards as cubieboard.fex Everything else is the same as the manual build howto. FEL mode The FEL button triggers FEL mode. Hardware Hacking Software Hacking DEVICE UART pads There is a nice 2.54mm pin header near to the SoC. Cubieboard Community Other links

Acer Iconia Tab W500 Test, prix et avis du Iconia Tab W500 Comparatif : choisir sa tablette tactile connectée Dans la jungle naissante des tablettes tactiles, Acer a jugé bon de ne pas trop différencier ses références. C'est ainsi que nous nous retrouvons aujourd'hui avec deux tablettes du constructeur taïwanais dont les noms sont Iconia Tab A500, testée et approuvée par Les (+) Numériques, et notre patient du jour, l'Iconia Tab W500. Et pourtant, cette lettre de différence implique un lourd changement, le passage d'Android à Windows 7. Acer joue donc la carte de l'OS d'ordinateur sur produit mobile. L'architecture change radicalement puisque l'Iconia Tab W500 s'équipe d'un processeur AMD C-50 cadencé à 1GHz et non d'un cœur de type ARM, d'une touche Windows pour lancer le menu démarrer, d'une capacité mémoire de 32 Go, de 2 Go de mémoire vive et de la version Premium du système d'exploitation Windows 7.

RPiconfig As the Raspberry Pi doesn't have a conventional BIOS, the various system configuration parameters that would normally be kept and set using the BIOS are now stored in a text file named "config.txt". The Raspberry Pi config.txt file is read by the GPU before the ARM core is initialized. This file is an optional file on the boot partition. To edit the configuration file, see the instructions at R-Pi_ConfigurationFile. You can get your current active settings with the following commands: vcgencmd get_config <config> - lists a specific config value. The format is "property=value" where value is an integer. Note: In the newer Raspberry Pi models there is # before every line, if you want changes to have an affect then 'uncomment' meaning remove the #. Here is an example file And here is another example file, containing extended documentation of features. disable_l2cache disable ARM access to GPU's L2 cache. gpu_mem GPU memory in megabyte.
