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. 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.
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. Atanua - About The Atanua UI Atanua is a real-time logic simulator, designed to help in learning of basic boolean logic and electronics. It uses OpenGL hardware-accelerated rendering and a custom UI designed for a fast workflow and a very low learning curve, letting the students concentrate on learning the subject instead of spending time learning the tool. See the interactive flash demo! See the Atanua Google+ page!
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. 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.
Mele A1000 is a $70 hackable, Linuxfriendly ARMbased PC The Raspberry Pi folks have been getting a lot of attention for their $35 PC with an ARM-based processor and support for some open source software. But as the cost of computer components continues to drop, the Raspberry Pi is hardly the only inexpensive PC capable of running Linux. The Mele A1000 is a system that sells for $70 and up and which features a number of components that the Raspberry Pi lacks — including a SATA port, a case, and a faster processor. Build your own CCTV system with Zoneminder The three main reasons for surveillance are security, safety and nosiness. Whether you need a visual check on a sleeping baby, or a video of a stranger putting your cat in a wheelie bin, Zoneminder fits the bill. Zoneminder is a sophisticated camera manager, including support for multiple image sources, motion detection, email alerts, and X10 automation. It supports most V4L (Video for Linux) devices, and can control network IP cameras.
Wiring Update: 14th May, 2013 wiringPi version 2 has been released and now has its own website ( to look after it. Most of the documentation on the projects site has been copied over to it the new site, but there may still be 1 or 2 pages that are still missing. Gaming Case Roundup > Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 cont. Both case doors feature an interesting pattern and the left side has an oddly shaped case window along with a huge intake fan. The left panel also has a small fold-out latch in the top right corner to hold your headphones. The Chaser MK-1 stands on four massive feet that lift it 35mm off the ground and can rotate out at a 90-degree angle for greater stability. wiringpi 1.0.5 A python interface to WiringPi library which allows for easily interfacing with the GPIO pins of the Raspberry Pi. Also supports i2c and SPI WiringPi: An implementation of most of the Arduino Wiring functions for the Raspberry Pi Prerequisites:
LG Smart TVs logging USB filenames and viewing info to LG servers Earlier this month I discovered that my new LG Smart TV was displaying ads on the Smart landing screen. After some investigation, I found a rather creepy corporate video (since removed, mirror here) advertising their data collection practices to potential advertisers. It's quite long but a sample of their claims are as follows: Raspberry Pi Pinout 3v3 Power The 3v3, 3.3 volt, supply pin on the Pi has a max current draw of 50 mA, enough to power a couple of LEDs but not much more. You should use the 5v0 supply instead, and use a regulator if you need 3v3. BCM pin 0 on Rev 1 board and pin 2 on Rev 2 board.
Elite Gaming Computers “The most revered of all mythical creatures, the winged-horse, Pegasus, has been one of man’s most trusted allies against dark and evil forces for a long time. A divine being, fathered by Poseidon, and of the same blood as Medusa, Pegasus holds a high place amongst the Gods. And, if Zeus trusts the noblest of all horses with the burden of carrying his own thunderbolts, then imagine what you can do with Pegasus by your side!”” Overview At $2,000 you can’t ask for much more out of a gaming computer. For a single-GPU gaming computer, this setup is about as powerful as it gets.
