I have read that using clean white sand in the bottom of the s...

Re: No fix on u-blox neo 6m

Ilf, thank you for reviving this post. I actually could not resolve the issue. Even changed the LDO for two maple mini clones with no results, but never tried removing the breadboard from the equation. I'll give it a try today so we can have a larger sample of results. ... There is not an issue wit...

Re: FYI. I'm applying loads of changes to the master branch

... and thus the evolution of the STM32'duino core marches forward like time itself.

Datalogging: Raspberry Pi and Arduino HID - great pair!

Over a rainy and lazy weekend, I pulled out some old Arduino HID prototypes and plugged 'em into my RPi Zero-W. Works better than I would have thought.

Using HID to connect Arduino output to RPi for data-logging

Re: Good "Getting Started" tutorial for bootloader install, etc.

This is a very comprehensive tutorial that covers pretty much every way to get a bootloader on an STM32! Very well illustrated, with step-by-step instructions: http://ht-deko.com/arduino/stm32f103c8t6.html It is in Japanese, but google Translate does a pretty good job! ;) ... links to generic stuff...

Re: "Driverless" CDC-serial?

Ya, more like a group of friends and club members at large that might want the device, not at all "mass production"! ;) It's just if you start talking about driver downloads (particularly for devices used in the field), the end-user's eyes can glaze over and they lose interest! :) Making up VID/PID...

Re: New RPi Zero W - with Wifi and Bluetooth

You can also get some OrangePiZero for less than $8.00 including shipping, but no BT. IMHO (well, as humble as I can get), anyway you shake it, Bluetooth is easily worth $2. Just having a BT connection for a keyboard/mouse is extremely handy and avoids having to have a USB-serial adapter connected ...

Re: New RPi Zero W - with Wifi and Bluetooth

For reasons I wont bore you with, I have been looking at open source android builds recently, and I came across a LineageOS ( Open Source Android) build for the RPI 3, which works quite well, albeit a bit slow. <...> Roger, I'm sure you know that the Raspberry line of boards are quasi-Open Source; ...

The founder of the local makerspace Arron Newcomb just wrote a book for Arduino users who want to use Linux on single board computers such as the Raspberry pi. It is called Make: Linux for makers ISBN 9781680451832 http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920031338.do Thank you. I'll check it out. This ...

Re: New RPi Zero W - with Wifi and Bluetooth

Had to get a mouse out as the touchscreen was hard to use. Needed a keyboard to type commands in. I was able to run a java app. Been there! Having a USB mouse and USB keyboard within reasonable reach is absolutely necessary with the Raspberry line. For days, I would go in the junk closet, grab the ...
