Re: Gadget Mode and OTG? (RPi Zero)

Just an update. Works as expected with the Pi Zero.

Ethernet over USB is enabled. I can plug it into a host PC and it works. And I can unplug it, and use a keyboard with an OTG adapter.

Perfect!

Re: Gadget Mode and OTG? (RPi Zero)

The Zero does not have an autosensing USB Port. AFAIK the ID pin is connected and active on the Zero. You can force it into gadget mode, but doesn't it normally switch automatically? It does when it boots. Yeh I've seen something about the RPi having a pin the A doesn't. So in theory, if I were to ...

.dtb file for ili9325 supporting 8-bit parallel bus?

I think this is the right section. I'm trying to connect a 240x320 TFT LCD module to my pi. I think it's mainly designed for Arduino, but i was hoping to get it working on pi.. I have found notro's fbtft repo which in theory had support for the ili9325 IC my module uses: https://github.com/notro/fbt...

Gadget Mode and OTG? (RPi Zero)

Hello, this is possibly a stupid question - but is it possible to enable ethernet via gadget mode for the raspberry pi zero (w) and still be able to use it for peripherals with the normal OTG adapters? Obviously I am not expecting them to work simultaneously (although I am keen to know more if there...

Re: Pin Headers for status LED's and Possible Power Switch?

power LED indicator (LED + resistor) could be done via the 5V or 3V3 GPIO power pins. Have you considered using light pipe tubing of some sort? Hi klricks, I hadn't considered powering a power LED from one of the GPIO pins. That could work. I had considered the possibilty of light pipes but the int...

Could 2xNoIR = Leap like sensing?

I'm wondering if it might be plausible to create a set up using two raspberrry pi's and two NoIR camera boards, some IR lights of some type, and a bit of clever programming to create low-resolution, LEAP Motion like gesture sensing? The two pi's could be linked together with an ethernet cable and co...

Alternatively, have a smaller label printer print out a code or something, so that the person can find the photo. If it's at a ...

It also means that if I plan to use a monitor, then I will need a longer RCA/HDMI cable since the pi will be located much further from the monitor in that case. Depending on your use case, and what kind of distances we are talking about, you could run the pi headless (no monitor) and put it in the ...

Re: Max Number of Push Buttons?

Fantastic. 72 buttons should keep me happy for quite some time. And the 24 buttons only need to be pushed one button at a time, so even better. Using a 5x5 matrix to give me 24 buttons using 10 pins would leave me the remaining 7 pins for other uses, right?
