Re: Device which shuts down the Raspberry Pi if Voltage is l

Instead of monitoring the Pi's 5V or 3V3 rail, I'd monitor the raw battery voltage (divided down to something an analog input on an ADC or microcontroller can read) and write a daemon to do a shutdown when the battery voltage drops too low. Well, to be honest, in my project I don't need a big accura...

Re: Small Screen for Pi?

Do you mean the flex cable connection? I am not aware of support for that yet.

Many have used the Pi with small NSTC/PAL and hdmi monitors.

Re: Can we come up with a Standard Plug/Socket for I2C

The I2C pin out I use on my existing (and future) products is: 3v3 SDA SCL GND A number of people are developing I/O devices - some directly using I2C straight out of the GPIO pins but others are building boards and then expsoing I2C pins so that further devices can be added. I was wondering if we c...

Re: "official" dimensioned drawing

Thanks Jon! I checked the RS Components site - a lot of good information there. I did not explore that site before as I am in Canada and buy Pi's from Element14/Newark. Unfortunately the files for the proto board are off-line. I found some Eagle files on Adafruit, however they cannot be read by my E...

"official" dimensioned drawing

Hi Guys, I've been having a blast with my Pi's, and it is time for me to make some boards for the Pi... After quite a bit of Googling, I've found some unofficial dimensions, png's, etc., and an official schematic... BUT I can't seem to find an official dimensioned drawing showing "official" mounting...

Re: RaspBerry Pi(e) Model C (imaginations & wants)

Regarding a possible model C, the cost should be kept low, which limits what can reasonably be added I've been having a blast playing with my pi's, but I have run into some limitations - which could easily be solved with more USB ports. 1) Lack of WiFi: it is easy to add a dongle, but that leaves on...

Re: Vancouver Canada

I am located in Langley, BC :D

Just received my pi's yesterday, so I have been downloading today... and joining the forum.

I wanted to try the pi's as tiny, low power Linux boxes.
