Sergey Kiselev designed this I2S Audio pHAT:
This is a Raspberry Pi Zero pHAT form-factor I2S audio interface board based on a Cirrus Logic (Wolfson) WM8731 audio codec. It provides line input, line output, headphones output, and includes an on-board microphone.
Sean Hodgins designed this open source balancing robot to help teach PID control:
The PIDDYBOT is currently using a Atmega32u4 microncontroller. It uses 3 potentiometers that allow you to manually tune the PID loop to get the robot balancing. This allows you to see how each term affects the performance of the system. It is a great teaching tool for the classroom and is currently being used by students at McMaster University.
The design files and source code is available on GitHub:
The Idea CC1101 is a cheap, sophisticated and small transceiver which works in different frequencies: 315, 433, 868, and 915 MHz, but can easily be programmed for operation at other frequencies 300-348 MHz, 387-464 MHz and 779-928 MHz. If we compare it with other transceivers in the market, the low cost is enormous. Mainly, the […]
