  • Controlling the LED on a raspberry pi through CoDeSys


    Here, in this blog, I have shared step-by-step how to switch on the LED connected with one raspberry pi from operating the switch on another raspberry pi connected on the same network through CoDeSys. I will explain every step in details and hope that people starting with codesys in raspberry pi will get a nice insight how the things work.


    • Portrait of an Inventor: Pi-Top's Jesse Lozano


      We recently caught up with co-founder and maker Jesse Lozano to discuss his journey creating Pi-Tops, and his drive is to help make STEM based curricular more stimulating as part of the RS Components ‘Portrait of an Inventor’ YouTube series.


      • Raspberry PI and Arduino in industrial environments


        Raspberry PI and Arduino boards are the most famous devices for rapid electronic prototyping and DIY home applications. However, their capabilities and flexibility are still largely under estimated in the industrial environment.


        • ZX Spectrum v Raspberry Pi – The view of an 80’s kid


          At the risk of showing my age, my very first personal computer was the Sinclair ZX81, in the early 1980’s, back in the last century! I can still remember my excitement at getting my hands on this new electronic gadget and being able to play some basic games, and to create some really simple programs such as printing my name over and over again on the my small 12” portable black and white TV screen.


          • As easy as Pi - Setting up a Raspberry Pi media centre


            So when I recently found myself with a spare TV for my study, but with no aerial connection in the room, it gave me a great opportunity to enter the world of Pi and create myself a media centre. Initially I was concerned that it might be complicated to get setup, but I needn’t have worried – it was as easy as Pi and so I wanted to share my experience to show just how simple it is.


            • Batman’s Raspberry Pi Hack, true Internet of Things?


              Ok so you got this far, kudos. We all get a bit of a tizzy on when batman flashes tech across the big screen, or your hand held device, and start thinking “could that happen, how do you make one of those?” and start to lose the plot. And we have all spent time with a Pi or Arduino ( other boards are available) trying to change some basics, but maybe we are looking through the wrong end of the telescope app.
