Logic Level Shifter using 2N7000

2N7000 logic level shifter

The 2N7000 and BS170 are N-channel, enhancement-mode MOSFETs used for low-power switching applications. The two are nearly identical except that the leads are arranged differently and the current ratings are somewhat different; they are sometimes listed together on the same datasheet, along with other variants 2N7002, VQ1000J, and VQ1000P.The 2N7000 is a widely available and popular part, often recommended as useful and common components to have around for hobbyist use, along with such other popular discrete semiconductors as the 1N4148 and 1N4001 diodes; the 2N2222, 2N3904, and 2N3906 bipolar junction…

Access Raspberry Pi on Smartphone using VNC | RealVNC

VNC

RealVNC: Remotely accessing Raspberry Pi Graphical Interface using smart phone. For this I have used VNC. In computing, Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a graphical desktop sharing system that uses the Remote Frame Buffer protocol (RFB) to remotely control another computer. It transmits the keyboard and mouse events from one computer to another, relaying the graphical screen updates back in the other direction, over a network.VNC is platform-independent – there are clients and servers for many GUI-based operating systems and for Java. Multiple clients may connect to a VNC server…

Connecting ESP8266 with Raspberry PI

ESP8266

                                    Connecting the ESP8266 Wi-Fi module to Raspberry Pi.The ESP8266 is a low-cost Wi-Fi chip with full TCP/IP stack and microcontroller capability produced by Shanghai-based Chinese manufacturer, Espressif Systems. The chip first came to the attention of western makers in August 2014 with the ESP-01 module, made by a third-party manufacturer, AI-Thinker. This small module allows microcontrollers to connect to a Wi-Fi network and make simple TCP/IP connections using Hayes-style commands. However, at the time there was almost no English-language documentation on the chip and the commands it accepted.The very…

Raspbian Jessie | PIXEL | SEP-2016 Release | Explore

Raspbian is a free operating system based on Debian optimized for the Raspberry Pi hardware. An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your Raspberry Pi run. However, Raspbian provides more than a pure OS: it comes with over 35,000 packages, pre-compiled software bundled in a nice format for easy installation on your Raspberry Pi. The initial build of over 35,000 Raspbian packages, optimized for best performance on the Raspberry Pi, was completed in June of 2012. However, Raspbian is still under active development with…
