Information Display System using WeMOS and MAX7219

MAX2219_Dot matrix

This tutorial is all about making a WiFi-based information display system. This system is built around ESP8266 but not the standalone ESP8266 instead WeMOS is used and programmed using Arduino IDE. So In this video, we will check out how to make an information display system like that using Wemos and MAX7219 based dot matrix display modules. The display system fetches data from the local/online server and displays the received. In this system, u can display any data that you want and that’s up to you however over here I…

IIC (I2C) Communication on Raspberry Pi by using JAVA

MCP23017 with raspberry Pi using I2C Communication

This tutorial is all about IIC (I2C) communication on Raspberry Pi by using JAVA and for that, I have used Pi4J library. To demonstrate this in the tutorial I have used MCP23017 Port expander IC with Raspberry Pi. MCp23017 is a 16 Bit input/output Port Expander ICcomes with I2C Interface. To interact with the IC suing IIC (I2C) port  here we have used Pi4J and JAVA. MCP23017 Features: 16-bit input/output port expander with interrupt output Cascadable for up to 8 devices on one bus 25mA sink/source capability per I/O Supports 100kHz, 400kHz,…

Thermocouple Interfacing usng MAX31855 | Raspberry Pi

Thermocouple Interfacing usng MAX31855 | JAVA & Pi4J| Raspberry Pi

Reading thermocouple data on Raspberry Pi using JAVA and Pi4J with the help of MAX31855 14 bit thermocouple to digital converter. The MAX31855 performs cold-junction compensation and digitizes the signal from a K-, J-, N-, T-, S-, R-, or E-type thermocouple. The data is output in a signed 14-bit, SPI-compatible, read-only format. This converter resolves temperatures to 0.25°C, allows readings as high as +1800°C and as low as -270°C, and exhibits thermocouple accuracy of ±2°C for temperatures ranging from -200°C to +700°C for K-type thermocouples.
