RPi GPIO Programming using Arduino Web IDE

RPi GPIO Programming using Arduino Web IDE

Recently Arduino has launched support for programming ARM-based SBCs by using the Arduino web editor and Raspberry Pi is one of the SBCs in the list. This video is all about the basic setup to get started with the programming of the Raspberry Pi GPIOs by using Arduino codes. The setup is pretty simple and will help you if you are more comfortable in the Arduino ecosystem as compared to python. More depth functionalities are yet to be checked.

CRC16 using JAVA

CRC16 using JAVA

CRC codes are numerously used for error checking purposes. So many times working around Embedded Devices you will find CRC used in different communication protocols for error detection. This piece of code will help you to generate CRC16 using provided packets in JAVA. While working on devices like Raspberry Pi which supports JAVA and industrial protocols like MODBUS which uses CRC16, this code can be used.

Send/Receive data using BLE and MBED | BBC Microbit

BLE Microbit

This video is all about sending and receiving data between BBC Microbit and any BLE enabled smart phone. Over here I have used C/C++ (MBED) as the programming language as other language (Python/JavaScript) don’t support UART data transfer service.

Fetching data from server | Arduino/ESP8266

Arduino on ESP8266

Arduino/ESP8266: Fetching data to Server (LOCAL and Online) using WifiClient on from the ESP8266 module using Arduino IDE. 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 low price and the fact that there were very few external…

Storing configuration data for JAVA applications

programming

    Many times it is required to store some configuration settings for your application so that it can use again and again from where it left. Or the application can start with some specific parameters. The properties file can come in handy in such requirements. First, let’s write something to the properties file.   Code: import java.io.FileOutputStream; import java.io.IOException; import java.io.OutputStream; import java.util.Properties; public class App {   public static void main(String[] args) {     Properties prop = new Properties();     OutputStream output = null;     try {        …
