Program Arduino on your Raspberry Pi

Author: LXer Linux News | Files under syndicated

You can interface a Raspberry Pi with Arduino components – now learn how to program them from the Pi and control robots like the Makeblock. Learning to code is one of the best things about owning a Raspberry Pi for a lot of people. Python and C are easy enough to start with on the Pi and you can get great results in a short time. When it comes to physical computing and making, though, not much beats using the Arduino IDE to control the open source controllers, servos and sensors associated with the system. Once set up, we can also use the Pi to program the Makeblock robot we reviewed in issue 142 of Linux User & Developer, using either the built-in commands or your own code.

Author: LXer Linux News | Files under syndicated

Technologic released a fast-booting headless PC/104-expandable SBC, running Debian on a PXA16x SoC, and with a Lattice FPGA and wide temperature operation. The TS-7250-V2 SBC provides an upgrade path for customers using the circa-2004 TS-7250 or circa-2006 TS-7260 single board computers, says Technologic Systems. The PC/104 form-factor board offers a choice of the 1GHz, ARM9-based PXA-168 processor, which is also found on Technologic’s recent TS-4740 computer-on-module, or the similar, 800MHz PXA166, both part of Marvell’s Armada 100 series.
