Its a mini HDMI decoder board! So small and simple, you can use this board as an all-in-one display driver for TTL displays, or perhaps decoding HDMI/DVI video for some other project. This breakout features the TFP401 for decoding video, and for the touch version, an AR1100 USB resistive touch screen driver.
Once you have mastered the basic blinking leds, simple sensors and buzzing motors, it’s time to move on to bigger and better projects. That usually involves combining bits and pieces of simpler sketches and trying to make them work together. The first thing you will discover is that some of those sketches that ran perfectly by themselves, just don’t play well with others. There are ways to effectively juggle multiple tasks on an Arduino. This series of guides will show you how.
The cute PiTFT got even more adorable with this little primary display for Raspberry Pi in HAT form! It features a 2.2" display with 320x240 16-bit color pixels. The HAT uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video etc. Best of all it plugs right in on top of your Model A+ or B+ and fits into our case quite nicely.
NeoPixel LEDs are the bee's knees, but in a few scenarios they come up short…connecting odd microcontrollers that can’t match their strict timing, or fast-moving persistence-of-vision displays. Adafruit DotStar strips deliver high speed PWM and an easy-to-drive two-wire interface, bridging the gaps in the spectrum of awesome.
The Raspberry Pi is a wonderful little computer, but one thing it isn't very good at is controlling DC Servo Motors - these motors need very specific and repetitive timing pulses to set the position. Instead of asking the Pi Linux kernel to send these signals, pop on this handy HAT or Bonnet! They bot add the capability to control 16 Servos with perfect timing. They can also do PWM up to 1.6 KHz with 12 bit precision, all completely free-running.
Digital RGB LEDs like the Neopixel are greatfor creating awesome lighting effects. But keeping them responsive to user inputs at the same time can be challenging. And what if you want to have different parts of your project animated in different ways? In this guide, we'll explore techniques to make your pixel patterns lively, flexible and responsive.
Infrared LEDs and receivers can be a great way to control a robot will create a home automation system but you need a library to simplify the coding process. In this tutorial we will give a brief explanation of how IR remotes work and show you how to use the IRLib library which makes it easy to send, receive, and decode IR signals.
