  • Porting NeoPixels to the Arduino Portenta

    Part of my project with the Arduino Portenta requires some lighting and I wanted to be able to individually control them. I asked a model railroad mate and he suggested NeoPixels. They only require 3 wires, run on 5v and can be controlled from a rang…
  • SatNOGS automatic satellite tracking antenna rotator

    Since December 2020, I've been dabbling in satellite communications.I've successfully captured SSTV images, FM and APRS data from the International Space Station.Most of this was accomplished using a handheld transceiver and portable Yagi ant...
  • Portenta H7 Vision Shield

    From my previous experiments with the Portenta H7, I had installed a multi-core version of blink with one core flashing green and the other blue. I was keen to know if the M4 core would still boot if I loaded MicroPython code on the M7 core. I c...

  • Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect - MQTT

    I wanted to test connecting the Nano RP2040 Connect to my RPi4 MQTT server by publishing temperature and humidity data from a BME280 sensor.  I figured that this should be fairly easy since I've already used the BME280 with another RP2040 bo...
  • Vidor4000 CAN-Bus Project

    Master Plan: Plug a CAN-Bus MKR Shield onto Arduino 4000 and read car's OBD-II data so it could be displayed on an HDMI screen in graphical form. What could be simpler, it should only take 10 minutes to bolt together one of the many CAN-bus examples…
