Maker PI PICO, een mooi basestation voor de microcontroller Raspberry PI PICO

De microcontroller Raspberry PI PICO is de eerste microcontroller van de Raspberry PI Foundation en bevat tevens een eigen ontwikkeld System-On-Soc, de RP2040. Er is al veel geschreven over deze microcontroller, voor meer details: zie de Getting Started pagina.  Er zijn diverse SDK’s (software development kits) waarmee de microcontroller geprogrammeerd kan worden: MicroPython (pdf),  CircuitPython, […]

project Weatherstation: intermezzo -hardware considerations

As written in previous episode, the weatherstation contains WeMOS D1 mini and several mini-shields. Each shield communicates with the ESP8266 via GPIO-pins. Tabel 1 summaries which WeMOS mini pins (D1.. D8) are used by WeMOS shields. I also added some RobotDyn-shields, which I intent to use. Table 1 shields comptability We see the Buzzer shield […]

Weatherstation built with ESP8266 and MicroPython

I’ll start a series of articles about the making of a weatherstation. A weatherstation is a perfect project for starters, and you can make it as complex as you wanted. For me, it is also a focus to learn MicroPython. My intended audience are those who want to learn MicroPython to control microcontrollers, such as […]
