Re: ISO GPIO pins 41-x expander

I have done some googling in an attempt to find a GPIO "expander", I am coming up with things like MCP230XX but that seems to be designed for the Pi 1. I am looking for an expander that will give me pins 41 and beyond(in total I need 65 unique [i.e. not a multiplexer] generic I/O pins) fo...

Re: IF/ELSE on GPIO pins

SOLUTION FOUND!!! Thanks to all contributors. Here is the code for posterity and future inquiries... import RPi.GPIO as GPIO import time GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM) GPIO.setwarnings(False) GPIO.setup(xa1,GPIO.OUT) GPIO.setup(xa2.GPIO.OUT) GPIO.setup(xV,GPIO.IN, pull_up_down=GPIO.PUD_DOWN) while True: if ...

Re: IF/ELSE on GPIO pins

in terminal I type sudo python test.py and the LED's switch on and off by themselves without voltage being present. Sound like you are missing a pull-down ( internal or external ) which keeps the pin reading low when no voltage is applied to pin 21. So from sourceforge GPIO.setup(channel, GPIO.IN, ...

Re: IF/ELSE on GPIO pins

while True: if GPIO.input(21): GPIO.output(18,GPIO.HIGH) GPIO.output(17,GPIO.LOW) else: GPIO.output(17,GPIO.HIGH) GPIO.output(18,GPIO.LOW) time.sleep(0.1) time.sleep(0.1) is used to reduce the CPU load. Without it the loop will push one CPU to 100%. PeterO Oddly, that didn't seem to do the trick. H...

You need to put your code into a "while True:" loop if you want it to continuously check the state of the input pin.

PeterO
Should I put "while true" before, or after declaring my variable?

Re: GPIO input voltage and Python script help

Any ideas on the python script? And Can I use any of the IO pins or are there ones designated as inputs? Maybe you missed my earlier reply? Repeated here - For the coding aspect of your query, the gpiozero python library module (installed by default with the Raspbian Operating System) has built-in ...

Re: GPIO input voltage and Python script help

That you can do. Just wait until the input pin changes to high, then change your output. Though you do know you can do that with only a resistor, an LED, and a power source, correct? No need for a Raspberry Pi in the middle. Now going from red to green will require the addition of a pull-down trans...

Re: GPIO input voltage and Python script help

And that is OK. I just want 2 states. So if there is voltage (any voltage) on pin x then change GPIO 18 from high to Low and GPIO 17 from low to high. It may not be as simple as you hope. "Any voltage' may not necessarily be interpreted as High - there is a minimum trigger level that has to be...

GPIO input voltage and Python script help

First, how (if at all) can use a GPIO pin to monitor for voltage coming in? Next, My coding skills are beginner/intermediate. If I have a 2 color LED: Green Anode on pin 17, Red Anode on pin 18, Cathode on Pin 6. The goal here is; IF voltage is found on pin x; GPIO.output(18,GPIO.LOW) GPIO.output(17...

Hello all, I am working on a project that requires some background information. I have an application only available for Windows in .exe format. The app is used to load firmware to a peripheral device, which stores the firmware on flash form memory, via USB. If I set up a Windows PC and run this app...

Re: Windows .exe application package on Raspbian

It is a program for my company and it was only built as .exe, so there isn't an equivalent. However, I remember hearing that Pi can run WinCE 6.0 which I believe can run the application. Is this a viable option?
