Re: Raspberry pi 4 sold out?

The 4 gig model is the one I want and its out of stock at the usual places I buy from. I'm not at all interested in buying a kit with extra stuff I don't need or want so I'll just have to wait it out until new stock arrives. :x

Re: Surprised to see you promoting W10

At one time I could legally download Windows 10 on Arm via my My Visual Studio Enterprise subscription (formally MSDN). That same option is now gone from the latest Windows 10 ISO downloads. I never really figured out if it was there by accident or on purpose? You had to go hunting to find it. I dow...

I'm personally very happy that they broke the $35 price point. I do not mind spending more to get more. I may not need 4 gigs of RAM but I want it. :P :D

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Thread - general discussion

I'm thinking on a question right now : as its name self indicates, a HAT add-on is attached on top. But with the CPU reaching 80°C, may is there a potential problem regarding some HAT ? Will it be more safe for HAT designers to add a cutout window square above the CPU in order to let a eventual hea...

Re: RP3B+ seem to have died

If you have another 3B+, I would do up a fresh Raspbian install and boot it up on the working 3B+. Then do a sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade. Once thats all done on the working Pi swap that card in the troublesome Pi 3B+ and see what happens. What OS were you running on that Pi when it ...

Re: RP3B+ seem to have died

If it is booting on at least 1 OS it has not died. Nothing is stored on the RPi itself and therefore needs to reset other than a power cycle. Everything is on the boot medium. It could still have a hardware issue though. There are all kinds of things that could fail on the Pi itself, and it would s...

Re: Arduino connection to the PI (with 12C)

Going by the Blue one in the picture above +5V from the Pi needs to go to the HV terminal on the High Logic level side and the 3.3V from the Arduino needs to be connected to the LV terminal on low logic level side. That doesn't sound right, although it would work if the Arduino has a 3V3 supply. Pi...

Re: Display-o-tron HAT projects

if you solder the stacking header to the Proto Hat instead of the one that comes with it, and solder the stacking header on the right way. ;) The Proto Hat plugs into the Pi just like any other hat. Female header on the Proto hat to male GPIO pins on the Pi. Then you just plug the DOT on top the Pro...

Re: Display-o-tron HAT projects

Another way to do it is to mount a Proto Hat on a stacking header between your Pi and displayatron hat. https://www.adafruit.com/product/2310 https://www.adafruit.com/product/1979 This will give you fairly easy access to almost all of the GPIO pins. It will also help lessen the heat transfer from th...

I'm no expert but I don't think you can? i2c is a shared bus but I'm pretty sure i2s isn't. I think you'll just get the two devices fighting each other with neither working. If I'm wrong I'm sure somebody will correct me very shortly.
