Re: What is the maximum micro sd card capacity for RP3

Right at (3)... Thanks! But as you already state in answer to yourself: That MBR-addressing thing is rather a theortical one, and changing over to GUID partitions is not quite the step. [Gives me a smile when the address becomes instances bigger than the data stored in it...] To the OP: For several ...

Re: What is the maximum micro sd card capacity for RP3

In fact, there is no logical limit to the SD-card size. The thing is to have the boot-partition on a vfat, which is the default with the images that you can download anyways. Then, chose "Expand filesystem" with raspi-config, or resize the fs with any other tool of your choice. Remember, boot must b...

Re: STICKY: Introduce yourself!

Quick addendum, what I'm here for, at all:

Pi is the perfect platform to prototype and to interface new projects. It works out of the box, has all common protocols and is open for own ideas, which can be easily realized. Plus, vast documentation and a community, if questions remain in spite.

Re: DS18B20 Max Distance

"10Base2", correct. Sorry. But as JohnsUPS mentioned, it is always the better idea to separate such projects from the core in the first place: It reduces the risk of damage and/or intrusion, it makes the "subsystem" more flexible, and it will end up in lesser IO-pin usage.

Re: DS18B20 Max Distance

Hi, folks, I had the same issue with 1-wire bus length, and found the maxim's app notes not too helpful at first. Firstly, it is vitally important to understand one thing: The "data" line will be held up by the pull-up resistor until one master or one slave will pull it down according to the protoco...
