Re: Visual Studio 2017: error : Could not find the specified C/C++ compiler

Microsoft is aware of this problem, and they fixed it relatively recently. You can almost guess what is going on by looking at the error messages that are generated by Visual Studio when you try to do a single-file compile : 1>bash: -c: command not found 1>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Stu...

No. When the three new factories have started production? No. How many shifts is each factory running...

Re: Commercial Use of the Pi

That's hardly the point. Several individuals keep trying to steer us away from the fundamental issue. The fundamental issue is not that there are not enough Zeros/etc. The issue is not that we are blaming RPF for not being able to be successful commercially. Etc. Etc. In fact, what is going on here ...

James - Thanks for the quick reply. I understand the position, and the reasons. I just find it disconnected from the wider "PR" approach of the Pi project. As I (and others) have said, so much of this would be swept aside with a single addition to the FAQ page (or maybe a single stickied post here)...

Re: How to bypass the crypto chip in my raspberry pi camera

I removed that chip from my board and now the camera board is stopped working. From what I have read in this forum, the purpose of the crypto chip is to prevent other vendors from making V2 cameras that will work with the RPi. If that is the purpose, then, naturally, if you remove it, you can expec...

Also, keep in mind that the primary reason for calculating characteristic impedance is to eliminate impedance mismatches along the transmission path to eliminate possibility of reflections that occur as a result of the physics of mismatched material. Since, in reality, no two segments of a transmiss...

Re: Driving 5v relay coil using GPIO

If you want to avoid using the 2.7 mA from the GPIO pin when the BJT is on, you can use a FET instead of the BJT, as described on this page about low-side switches.

So, why are you arguing here, on a volunteer support forum? Go talk to RPT directly. Tell them what you want and ask for a price. Then you will have a definitive answer -- probably quicker than spending time here. Because this is the locus of the conversation, and I am clearly not the only one who ...
