Re: Wish list for Raspberry Pi Model 3

isn't this the "official" Raspberry Pi forum?
So cannnot the (hardware) developers be expected to read what the consumers wish and what issues exist?

Re: Wish list for Raspberry Pi Model 3

ps, extra digital and analog pins could be provided by an extra onboard AVR or even an ARM M3, quickly interfaced e.g., by highspeed-SPI or USB.
That reminds me of another model 3... or TRE...

now we are pleased to present to you...

Raspberry Pi TRE ! :ugeek:

Re: Wish list for Raspberry Pi Model 3

yes the Raspi was good and is good at either time, but as time goes by, the improvements and enhancements proceed. (no, I have no A type, I started with the B+ because A and B had faaaaaaar tooooooo feeeeew pins...) (edit: the sandwich is inside or down under ;) ) Finally, the better one is the foe ...

yes indeed, why?

Wish list for Raspberry Pi Model 3

Wish List for Raspberry Pi Model 3:

- at least 2 UART ports
- at least 2 i2c ports
- at least 8 extra ADC ports (at least by 10 bit resolution)
- hardware graphics accelerator, perhaps by support of external USB-to-VGA or HDMI (?) graphic adapters

next question: what would be the best way to pass "real color names" to the Stroke(r, g, b, x) function? #define BLACK {0, 0, 0, 1} #define WHITE {255,255,255, 1} is this correct? Stroke( WHITE ); analoguesly, e.g. for: #define RED ... #define BLUE #define GREEN #define YELLOW #define MAGE...

Re: questions about wiringPi

except these settings described above (i.e. the patch of /boot/cmdline.txt) - will I have to do different things before my Serial communication will work for the Raspi? e.g., any additional UART settings on command line level? Or will the C code then compile and work correctly for the Raspi out of t...

thanks, now I slowly get it.. The return value is the file descriptor so it's not just an error to be returned, but also a file handle, correct? char * uart = "/dev/ttyAMA0"; int Serial1 = serialOpen (uart, 115200); // for Arduino code compatibility reasons then it will become char c; seri...

Re: questions about wiringPi

e.g., for the start:

what is *device ? How is the serialOpen function to be used?
int serialOpen (char *device, int baud) ;

is this correct?

char * uart;
int ioerr = serialOpen (uart, 115200); // what is *uart? how has it to be initialized? or nothing?

Re: wanted: robotics multi-IO shield, 8 motors, lot of IOs

indeed, Arduino Zero-based, Arduino IDE compatible libs, even 2 UART ports free - just curious about a free i2c and the RasPi-to-ZeroPi API interface though -
but over all:
