Re: Interfacing with peripherals

<t>I'm in the process of creating my own expansion board for the RPi via the header. Too simplify such, I would use a host microcontroller (maybe an AVR xmega) that the RPi would talk to directly via serial. All other peripherals such as GPS, PWM outs, I2C etc would be handled by the xmega controlle...

Re: Home automation project

Thanks.

can't wait for the RPi to start shipping. PandaBoard's power and price is too much for such a project.

Re: Home automation project

<t>I have been developing this project for quite a while now. It started with an x86 server connected to an Arduino over serial and some inexpensive wireless transceiver I found online. The idea is having web access/control to "end devices" which are basically microcontrollers with wireless transcei...
