From viewtopic.php?f=104&t=194372&p=1217689#p1217689The Astro Pi kits, for this year's challenge, will be using this NOOBS image http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/AstroP ... 017-09-04/ which is based on Jessie. This will give you working push buttons out of the box.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
Interesting to know. I will need to follow up in reading the schematics. I thought the ATTiny88 did all the sensor data reading AND accessing the LED matrix and joystick. If it does not, its OK. So these are "Smart Sensors" and not "Dumb Sensors;" the difference being that Smart Sensors send out formatted data that is picked up in the environment while Dumb Sensors have to be read and what is read is formatted or converted (like resistance to a temperature reading). All that is basic programming but the smart sensor makes it easier to get the data with less code and the dumb sensor needs a subroutine to be read.bensimmo wrote: ↑Tue Oct 24, 2017 9:57 amI believe though the 3 sensors just run over the standard connection on the I2C bus, not via the Atmel AVR Attiny88 which controls the LEDs and Joystick.
and yes you can modify it if you want.
