Supercapacitor uninterruptable power supply (UPS) for Raspberry Pi

smbakeryt built a couple supercapacitor uninterruptible power supply (UPS) prototypes for his raspberry pi projects: For my Convergent restoration, I decided to build an RASCSI to replace some failing SCSI hard drives. The RASCSI is a SCSI emulator built using a raspberry pi. Problem with these types of emulators is that if you carelessly power […]

The Hayes Chronograph, a remake for 2020

smbakeryt built his own Hayes Chronograph: I’ve always wanted a Hayes Chronograph, but have never been able to acquire one, so I finally broke down and just made my own. The Hayes Chronograph was a compliment to Hayes line of smart modems, and implemented a real time clock for computers that didn’t have a built-in […]

CyberDeck ZBS

Recycled cyberdeck made from old project Raspberry pi Zero Boot System @ Facelesstech: So when I redesigned my ZBS (zero boot system) I decided to also make a thinner version of my portable raspberry pi setup. This worked out great and I used it to develop the raspberry pi add-ons and the software for the […]

DIY long lasting voltage regulator circuit for Raspberry Pi

Jithin @ rootsaid.com writes: Raspberry Pi is simple, handy and cheap yet powerful single board computers of all time. It has USB ports to connect hardware such as pen drive, keyboard, mouse, HDMI port for display out, 3.5 mm port for audio and several GPIO pins to work with embedded projects, all of which can […]

Cassette Pi IoT scroller

The Cassette Pi IoT scroller project @ kyliemander.com The Cassette Pi is a self-contained real-time notification scroller, all housed neatly inside a transparent cassette tape. A Raspberry Pi Zero is sandwiched between the two tape reels, retrieving Internet of Things notifications from the fabulous IFTTT service, delivered almost instantly to the Pi via an Adafruit.IO […]

24-bit stereo audio DAC for Raspberry Pi

Dilshan Jayakody has published a new build: This project is about 24-bit stereo DAC, which we build for Raspberry Pi boards. This R-2R ladder DAC is developing around Intel / Altera EPM240T100C5N CPLD. We developed this module after review the PT8211 DAC, which we tested a few months ago. Compare with PT8211 DAC, this module […]

Linear Nixie tube HAT for the Raspberry Pi

Mark Smith has been working on a HAT for the Raspberry Pi that can drive two IN-9 or IN-13 linear Nixie tubes: This project as described in www.surfncircuits.com came about because I needed a retro looking linear meter for my espresso maker water tank. I’m always running out of water in my espresso maker, and […]

The Script

Peter Scargill’s Script: Regular readers will know about the script that Aidan Ruff and I originally developed to put Node-Red and several other packages onto the Raspberry Pi for our own home control purposes. This has been developed with help from several people and in particular my friend Antonio “Mr Shark”. WELL – here is […]

Building a bluetooth DAC with Raspberry Pi Zero W

Sami Pietikainen has written an article detailing the build of his Bluetooth DAC using Raspberry Pi Zero W: My car comes with a built-in Bluetooth hands-free but unfortunately it does not support audio streaming. Luckily there is an AUX input available which uses a regular 3,5 mm jack. Perfect opportunity for a DIY project. I built the […]

PocketPi MK2

 A smaller thinner PocketPi from Facelesstech: Thinner with a simpler design but packing the same feature as before. At its heart is a raspberry pi zero W with a 3.5″ screen 480×320. It has all the GPIO pins available what aren’t being used by the screen. Its powered by a 2500mAh battery and has one full […]

Building a Raspberry Pi UPS and serial login console with tinyK22 (NXP K22FN512)

Erich Styger has been working on a UPS with the Raspberry Pi to cover a short power out: There are different ways to ruin a Linux system. For the Raspberry Pi which uses a micro SD card as the storage device by default, it comes with two challenges: 1.Excessive writes to the SD card can […]

The Nixie tube filadometer – a Nixie tube filament meter for your 3D printer

Dr. Scott M. Baker made a Nixie tube filament meter for his 3D Printer: First, I decided to upgrade from the Raspberry Pi Model B to a more recent Raspberry Pi Zero W that I had on hand. Wired Ethernet is so ~ 2013 after all, and wireless would be a lot more convenient. Next, […]

Open Trickler: The DIY smart powder trickler

Eric Higgins has a nice build log on his Open Trickler project a bluetooth-enabled smart powder trickler from off-the-shelf parts for under $60: Fundamentally, this is not a hard problem to solve. Read the value from the scale, run a motor that moves powder into the scale, turn off the motor when the scale reads […]

Tiny particle sensor node with decorative case

Lucky Resistor published a new build: This article is about a small sensor node with a decorative case. It is based on the Raspberry Pi Zero W board with a custom sensor shield on top. I publish all hardware files for a simple version of the sensor, so you should be able to build this […]

Raspberry Pi based indoor air quality monitor

Dr. Scott M. Baker made this Pi-based environmental monitor and wrote a post on his blog detailing its assembly: For years I’ve followed the “uRadMonitor”, a device that does air quality monitoring and radiation monitoring. I’ve played with geiger counter projects before and frankly found them to be not very interesting. However, the idea of monitoring […]
