Here is a beginner’s guide to MicroPython development on the ESP8266 and ESP32 boards using PyCharm IDE. It covers the basics of MicroPython, firmware flashing, and how to set up PyCharm for remote MicroPython development. Additionally, the article includes an example project that demonstrates how to control an LED using MicroPython code.
In this guide, we aim to explore the many aspects of interfacing the I2C protocol with the popular ESP8266 microcontroller. As a versatile and powerful component, the ESP8266 has found its place in numerous IoT projects, primarily due to its WiFi capabilities and low cost.
This guide focuses on using MicroPython with ESP8266 and ESP32 microcontrollers, two popular choices for IoT and embedded systems. By understanding the standard instruments available with MicroPython, such as Python, esptool, ampy, PuTTY, and screen, you can quickly and easily build projects for these powerful devices. This guide will provide an overview of each tool and how to use them effectively, so you can take full advantage of the capabilities of your ESP8266 or ESP32 microcontroller.
This latest article in the series explores how to use the BNO055 sensor with ESP32, ESP8266, and Arduino to achieve gyroscope high rate and any motion interrupt. The BNO055 sensor combines an accelerometer, magnetometer, and gyroscope in one module, making it ideal for accurate orientation tracking.
Continue the series of article about the Bosch sensor BNO055. In this part of the tutorial, we will learn how to enable the INT pin of the BNO055 and configure the accelerometer High G Interrupt. The High G Interrupt is triggered when the accelerometer detects a sudden acceleration event that exceeds a specified threshold and duration. This can be useful for detecting impacts, falls, or other sudden movements in a variety of applications.
In this article, we are going to integrate into our ESP32 or esp8266 an external flash memory in addition to the internal one.
In this article, we are going to explore the power modes of BON055 and focus on accelerometer features and management.
Whoever has started to peek into the wonderful world of small electronics will undoubtedly have read about Raspberry Pi or Arduino boards. This is where I personally started to ask myself, what is the right board for which project?
In this article, we are going to explore all features of BON055 and how to configure It.
This is the second article on bno055. If you need basic management, you can refer to the previous article “BNO055 accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, and orientation software”, but if you need advanced management (and more complex) with interrupt, you must read this article also.
