Raspberry Pi (/paɪ/) is a series of small single-board computers (SBCs) developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation in association with Broadcom. The Raspberry Pi project originally leaned towards the promotion of teaching basic computer science in schools and in developing countries. The original model became more popular than anticipated, selling outside its target market for uses such as robotics. It is widely used in many areas, such as for weather monitoring,[19] because of its low cost, modularity, and open design. It is typically used by computer and electronic hobbyists due to its adoption of the HDMI and USB standards.

TS7-Pro: unleashing the power of the Raspberry Pi Touchscreen tablet for night vision 0

Night Vision on Raspberry Pi: TS7-Pro Display, PiPower & DIY 3D Printed Battery in Action!

What started as a simple review of the TS7-Pro display for a project, has evolved into a comprehensive examination of a Raspberry Pi setup. This setup features the TS7-Pro display, a night vision camera, a SunFounder PiPower module, and a DIY 3D printed rechargeable battery pack. Witness how the night vision camera effectively captures detailed images, even in low-light conditions.

Raspberry Pi Pico W rp2040 how to use SD card 2

Raspberry Pi Pico and rp2040 boards: how to use SD card – 5

We have already talked about the internal flash memories for rp2040 boards and other microcontrollers, which are very useful for storing pages or static files. However, they are not suitable for logging or similar applications, so we will learn how to connect and use an SD card which can have a lot of space, a very small form factor, and low power consumption.

Raspberry Pi Pico, and other rp2040 boards: WiFiNINA with ESP32 WiFi Co-Processor

Even though Raspberry Pi Foundation has released the Pico W version, I still find this tutorial useful for adding WiFi to rp2040 boards using an ESP32.
We will use an esp32-wroom-32 (or esp32-s) as WiFi coprocessor and the full potential WiFiNINA library to handle it.
