TEN-TEC Introduces an open-source QRP transceiver powered by chipKIT Uno32

Posted 2017-02-13 09:46:32 by Majenko


TEN-TEC launched a new QRP transceiver based upon a *completely different *platform than any other rigs they have in production: a QRP radio, built on the chipKIT Uno32™ (Arduino-based software) to be known as the Model 506 Rebel.

The TEN-TEC Rebel model 506 transceiver is designed with the purpose of providing Ham Radio operators a platform for developing and writing code using the open-source Arduino programming environment. It is a factory

DC Motor Control using Raspberry Pi, chipKIT Pi and the Arduino Motor Control Shield

Posted 2017-02-13 09:46:23 by Majenko


This post is intended to demonstrate compatibility of the chipKIT Pi with certain existing Arduino shields. In the second part of this post, we will also demonstrate how to communicate with the chipKIT Pi over a simple I/O line on the Raspberry Pi®, from a terminal window, to control the Arduino™ shield connected to the chipKIT Pi.
