A nice post on using the PRUs in the Beaglebone to sample at 1MSps. Makes me wonder why we are having so many problems reading an 4x4 keyboard!
 
I have finished the circuit and code for short-burst (4 second) 1MSps sampling on the #Beaglebone  PRU-ICSS using the 12-bit ADS7883 SPI ADC. It works well, but the ADS7883 is tiny (SOT23!) and requires an adapter board and careful soldering for prototyping use. I have added a full description with example outputs at: http://exploringbeaglebone.com/chapter13/#The_ADS7883_Single-Channel_12-bit_ADC_1MSps_max

Looking for a Pi? Not sure where it is?
 
Found out about this neat command from Kim at Makespace: https://github.com/OpenDCU/RaspberryPi/wiki/Findpis
you may need to 'sudo apt-get install xmlstarlet nmap' first if you don't have nmap or xmlstarlet. Really handy.

Managed to get the two Nokia displays both working off a common bus. ( Or at least I would if I had two working ones.) But the theory is sound. This should allow us to drive all three of these displays just by having a chip select from GPIO. The Beaglebone black only has a single chip select on the first  SPI bus so we are just using a transistor to OR that signal with each displays CS using a GPIO pin. The timing of the CS seems to be tied in with the bus so we can't just use the GPIO directly. +York Hack Space

York Hackspace will be at the West Yorkshire playhouse (in Leeds) tomorrow 3pm to 7pm for "fun palaces". More details here: http://funpalaces.co.uk/discover/leeds-fun-palace/
Kicking off with the extravaganza that is Light Night on Friday 3 October and continuing throughout the weekend, there'll be things to make and do, enjoy and learn at West Yorkshire Playhouse, The Tetley, Scrap Leeds. Slung Low will be bringing their beautiful Emporium of Knowledge, housed in a classic airstream caravan. Here you can learn the knowledge of 40 different places - and make a tortilla in the process. There'll be arts crawls, probably...

The spacehack consoles are getting much closer to being finished. Now with professional quality prints for all consoles, software looking good, hardware mostly wired up too.
 
Still two LCDs to add. Console 4 looking good with a really good quality print in it.
