As a follow-on post to yesterday’s post about the FM Radio with chipKIT uC32 and Basic I/O Shield, we are sharing the tutorial that adds Bluetooth® connectivity/remote control to your chipKIT FM radio tuner. Check it out!
The RedAcacia blog does a fantastic job of putting together tutorials, and in this tutorial, you will learn how to create a simple, yet powerful, FM radio tuner using the chipKIT uC32 board, a chipKIT Basic I/O Shield and an RDA5807M FM-stereo, radio-tuner module communicating over the I²C™ protocol.
Thank you Tayeb!
It’s Throwback Thursday #TBT and we’ve got an old-school, silly post. Remember Demoscenes? We’re bringing them back! If you hadn’t already seen this one, Quelab—a hackerspace in Albuquerque, New Mexico—wrote it for the chipKIT Uno32 using a chipKIT Basic I/O Shield, which has an on-board OLED screen. To make it yourself, head on over to the post on Quelab.net for the details.
P.S. Play with the Basic I/O Shield’s four switches and potentiometer for more options 😉
Take a deep dive into the hardware of the chipKIT Uno32 in this #ThrowbackThursday post that features a March 2012 article from our friends at Nuts & Volts Magazine. Fred Eady, the author, talks about the Arduino hardware model, describing it as “a perfect example of a universal electronic cluster design.” Eady discusses the serial USB interface in depth, and also examines and explains the schematics for powering the chipKIT Uno32 board. Finally, he ends with a deep dive into the Basic I/O Shield, the code libraries that give this board functionality, and the reasoning behind abstraction of the library code.

So, you’ve collected the temperature data via the chipKIT uC32 and the Basic I/O Shield, you’ve sent the data to the Raspberry Pi, but now what do you do with it? This tutorial will show you how to take that data and publish it to the cloud, the Exosite cloud to be sure! For more information on how to create your own IoT application, see a previous post about Exosite, a company that makes connecting devices, networks, and users a breeze via their cloud-based data platform.
The tutorial we’re sharing today shows you how to take temperature readings via chipKIT uC32 (or Uno32) and the Basic I/O Shield, and send this information to Raspberry Pi, where the sky is the limit with the things you can do. In this particular example, you can display the temperature readings in the GUI via a Python script.
