Re: Why do DI/DO have 16 and not 28 I/O?

The key point here is that we wanted to have a balance between costs and benefit. We first designed the DIO module. Then with a working DIO module it is reasonable that DI and DO modules are just variants of a DIO. So with this way we save development costs. Therefore if you only want inputs the DI ...

Re: rpiboot waiting for BCM2835/6/7 on a Core (1)

Thank you for sharing your experiences with the community. As you can see the complexity i.e. for USB may be hidden in those details we usually not think about first.

Re: Controlling the LED

The original image from the Raspberry Pi foundation does not contain the piControl package. Also there is no real time patch applied to the kernel. You are free to use our GitHub repository to add this functionality by yourself. But it would be easier for you to use the images which are available in...

Re: Reset Revolution Pi Core USB ports

In the schematics of the RevPi Core you can see that the USB channels are connected to the chip LAN9512. This is a combined USB hub plus Ethernet bridge. Therefore shutting down USB would also shutdown the Ethernet connection. This would result in the need to reboot the device. There is the AP2553 w...

Re: Mounting the RevPi as network drive (Samba share)

When I used to develop a Python application on my Engineering PC and executed it on the RevPi I didn't use Samba but PuTTy. I used SFTP with key authentication and a batch command list for copying. Then you have a semi-automatic file transfer. So here is the example that worked like a charm for me: ...

RealVNC gave us the information that using it locally in a LAN is free of charge with a RevPi.
If you want to be absolutely sure please contact RealVNC.

Hello matt.s, I'm sorry to hear that you have problems with the USB-WLAN stick from our shop. We ourselves often use this stick here, e.g. for trade fair exhibits and also internally. So far we have not had such experiences. Certainly the heat is a possible cause of the problem. At the moment we hav...
