Oscilloscope Tricks with a Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Check out this great Raspberry Pi oscilloscope project from the Adafruit Forums:
Here’s my current RPi project — I’ve written some code to convert bitmaps to audio, for the purposes of playing it against an XY oscilloscope. With this method, I can turn any ancient oscilloscope into a clock, or, as you can see, something more.
Took about a week to write the code to manipulate the images you’re seeing. Performed on a stock Raspberry Pi, with the audio connector plugged into a 1974 Tektronix Analog Storage Oscilloscope.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
