Each of the 8 Pico PWM engines supports automatic edge counting. If that is supported by MicroPython you needn't worry about software time.
I've not heard of that before. Is it for getting the frequency of the input?

Digital Read Speed?

Hi, I'm building a speedometer & tachometer using the Raspberry Pi Pico for a motorcycle. I've done the calculations, and for the maximum "reads" per second, I would need the following: Speedo: 100 reads per second for the wheel going 80mph (22 wheel revolutions per second * 4 sensor p...

Official Touchscreen Size Specs?

Hello,
I'm designing a custom 3D model for 3D printing for the official Raspberry Pi touchscreen, and I was wondering if some kind person here would link me to a place where I could see a detailing of the exact sizes of the touchscreen?

Thanks!

Re: EDUP EP-N1571 Wifi Dongle Not Working

Hey,
Sorry, I was able to fix it. I had to edit etc/network/interfaces to add my network name and password. Why doesn't Raspbian automatically look for WiFi networks, like the older verions of Raspbian did?

EDUP EP-N1571 Wifi Dongle Not Working

Hello,

Using the latest Rasbian, I cannot get my EDUP EP-N1571 WiFi dongle to work.
It used to work plug-n-play in earlier versions of Raspbian, but not anymore. How do I get it to work?

Re: RPi "Black Square" (CPU/RAM?) gets hot immediately

Okay, I guess that's what I'll do.

It's a really nice thing that they are really cheap!
On top of that, it gives me an excuse to buy the new Pi 2 :)

Thanks!

RPi "Black Square" (CPU/RAM?) gets hot immediately

Hello, My Pi (B+) suddenly shut down (it wasn't running that long, and the room temperature was below body temperature) and the whole Pi became very hot. I put it on a cold ice pack (no moisture on the outside of it) and it soon was touchable again, but when I plugged it in again it immediately over...

Duh. Google, the source of all knowledge.

Is it possible...

I have a large request, and that is, is it possible to connect to the pi wirelessly (over LAN) from a computer, and read data coming from a USB cord connected to a Pi. Then, detect that data as though it was plugged into the computer itself. And when I mean computer, I mean a mac or windows laptop. ...

No, they said that the logo was copyrighted. But they did give me some images of the actual Raspberry Pi I could use.

I got one of those LCD screens from Adafruit (http://www.adafruit.com/products/1109), and I soldered it all. When I put it on my Pi, the Pi couldn't 'sense' it. I did the command 'sudo i2cdetect -y 1', and it didn't find anything. I did -y 0, too. I followed the instructions on learn.adafruit.com, a...

Hello Raspberry Piers, I like doing cool projects, especially ones that involve GPIO and breadboards. Can anyone give me an idea of what to build/program? Anything that involves lights and buttons, because I have A LOT of those. Also, a light sensor would be nice too. Any ideas? Thanks, Nicholas Har...
