Case 2丨What is Pico:ed of GPIO?
Based on the hardware in the previous section, some of you will ask exactly how the LED lighting is achieved.
The answer is to use a GPIO peripheral.
Here you need to understand a concept, the full name of peripherals is external devices.
In the early days, UART, LCD controller, and so on, and the CPU is not on a chip, so that is called external devices.
OUR NEW DISTRIBUTOR -- ALLNET's Maker Store
Warmly celebrate the cooperation between us. We hope ALLNET's Maker Store can do better and better, and make greater contributions to the global steam education industry!
Case 1丨What Is Pico:ed? How To Play?
Pico:ed is powered by the latest MCU release from the Raspberry Pi Foundation (RP2040), the first microcontroller for the Raspberry Pi. It brings our signature value of high performance, low cost and ease of use to the microcontroller space.
Review sharing from our newly developed Raspberry Pi development board Pico:ed
As we all know, ELECFREAKS recently developed a development board based on RP2040--Pico:ed. Compared with the official Pico, this board is more suitable for classroom use. It is similar to micro:bit's gold finger edge connector and is also compatible with all micro:bit kits developed by ELECFREAKS.
Case 4丨How To Apply ADC With Pico:ed?
Often, without our eyes and ears, our hands and feet are not as accurate as they could be, because we get feedback through our eyes and ears. Our brain can use the feedback to constantly correct the movement of our hands and feet, creating closed-loop feedback. If we need to use PWM to precisely control the brightness of an LED, we need feedback, but the brightness of the LED is an analogue signal.
Our MCU is not able to process the analogue signal directly, it needs to be converted into a digital signal before it can be processed, so how can we convert the analogue signal into a digital signal? This is where Pico:ed's ADC function shines through.
How to make a Smart tricycle？
Unlike another smart tricycle on the market, which can only load goods, this one can not only load goods, but also turn automatically when it encounters obstacles ahead, and when it encounters strong UV rays, it will also sound a voice alarm and automatically back up to a place where the UV rays are weak.
How to Play Music With Pico:ed
The Pico:ed is a development board based on Raspberry Pi RP2040 MCU which has a passive buzzer onboard. We know that micro:bit is able to play music by MicroPython, thus, how to play music with Pico:ed?
ELECFREAKS Aircraft Carrier
Aircraft Carriers are large surface combatants that provide a base for maritime activities with aircraft as their main combat equipment, or "carriers" for short. Aircraft carriers have become an indispensable weapon for modern navies and one of the most important ships in naval warfare. By relying on aircraft carriers, a nation can exert military pressure and conduct operations far from its territory and without relying on local airfields. Aircraft carriers have become an indispensable tool for modern navies and a symbol of a nation's comprehensive national power. That's right, today we're going to do it with the "ELECFREAKS Aircraft Carrier"! Let's see how I did it!
Draw A Picture with Watercolors by A Nezha Robot
The advanced technology in modern societies helps a lot in the technical development in improving the working efficiency and the safety for dangerous works, and we’ve also prevailed a lot of works for our blogs with the emphasis on the combination of the technology with the construction, the health data monitoring, the vehicles assembly and etc., but seldom have we considered the possibility of combining the technology with arts. Here in this blog, we’d like to have a try on doing a robot project which could be applied to draw a picture with watercolors, and definitely, this robot could be assembled from our Nezha Inventor’s Kit. Here we go!
2022 The Best Five STEAM Robot Car for Homeschooling
I wonder if you are confused when giving toys to your children as to what kind of things they will enjoy and have meaning. In recent years, the STEAM concept has become popular, aiming to develop children's multi-threaded working skills through creative play and learning inspiration in a holistic manner. With this, STEAM toys have become the perfect starter toys for young creators.
