3D Hangouts - IOT Telegraph, DIY Pi 400, Gibson Headstock Hanger and Flamingo

This week @adafruit we’re making an IOT telegraph with QT Py ESP32 S2, analog feedback servos and CircuitPython. Prototyping a DIY Pi 400 with a 3D printed enclosure for a mini wireless keyboard with a built-in Raspberry Pi. Timelapse’s this week feature a Gibson headstock inspired key hanger and an articulating Flamingo.

IOT Telegraph

You can build an IoT telegraph with analog feedback servos, QT Py ESP32 S2 and Circuit Python. Inspired by ship engine telegraphs, this uses analog feedback servos to make a simple yet modern two way communication system. Learn Guide https://learn.adafruit.com/two-way-display-with-analog-feedback-servos/ Code on GitHub https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Learning_System_Guides/blob/main/Two_Way_Servo_Telegraph/code.py Use it to keep in touch with a friend by letting them know when you want to grab a bite to eat, go on a walk or get together for a cup of coffee. These Emojis represent the activities you’re interested in and the 3D printed handle lets you select the one you’d like to do. A piece of copper tape is used to detect when it’s being held and released thanks to the magic of capacitive touch. The analog feedback servo keeps track of the handles position and sends it over WiFi using Adafruit IO as the broker.

Desk of Ladyada - an ESPecially fun demo of web/wifi workflow

This weekend we've been noodling around with the new ESP32 support for circuitpython. The ESP32 doesn't have mass storage but it does have wifi, so we can use that as a way to connect to the REPL and also transfer files. This stuff is all very very new in circuitpy 8.x but there's a definition for the odroid go, and it's a handy board to use because it's got a screen and battery built in for wireless testing. We also wrote up a driver for the max17048 https://www.digikey.com/short/m5n5n47f a lipo battery gauge much like the LC709 that we use. it's even in stock! The Great Search - a non-sense-resistor Lipoly battery monitor replacement for LC709203 https://www.digikey.com/short/nqr9zf5b We've liked the LC709203 https://www.digikey.com/short/p2fpd502 for a while as a low-cost, no-sense-resistor-needed battery monitor. Sadly the TQFN version is obsolete https://www.digikey.com/short/p2fpd502 and we're using the BGA version https://www.digikey.com/short/7549bd81 for now but...it's also end of line! Let's source a low cost (less than $2 in qty), I2C, resistor-less, 1-cell lipoly monitor chip that we can use when we run out of our LC709s.

a first test of circuitpython on ESP32 web workflow!

scott and dan just merged in Web (WiFi) Workflow for circuitpython and ESP32 (https://github.com/adafruit/circuitpython/pull/6685) which means that it's incredibly easy to start working with chips like the ESP32 which have excellent WiFi networking but do not have USB mass-storage. we want to have CircuitPython run on these chips but of course we ALSO want to have a great user experience for beginners, and being able to pop open a serial terminal or upload files via a browser's drag-n-drop capabilities would be sweeeeet. we pulled out an odroid go (https://www.hardkernel.com/shop/odroid-go/) which was a popular ESP32 WROVER-based game console, and uploaded the code with esp32 loader (https://espressif.github.io/esptool-js/) . then we configured the AP and SSID password (https://docs.circuitpython.org/en/latest/docs/workflows.html) - this will be done more automatically in the future, for now its done manually with some REPL commands. Now when we visit the IP address displayed on the odroid's screen, it will let us immediately go to the built-in serial console that is also web-compatible! any repl commands are echoed on the display as well. next up we will try uploading files.

EYE on NPI - ST LPS28DFW Dual Full-Scale, Absolute Digital Output Barometer

This week's EYE ON NPI is taking us on a deep dive into the world of waterproof pressure sensors - it's ST's LPS28DFW Dual Full-Scale, Absolute Digital Output Barometer (https://www.digikey.com/en/product-highlight/s/stmicroelectronics/lps28dfw-digital-output-barometer), an easy-to-use I2C temperature and pressure sensor that can go down to 4060hPa for use underwater! We have used and highlighted many pressure sensors (https://www.adafruit.com/?q=pressure+sensor&sort=BestMatch) over the years here at the 'fruit including the ST LPS22 (https://www.adafruit.com/product/4633), ST LPS25 (https://www.adafruit.com/product/4530) , ST LPS33 (https://www.adafruit.com/product/4414) and ST LPS35 (https://www.adafruit.com/product/4258). Yep that's a lot of ST pressure sensors! Each one has slightly different precision: like many companies making sensors, ST has gotten better and better at making sensors, with each new model getting better accuracy/precision. The LPS28 is a big step up in capabilities - almost all baro/pressure sensors are good up to 1060hPA which is basically sea level pressure (naturally 1013hPA) or in a high pressure weather system. The moment you want to go underwater (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Underwater_diving), the ambient pressure increases rapidly by 1 Bar (equal to "1 Atmosphere" or 1000hPa) for every 10 meters. That is to say, 10 meters down you'll be at 2000hPa, and at 30 meters, 4000hPa! But, like we said - most pressure sensors folks use cannot be used at such low pressures - which is why this sensor is the diggity - not only does it have a waterproof gel but you can actually use it underwater! The interface for this sensor is also nice and easy: I2C or I3C (https://blog.adafruit.com/2022/05/12/eye-on-npi-nxp-p3s0200gm-i3c-switch-with-hardware-select-and-enable-eyeonnpi-nxp-digikey/) with one address pin and one alert/interrupt pin. The sensors are calibrated in the ST factory and thankfully are loaded into the ASIC on boot, so you can just read the pressure directly from the I2C register address without doing any funky math. Ready to dive into using this sensor? You are in luck as there's even an eval board available (https://www.digikey.com/short/42rrvp2v) for quick connection and testing without any soldering required. And of course, this ST LPS28DFW NPI is available and in stock right now at Digi-Key for immediate shipment (https://www.digikey.com/short/1wrmj51m). Order today and you'll be swimming in sensor data by tomorrow afternoon!

The Great Search - White LED strand backlight constant current driver (FAN5333 replacement)

Another day, another part we can't get! This week we're on the hunt for a replacement for the FAN5333 (https://www.digikey.com/short/bc3jrj8w), a constant-current, 24V boost converter that we use for our TFT displays with big back lights like the 4.3" touchscreen (https://www.adafruit.com/product/1591). These displays often have 6 or 7 white LEDs in series, and sometimes multiple strands of them! That means boosting 3.3V or 5V up to 22VDC with 50 to 100mA of current. That's a lot of power! Let's find a good alternative at Digi-Key so we can keep making display breakouts that folks love - ideally one that is drop-in compatible with the FAN5333 or at least one with minimal design changes required.

Desk of Ladyada - Metro Mini Redux + Some Sensors

Hey remember when we were revising all our CP2014 boards for the CP2102N? Next up is the metro mini (https://www.adafruit.com/product/2590) an Atmega328 board that we use often for breadboardy Arduino projects. like other boards that need a respin, we approached it with a "well, while we're here, lets do a gut renovation" - so in addition to swapping the usb serial chip, we also changed the USB to type C, changed some 0805 parts to 0603, and added a STEMMA QT port. one other change is we are having some difficulties getting the 32-TQFN of the '328, but we did snag about 8000 of the 28-TQFN so this 'V2' uses that part for now. it really is a 'design with what you can get' time! We also played with the AGS02MA gas sensor and wrote some drivers for it, and started on the code for our GUVB I2C UV sensor we designed a while back since it's nice and sunny for testing! The Great Search - White LED strand backlight constant current driver (FAN5333 replacement) https://www.digikey.com/short/78btttb0 Another day, another part we can't get! This week we're on the hunt for a replacement for the FAN5333 (https://www.digikey.com/short/bc3jrj8w), a constant-current, 24V boost converer that we use for our TFT displays with big back lights like the 4.3" touchscreen(https://www.adafruit.com/product/1591). These displays often have 6 or 7 white LEDs in series, and sometimes multiple strands of them! That means boosting 3.3V or 5V up to 22VDC with 50 to 100mA of current. That's a lot of power! Let's find a good alternative at Digi-Key so we can keep making display breakouts that folks love - ideally one that is drop-in compatible with the FAN5333 or at least one with minimal design changes required.
