BMP180 based USB atmospheric pressure monitor

We initially developed this USB atmospheric pressure monitor to study some operating characteristics of Bosch BMP180 sensor. BMP180 is low cost sensor to measuring barometric pressure and temperature. According to the data sheet this sensor can use to measure pressure ranging between 300hPa to 1100hPa. This sensor is introduced couple of years back but still it is popular due to lower cost and simplicity. W ...

2018 WILL MARK A MILESTONE IN GPS TECHNOLOGY WITH 30-CENTIMETER ACCURACY

You’re in a crowded street with many high buildings around you and you find your car position on Google maps is wrong. That’s usual, right? This is caused from (fake/distorted) GPS signals reflected from the high buildings around you which make your GPS receiver do some wrong calculations. Even with no wrong calculations, the current GPS accuracy is about 5 meters, but this is going to change in next year 2 ...

Control Pi-Plate With Spark Core

The ppDAQC board from Pi-Plates.com is an inexpensive yet powerful solution for expanding the input/output capabilities of the Spark Core. And since Pi-Plates are stackable, it is a simple task to scale up the I/O capabilities of a single Core. All that is required for connectivity are the four SPI signals (signals A2-A5) as well as a single digital output (D6). Power can come from the Core or from the ppDA ...
