How interesting it would be if you can use your hobby computer to make anything that you wish to!! Electronics and coding enthusiasts all over the world are very well aware of this potential regarding Raspberry Pi, the good ol’ pocket sized wonder. We have seen some immensely wonderful hacks and gadgets based on it. This blog is the same where Jeremy Blythe explores one of the n dimensions which Raspberry Pi can do.
Now, let us mind you that he hasn’t done anything extraordinary like creating a quad-copter or dynamic GPS system. This is Raspberry Pi based parking assisting system which has a distance sensor interfaced with it.Simple,eh, no? Definitely not!! This project has a pretty long python coding. The project uses a Microsoft Camera, Adafruit 2.2 inches LCD display and a Sharp distance sensor. Jinxing with the hardware can be possible of course; keeping in mind the coding doesn’t get disturbed.
A Printed Circuit Board doesn’t just connect electrical components using etched copper pathways, but also provides mechanical strength to it. Printed Circuit Boards, or more appropriately, Printed Wiring Boards are found in almost all of the commercial products as a packaging medium as building blocks. PCBs are a composite of organic and/or inorganic dielectric materials with many layers with wiring interconnects and also house components like inductors and capacitors.
There isn’t any standard printing board as such and each board is unique, often a function of the product itself. Printed Circuit Board or PCB is generally used to mechanically support and electrically connect the components with help of conductive pathways or traces made on copper clad sheet. In another words PCB is used to create an electrical connection between different components like resistor, capacitor, integrated circuits, IC’s etc.
