Pinguino Control is an Android Application that controls a Pinguino PIC32 OTG board in real time, offering the possibility to act on every input and output available of this platform. The user can set Ports/Pins to input or outputs, plus setting their logic state. This App also offers control over the Analog Outputs (PWM) and monitoring of all Analog Inputs implemented on the board. Feedback is also provided, so the user can see what is happening in the board, regardless if it was caused by interaction with the App or directly on the hardware. More about Roberto’s App here.
We’ve just received first Pinguino 47j53, model A Inflatable Ball:
Susanne from Germany has started a nice project she calls AquaPinguino.
She has built a system with automatic monitoring and control of every major water and lighting factors for her seawater aquarium.
She made a double side board controlled by a Pinguino32 Micro with relays on one side to control lights and mosfets on the other side for pump flow regulation.
At the moment the LED-light can only be turned on and off for day/night simulation but Susanne has also planned to simulate sunrise/sunset and maybe lunar-phase.
Pinguino’s PWM can drive up to four 12V pumps. One is for water level regulation and pumps demineralised water from a canister into the aquarium. The other ones can simulate waves, streams and also basic high/low tide.
Next step will be to add temperature control to drive air fans in order to cool water in the summer season. She also plans to add alarms for water level control and redox potential sensor to regulate a calcium reactor.
All information are displayed on her self-made “console terminal” with 6 buttons and a 16×1 LCD display.
Pinguino Kit is a graphical development environment for the Pinguino Project. It is intended as a tool for teaching basic programming and digital electronics. Please take a look at this preview :
Great job, Yeison !
We made 100 Pinguino 26j50 Kits.
Why not combine your Christmas shopping this year with your favorite hobby ?
Think about your grandmother or your little sister and make them happy with a Pinguino.
You will support our efforts to make a better IDE !
