Cross Compiling for Raspberry Pi – Part II

My attempt to cross compile a more complicated Raspberry Pi application, that uses the native OpenCV and the PiCamera libraries on the target system.


Saund-Box: Completed

Some photos of the completed synth project.

Saund-Box: It’s Alive!

Yay, got the synth project working!

Synth Project: Pre-Testing the Circuits

Ended up pre-testing all the synth modules on a breadboard prior to building on the PCB.

Quick video of the VCF in action.

Synth Project: Creating Front Panel Layout and Wiring Plan

How I created the layout and artwork for the synth’s panel front, as well as a wiring diagram for the components on the back, using Inkscape – a free 2D vector drawing package.

Synth Project: Overview

A brief post to give an idea of my plans for building the Music From Outer Space Experimenter Board.

Analog Synthesizer Project

I’m super excited about a new project. It has nothing to do with robotics or microcontrollers – at least at present it doesn’t. 🙂

Cross Compiling For Raspberry Pi – Part I

Developing code natively on the Raspberry Pi is not ideal for larger projects so I decided to explore cross compilation to attain better productivity. This post describes how I set up cross compilation using Ubuntu via Parallels 10 on OS X.

Raspberry Pi… Camera… Action!

The next step in the Blue Block Challenge is getting the simple object detect code that I’ve already developed on the Mac, running on the Raspberry Pi using the PiCamera via its MMAL C interface.
