Our day jobs are taking us away (some farther than others…) the week of April 24-28. We are still available for technical support, but expect some delays. Shipment of orders will resume May 1.
Ever wanted to control some real world hardware with your Raspberry Pi? Every now and then, we get questions about using either our I2C-RELAY16 or I2C-XIO boards from the Pi, and it’s been on my eternal backlog list of “I should do a quick article on that…” So let’s break this logjam and get down to controlling a cheap Chinese 16 channel relay board with a Pi (available from SainSmart and others). Because this provides 16 relatively high current, isolated output channels, this seems a great place to start, and it’s an easy hour project.
