Just a quick little update to let you know that I uploaded the schematic for our current pre-release board to Piunora's hackaday.io project page. We thought it might help answer some of the questions that our more curious users have been asking. Read the full update.
There are some really cool things you can do when you combine an electronics dev board with a Linux SoC! Today, I want to show you how easy it is to prototype with Piunora by making a sensor-based game controller. In the demo below, we are using Adafruit Blinka (a library that enables CircuitPython code on Linux) and an Adafruit VCNL4040 distance sensor attached by a single cable to Piunora's Qwiic/Stemma-QT connector. No breadboards or soldering required! Read the full update.
I have received a lot of requests for ways to support long, 2280 M.2 devices. While Piunora is small—and therefore only supports up to 2242 devices in its native form factor—I love seeing people come up with cool hacks, and I want to help out however I can. (One such request was for a PCI-e-to-4x-RS232 adapter. Who knew that was even a thing!?) Anyway, in response to these requests, I have added an adapter board to the campaign. Read the full update.
I'm excited to announce that the crowdfunding campaign for Piunora has begun! This has been a thrilling journey for me. It all started with a little weekend project back in December 2020 that ended up with me starting a side business—Diodes Delight—and developing Piunora into a real product. Read the full update.
