SiFive announced the Arduino Cinque, the new RISC-V based development board | Open Electronics The Arduino Cinque is the second RISC-V based development board put out by SiFive (the first being the HiFive1) compatible with the Arduino platform. “By partnering with a pioneer in open-source hardware, SiFive can further advance the progress of open custom silicon” Board has SiFive’s Freedom E310 customizable SoC, which runs off the E31 CPU

SiFive Unveils the First RISC-V-Based Arduino  “Arduino Cinque” is based on SiFive’s Freedom E310 — the industry’s first commercially available RISC-V core — running at 320MHz. Aside from the SoC, an onboard ESP32 chip provides support for 2.4GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

HB100 microwave radar to Arduino

A Doppler radar is a specialized radar that uses the Doppler effect to produce velocity data about objects at a distance. It does this by bouncing a microwave signal off a desired target and analyzing how the object’s motion has altered the frequency of the returned signal. Doppler radar technology used to be expensive, but

LEGO power functions with Arduino

LEGO Power Functions is a LEGO electric building system. You have battery boxes to deliver the power, different types of motors to make things move, light, remote control and even connection to a computer. The Power Functions system has 4 wires and uses 9V voltage. The IR Remote Control sends infrared light messages to the IR

The DIY electronics transforming research Arduinos are one of a growing number of low-cost, stripped-down, and highly configurable computing devices that have transformed the field of homebrew and do-it-yourself electronics. Increasingly, they are transforming the research community too.  Available for as little as £4 (US$5) Arduinos and similar devices, such as the Raspberry Pi, pack considerable power on their
