Finally, the 2nd test edition is coming !!
Here are the 2nd testers (6 in total) – shipping begins mid Oct
- Mark Bauer
- Doug Thornhill
- Matthew Shoemaker
- Josh Siegel
We will contact you next week for confirm. We hope to work with you to improve the usability/UI/functionality of new gadget. SeeedStudio will help you share your knowledge and experience using DSO on blog, from average usages in homebrew projects to hacking the DSO.
The main discussion area is the dso touch board on forum.
If you like to make a difference in the design, welcome to join the management of DSO Touch Project on trello (open board).
This should be the last give away of DSO Touch, A preview and limited version of DSO Touch will be available on Seeed later.
Adrian from TI is having a lot of fun with the Grove modules.
Using the CC3200 WiFi LaunchPad, I created a 915MHz RF-to-WiFi gateway, which aggregates data from 6 different 915MHz RF sensor nodes. Once the CC3200 WiFi gateway receives data from each of the nodes, the CC3200 WiFi LaunchPad then publishes the network data to the cloud to be visualized on a web dashboard.
Introducing – Find the one
Maybe you are already an raspberry pi user, maybe not. We made an comparison between the display for raspberry pi. To make it clear, We make a simple sheet representing the features and specs.
The simplest way to get started with Raspberry Pi is display. Power and boot the Rpi, wait until the main screen! I will never forget the first time playing RPi.
But there’s a dozen of display out there, see the list below:Yes, quite a lot of them. But there is one happy thing: most of them share the same pinout/interface for RPi, no matter what model your RPi is, B or B+, it always works. For a better choice for you, you’d better understanding the follow definition.

What is TFT/IPS?
- TFT stands for Thin Film Transistor. The Thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT LCD) technology is the most common display technology used in mobile phones.
- IPS LCD Stands for In Plane Switching liquid Crystal Display. This technology offers better display quality as compared to the TFT-LCD display. The good part about IPS LCD is that it offers better viewing angles and consumes less power. Due to higher costs, it is found only on high-end smartphones.
What is HDMI/VGA/NTSC/PAL
- For some small size display, none of them is used. USB in hardware and SPI in software is much cheaper choice.
- VGA: Analog signal. Limited by bandwidth which prevents higher resolutions.
- HDMI: Digital signal. Can carry audio and video data.
- NTSC is the video system or standard used in North America and most of South America.
- PAL is the predominant video system or standard mostly used overseas.
Notice for Model B+
The extra pinout will be covered if you use a Model B Compatible display, Raspberry Pi 3.2″ Touchscreen Display w/ 8 extend headers is designed for Model B+ specially, the pinout will be extend to the side of RPi:
The story begins with Shine.
When we got misfit shine the first time, we are shocked to see the 1,560 laser-drilled holes on the surface to allow the light from the LEDs through but still keep the water out.
BTW, this is not a new invented process, if you look at your front of mac pro, you will find the breathing led with micro holes. This is often used on high-end products:
- the holes are barely seem by eyes
- lights through, but water out
We tries to make our own micro holes logo
Back view of Misfit Shine.
We find the suppliers and conclude the basic facts for design
- a thin layer of coating after laser drilling for dustproof
- a thickness of 0.2mm is preferred
- in theory all metal can be drilled, aluminium is preferred since its machinability
- aperture: 0.01mm
- hole distance: 0.15mm
- 100- 150 holes/mins
Here’s how we designed our classic seeed flower
If you are looking for a quick and cost-effective way to get small holes on your products, seeed is right for you. We discovery, understand and adopt different kind of new processes and technologies.
Search has never been this cool! We tagged our products with it’s features, specs and even how it looks to help you choose from the mess.
e.g. no1: I wanna find NFC enable devices, 13.56 is a good starter.
e.g. no2: I wanna find some communication module to build my IoT project.
e.g. no3: I need some portable tools.
e.g. no4: no more Raspberry Pi, just rpi for short
BTW, we tested some devices for responsive web design performance. It suits great from cellphone to tablet, check our new product anywhere and anytime.

To see the copter in action, scroll on down to embedded video just before the Specs section.
Grove Starter Kit Plus – Intel® IoT Edition is a starter kit for IoT developer, it is also a complete hardware & software solution to help you explore the IoT space and create innovative projects. There are two kits which support Intel Galileo Gen 1 or 2.
Are you ready to get connected! Seeeduino Cloud is coming!
Seeeduino Cloud is a board based on Dragino WiFi IoT module HE and ATmega32u4. HE is a high performance, low cost 150M, 2.4G WiFi module which means “core” in Chinese and with an Open Source OpenWrt system inside. Seeeduino Cloud is also an Arduino compatible board, 100% compatible to grove, shield and IDEs(>=1.5.3). Except for the normal interface of Arduino, Seeeduino Cloud has built-in Ethernet and WiFi support, a USB-A port which makes it very suitable for those prototype design that need network connection and mass storage. It is also a good idea to make Seeeduino Cloud to be an IoT gateway.
We prepared tutorials for you to get started, Checkout the tutorial here.
Wanna do some electronic fashion project? This Led matrix will be the best one to get started. Being bright flexible and programmable, you can use an Arduino to control it directly.
Each of the led is addressable, meaning you can make any figure on this: display super mario, act iron man or play chess on it! The most important is: wear on it!
