"PiEBridge" is an extension board for microcomputers similar to the Raspberry Pi (Pi), which is designed to be a helper for the DIY-maker in all his activities - Pi, together with PiEBridge, can perform a variety of functions:
You might say Pi already knows how to do these useful things, so why does it need more extension boards? Here is the answer to that question:
"Naked" Pi is usable in two extreme configurations - either just a box controlled externally via SSH or a desktop computer with a monitor, keyboard, and often even a mouse. In addition to these typical use cases, PiEBridge allows you to use the Pi as a standalone software automaton to perform random repeating tasks with minor interactive operator participation.
PiEBridge is plugged into the Pi extension connector (compatible with family models with a 40-pin connector) and installed vertically. For this purpose, the Pi case (if available) must have a corresponding cutout on top.
When used as a programmer, PiEBridge can work with most known 6-pin and 10-pin connectors, and GND and Vcc can be randomly connected to their pins to ensure compatibility.
The programmable power supply for external devices is programmable on/off and programmable in the range of 2.5 - 5V with an accuracy of about 2%.
Deb-packages for PiEBridge have been created and compiled into a repository:
