The demonstrations are intended to show how blockchain technology can be used to create a secure, decentralized data platform and more for the Internet of Things. RS IoT Blockchain Demonstrators is the third installment in the series, and it highlights some creative designs as well as Digilent Pmods in action!
Many of the demo units make use of Pmod modules interfaced via the DesignSpark Pmod HAT adapter (for use with Raspberry Pi). We have listed some examples below:
- Pmod AD1 with resistor divider to measure voltage across conveyor motor terminals.
- Pmod OLEDrgb used to indicate status of run, stop or failure.
- Pmod TC1 and thermocouple probe indicates temperature.
- Pmod LVLSHFT logical level shifter used in the LeakKiller Challenge.
“The DesignSpark Pmod HAT adapter made it easy to integrate incredibly useful Pmods which added small OLED displays, ADC input and temperature measurement to the Raspberry Pi, along with level shifted output for driving the Dotstar addressable LEDs.”
