buyzero.de (Online Shop)

Our onlineshop buyzero.de offers you an extensive lineup of Maker products & products for embedded development.

The Raspberry Pi (including the popular Pi 4!) and our Google Coral.ai and AIY lineup are in the center of our product range.

We carry the entire choice of Raspberry Pi Trading products, and many popular brands (Pimoroni, Adafruit, SK Pang Electronics and many more)

In our blog you can expect blog posts about technology and business topics, of course about the Raspberry Pi, but also a wide variety of topics related to Industrie 4.0, IoT, and machine learning - for example about the popular MQTT protocol, Python and Linux embedded development, and much more. Blog entries are not scheduled and not in particular order - the topics are an eclectic mix of what comes up in real life of a company engaged in machine learning & Raspberry Pi embedded adventures.

My (Max') attitude is to post about topics which take up significant time for research and experimentation, and which are not well-documented elsewhere. And of course, also some rather emotional topics about how to do business properly.

If you resonate with what I write, my advice is for hire in the form of consulting. I love to rant about bad user interface and business design, and brainstorm workable solutions with you. Possibly the best money you will ever spend.

Turn off the Adafruit Capacitive Touch PiTFT Plus Display (#2423) on power-off

Von Maximilian Batz | 2021-02-19

Using a device tree overlay it is easy to turn off the Adafruit display backlight once the Pi goes into power-off state.Simply add the following line to the end of /boot/config.txtdtoverlay=gpio-poweroff,gpiopin=18,active_low=“y“This will drive this particular pin #18 (which is responsible for the backlight on the Adafruit PiTFT display) low on shutdown, and will keep it […]

Controlling LEDs on Alpine Linux using the command line

Von Maximilian Batz | 2020-11-06

We have developed an embedded Raspberry Pi Compute Module carrier board for industrial use: the PCCB. As you can see, there are three (directly) user programmable LEDs on the PCCB: USER / INFO / ACT. These are defined in the device tree. For example, we can define the following in our device tree overlay: //LEDs […]
