I’m a long time reader, but now that I’ve decided to build something I actually need to write something…
I’ve a RPI3 running as a raspbian-based media centre.
I’ve just moved the amp from on top the entertainment unit to inside the entertainment unit. And it’s getting warm in the cabinet. I figure I need to put a fan in there. But I only want the fan to run when it’s too warm, so I’ll need a temperature sensor.
Second question: the GPIO pins on the RPI3 are quite tiny, I see there is a popular adapter. What’s the difference between these 2 versions?
Does it work with every breadboard or are some more compatible than others?
Third question: Once I’ve got it all working (I’ve got more questions about a suitable fan and controlling it!), what do I tranfer the build to? I can’t leave the breadboard in the entertainment unit.
How do I manage the connection between the RPI3 and the new-target, do I need to make my own n-wire cable to connect the thing to the RPI3?
Sorry, just getting into this and got lots of questions.
I figure that if I can work out all the bits I need, then I can order them all at once and just have all the right bits at hand. Rather than build a bit, order a bit, build a bit more, etc.
Looking forward to building something that I need rather than buying another toy
