Technology Editor Bill Wong takes a look at the Raspberry Pi 3 that includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support.
One of the things to plug into the Raspberry Pi's USB is BitScope's BitScope Micro. The BitScope Micro is an all-in-one development tool that includes a 6 channel logic analyzer as well as a 2 channel analog scope. It has a 20 MHz bandwidth and is able to capture digital signals at 40 Msamples/s.
Near-field communication (NFC) is a wireless technology that can be found in most of the new smartphones. Now with NXP's OM5577 Interface Board kit, developers can pair NXP's NFC support with popular development platforms like the Raspberry Pi.
Technology Editor Bill Wong gives Cirrus Logic's Alexa Voice Capture Development Kit for Amazon AVS a spin. The kit comes complete with a Raspberry Pi 3 and an expansion board with a pair of CS7250B digital MEMS microphones and CS47L24 smart codec from Cirrus Logic.
Check out this detailed comparison of popular development kits for AVS designed to help you jumpstart your voice-enabled applications.
