Adafruit | FT232H | USB to GPIO Interface

Tuesday, March 5th, 2019 | Technology

This is one of my favorite pieces of electronic equipment that I own. Any device that allows me to interface with the real world - and natively to my Mac - is a piece of art. The GPIO interface connects via USB to the computer on one side; two 10-pin SIP connectors provide the power, ground, and I/O pins on the other.

The FT232-H supports many protocols. I don't get into this. I do, however, utilize the digital I/O pins for standard binary entry. This allows integration with simple switch circuits and advanced buttoned matrices ( or a parallel binary connection to any other circuit, i.e. a binary decoder ( 74HC595 ) ).

A Python API exposes all basic services of the chip and allows rapid integration into any programme environment that requires GPIO. This solution provides an affordable, expandable, I/O interface to all popular computing platforms, ultimately controlled via shell scripts and abstracted through a web interface. The design encourages opportunities for remote IOT installations or extending the digital GUI into a unique hands-on physical experience.

System Monitoring Dashboard

Now, let’s visit the infrastructure side of things. With our live service monitoring, we offer a powerful web-based dashboard that checks the services’ statuses in an asynchronous manner and pushes data to clients in real-time.

Both internal (intra-company) and public services’ statuses can be reported live and in real-time using this technology. Push that idea a little further and try to imagine a Network Operations Center (NOC) monitoring applications in a telecommunications operator, cloud/network/hosting provider, or some financial institution, all run on our web stack backed by ColdFusion.

Thoughts - 02192021

Saturday, March 27th, 2021 | Inspiration

What is the purpose of writing? The purpose of writing is to express one’s self, thoughts, and experiences so they may be recollected at a later time. Writing is an excellent way to achieve your self clarity of thought and a traceable history of your own personal evolution.

It’s easier to attempt to be one’s self than it is to truly be. However, with practice and perseverance, we know that all things are possible - even the impossible.
