Audio-Visual Kit

The pcDuino AV Kit includes everything you need to get your pcDuino powered, networked and connected to an HDMI enabled TV or monitor. If you don't happen to have all of these cables laying around, this is the easiest way to get up and running with your pcDuino.

Although this kit was originally put together for the pcDuino, it works equally well for other boards like the BeagleBone Black and the Raspberry Pi variants.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

    Just a note, I believe the Beaglebone Black has only a micro HDMI connector; thus you would still need an adapter to work with the standard HDMI cable.

    That's a shiny hub

    I bought 2 pcduinos not long ago. One for portable and one for my living room. I bought 3 Anker Astro3E external batteries (Amazon) to power my pcduinos and monitor. The portapcduino is attached by hdmi to a Lilliput 7in HD Camera Monitor (Amazon). I have a Lenovo N5902 wireless keyboard with an integrated mouse (uses a USB dongle to communicate). What's cool about my setup is that I use only one USB slot for mouse/keyboard. The other usb port can be for the pcduino wifi card (which I plan to buy shortly). When I want to program at home from the comfort of my couch I have an Actiontec wireless HD Video receiver and transmitter pair. I mounted the HDMI cord from the receiver to my HDMI slot on my Samsung big screen. Then attach the transmitter unit to my other pcduino. I can then hold the Lenovo keyboard in my hands and two thumb my way around the pcduino! Lots of fun! This is great, all I have to do to switch is unplug the single Lenovo dongle.

    Will any USB hub (5V 2100 mA) be adequate to power the pcDuino, keyboard and mouse?

    R-pi people are big on using a powered USB hub. That isn't an issue with pcDuino?

    • the demo we got from the people who made the pcduino had this hub and it seemed to work just fine with keyboard, mouse, etc. powered hubs are usually necessary for mass storage devices and other things. YMMV?

        If you search for 'USB Hub' on SF, this doesn't come up, you have to go digging :(

        • huh, noted.

          I fixed the search. if you search for USB hub, the pcduino kit is the first that comes up. thanks for the information.

  • Is the USB port hub powered straight from the pcDuino?
