Raspberry Pi enthusiasts, hobbyists or students looking to create their very own DIY Raspberry Pi weather station are sure to enjoy this new tutorial published to the Hackster.io website. Displaying weather data such as humidity, temperature and successive weather forecast using 4D Systems’ 4DPi-35-II Raspberry Pi display. The 4DPi-35-II is a 3.5″ offers users a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels and acts as the primary display for the Raspberry Pi, plugging directly on top of a Raspberry Pi. The project builds on the Pi Weather Station system created by Instructables member ‘jimk3038”.
Hackster.io member 4D makers, that consist of a group of curious engineers and enthusiasts who finds great satisfaction in creating and building anything from electronics explain more about their latest project.
The 4DPi-35-II screen displays the primary output which is normally sent to the HDMI or Composite output. It features an integrated Resistive Touch panel, enabling the 4DPi-35-II to function with the Raspberry Pi without the need for a mouse. Communication between the 4DPi-35-II and the Raspberry Pi is interfaced with a high speed 48Mhz SPI connection, which utilises an on-board processor for direct command interpretation and SPI communication compression, and features a customised DMA enabled kernel. The 4DPi-35-II is designed to work with the Raspbian Operating System running on the Raspberry Pi, as that is the official Raspberry Pi operating system. It also supports the new PIXEL addition to Raspbian.
