Re: radio in micro:bit

You can't use the bluetooth on the micro:bit with MicroPython -- there isn't enough memory for that.

Re: radio in micro:bit

One of the distinguishing features of the Python programming language is that it doesn't use parens like ( and ) or braces like { and } or keywords like BEGIN and END to denote blocks of code, like other programming languages do, but instead it relies on indentation -- that is, the amount of white s...

Re: MLX90621 hardware

On the other hand, have you looked at the simple PIR sensors? They could detect human presence much easier.

Re: MLX90621 hardware

This is oddly specific. I don't have any experience with this particular sensor, but looking at the datasheet at https://www.melexis.com/en/product/MLX90621/Far-Infrared-Sensor-Array-High-Speed-Low-Noise is seems that it should be relatively easy to implement an I²C driver for communicating with it....

Re: Default off for output pins on esp8266

Many of ESP8266's pins don't stay high-z on boot, but are instead used for the bootloader for signalling various things. gpio0, gpio2 and gpio15 select the boot mode, gpio1, gpio2 and gpio3 give debugging serial output, etc. Since the bootloader is hardcoded and doesn't allow disabling this, there i...

Re: Bringing MQTT to generic MicroPython boards

Five pins! This is an interesting protocol, with two clock lines. What is it? Is there any particular reason for choosing that over the standard SPI or I2C buses? Can those pins be shared with the SPI bus?

Re: Status of MicroPython ESP8266 project

I'm sorry to hear about your health problems, I hope this is transient and you will get better soon. I think it's a great shame that you are only now starting to work on the sensor drivers. I was hoping that actually using the machine module in a real world application could bring some practicality ...

Re: [Newbie] send data to raspberry

Maybe start with the examples in the "examples" directory?

Re: Can the pyboard do OTA updates?

Considering that it doesn't have any remote connectivity, I wonder how you imagine the "over the air" part.
