T7, Raspberry Pi 3, and Cloud9

T7, Raspberry Pi 3, and Cloud9 - LabJack

Combining the processing power from today's latest single board computers with LabJack's DAQ devices allow for some really cool projects. The T-series' built-in Lua Scripting feature allows for the T4/T7/T7-Pro to operate as a standalone device, but sometimes projects require more processing power. The Raspberry Pi 3 has a quad-core ARMv8 CPU, WiFi, Ethernet, and Bluetooth 4.1 but is missing industrial strength, precision, and calibrated analog inputs which you get when you connect a T7. This tutorial will hopefully help some of our customers get started with the Raspberry Pi and the T-series devices as well as introduce existing Raspberry Pi users to the idea of using Cloud9 as a remote IDE that is introduced by the BeagleBone Black. Developing directly on a Raspberry Pi can sometimes be slow as you don't have access to modern web-browsers and it usually takes up one of your monitors. With Cloud9 running locally on the Raspberry Pi you can simply navigate to the device's IP address and code away!
