T7, Raspberry Pi 3, and Cloud9

Raspberry Pi 3, LCD Screen, and LabJack T7

Combining the processing power from today's latest single board computers with LabJack's DAQ devices allow for some really cool projects. The T7's built-in Lua Scripting feature allows for the T7/T7-Pro to operate as a stand alone device however sometimes projects require more processing power. The Raspberry Pi 3 has a quad core ARMv8 CPU, WiFi, Ethernet, and Bluetooth 4.1 however it is missing industrial strength, precision, 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 T7 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!
