raspberry pi - RPI - raspi - GPIO pinout projects
« on: July 03, 2017, 12:47:40 AM »
please post your config, building, scripts and settings.
using GPIO pinout of Raspberry family to have the joy of emulator systems.

an example:
GPIO3 (GPIO Pin 3) means physically Pin 5



official ovierview from Raspberry Pi Foundation:

physical numbering of pins





overview of GPIO pinout

>using a switch to poweron / poweroff the RPI

-you need a switch (power or reset button from a old pc)

-connect the two sockets of switch to PIN 5 (GPIO3) and PIN 6 (GROUND):

-create a script called 'shutdown_button.py'
(Thanks to Alex)
Code: [Select]
#! /usr/bin/env python
import os
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM)
# GPIO3 (pin 5) set up as input. It is pulled up to stop false signals
GPIO.setup(3, GPIO.IN, pull_up_down=GPIO.PUD_UP)
try:
    while True:
        # wait for the pin to be sorted with GND and, if so, halt the system
        GPIO.wait_for_edge(3, GPIO.FALLING)
        # shut down the rpi
        os.system("/sbin/shutdown -h now")
except:
    GPIO.cleanup()

-put it on your RPI ( i've created a own folder : /home/pi/RetroPie/myscripts )

-edit file : /etc/crontab

-set this line at the end, depending to your folder and path 
Code: [Select]
@reboot root /usr/bin/python /home/pi/RetroPie/myscripts/shutdown_button.py

-reset your RPI



if RPI is on and you press the button, the RPI shutdow.
If the RPI is already off, RPI turns on again.

>run a pc fan:

-you need a pc fan

-connect the red cable of pc fan to PIN 2 (5V)
-connect the black cable of pc fan to PIN 14 (GROUND)



with a pc fan, you can cool your RPI.
there are very small pc fans available (20 x 20 x 10 mm) from Sunon (mc20100v2-a99, gm0501pfb3-8)
