WELCOME TO NOVEL DEVICES

Welcome! This website has three sections covering Raspberry Pi, Arduino and ESP8266. Each section has a quick-start guide, information on how to build a variety of projects together with the associated software plus tips on avoiding common problems, programming for LCD and 7-segment LED displays, book recommendations and so on.

For projects and articles on the Raspberry Pi.

For projects and articles on the ESP8266.

Following the falling out of Arduino and its manufacturers, the Arduino still exists with its old name in the USA but has a new name of Genuino in the rest of the world. Until I have time to make the changes, the Arduino name will continue to be used on this website. URLs that contain Arduino will remain unchanged so that existing bookmarks and links will still work.

Each of the topics on the left has its own web page that explains the requirement or problem and how to implement or solve it.

ABOUT THE WEBSITE

This site is designed to work with the current generation of browsers and I have tested it with IE9, Chrome and Firefox. They are all supposed to conform to web standards and they do to a greater or lesser degree - the thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from! Some older browsers might not be able to display every aspect of the design as it is intended to look, nor some of the special characters. I have deliberately avoided CSS3 features.
