Series 6: Episode 2 – Raspberry Pi for Industrial Automation
In this week’s podcast, Charlotte Morgan talks to Sfera Labs’ Ulderico Arcidiaco, Co-Founder, CEO and Lead Hardware Engineer; and Giampiero Baggiani, Co-Founder and head of Software Development about Sfera’s recently-released product: Iono RP and its utilisation of Raspberry Pi’s technology.
This episode involves discussions of the benefits and hardware software design considerations that went into the manufacture of Iono RP, which (to quote Sfera’s website) is a versatile and compact I/O (input-output) module. Ulderico Arcidiaco and Giampiero Baggiani also focus on Iono RP's core – namely the Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller (MCU), and how the combination of this MCU and Sfera Labs’ design philosophy has achieved a dynamic module with a variety of applications.
One particular benefit of the utilisation of Raspberry Pi, as Sfera Labs explain, is that it means "using a platform users already know".
