THIS GUIDE IS INCOMPLETE. COMING SOON...

Overview

This will show the waveform on a web browser using the RPICT in a special configuration. We will use the Raspberrypi to collect the ananlog data from the RPICT and serve them as a HTTP server.

IMPORTANT. This is not a substitute for a scope. This is just a playground for demonstration.

Preliminaries

Make sure you have a fresh Raspbian image installed.

Setup the Raspbian to enable the serial port. See the guide below to complete this.
Howto setup Raspbian for serial read

Upload the Sketch

The RPICT will require a different sketch. Download the appropriate sketch that applies.

RPICT4T4 RPICT3V1
RPICT Scope Attiny Version 1.0

Not ready yet.

RPICT7V1 RPICT4V3 RPICT8
RPICT Scope Mcp3208 Version 1.0

Setup the web server

Install lighthttp to configure the Raspberrypi as a web server.

sudo apt-get install lighttpd
sudo wget lechacal.com/repo/emonwrt3/lighttpd.conf -O /tmp/lighttpd.conf

Make the previous command is successful before entering the following one.

sudo cp /tmp/lighttpd.conf /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf
sudo /etc/init.d/lighttpd restart

Now navigate to the http public folder and install the scope webserver.

cd /var/www/html/
sudo wget lechacal.com/RPICT/scope/rpict-scope-v1.0.zip
sudo unzip rpict-scope-v1.0.zip

This will create a folder called scope. There is a configuration file inside called rpict-scope.conf which should not need to be modified.

Run the service and view the data

From the raspberrypi run the following command.

/var/www/html/scope/lcl-rpict-scope.py

Then now open a web browser and go to address

http://raspberrypi/scope/scope.html?yrange=4100

Modify yrange in the address as required.
