CodeShield for Arduino - Diyode

The Diyode Codeshield is an arduino shield (add-on board) designed to make the process of learning (and, more importantly, teaching) arduino much more engaging and accessible.

CodeShield for Arduino - Diyode

The Diyode CodeShield was developed to make the process of learning code, specifically arduino code, much more intuitive and engaging. The idea is simple: put all the common inputs and outputs on a single board......

CodeShield for Arduino - Diyode

The Diyode Code Shield has:

Inputs: switch, button, potentiometer, rotary encoder, thermistor, photocell, and hall effect sensor.

Outputs: Piezo buzzer, servo motor, RGB LED, LED, and a relay with screw terminals.

"The Codeshield is a product of the Diyode Community Workshop. Diyode is a non-profit organization in Guelph, Ontario. Our mandate is to support, evangelize and teach DIY, focusing on woodworking, metal working and electronics."

Embedded Voice Recognition - VeeaR

High quality and cost effective solutions for embedding speech or voice recognition capabilities to almost any application. EasyVR Arduino Shield is the Add-on module that rides piggyback on the Arduino.

Embedded Voice Recognition - VeeaR

The EasyVR 2.0 is a multi-purpose speech recognition module. The EasyVR module can be used with any host with an UART interface powered at 3.3V – 5V, such as PIC and Arduino boards. It is ideal for applications such as home automation (voice controlled light switches, locks, beds) or adding hearing to most popular robots on the market.


The SmartVR Module is an easy-to-use speech recognition platform that includes a vast range of speech recognition capabilities and is also capable of running as a stand-alone microcontroller without the need of a host processor.

Embedded Voice Recognition - VeeaR

The EasyVR Arduino Shield 2.0 introduces the ability for users to create up to 28 of their own custom Speaker Independent (SI) Command Vocabularies using the Quick T2SI Lite Software (license available separately).

Additionally the EeasyVR 2.0 includes SonicNet technology for wireless communication between modules or any other sound source. DTMF tone generation is also included.

A Tiny Computer on Arduino Footprint

pcDuino is a high performance, cost effective mini PC platform that runs PC like OS such as Ubuntu Linux. It outputs its screen to HDMI enabled TV or monitor via the built in HDMI interface.

The platform could run full blown PC like OS with easy to use tool chain and compatible with the popular Arduino ecosystem such as Arduino Shields and open source projects etc.  It can also run Android 4.0 ICS.

A Tiny Computer on Arduino Footprint

Early this year, LinkSprite released a powerful mini PC platform that combines the benefit of an ARM based mini PC and Arduino ecosystem: pcDuino, which represents pc + Arduino. pcDuino is pin to pin compatible with Arduino so that existing Arduino shields can be installed on pcDuino with a simple translation board (T-board). By being compatible with Arduino ecosystem, pcDuino is a platform that bridges the power of open software linux and the power of open hardware.

Use Arduino Uno with pcDuino

Use Arduino Uno with pcDuino

pcDuino has all the hardware interface that Arduino Uno has to offer.  Still, there are chances that people run pcDuino just as a mini PC and use Arduino UNO together with it. All the Arduino UNO programming can be done by running Arduino IDE on pcDuino.

Embedded Microcontroller Projects of Roger

This page is intended to be a source of information for those interested in Motorola MC68HC05, MC68HC08, MC68HC11 and MC68HC12 Microcontrollers.

Roger's Embedded Microcontroller Projects

CLOCK

Six Digit LED Clock Display - The board is driven by a Maxim MAX7219 which has a serial interface; it can be controlled by a any microcomputer with a SPI or three output lines. The board is 2.75 inches by 6.5 inches in size; mounting four .8 inch LED displays and two .56 inch displays as well as six individual LEDs, a 7805, the MAX7219, and a five pin header.

MC9S08SV16 Arduino Form Factor Board


The project board is for folks who, for whatever reason, want to use a 9S08 microcontroller but also would like the convenience of using one of the many Arduino shields.  Bare in mind that this is a MC9S08 microcontroller board and is in no way software compatible with Arduino.

Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge

"The idea behind the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge is to allow to use any of the shields, boards and modules designed for Arduino in Raspberry Pi. It includes also the possibility of connecting digital and analog sensors, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Raspberry."

Arduino Interfacing with Visual Basic

Arduino is a QuickStart Embedded system, very useful in learning both the hardware and software elements of a system.

From what i understand, the developed app can be burned into the device fully, no additional layer of OS or Firmware needed, It is all built in. In short the compiled binary can be either a stand-alone firmware(OS) or be a layer running over a Mobile OS.

Now putting Ardunio and VB together, we get an Hardware/Software Environment that is easy on students and hobbyists too.

Firmata is a generic protocol for communicating with microcontrollers from software on a host computer. It is intended to work with any host computer software package

Beginning Arduino – Mike Earthshine Electronics

Located in London, Earthshine Electronics is a source of parts and kits relate to Arduino. Other electronics or microcontroller needs also.

Earthshine Electronics

Digital Barograph made with SCP1000 & GLCD

Arduino Mega Project - Measurement and Data Logging. Digital Pressure Sensor and 128×64 Graphic LCD. Plots graph of current pressure, temperature variation with time.

This certainly is a good project for college students. You can also enhance it for multiple channels, mini thermal printer interface.

Stand alone remote data loggers must be able to take a Standard Thumb Drive for storing and easy retrieval of data. In urban areas a wireless internet transfer is better. In a desert or jungle a satellite data transfer or small flash storage, that can be manually collected and logged into network.

Environmental Monitoring Arduino - The Arduino Guy

The blog of 'The Arduino Guy' aka Mike McRoberts

The basic premise of the project is to have sensor nodes monitoring things such as temperature, pressure, humidity, light levels and so on and then send that data wirelessly back to a base station which will upload it to a web server.

Pinguino - Arduino-compatible for PIC

Pinguino Software is an Integrated Development Environement (IDE) which gives everyone the ability to write, compile and upload programs on a Pinguino board.

Pinguino comes with a USB Bootloader. This small program running inside the microcontroller is responsible for transferring your application from your PC to the microcontroller memory and handing over the control to this program afterwards.

SpikenzieLabs - Kits and Projects

It is nice to see many building solutions over the Arduino base like this Prototino. Both hardware and software of Arduino are Extensible. This gives opportunity for New tools and Solutions over this compact system Framework.

Prototino an Arduino clone for Prototyping 

One Idea can be an Arduino with a CPLD and Universal I/O driver for robotics. This can come with a Visual IDE which is close or better than the old Visual Basic 6 in usability.
