$6.90 Seeeduino Nano Board | Compatible With Arduino Nano

Seeeduino Nano board

Seeed Studio has announced the release of yet another compact  board. The new board, Seeeduino Nano, is quite similar to the Arduino Nano board, and fully compatible. Another thing about the new board is that it has some different features. Seeeduino Nano comes with only one on-board Grove connector, but it can be expanded with the optional Grove shield adding 8 Grove connectors. More precisely, the shield has 3 Grove digital connectors and 3 Grove analog connectors, as well as 1 Grove I2C connector, and 1 Grove UART connector.   Program Code Firstly, the Seeeduino Nano is built around Atmega328P 8-bit AVR microcontroller. This is the same as the Arduino Nano board, meaning you can use the same program code on both boards. There’s no specific Wiki for Seeeduino Nano, but it’s similar, albeit much smaller than the well-documented Seeeduino V4.2. Price of the Seeeduino Nano Board The board is available for just $6.90 and the Grove shield for the …

AAEON Launches BOXER-8150AI Compact Embedded Box PC Features 8 USB 3.0 Ports

BOXER-8150AI

The new compact embedded solutions’ addition to the BOXER-8100AI family is specially designed for artificial intelligence (AI) support. According to its makers, AAEON, it has a configuration of eight USB 3.0 ports made available through four USB controllers chips. This makes it perfect for a wide range of computer vision applications, some of which are visual inspection, quality control, and facial recognition. Now, each USB chip controls a pair of USB 3.0 ports. By dedicating one chip to one pair of ports, each chip handles less data traffic overall.   This also improves bandwidth from connected devices and allows the BOXER-8150AI to maximize speeds and framerates of AI image processing. The product is currently in stock and available for purchase on AAEON online store for $1,142.00. Key Features of BOXER-8150AI Nvidia TX2 Module HMP Dual Denver 2 + Quad ARM A57 8GB LPDDR4 32GB eMMC 5.1 HDMI 2.0 8x USB 3.0 1x GbE LAN 1x COM Compact Size chassis The …

Cluster HAT Interfaces up to 4 Raspberry Pi Zero to Raspberry Pi 2/3/4 Board

Cluster HAT

Cluster HAT is a solution to the problem of building cluster computing. Distributed computing is difficult already, and this tiny hardware kit is one answer to the problem. Although building a computer cluster is not that easy,  it is one of the most impressive Raspberry Pi projects.  Why Cluster HAT? The Cluster HAT (Hardware Attached on Top)  interfaces a (Controller) Raspberry Pi A+/B+/2/3/4 with 4 Raspberry Pi Zeros. It is configured to use USB Gadget mode. Also, it is an ideal tool for teaching, testing or simulating small scale clusters. Cluster HAT leverages the flexibility of Raspberry Pi by allowing programmers to experiment with cluster computing. It is important you know that the HAT does not come with a Raspberry Pi or Pi Zero. The two are purchased separately. Pimoroni, the manufacturer, provides assembly and control instructions on its product page. Also,  they explain 3 ways of setting up the HAT. Specifications of Cluster HAT The HAT can be used …

Javaino JoC Reference Board & Module Bring Java to the Embedded World

Java-Programmable module

There is a Java-programmable module on the block. The module is going to change the face of programming and make things easier. The Java-on-Chip (JoC) module was designed by the Austrian manufacturer, Demmel. This module minimizes programming and development time of smart applications. The first thing to remember is that commercially embedded systems are developed with programmable languages, and they typically employ the use of either the C language or assembly. However, Demmel has made this new module and board specifically for Java programmers. The Java-programmable module is designed to work with the Javaino JoC reference board. Another thing about the JoC module is that it radically shortens development times.  Furthermore, it simplifies PCB design efforts and also reduces programming effort. Also, the Java-programmable module comes as a tiny 24 × 36-mm module. As a matter of fact, it offers a diverse selection of interface options.  Now, these options can be addressed in Java for low-level programming. Specifications of the …

M2M-IoT GW-01 LoRaWAN Gateway is equipped with Orange Pi Zero H2+ SBC

GW-01 Orange Pi Zero H2+ LoRa Gateway

M2M-IoT has developed a new LoRa gateway. The gateway, GW-01, is based on Orange Pi Zero H2+ board. While it is new, it has a lot of useful features. The new GW-01 gateway operates in the 868MHz or 915MHz LoRa frequencies and has -139 dBm sensitivity. Furthermore, the GW-01 is fully functional. It is also an open source low-cost solution to developing a LoRaWAN network. In addition, the gateway supports both OpenWrt, and Armbian distributions, and you’ll find documentation for both on Github. Another great thing about the gateway is that it has two boards. Also, the first board, which is on top, is based on SX1301. This 8 channel LoRa concentrator implements the LoRa physical interface. Now, the second board is at the bottom.  It is also the model that the whole gateway was based on. This board is the OrangePi Zero H2+ 256MB (RAM) development board. The gateway can also be used for prototyping. But to achieve this …

Microchip SAMA5 based Giant Board Launched on Crowd Supply for $50 and Up

Giant board

Earlier this year we gave you details about some new development board, most especially about the Giant board. A tiny single board computer that runs Linux on Arm Cortex-A5 processor.  This super tiny single-board computer (SBC) is based on the Adafruit Feather form factor. Unlike its name, the giant board is actually a small microchip. And it packs an awful lot of power for its size. The news is that it has launched on Crowd Supply for $50 and up. In addition, the giant board implements the power of size, which makes it unique. It squeezes SBC into a package the size of a microcontroller board. This will in turn relax memory, storage, and processing constraints. Consequently allowing you to effectively work on your projects. Another thing to know about the Giant Board is that it runs full Debian Linux.  Giving developers and users access to an endless number of applications and libraries for their projects. Also, it supports the …
