Topic: Creating end-product from Yun (Read 3784 times) previous topic - next topic

Hi All,

I've ordered my Yun and currently waiting for delivery. My question is this - is it possible to create a "standalone" Yun appliance similar to creating an atmega based product after prototyping on the Arduino or is the Yun just too complex or contain proprietary hardware?

Cheers,
L

Just to clarify what I'm hoping to create is a either a POE or dc/in + wifi appliance with a web interface, linux will be running apache for the interface. Therefore I would need to recreate both processors and the Yun bridge as well as the circuit.

I'm neither a hardware guy nor a lawyer, but one of the application we think could fit the yun very well is just what you're going to build: a standalone something, either poe or dc powered, placed somewhere, that you can query and command remotely
So, yes: make it and show it to us, if possible

I don't think you can easily replicate a "custom" Yun in your own circuit the way you can do with an Atmega328 after having cooked it in the Arduino Uno used as a programmer.
It's simply too complex in my opinion to manage the Atheros and WiFi chips.

So yes, you can create a standalone Yun appliance, but physically fitting the regular Yun board into it.
Perhaps in the future we might see a "Yun Mini" providing layout and size more suitable for embedding into custom circuits than for stacking shields in the usual way.

Thanks Andrea,

I guess I'll just have to have fun with the Yun for now and look elsewhere for production layouts, I suppose I can always prototype on the yun and attach an atmega based product to a pi or something

AFAIK, Dragino ms14 (www.dragino.com) use the same atheros chip as Yun and they have ported the Arudino Yun to run in their device. The device has a slot which has the SPI and UART interface. So you can develop a atmel board to it to make it a customized YUN end-point product.

That's excellent, exactly what I was looking for and open source too, thank you so much

For end users they charge 45$ plus 22$ shipping the board to Germany(US even more expensive).
On arrival the German customs will charge an extra 19% import taxes.
So you would end up spending 80$ for a board without the extra atmega already connected.
Does not sound like a bargain to me.

While this is true for a single board what I'm looking for is a way to mass-produce something once it has been prototyped on the Yun. The best part about Arduino is if you can prototype something, you can mass-produce it since the hardware is simple and open source.

This company provides exactly what I need for mass producing a Yun design, albeit at prices higher than I would like. I will be looking for alternatives but this is good advice, thank you for your input anyway

If considering this $45 includes an nice look enclosure and power adapter, it is a fairly price to test make a new product to test market. AVR board is of low cost if made by self.
