Topic: Zigduino -- a shield-compatible Arduino clone with integrated 802.15.4 radio (Read 3942 times) previous topic - next topic


As I've mentioned here on the forum before, I've been developing a software and shield compatible Arduino clone based around the Atmega128RFA1 called the Zigduino.

Major features of the Zigduino include:

  • Software and shield compatible with existing Arduinos.

  • Built-in 802.15.4 radio with a RP-SMA female antenna connector. This connector allows the user to use almost any 2.4 GHz antenna with the Zigduino.

  • All pins compatible with 5V inputs and protected against spikes up to 30V.

  • 128K of program flash

  • 200 mA of available power on 3.3V and 5V power pins

  • RF transmit and receive status LEDs

I'm going to be going into production in a couple of weeks, for delivery near the end of Q1 2011. Zigduinos will be $69.99 each, and you can reserve yours from the first batch by sending an email to zigduino-reservations@logos-electro.com.
