How to make my own board which sends me accelerometer data via bluetooth

Hello everyone,

I am new to Arduino and Electronics. I already got myself an Arduino yun. I want some guidance from experienced guys out here regarding my project which I want to turn into a product.

Goal: An Arduino based board that runs over battery (of course) having accelerometer + gyro and bluetooth(BLE). This board should be as small as possible and sends the accelerometer and gyro info via bluetooth.

So I want to make something like I described in my goal and thats it, it should be standalone and not just a prototype powered by my arduino yun.

Suppose I end up with a prototype that does this task then how can I make that in a standalone board that doesn't have any open header or anything. The final board should only be needed to powered up and it should then send the info as it should be having all the components in it.

I know about Eagle which will help out to get the pcb designed but the actual question is how to design it after I get my self a working prototype of my goal. How to get all those independent components into one single board.

Any guidance is appreciated. Thanks a lot.

That should be easy if you can get your hands on the chips used from the accel/gyro, an Arduino Nano, Micro or Mini, and the Bluetooth module. There is also barebones Arduinos, meaning you get the components and you can make your own Arduino board.

Personally the barebones would be the better solution for compactness, if you can't get the chips used as stated above. An alternative would be to buy the parts stated above already assembled and wire them up. But since you know how to use Eagle software, you should look into barebones Arduinos.

Thanks for the quick reply, really appreciated! I don't want to wire any parts. I want them to be standalone lets say an mp3 player having bluetooth, everything on one board. Suppose I managed to interface accelerometer, gyro and bluetooth then the obvious thing which I can think of is to take the barebones Arduino, accelerometer, gyro and bluetooth to Eagle(I haven't worked in it but I know what it does) and interface them as I have done in my prototype and thats it Or is there a different approach needed to understand the whole circuitry and try to eliminate components not required.

Thanks.

If you go to the [urlhttp://arduino.cc/en/Main/Products]Arduino Products [/url]page, you will usually find schematics that pertain to that Arduino.

Okay thanks!
