    Genuino (Arduino) ZERO

    Code: GBX00003

    Genuino, the new name for Genuine, Official Arduino

     


    Genuino Zero is a simple and powerful 32-bit extension of the platform established by the UNO. The Zero board expands the family by providing increased performance, enabling a variety of project opportunities for devices, and acts as a great educational tool for learning about 32-bit application development. The Zero applications span from smart IoT devices, wearable technology, high-tech automation, to crazy robotics. The board is powered by Atmel’s SAMD21 MCU, which features a 32-bit ARM Cortex® M0+ core. One of its most important features is Atmel’s Embedded Debugger (EDBG), which provides a full debug interface without the need for additional hardware, significantly increasing the ease-of-use for software debugging. EDBG also supports a virtual COM port that can be used for device programming and traditional Arduino boot loader functionality.

  • Pi-Lite - Lots of LEDs for the Raspberry Pi (PiLite Red) (CIS-B040)

    Product description

    The Pi Lite is a large LED matrix display for scrolling text and graphics. It's an exciting way to get a Raspberry Pi to do something physical and fun. It's an easy plug in add on, so no soldering or special skills are required.

    The Pi Lite mixes the highly popular Arduino "Lots of LED's" shield by Jimmy Rogers with the world of the Raspberry Pi. Using standard serial communications (@9600bps), it's really simple to send text and graphics to the 126 LED's. The matrix is powered from an ATMega328p processor which means all the processing of driving the 126 LED's is off loaded from the Pi's processor. This frees the Pi's processor and GPIO for other functions.

    • Fun and practical (perhaps display your emails or tweets in real time, scroll messages that can be seen at a distance)
    • Open source firmware (you can build in extra functions if you desire)
    • Multi function - Scroll text, bargraph, VU meter & graphics (all easy to use by sending just simple text strings)
    • Based on the Jimmy Rogers LOL shield (well tried, tested and supported)
    • 14 x 9 matrix of LEDs (for text or graphics)
    • It's serial so can be used with any TTL micro, radio (eg XRF) or PC interface (for example the popular FTDI cable)
    If you are not yet convinced, we have a Pi-Lite emulator (written in Python), so you can try before you buy.

    Features:

    • On board ATMega328p
    • High quality gold plated PCB
    • 126 Red LEDS (a White version is also available)
    • Data is driven by the Pi serial UART (you may need to setup your serial port, see below docs).
    • Runs at 5 volts off the Pi supply (49ma max)
    • Preloaded software, can be used out of the box to display the following
      • Scrolling Text (speed variable)
      • Bar Graph (vertical 14 bars)
      • VU Meter (horizontal 2 bars)
      • Frame buffer (for graphics and animation)
      • Individual Pixels (turn them on, off or toggle)

  • Adafruit Perma-Proto HAT for Pi Mini Kit - No EEPROM (ADAHATN)

    Description

    Design your own Raspberry Pi HAT, attach custom circuitry and otherwise dress your Pi A+ or B+ with this jaunty prototyping HAT kit.

    To kick off the Adafruit HAT party, we have this Perma-Proto inspired plug in daughter board. It has a grid of 0.1" prototyping soldering holes for attaching chips, resistors, LED, potentiometers and more. The holes are connected underneath with traces to mimic the solderless breadboards you're familiar. There's also long power strips for +3V, +5V and Ground connections to the Pi. Near the top we break out nearly every pin you could want to connect to the Pi (#26 didnt quite make the cut).

    This is just the basic version of our Perma-Proto HAT.  It comes with a printed circuit board and a single 2x20 GPIO Header for Raspberry Pi to put your Perma-Proto on top of your Raspberry Pi (like a nice little hat...) This version does not come with an EEPROM so you can 'stack' it with other HATs without worrying about an EEPROM address collision.

    You can customize your Perma-Proto setup using a standard 2x20 stacking header or extra tall 2x20 stacking header.

    A bit of light soldering is required to attach the header to the PCB but it's easy work.

    This hat is only compatible with the Raspberry Pi B+ or A+! It will not work with the Raspberry Pi Model A or B.

    The version we are shipping has the +3V and +5V markings in Red, and the GND markings in Blue

  • Adafruit 8-channel Bi-directional Logic Level Converter TXB0108 (ADA-LEV8)
    Because the Arduino (and Basic Stamp) are 5V devices, and most modern sensors, displays, flash cards and modes are 3.3V-only, many makers find that they need to perform level shifting/conversion to protect the 3.3V device from 5V.

    Although one can use resistors to make a divider, for high speed transfers, the resistors can add a lot of slew and cause havoc that is tough to debug. For that reason, we like using 4050/74LVX245 series and similar logic to perform proper level shifting. Only problem is that they are only good in one direction which can be a problem for some specialty bi-diectional interfaces and also makes wiring a little hairy.

    That's where this lovely chip, the TXB0108 bi-directional level converter comes in! This chip perform bidirectional level shifting from pretty much any voltage to any voltage and will auto-detect the direction. Only thing that doesn't work well with this chip is i2c (because it uses strong pullups which confuse auto-direction sensor). If you need to use pullups, you can but they should be at least 50K ohm - the ones internal to AVRs/Arduino are about 100K ohm so those are OK! Its a little more luxurious than a 74LVX245 but if you just don't want to worry about directional pins this is a life saver!

    This breakout saves you from having to solder the very fine pitch packages that this chip comes with. We also add 0.1uF caps onto both sides and a 10K pull-up resistor on the output enable pin so you can use it right out of the box!

  • Adafruit 4-channel I2C-safe Bi-directional Logic Level Converter (ADA-LEV4)
    Because the Arduino (and Basic Stamp) are 5V devices, and most modern sensors, displays, flash cards and modes are 3.3V-only, many makers find that they need to perform level shifting/conversion to protect the 3.3V device from 5V.

    This level shifter board combines the ease-of-use of the bi-directional TXB0108 with an I2C-compatible FET design following NXP's app note.

    This breakout has 4 BSS138 FETs with 10K pullups. It works down to 1.8V on the low side, and up to 10V on the high side. The 10K's do make the interface a little more sluggish than using a TXB0108 or 74LVC245 so we suggest checking those out if you need high-speed transfer.

    While we designed it for use with I2C, this works great for SPI, TTL Serial, and any other digital interface both uni-directional and bidirectional. Comes with a fully assembled, and tested PCB with 4 full bidirectional converter lines as well as 2 pieces of 6-pin header you can solder on to plug into a breadboard or perfboard.

  • Shield stacking headers for Arduino (R3 Compatible) (#85)
    Use these to stack shields on your Arduino! These are standard 6-pin, 8-pin and 10-pin 0.1" spacing female headers...with a twist! The pins are extra long which means you can use these to stack shields! The legs are 10.5mm (0.42") long, so after the PCB thickness (1.7mm/0.07") you have a height of 8.8mm (0.35"). Comes in a package of one 2x3-pin header, 2 x 8-pin headers, 2 x 6-pin headers and 1 x 10-pin header for full compatibility with shields designed for Arduino R3 & Leonardo.

    Please note, not all shields use the 10-pin connector or 2x3 connector stacking header. For shields that do not use the 10-pin header, use the 2x6 and 2x8 headers.

    Some experimentation might be necessary. Some examples:
    • You can stack on top of a Proto Shield, but not if there is a breadboard on it
    • You can stack on top of a Motor Shield, make sure you bend the electrolytic capacitors before you solder them in, so that they lay flat against the PCB
    • You can stack on top of a Wave, NFC/RFID, or GPS shield with no problems
    • You can stack on top of an Ethernet shield, but you'll need two sets of headers to clear the Ethernet jack.
