ZB2

The ZB2 is the second generation Wiblocks board that integrates an Arduino compatible design and a MaxStream XBee radio module. The ZB2 updates include addition of a real-time clock (DS1337) with battery backup, an optional 5V 100mA boost converter (SMD-KIT) and an extended I/O connector. The new I/O connector is backwards compatible with all the ZB1/NB1x boards and peripherals.

NB2A -- Sanguino Compatible+RTC+DAC

The NB2 System is a physical computing development system that is compatible with the Arduino/Sanguino tools. Sized perfectly to fit in your empty Altoids tins. The picture on the right shows an NB2A connected to a NB2A-PB1 with an IDE ribbon cable. Additional boards can be connected with the same cable.

The latest member of the NB2 family is the NB2AS which has uSD card, RTC and DAC on board.

NB1A

The NB1A is an Arduino compatible design that adds a real-time clock (RTC) and a quad 8-bit DAC. There are Arduino compatible libraries for the SPI and TWI ports, RTC and the DAC. There is a numerically controlled oscillator sketch that outputs four independent waveforms. All of the ZB1 and NB1 peripherals are compatible with the NB1A.

ZB1

The ZB1 is an Arduino compatible design that integrates a MaxStream XBee radio module. At $25 (each, in pairs) it is a low-cost way to develop wireless applications using the Arduino development system. Software examples are on the ZB1 page.

PICOBEE

The PICOBEE is a physical computing board that is compatible with the Arduino software environment. The PICO1TRC adds a a RTC (DS1337) and an XBee to the PICO1TR design. The board size is 2.1" x 2.2"

PICO1TRCL

The PICO1TRCL is a physical computing board that is compatible with the Arduino software environment. The PICO1TRCL adds a a RTC (DS1337), a very low IQ regulator (900nA for the SMD version) and a prototyping area to the PICO1TR design. The board size is 2.1" x 1.65"

PICO

The PICO1TR is a physical computing board that is compatible with the Arduino software environment. The board size is 2.1" x 1". All I/O pins from the ATmega328 are brought out on 2 rows of 14 pins (300mil spacing). The voltage regulator is adjustable -- 3.3V to 5V,

PICO1TRC

The PICO1TRC is a physical computing board that is compatible with the Arduino software environment. The PICO1TRC adds a a RTC (DS1337) and a prototyping area to the PICO1TR design. The board size is 2.1" x 1.65"

PICO LED MATRIX

The video (right, top) shows a PICO1TR mounted to a PICO1TR-LED-S LED matrix. The 10x10 matrix requires eleven I/O lines. The remaining nine ATmega328 I/O lines are connected to a header. The LEDs are mounted on the bottom side of the PICO1TR-LED-S and the PICO1TR is on the opposite side.
