Every maker and electronics hobbyist knows how hardware is messy. A lot of tools are needed in our labs like voltmeter, oscilloscope, breadboard, wires, power supply, etc.
A startup form India designed a new platform called Evive as an all-in-one solution to build and debug your projects easily.
Evive is powered by Arduino MEGA 2560 R3, that means you can develop your code with Arduino IDE. It also preserve an Arduino UNO pinouts on the main board of Evive for Arduino UNO/MEGA shields.
Evive provides rich power options include 5-30V input, 2600mAH internal battery and a 5V,3.3V and variable output voltage.
The new platform supports “plug and play” for some devices:
- Directly plug up to 2 motors, max 1A/channel up to 30V .
- Any 4 wire stepper motor, max 1A current rating.
- Directly connect 2 relays, up to 30V.
- Drive 2 servos adjustable voltage, up to 30V.
- Port for 2 motor drivers.
A 1.8″ SPI based TFT is used to interact with Evive platform functionalities or you can use it with your own project.
The TFT is used also for the built-in voltmeter, ammeter and a tiny 2-channel oscilloscope that supports low frequencies (up to 1kHz).

Evive team provides kits for starters, robotic arm , mobile robot and home automation applications. The team claims that Evive is an open-source hardware project, but I couldn’t find the design files of the main board over the Github repository which contains the design files of plastic case, some software examples of Evive applications and some documents.
