Logos Electromechanical LLC Announces the Zigduino, a Shield-Compatible Arduino Clone with Built-in Wireless
SEATTLE Wash. – Feb. 23, 2011 – Logos Electromechanical LLC announced the Zigduino, an Arduino-compatible microcontroller platform that integrates an 802.15.4 radio on the board.
The radio can be configured to support any 802.15.4-based protocol, including ZigBee, Route Under MAC/6LoWPAN, and RF4CE.
The Zigduino uses a reverse polarity SMA connector (RP-SMA) for an external antenna. This allows the user to use nearly any existing 2.4 GHz antenna with it. The Zigduino runs on 3.3V, but all I/O pins are 5V compatible.
“It gives you the functionality of an Arduino XBee shield without sacrificing pins or shield compatibility,
