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. Continue reading Introducing the Zigduino

Wireless Arduino message board

Build yourself a wirelessly controlled, Arduino-powered message board!

Here’s an easy project which creates a wirelessly programmable message board. It uses XBee modules to provide a wireless serial link between your computer and the device. You interact with it via a simple menu system. There are no buttons (other than the reset button, which is hidden) on the device.

This project is a garage status monitor that is able to tell when the garage door is open or closed and also monitor the ambient temperature. It is based on an Arduino board, a XBee module and a LM36 sensor. The garage door status is sensed by a roller contact switch, data is handled by a Windows Service and displayed over the web. [via]
