Archiduino CPU Manual

Manual for the CPU board of Archiduino, the controller 100% software compatible with Arduino Leonardo

We published the manual for the Archiduino CPU Board. It is available in the download section of the site, but for convenience we present the direct link at end of article.

Archiduino is a platform open-source (and Open-hardware) with a modular programmable controller, 100% software compatible with Arduino Leonardo. On our CPU board we have implemented some useful resources that, in the case of Arduino, would be available only by mounting one shield expansion. They are an RTC, an external EEPROM, a SD card (optional) in addition to the predisposition for connection with our LCD board that also implements four keys.

The added value of Archiduino is constituted by the plurality of interface modules, I/O and signal conditioning, at his disposal, which can be simultaneously mounted. The base board, in addition to housing the CPU Archiduino, is provided with 12 slots in which can be inserted as many signal conditioning boards. The boards are vertically mounted, in order to obtain a compact device but at the same time able to have a good number of I/O resources.

The main objective on which is based the project Archiduino, is to obtain a flexible device, easily adaptable to different needs. How many times we use dedicated cards on which are lacking resources while others remain unused? This can not happen with Archiduino, because the signal conditioning modules can be mounted choosing them according to your needs.

Besides the possibility of occupying the slot with a module, you can alternately mount a power relay (max 10 A). Moreover, the system is designed to be inserted in a modular container for DIN rail (6 modules), a solution that allows you to move from software development to end use in the field with a simplicity and speed not found in other programmable platforms.
