Olympia Circuits shows Arduino datalogger and Arno Add-Ons at Maker Faire 2013

Olympia Circuits is best known for its Arno board and Arno Shield, which are designed to ease the Arduino learning curve by providing a bevy of pre-wired sensors and controls along with detailed instructions for several DIY projects. The company announced a couple of new products at Maker Faire this past weekend: the Arno Digital RGB Add-On and the SODA HE-1.0 Arduino datalogger. With the former, your Arno simply gains three RGB LEDs, while the latter stands for "Simple, Open Data Acquisition, High Efficiency." It's an Arduino board with screw terminals designed around Atmel's ATmega32u4 that features a real-time clock (RTC) with battery backup, a high-precision ADC and a microSD card slot. The RTC can either wake the entire board or trigger an interrupt at set intervals, which makes the board very power efficient when used in the field. Olympia Circuits will be updating its website with more info shortly (including availability and pricing). Until then, don't miss our hands-on gallery below.

Spreadsheet Updates...

I've found more Arduino-compatible boards ('328- and '32u4-based) to add to the spreadsheet... there are always more! Plus I need to add the new official Arduinos, so: I have mixed feelings about Arduino hardware. Their official boards have diversified in odd directions, and non-official versions keep doing everything better. For instance, it's strange that with so much going on on a Leonardo board, there's still no 3.3V/5V switch or jumper.

Announcing the Arno Kit, an Arduino-compatible “Beginner Kit on a Board”

Kevin and Peter Gould from Olympia Circuits started selling their own Arduino-compatible LeOlympia development boards at the various Maker Faires. In the course of demoing and talking to people they recognized the need for something even simpler to get people into the world of programming microcontrollers. The result is the [...]
