AttoDuino – Turbocharged, Wireless, Arduino Compatible

It’s like an Arduino on steroids – built-in bluetooth, battery management, and floating-point coprocessor, in a small, simple package.

We love Arduino. But we wanted more power. So, we created the AttoDuino. It’s Arduino compatible, but with a lot more power.

Basically, it’s like an Arduino on steroids. The main chip is an ARM M4F, with a math coprocessor, running at 80 MHz. It’s completely wireless, with built-in bluetooth, and can be programmed by bluetooth as well.

Battery charging and voltage regulation are also onboard, making it simple to use.

Powerful – The AttoDuino features an fast ARM processor with a built-in floating point coprocessor. Low power consumption, tons of input and output pins, and the familiar, easy to use Arduino development environment make the Atto perfect for everyone, from the beginner who is just getting started, to the expert in need of serious computational power.

Wireless – With on-board bluetooth, the the Atto allows for fast, easy to use wireless communication, as well as wireless programing.

Simple – The AttoDuino uses the familiar Arduino environment, so you’ll be up and running in no time. The AttoDuino can be run from an external power supply or a battery – a battery charger and voltage regulator are built in, making integration a snap.

Much like the PC revolution that started in the 1980s, the microcontroller revolution has continued to grow. Since the introduction of Arduino in 2005, the platform has grown exponentially, with over a million devices in the wild.

And with good reason – Arduino makes it possible to harness the full features of a microcontroller, while making it easy to learn and use.

But as times change, demands change, and technology improves. The AttoDuino was developed to add computational power, wireless, and battery support, all while keeping things small, low-power, and easy to use.

Stretch Goal – DSP filters! We have developed some powerful, but extremely easy to use software to emulate common analog filters for signal processing. These include RC filters (highpass, lowpass, and “leaky integrator”), two-pole filters (highpass and lowpass), and some more advanced functions, such as derivative and running statistics (standard deviation, mean).

If this Kickstarter reaches $50,000 or greater, they will document and release these codes, under an open-source license. Note that although these codes take full advantage of the AttoDuino’s floating-point coprocessor, they will work on any Arduino platform as well.
