On Kickstarter: Digispark Pro – tiny, Arduino ready, mobile & usb dev board!

20140414 - digisparkpro_4

The tiny Arduino IDE ready, usb and mobile dev board and ecosystem – cheap enough to leave in any project! Wi-fi, BLE, and 25+ shields!

Serial over USB debugging, USB programmable, 14 i/o, SPI, I2C, UART, USB Device Emulation, Mobile Development Ready, Optional BT, BLE, Mesh, and Wi-Fi.

The super small, dirt cheap, always open source, Arduino compatible, USB (and Mobile and Wireless!) development (and production) platform, and follow-up to the original Digispark.

Easier to use, more pins, more program space, more features, more reliable – supporting the entire existing Digispark ecosystem of 25+ shields and adding Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, BLE shields and more! Ready for all your projects – including mobile hardware development! All still super affordable!

The Digispark Pro Ecosystem is the cheapest, Arduino compatible development platform for Mobile and Wireless hardware development.

Connectivity and wireless:

Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, BLE, Mesh shields: The Digispark Pro is backwards compatible with all existing Digispark shields – and it has some shields exclusive for the Pro including: a Wi-Fi shield, a Bluetooth Classic shield, a Bluetooth 4.0/Low Energy Shield, and a nRF24L01+ low cost mesh networking shield. These low cost shields make the Digispark Pro the cheapest way to jump into Internet of Things, Mobile, and Wireless development!

I2C, SPI, UART, LIN, USI: The Digispark Pro is ready to connect to just about any peripheral – it has stand alone SPI, a UART (with LIN capabilties), and I2C that is shared with a USI bus – which could act as a second SPI or UART for advanced users. This gives it all the bus options of an Arduino Uno and more!

The Specs:

  • Compatible with Arduino IDE 1.5 (OSX/Win/Linux)
  • Fully signed drivers and executable for easy installation
  • USB programming, USB device emulation, USB-CDC virtual serial port emulation
  • 16 Mhz AVR MCU – using a true 16Mhz precision crystal
  • 16KB Flash Memory (14.5K+ after bootloader)
  • Serial over USB debugging and communication!
  • 14 i/o Pins (2 shared with USB)
  • I2C, true SPI, UART, LIN, and USI
  • ADC on 10 pins
  • 3 PWM Channels (which can be assigned to a selection of pins)
  • Power via USB, or External Source – 5v or 6-16v (automatic selection)
  • On-board button that can be used as a reset, program, or user button – or can be disabled to use that pin as general i/o – without changing the bootloader
  • On-board 500ma 5V regulator
  • Power LED and Test/Status LED (on Pin 1)
  • User accessible solder jumpers to disable LEDs, and other features for lower power consumption
  • Two mounting holes.
  • Breadboard compatible pin out/spacing (the three side header pins are only for legacy shield support).
