True low cost arduino

February 19th, 2012 by Miguel Ferreira | In: Arduino

With half a dozen euros is an arduino, stable and functional.
Bill of material:
– 1 ATMEGA328p
– 1 16 MHz Xtal
– 1 USB2Serie
Some hard wire
A white plate of experiences and it's all šŸ™‚
Didn't have the exact value of account that this cost me, but plan to add these pieces all as a kit to sell, the low-cost course.

Soon I'll post more about this topic.

Meteorological Station (Arduino ATMEGA328)

June 29th, 2011 by Miguel Ferreira | In: Arduino, Arduino, Blog, Electronics, Programming, projects

Since some time I have been to develop a meteorological station for the Free Flight Club of Caramulo with an Internet connection to update in real time….

Arduino + ENC28J60 - EstaĆ§Ć£o Meteo de testesThis spaghetti of wires is only one Arduino (changed to 20 MHz) with a network card based on chip ENC28J60 (better than Wiz official), is so linked only to tests of UPTIME and reliability. So far has an uptime of about 2 months and, taking into account that my cat engraƧou with temperature sensor…

The first version I made this station is based on the Arduino UNO with the official network adapter (The Wiz between 25 and 50 euros) – A huge waste of money, the second is based on the same in the arduino but this time with a much cheaper (between 14 the 30 euros) and without doubt much more reliable

Now, I am trying to remove all of the potential problems that can happen to me – that being said the main source of problems is the own arduino… Result: use the ATMEGA328 for its ease of programming and information quantity, but on a plate made by me, thus reducing costs and making the project a lot more functional.
