Onion Omega 2 Setup using Commandline

Omega2, the $5 IoT computer.It is a Linux computer designed specifically for building connected hardware applications. It combines the tiny form factor and power efficiency of the Arduino, with the power and flexibilities of the Raspberry Pi.

The Omega2 is simple, even for people who are just getting started with building hardware.The Omega2 is affordable, starting at just $5.
With the Omega2, we want to lower the barrier of entry and allow everyone to take the leap into hardware development.

Control any load over Internet/ based on Temp. & Humidity | SONOFF TH10

February 14th, 2017 No comments

SONOFF TH10SONOFF TH10 /TH16 is a smart switch version of Sonoff which can monitor and set temperature and humidity through the iOS/Android APP eWeLink. Just as the name indicates, the Sonoff TH device supports two current supply specifications: 10A or 16A. It features presetting the range for temperature or humidity. When the temperature or humidity of the environment falls within the range, it will automatically turn on or off the connected devices. It supports three kinds of temperature and humidity sensors AM2301, DS18B20, DHT11

Connecting ESP8266 with Arduino | AT Commands

November 20th, 2016 No comments

ESP8266Connecting the ESP8266 Wi-Fi module to Arduino. The ESP8266 is a low-cost Wi-Fi chip with full TCP/IP stack and microcontroller capability produced by a Shanghai-based Chinese manufacturer, Espressif Systems.

The chip first came to the attention of western makers in August 2014 with the ESP-01 module, made by a third-party manufacturer, AI-Thinker. This small module allows microcontrollers to connect to a Wi-Fi network and make simple TCP/IP connections using Hayes-style commands. However, at the time there was almost no English-language documentation on the chip and the commands it accepted.The very low price and the fact that there were very few external components on the module which suggests that it could eventually be very inexpensive in volume, attracted many hackers to explore the module, chip, and the software on it, as well as to translate the Chinese documentation.

The ESP8285 is an ESP8266 with 1 MB of built-in flash, allowing for single-chip devices capable of connecting to Wi-Fi.

Getting Started with Smallest Arduino | Digispark AtTiny85

September 22nd, 2016 No comments

The Digispark is an Attiny85 based microcontroller development board similar to the Arduino line, only cheaper, smaller, and a bit less powerful. With a whole host of shields to extend its functionality and the ability to use the familiar Arduino IDE the Digispark is a great way to jump into electronics, or perfect for when an Arduino is too big or too much.

Specs:
Support for the Arduino IDE 1.0+ (OSX/Win/Linux)
Power via USB or External Source – 5v or 7-35v (12v or less recommended, automatic selection)
On-board 500ma 5V Regulator
Built-in USB
6 I/O Pins (2 are used for USB only if your program actively communicates over USB, otherwise you can use all                                    6 even if you are programming via USB)
8k Flash Memory (about 6k after bootloader)
I2C and SPI (vis USI)
PWM on 3 pins (more possible with Software PWM)
ADC on 4 pins
Power LED and Test/Status LED

In this video you will find a detailed description of the smallest Arduino compatible board like how to configure your Arduino IDE in order to program this board.
