The Atmel SMART SAMA5D4 Xplained Ultra is a member of Atmel’s Xplained fast prototyping and evaluation platforms. The board is based on the Atmel SAMA5D4 microprocessor and comes with a rich set of ready-to-use connectivity, an LCD and HDMI interface, an embedded debug interface unit, as well as storage peripherals and expansion headers for easy customization. A Linux distribution and software package gets you evaluating fast. A USB device connector can be used to power the board as well as to program and debug it. Seven headers, compatible with Arduino R3 (Uno, Due) and two Xplained headers are available for various shield connections.
The SAMA5D4 series is a high-performance, power-efficient ARM Cortex-A5 processor MPU capable of running up to 528 MHz. It integrates the ARM NEON SIMD engine for accelerated signal processing, multimedia and graphics as well as a 128 KB L2-Cache for high system performance. The device features the ARM TrustZone enabling a strong security perimeter for critical software, as well as several hardware security features. The device also features advanced user interface and connectivity peripherals.
Applications: The SAMA5D4 series is optimized for control panel/HMI applications needing video playback and applications that require high levels of connectivity in the industrial and consumer market. Its security features makes the SAMA5D4 well suited for secure gateways or for the IOT.
Arduino YÚN is the first member of a new groundbreaking line of wifi products combining the power Linux with ease of use of Arduino. The first Arduino YÚN is the combination of a classic Arduino Leonardo (based on the Atmega32U4 processor) with a Wifi system-on-a-chip running Linino (a MIPS GNU/Linux based on OpenWRT). We embedded the Linux machine directly on the PCB of the Arduino Leonardo and we connected the two so that from Arduino it’s very easy to run commands on the Linux side and use it as an Ethernet and Wifi interface. Historically, interfacing Arduino with complex web services has been quite a challenge due to the limited memory available. Web services tend to use verbose text based formats like XML that require quite a lot or ram to parse. On the Arduino YÚN we have created the Bridge library which delegates all network connections and processing of HTTP transactions to the Linux machine.
The Arduino Prototyping Shield Kit makes it easy for you to design custom circuits for your next Arduino project.
You can solder parts to the prototyping area to create your project, or use it with a small solderless breadboard (not included) to quickly test circuit ideas without having to solder. It's got extra connections for all of the Arduino I/O pins, and it's got space to mount through-hole and surface mount integrated circuits if you need to as well. It's a convenient way to make your custom circuit and Arduino into a single module.
The Servo Module is a high quality servo with the standard TinkerKit 3pin connector to be plugged in the Sensor Shield. The best choice to add Robotics & Mechatronics to your project. Servos are composed of an electric motor mechanically linked to a potentiometer. Arduino controls the Servo using the Servo Library. The electronics inside the servo translate the width of the pulse into a position. When the servo is
commanded to rotate, the motor is powered until the potentiometer reaches the value corresponding to the commanded position.
The DC motor control shield (DCMOTORCONTRBTN8982TOBO1) from Infineon technologies is one of the first high current motor control boards being compatible to Arduino as well as to Infineon’s XMC1100 Boot Kit. The DC motor control shield is capable to drive two uni-directional DC motors (half bridge configuration) or one bi-directional DC motor (H-Bridge configuration).
The implemented integrated BTN8982TA NovalithIC half bridges can be controlled by a PWM via the IN Pin. Interfacing to a microcontroller is made easy by the integrated driver IC which features logic level inputs, diagnosis with current sense, slew rate adjustment, dead time generation and protection against overtemperature, undervoltage, overcurrent and short circuit.
The RGB LED Lighting Shield from Infineon Technologies is one of the first intelligent evaluation boards being compatible with Arduino as well as Infineon’s XMC1100 BOOT KIT. It is designed to be easy configurable and combinable for different LED light engines and lamps for fast prototyping and inexpensive evaluation of LED lighting applications.
The RGB LED Lighting Shield uses a DC-DC buck topology and is able to drive up to 3 LED channels with constant current. The shield itself is powered by a programmable XMC 32-bit ARM powered MCU with embedded Brightness Color Control Unit (BCCU, XMC1200 MCU series), which is capable of delivering flicker-free LED dimming and color control.
The BCCU enables extreme low cost but high quality LED lighting solution, with minimal user code. The RGB LED Lighting Shield has also been designed to provide options for the evaluation of smooth, eye-friendly diming, color mixing for different topologies, and it can be extended with e.g. with DALI/DMX or Radar).
