Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/USB shield for Platino and Arduino

Thou Shalt Communicate!

Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/USB shield for Platino and Arduino

Today all & sundry, devices included, have to be “connected”, 24/7, all year round. You may have a Facebook account, but what about your oscilloscope? Does your multimeter tweet enough? Is your soldering iron linked in? You may be a non-communicative nerd but your bench power supply may be craving for social interaction. With the add-on board described in this article you can hook up anything to everything, with or without wires.

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor Members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their Membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service. Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.

Components
Download the BOM list
The BOM (Bill of Materials) is the technically exhaustive listing of parts and other hardware items used to produce the working and tested prototype of any Elektor Labs project. The BOM file contains deeper information than the Component List published for the same project in Elektor Magazine. If required the BOM gets updated directly by our lab engineers. As a reader, you can download the list here.
