This summer, Elektor and Arrow Electronics teamed up to promote electronica Fast Forward, the startup platform powered by Elektor. To celebrate our cooperation, Arrow is offering the Elektor audience free boards for use in their electronics projects.
If you have an idea for a project, we invite you to select one of the 20 boards that Arrow is making available. Use the form below to select a board and then briefly describe your project idea in two sentences or less. Arrow will have a look at your idea, and if you meet their criteria, you can either pick up your board at the electronica trade fair (November 2018 in Munich, Germany) or have Arrow send it to you. Furthermore, participants with the three best ideas will be invited to attend electronica trade fair!

Arrow has made hundreds of boards available. Good luck!

ARIS Edge S1 and ARIS Edge S3ARIS Edge S1 and ARIS Edge S3

The ARIS Edge and Edge S3 are intended as Internet of Things (IoT) edge nodes. Based on a Renesas Synergy MCU (S1 for the Edge S1, S3A3 for the Edge S3), the ARIS Edge boards offer many features that make them suitable for smart sensing and IoT applications. A flexible multi-protocol radio module supporting Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Thread and ZigBee stacks is available for communication with other devices and the cloud. Board sensing capabilities include temperature, relative humidity, pressure and ambient light level, and motion detection thanks to a 9-degrees-of-freedom (DOF) inertial measurement unit (IMU) with sensor fusion capabilities.

ARIS IoT & ARIS GatewayARIS IoT & ARIS Gateway

The Aris IoT and Gateway boards are ready-to-use Internet of Things platforms exploiting the Renesas Synergy development framework. Built around a Renesas Synergy S7 MCU with 240-MHz ARM Cortex-M4 core, these boards have a host of features suitable for IoT applications like hubs, gateways, and mesh networks, but they can also be edge nodes. For communication with the cloud and other devices Wi-Fi as well as Ethernet 10/100 are available. The Aris IoT Board is equipped with a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE 4.1/4.2) module; the Aris Gateway features a mesh networking module instead for Thread and ZigBee. Both boards have an NFC tag along with a crypto bootloader and support for over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates. On-board sensors include a three-axis accelerometer, a two-axis gyroscope, and temperature and humidity sensors.
