I am about to pull the trigger on the Spider and I was wondering if I could ask a few questions. I am currently building a project on the panda II and the RAM is a huge problem for me. I am trying to buffer a lot of data and then write it to SD but the memory is just too small. I would love it if GHI had a board like the Panda with 4-6 megabytes of RAM. I have looked around and I cannot find anything affordable with these specs. So here I am looking at the Spider. Considering an analog data logger can cost 400 dollars this looks great. Exspecially when I may need 10 to 20.
How do I hook up sensors if the are not “gadgeteer” sensors. For example the lilypad accelerometer sensor or something like it?
How do I power this from batteries? Is there a barrel power input attachment?
Does anybody know if there is an analog accelerometer sensor made for this? If not what kind of sample rate can I get from the accelerometers?
What is the scale of the accelerometers? +/- how many g’s…
