We’re happy to report that the G120 Module is right on schedule, we have production samples and we are prepared for high volume. We are now accepting pre-orders for samples (limit two). Orders will ship before the end of this month.
As requested by many customers, we are offering G120 Module in a through-hole format, the G120HDR Module. This System on Module (SoM) is 100% identical to G120 except it exposes all pins to 0.1" pitch-pads and adds a few Gadgeteer sockets to take advantage of the numerous modules available. Rev 1.0 of G120HDR is available to order immediately and has an introductory priced of $24.95! Just like G120, this premium offer includes all NETMF’s core features and all our exclusives, like SQLite database, WiFi, RLP and USB Host. Our offers page lists the features found on premium offers. We are accepting pre-orders today, to ship before the end of this month.
Relay ISOx16 Module
No more relay-noise issues that cause processors to reset. This optically-isolated relay module includes 16 1A relays. The module uses Y socket making it simple to add many of these to any mainboard.
Need to store your application configuration somewhere? Or even save some resources independent from the application? This FLASH module includes 4 MB of non-volatile memory. We provide drivers to read/write/erase sectors and our community has been generous enough to start working on file system drivers.
Current ACS712 Module
The chip used on this current-measuring module uses isolated magnetic field to measure current. This keeps the mainboard safely isolated, even if measuring current on a 220V powered device.
Pulse InOut Module
Need more PWM channels? This daisylink-capable module has eight of them. Not only that, this module also offers eight pulse-measuring inputs. These can be used to measure pulses from flow sensors for example, but its main purpose is actually RC robotics. The inputs can be used to connect any RC receiver from two to eight channels. These receivers simply generate pulses matching the knob positions. The output PWMs can be use to control servo motors directly or brushed and brushless motors through appropriate controllers. Advanced developers can take advantage of the 50 Mhz processor used on this module to handle specific tight-timing robotic needs by modifying the open-source C-language software. This module is tested and will be available in about four weeks.
USB Client Battery 4xAA Module
This “red” module is another power option for Gadgeteer users. Pictures of the board currently show green because it is of the prototype not production. This module has a USB connector for deploying and debugging applications and uses four AA batteries to run a Gadgeteer system. The switch can be used to select the power source; USB or battery. The output voltage is generated though a modern 1A buck-boost regulator. The module allows the use of any AA batteries, from 1.5V lithium batteries to 1.2V rechargeable batteries. The module allows for the use of rechargeable batteries (but does not charge them). The raw battery voltage is available on a terminal block. This is needed for robotic applications. Production for this module has started and will be available in about four weeks.
This module is designed with an on-board transitory to optionally control the sensor’s heat element and also hosts a standard socket. The module will be offered with multiple common options like alcohol and CO2 but since they are placed through the socket, a user can easily replace the sensor with whatever their application needs. There are plenty of sensor options, even on ebay! This module is under preview only and not available yet.
TE35 Display Module at $74.95 is a cheaper alternative to the $99.95 T35 Display Module.
Sorry, no refunds for orders placed before today.
Our main website remains under continuous improvement. We have just finished the all new comparison page. We’ll be adding more products soon. We also made identifying Premium vs. OSHW offers easier by updating the offers page and adding a logo by each applicable product (view .NET Gadgeteer Mainboards to see it in action).
