Early this year, the world of electronics saw something amazing. The RISC-V, the first Open Source microcontroller was implemented in silicon, and we got an Arduino-derived dev board in the form of the HiFive 1. The HiFive 1 is just a bit shy of mindblowing; it’s a very fast microcontroller that’s right up there with…
No more restrictions from high level software! Access the lowest level of digital radio transmission with this programmable sub-GHz wireless module.
- Radio – CC1120 + CC1190
- Controller – STM32F051K6
- FTDI USB interface – FT234XD-R
- RS485 interface – LTC2850IDD
- Buck converter – RT8010GQW
- SMA connector for antenna
Arduino compatibility can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people, so we’ll try to be as concrete and specific as possible. For the Open-V, Arduino development tools, and interoperating on a hardware level with existing Arduino shields.
We’ve updated our live, web-streamed demos to include an Arduino mode in addition to the assembler and C modes we already have. You might also notice the relatively new Blockly modes and a refined layout of the demo page. Go write some code and see the results live streamed!
thingSoC is an Open Source socket system for IoT development and has just launched a new Crowdy Supply campaign:
Build any IoT or Networked device you can imagine!
The thingSoC Grovey! platform gives you the freedom to choose from hundreds of existing sensors, actuators, and radios to quickly create new electronic systems, in plug together configurations that were not possible before. Easily mix together different CPUs, Radios, and Peripherals, like Servos, Motors, Relays, Sound and Lights, and then program them in your choice of Integrated Development Environments (IDE).
The thingSoC Grovey Series files are available on GitHub:
- TSOC_Teensy3x: Teensy3.x Adapter for the Grove System
- TSOC_GROVEY_ONE: Model “Uno” Arduino Clone for the Grove System
- TSOC_GROVEY_FOUR: Model “Four” PSoC4 mini for the Grove System
- TSOC_GROVEY_WIFI: ESP8266 Wi-Fi Adapter for the Grove System
- TSOC_GROVEY_I2CHUB: I2C Hub/Switch for the Grove System
- TSOC_GROVEY_GPIO: SX1509 GPIO for the Grove System
- TSOC_GROVEY_UART: USB to UART for the Grove System
You can now program the Open-V on the web, and see the results in real time. The code is compiled in the web IDE and then flashed to a microcontroller which is connected to a live YouTube live stream. It’s pretty neat to flash firmware on a microcontroller thousands of miles away and see the…

You can now program real Open-V dev boards from anywhere in the world and see the results on a live video feed! Here’s our first demo – blinking the dev board LEDs.
