Biomed Shield for Arduino 101

From Orlando Hoilett of Calvary Engineering on


Biomed Shield for Arduino 101

A sweet Arduino shield with a ton of cool sensors for physiological parameters such as heart rate and breathing rate

The features include:

  • Heart Rate Monitoring with the MAX30101
  • Pulse Oximeter with the MAX30101
  • Electrocardiogram, Electromyogram, and Electrooculogram with our Super Simple EXG Circuit
  • Bioimpedance with the AD5934
  • Body Temperature with the MLX90614
  • Ambient Light with a CdS Photocell
  • Ambient Temperature with a Thermistor

The design files and source code are available on GitHub:

Intel Quark D2000 Environmental Sensors Board

Sergey Kiselev created this small board, equipped with a low power Intel Quark D2000 microcontroller and several sensors:

Intel Quark D2000 Environmental Sensors Board

The board can be used to monitor the environment conditions, and store or transmit the data to a remote system for further processing.
The Intel Quark D2000 microcontroller contains:
  • 32-bit x86 processor core
  • 25 GPIO pins
  • Support for UART, PWM, I2C, SPI, JTAG
  • 32 KiB of the instruction Flash ROM
  • 8 KiB of the SRAM
The on-board sensors include:
  • Accelerometer and Magnetometer
  • Atmospheric Pressure, Humidity and Temperature Sensor
  • Ambient Light Sensor

Serge has shared the board on OSH Park:

Fish Food Lure for MinnowBoard

The MinnowBoard is an Open Source Hardware single board computer with 64-bit Intel Atom processor.  Jose Navarro created this “lure” board to simply connecting the MinnowBoard to a breadboard:

Fish Food Lure

Fish Food Lure, breadboard adapter for the MinnowBoard MAX / Turbot compatible boards (because you feed bread to fish). Enables fast prototyping on a breadboard, connects to the MinnowBoard using a ribbon cable.
