XBoard V2 - A Bridge Between Home and Internet (Arduino Compatible)

SKU: DFR0162 Brand: DFRobot
This is Version 2.0 of the Xboard. The main improvement is that it now operates at 5V, making it compatible with most sensors and I2C protocol with out the need of a voltage level converter. The XBoard is a unique Arduino board which features a WIZnet ethernet port, an XBee socket, and an ATMega328. This board will add wireless XBee control as well as internet connectivity to your projects. Its great for anything from home automation to robot control. The possibilities are endless!

The XBoard is a unique Arduino compatible board which features a WIZnet ethernet port, an XBee socket, and an ATMega328. This board will add wireless XBee control as well as internet connectivity to your projects. It's great for anything from home automation to robot control. The possibilities are endless!
 
It has 8 Analog I/O pins and 8 digital pins, 4 of which have PWM (indicated by an asterisk). It is compatible with all XBee modules, and also comes with an integrated socket for APC220 RF Module or DF-Bluetooth Module. The XBoard can be programmed via an FTDI programmer or via the ICSP header. Power is provided through a Mini USB connector. You can setup a web server through which you may communicate with a remote Arduino Boards and their compatibles using XBee radios, Bluetooth or APC modules. This information can be posted to a web site,  Twitter or other services.

    Project 1. Using the Arduino Compatible Xboard to control a relay
    In this project you will find how to use the XBoard with XBee along with DFRduino UNO R3 to control some objects over your local network.
    Hardware needed:


    Project 2. X-Board V2 and Pachube data on LCD
    This project reads feed data on Pachube and shows the data on an LCD. The project is quite simple. The following hardware was used:
    -DFRobot X-Board v2 (DFR0162)
    -DFRobot FTDI Basic Breakout (DFR0065) for uploading the sketch code to X-Board
    -LCD2004 display
    - DFRobot USB Power adapter (FIT0197)
    -USB cable for power
    -Ethernet cable to connect it to router/internet

    Project 3. DFRobot AutoEco System takes care of your garden
    By following this project it will help to grow a vegetable garden, and automate some other processes in our house along the way.
    List of basic hardware to setup an AutoEco Sys:

  • 1. Romeo
  • 2. X-Board
  • 3. Light Sensor
  • 4 .Gas Sensor
  • 5 .Motion Sensor
  • 6. Tempreture&Humidity Sensor
  • 7. Waterproof temperature sensor
  • Project 4. Make an X-Board Burglar Alarm
