I am working on the project that requires a custom designed arduino (atmel) based board. There are boards that somewhat do the same but I need expendable/upgradable single board solution.
Please familiarize yourself with these boards for they do almost all that I need: Almost...
IBoard - [url removed, login to view]
XBoard - [url removed, login to view]
These are the boards that are nice and I would like to have similar resemblance to them:
Teensy 3.1 - [url removed, login to view]
Arduino Pro Mini V13 - [url removed, login to view]
The only problem with Teensy 3.1 and Arduino Pro Mini V13 is that they don't have Ethernet support. Versus IBoard and Xboard have Ethernet but they also have completely unnecessary features for me that takeaway input and output pins from the ATMega.
Another feature that all of the above are missing is an ability to switch multiple high voltage/current loads of 120V ~10A.
Here are examples of what functionality I additionally need:
Ethernet Relay controller module - [url removed, login to view]
A Remotely Programmable Relay Controller - [url removed, login to view]
So in short and long details here what I need the new board to have:
- Arduino IDE compatible
- Ethernet RJ45
- PoE (power over ethernet) Need voltage regulators because the power going to be about ~24V going through CAT5
- I/O: [url removed, login to view], 5V
- As many I/O as possibly ATMega allows
- An ability to expand the board to 8 relays by populating the defined spot on the board with relay components and whatever is needed to drive those relays. Basicly incorporate this [url removed, login to view] into the design. Leave pads to be compatible with multiple sizes of relays to make sure that in the future if supply of one of the relay is stopped then another relay can be seated instead.
- Perhaps a way of upgrading the code via CAT5? Feel free to elaborate. I dont want to be having to remove the board every single time that I want to make a small change.
- Not sure if this affect the hardware design but having DHCP instead of statically specifying the IP would be nice.
Another way that I can put it is what I do not need from IBoard and XBoard.
I don't need following:
- XBee socket
- No headers, just need holes through the board around the edges just like Teensy and Arduino Pro Mini
- No need for USB connector. Although if there is a support for USB then make a this type of a connector on the side of the board [url removed, login to view]:path:/usen/web/main/products/subcategory_pages/pcb_terminal_blocks_and_pcb_plug-in_connectors_p-11/495ba453-0024-4c4a-bf61-897a8daa650e/495ba453-0024-4c4a-bf61-897a8daa650e I am already asking for a quote for that type of the connection. Possibly the same connector could be used when expanding functionality of the new board with more relays.
- APC220 RF Module or DF-Bluetooth Module headers. Reroute those I/O with the rest so they can be used as well to increase number if I/O
- USB connector and the place for it. Just leave exposed pads with markings on them specifying that it is USB.
- No need for SMD LEDs. Just leave wholes so if I need to see the activity I could solder a header in the future.
For those who are still not clear what I need I will try again :-)
I need a board that has functionality of XBoard and IBoard but looks feels like and looks like Teensy or a Arduino Pro Mini minus all the xtra stuff that I do not need.
P.S. - Please don't message me directly on Skype, Freelancer has a chat function so lets use it guys and girls ;-)
