Everyone knows the versatility of arduino shields and the power of mbed boards so why don’t to design an adapter which allows to use arduino shields with mbed? This is the schematic of our version of such adapter:
As you can see it is compatible with both mbed LPC1768 (http://mbed.org/platforms/mbed-LPC1768/) and mbed LPC11U24 (http://mbed.org/platforms/mbed-LPC11U24/) and has a USB type A connector and a ethernet connector, useful in your projects with TCP/IP and LPC1768. A DC plug and a 5V LDO regulator Reg1117 has been added to supply power to the mbed and to the shield in a very easy way, if you don’t want to use the USB as a power supply.
Microchip and element14 designed a very useful board which will add more power to your Raspberry Pi. The chipKIT Pi board has been developed in order to allow users to create advanced applications like touch sensing, audio processing and sophisticated control, thanks to the powerful PIC32MX250F128B. The board is compatible with Arduino and can be easily programmed with the free chipKIT™ Multi-Platform IDE (MPIDE) that can be hosted on the Raspberry Pi. Continue reading
A comparison of some of the most popular development board available to the hobbyists.
Raspberry Pi is one of the most known board in the hobbyist world and it is easy to guess why: its success is mainly lead by its low and accessible price for a product with very interesting features. Since Raspberry Pi has been introduced on the market, a borderline has been defined and everyone who wants to design and develop a new board which will be appreciated and loved by the worldwide hobbyistic community, must compare its product with the Raspberry, mainly in terms of final price.

There are many shields available almost for every application. Today we want to show you how to use your Arduino as a wheater station which can be improved, unlike commercial products that cannot be expanded or easily modified.
