Anyone who enjoys building electronic projects using the Arduino platform may be interested in a new tiny wireless Arduino development board called Oak, that has been created by Erik Kettenburg from Digistump.
Oak is an Arduino compatible cloud enabled wireless dev board, that provides users with a 32-bit microprocessor that can be programmed wirelessly together with a REST API data cloud.
Watch the video below to learn more about this fully featured tiny wireless Arduino board that is equipped with 1 x analogue pin together with 11 x Digital I/O pins. Its developer Kettenburg explains a little more :
“Oak is a tiny Arduino Compatible development board with built-in Wi-Fi and a secure cloud-powered platform called RootCloud (online IDE, REST API, and Dashboard) which makes it easy to create cloud-connected electronic devices, projects, and products.
While the Oak is fully Arduino Compatible – it also has some serious performance: it uses a 32-bit microcontroller running at 80Mhz (overclockable to 160Mhz) which is contained in a custom Digistump made MCU and 802.11b/g/n WiFi module with awesome range and FCC/CE approval, 11 I/O pins, wide range voltage regulator, SPI, I2C, Uart, and more!
Now anyone can afford to build devices for the internet of things – put a Wi-Fi thermometer in every room! Wi-Fi toys! Wi-Fi toasters! Wi-Fi all the things!”
Oak specifications include :
– 32-bit 80mhz (160mhz overclockable) microprocessor
– 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi radio built-in – FCC/CE Modular Approval
– 1MB of ROM, 64KB RAM (~300kb available for user code)
– 512 bytes of EEPROM type storage
– 11 Digital I/O Pins
– 1 Analog Pin (Analog Read)
– PWM on all Digital Pins (up to 6 active at a time)
– Sleep and Deep Sleep modes for low power usage
– Board dimensions: 0.92in (23.4mm) x 1.18in (30mm) or about 1 sq/in
