Developers and makers who would like to build Internet of Things projects may be interested in the new wireless development board that has been created by Phasor Systems, and aptly named the Phasor.
The Phasor takes the form of a Arduino-based ESP8266 dev board that has been equipped with Wi-Fi communication, USB, 32 Mbit flash storage as well as a USB connection.
Watch the video below to learn more about this new IoT development board that can also be used with additional ports for display, relay, ADCs and to provide extra storage via SD cards if required, all for just $20.
Introducing Phasor. This revolutionary development board can connect any project to the Internet, quickly and economically. Phasor has the following hardware features, which we think blow away every comparably priced IoT development solution:
• ESP8266 WiFi SoC, running at 80 MHz
• 802.11 b/g/n WiFi connectivity
• 32 Mbit flash to hold code and webpages
• USB connectivity for power and debugging
• Onboard USB->JTAG and USB->UART bridge with virtual COM port
• Onboard 1A regulator to power add-on boards and breadboard circuitry from USB or external 3.3-18V power supplies
• Small, breadboardable form factor… 1.2″ x 0.8″ footprint, 1.5″ x 0.8″ overall.
• Lots of IO: 10 GPIO, SPI, UART, 1 ADC, 3 PWM
We have also developed stackable add-on shields for Phasor. The shield boards provide Phasor with a ton of cool abilities that other ESP8266 boards just don’t offer. And because they are stackable, you don’t even need any wires to connect them… just plug them in, one on top of the other. The final version will be keyed, so there’s no risk of plugging them in backwards.
• A 128×32 graphical OLED display to plot data, display images and show messages
• A relay with screw terminals, capable of switching 120V AC loads
• An SD card slot, for storing files and logs ($60K Stretch goal)
• Four additional ADC channels ($70K Stretch goal)
• An adapter board (not pictured) to connect the Phasor to your Arduino Uno ($80K Stretch goal)
