Well, I tried “1password” but it wasn’t strong enough. Yes, Anyway, I have some ADC’s and CAN controllers. These are in the Arduino Shield Footprint. I was hoping to read/write the CAN controllers and ADC’s from my Raspberry PI, by attaching an Arduino adapter board. The data is real-time and I wanted to display it on the 7in Raspberry PI LCD display. I didn’t want to write a communication library from the Raspberry PI to the Arduino board to get the data. Of course, I could just run wires to/from the Raspberry PI to some level-shifters and then run wires from the level shifters to the shield. All very messy and would probably fall apart once I take it to the production floor. I can see getting a call around mid-night — “The red wire came out and nobody wants to take responsibility to plugging it back in — which hole should we use?” ps. I have tons of Arduino boards, and RedSticks from SparkFun, etc, etc.
I was hoping that by buying 3 “Arduberry” boards, I can avoid buying 3 x $35 CAN controllers and 3 x $65 ADC boards that fit the Raspberry PI footprint.
Essentially, even though it is true that you can “attach Arduino shields to the Raspberry PI”, that really isn’t the whole truth of the matter.
Specifically, your product states the ability to “use Arduino shields”. Which is want I want from my Raspberry PI.
“Arduberry allows you to access lower level functions on Arduino shields for more precise control” — no mention of having to go through an ATMEGA.
" Connects Arduino Shields to the Raspberry Pi
• Power through USB or the Raspberry Pi
• Fully Assembled
• No physical configuration or soldering to work with most shields. Ships ready to work.
• Credit card size, stacks on top of Raspberry Pi
Again, no mention of the ATMEGA.
So, probably it is my fault for not doing enough research, but where, did it mention an ATMEGA was included???
Anyway, now I absolutely need the Schematics, so I can figure out how to bypass the ATMEGA…
