Using an SD Card for storage with STRUIX

posted Sep 11, 2011, 10:16 AM by Project Struix

Well, it's been a long and lazy summer.  We've been away for the last while, but are now back with more great projects for STRUIX!

The latest project is how to add a micro SD card for storage with the STRUIX system.  This has been done and repeated countless times before, but we think this is a pretty bulletproof and robust implementation that will go wherever you decide to deploy it.  Besides, it's for STRUIX!

It's project #6 on the navigation bar.

Build an AVR In Circuit Programmer (ISP)

posted Jul 31, 2011, 9:37 AM by Project Struix

Sophisticated developers agree - Another hardware tool for your Atmel toolbox is to consider building an In Circuit Programmer or ISP.

This one has capabilities similar to the legacy Atmel AVRISP - also known as the 'mature' AVR ISP.

It's project #5 in the STRUIX Projects list in the navigation bar.

Signature Orange PC Boards are in! - Sort of...

The project has finally received the first production run of PC boards - in our signature color ORANGE!  Protopad I & II, XBEE and Powerpad.

The fabricator still has a bit of work on getting the color just right (so do we for that matter), so we are putting them ON SALE at 50% off, til we run out - boards only (no parts).  They are functional boards, just a little bit off color.

Check them out on the SALE page.

Multiprogramming Tutorial Added

To make application development and programming the STRUIX stack easier, a tutorial on Multiprogramming has been added.  Here your will find instructions and downloads to enable programming the entire stack - or just a single CPU.

Also included in the download section is a version of Ruby::XBee, with added features, specifically tailored to STRUIX.  Ruby::XBee is a set of ruby scripts used to configure XBee radios on the fly.

It's #4 in the STRUIX Projects list on the navigation bar.

Building applications without the Arduino IDE

Tired of not having all your nifty Linux development tools at your fingertips for Arduino?  Well, you're in luck!  A new tutorial has been added, detailing the necessary steps to build and up applications outside of the Arduino IDE.

The method is generic and will work for all Arduino based platforms, including STRUIX.

This is a key first step in multiprogramming, as it opens the door to developing larger and powerful multi-processor applications, but don't worry - it'll work just fine for your single program applications as well.

It's #3 in the STRUIX Projects list on the navigation bar. Enjoy!

Project STRUIX Launched

02-JUL-2011

Finally - the official launch of the Project STRUIX website.

We are excited to further the capabilities of the Arduino based community, through the creation of a system to explore multiprocessor physical computing.  By offloading multiple tasks onto separate processors, computing power and throughput is increased.  Processor overload is minimized.  Processors can communicate by an arbitrated buss system (TWI/I2C) and wirelessly.

Explore, create and enjoy.
