PiLeven Arduino Compatible Expansion for Raspberry Pi
This is the PiLeven Arduino Compatible Expansion for Raspberry Pi, an Arduino Uno compatible board that fits directly onto a Raspberry Pi, giving you the best of both worlds. You can run a full operating system on the Pi with whatever high-level management software you like, while using the PiLeven for I/O using its Arduino R3 shield headers.
The two boards communicate with each other via a serial connection passed through the Raspberry Pi header. They can also use I2C to communicate.
No custom programming interface is required, you can use the unmodified Arduino IDE or any Arduino Uno compatible programming method for the PiLeven.
The PiLeven also features a switchmode power supply which is passed through to the Raspberry Pi, allowing you to run them using any 7-18Vdc power supply. Very handy!
Note: Raspberry Pi not included.
- ATmega328P MCU at 16MHz
- 5V operation with level shifters to communicate with Raspberry Pi at 3.3V
- High efficiency switchmode power supply that can also power the Raspberry Pi (input 7-18Vdc)
- Reprogram the PiLeven from the Raspberry Pi
- Arduino R3 headers for full shield compatibility
- Prototyping area to add your own parts
- Fits both Raspberry Pi model B and model B+
