Shawn Smith who works at the Rabid Prototypes is capable of finishing all segments of a electronics system development process. As the firm has been through eight successful Kickstarter electronics project, the Rabid team came back successfully with Pixel 2.0 which is an Arduino compatible smart display systems. Pixel 2.0 system was developed as an Arduino Zero units smart display. The microcontroller of this system is configured at 48 MegaHertz Arm Cortex MO+, 32 bit, and 32K RAM. it also features a 1.5 inch display screen that has a 128 x 128 pixel colored OLED display screen along with a microSD slot. The system works at 3.3 volts, 6 digital analog pins, 14 digital I/O pins, and one analog output pin. The board measures 1.8 inches square.
It has a MicroUSB port that allows the user to program the board and get the units with installed with Arduino/Genuino Zero bootloaders. Pixel 2.0 can also be used with SD and SPI libraries and makes use of ATN pins and 7.8.0 pins. A large extra benefit with this board is an Adafruit’s graphics library that is highly compatible with every device. According to most of users it is one of the easiest procedures for planning out a pixel screen which is way ahead of the Microsoft Paint programs that were used in early 2000s.
The Pixel 2.0 is a redesigned version of Rabid Prototypes that were developed previously. The campaign has a page dedicated to the changes that have been made over the board and what were the reasons behind every modification that took place. It is not only an upgrade over the previous product but also establishes a synchrony between the Neutrino 2.0 microcontrollers and this one.
