The RasPiO Duino is a little attachment on board for Raspberry Pi. It has comparative usefulness to an Arduino Uno, yet is completely programmable from the Raspberry Pi. Once modified, it can be ejected from the Pi and utilized naturally. It can likewise be utilized intuitively with the Pi. The Pi’s GPIO ports are likewise broken out on the board too. There’s a 72 point prototyping area, with GND, 3V3 and 5V rails, where you can include your own parts. RasPiO Duino utilizes the same micro-controller chip as both Arduino Uno and Gertboard.
FYI, it isn’t an Arduino clone. It runs at 12MHz on 3v3 and has a different shape, size and pin arrangements.
Likewise with other RasPiO sheets, all the ports are unmistakably marked and there are heaps of choices. Each of the pins on the ATMega are broken out to a bunch of three gaps. Male and female headers are given, so you can unite whatever you like to your RasPiO® Duino.
For programming RasPiO Duino, you need 3 jumpers to connect to micro controller’s SCLK, MISO & MOSI to the corresponding pins. If you want two-way serial communication, you can add two more jumpers, connecting the Pi and ATMega’s Rx & Tx serial ports.
You can get the kit online but will need soldering equipment. According to the guide, it should take you around 30 minutes to get started!
