What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

What is danyboard M0?

Danyboard M0 is an open-source electronics prototyping platform. It is equipped with:  

  • MCU Atmel SAMD21 32bit ARM Cortex M0+ 
  • Wi-Fi 2.4GHz
  • MicroSD Reader 
  • RTC
  • Li-Po charger 

The board includes a Li-Po charging circuit that allows the danyboard M0 to run on battery power or external 5V, charging the Li-Po battery while running on external power. Switching from one source to the other is done automatically.

Danyboard M0 is designed to provide an efficient, fast, simple and cost effective solution to create IoT and wearable devices. But the board can also drive a robotic arm, located in the other side of the world, using internet :) .

Danyboard M0 is easily programmable and 100% compatible with the Arduino IDE. It is also compatible with services similar to Blynk etc.

Technical Specs 

 

Pinout

How to work the Wi-Fi? 

The Wi-Fi module is an ESP-WROOM-02 with FCC and CE certification.. It is a low-power 32-bit MCU Wi-Fi module based on ESP8266 chip.

The wifi module interacts with the microcontroller via a serial bus.

 

You can control the wifi module via the classics AT commands, typically used with ESP8266, or by using a library (available soon) with functions similar to those of Wifi101.h library Arduino.

You can also update the firmware of ESP8266 via OTA or USB cable.

Li-Po

You can feed danyboard M0 with a Li-Po battery single cell 300mAh minimum. Danyboard M0 has also an internal battery chargers, so it will be possible to recharge the battery via the microUSB port without removing the battery. The microcontroller is able to know the level of battery charge.

MicroSD Reader

Danyboard M0 has also a microSD reader. So you can write data to a microSD or read them. The microcontroller uses the SPI bus to communicate with the microSD. A pin of the board can be used to detect the presence or absence of the a memory card.

A pin of the board can be used to detect the presence or absence of the a memory card.

USB Host

You can connect USB devices to danyboard M0 using the microUSB port. For example, you can connect a keyboard, a mouse, a pendrive etc. Danyboard M0 can also become a mouse, keyboard, etc. It’s very useful for some applications.

Video Demo

In this video, I'm experimenting the switching on and off of two LEDs via the browser of a smartphone.

First test with Blynk app.

Oscilloscope | Danyboard M0 & µPanel 

This example takes advantage of the µPanel capability to implement dynamic and real-time panels. The presented code implements a simple oscilloscope, with input channel and sample rate selectable by the user. The sample rate can be chosen between 1 Hz and 1 kHz.

Danyboard Arduino Dock

Given the numerous requests, I wanted to design a dock to make Danyboard M0 compatible with Arduino shield. 

The Dock is a KIT very easy to assemble with very few electronic components. On the dock there is a DC connector (2.1x5.5 mm) used to power the board with a wall power supply (6-12V). 

Here are some pictures (3D rendering)

 

 

Danyboard Relay Dock

The Danyboard RELAY DOCK is equipped with 2 miniature Relays. The relay characteristics are shown in the table below. 

On the dock there is a DC connector to power the whole board. If desired, the relays can also operate with power from the USB, I do not recommend. 

Also on the dock it is also present the holes of Danyboard M0 pin. 

You will find Danyboard Relay Dock at €15,00 only on kickstarter.

Why I need your help?

At present, I need funds to continue developing other open source projects. I most need funds to buy large amounts of component to offer my projects at a very low price.

Risks and challenges

About this product, I first made two prototypes that I improved with time, until I had this final version, which is the perfect version of my product about software and hardware. So as regards the design of the product, there are no risks.
After closing the kickstarter campaign, the challenge is to be able to achieve in the shortest time the boards to send them to my investors. About this, I get already organize myself about the procedures and the time to be able to successfully complete my purpose.
