Re: New IoT Device on Kickstarter
You should probably check the converters from TI, which have a very high configurability and device form factors.

Re: New IoT Device on Kickstarter
We think the Fairchild ICs is a good choice because of a very small size and few external component count. Also they are some of the best priced converters I've seen fitting our purpose. The datasheets is very well structured and written, they include good documentation and measurement of the devices and a recommended pcb-layout.

The LPC1765 we have chosen because it has just the right set of features and peripherals, this includes the adc, dac, real time clock, dma controller and low power sleep modes. Also on this we think that the documentation is some of the best when it comes to arm mcu's. The amount of flash and ram is good for the price.

Best Regards
Lasse, HW developer

Re: New IoT Device on Kickstarter

 What do you think about it, would it be something you would use? Feedback will be very much appreciated.

@Giango, thanks for sharing the product details. I am curious to know why Mono ? How different is Mono from other smartphones ?

Re: New IoT Device on Kickstarter
@lasseh,

Please tell us the reasons that you chose the two Fairchild power ICs and the LPC1765,

Re: New IoT Device on Kickstarter
Hi Steve,

Sorry for the late response and thanks for your interest in Mono.

Until now we haven't frozen our design, but at the moment we work with the LPC1765 as the main cpu. The analog features will probably be the direct use of the LPC's internal 12-bit adc and 10-bit dac.

For power we have two chips from Fairchild, one with a Li-Ion battery charger and a boost-converter for 5V to usb-otg devices or other external peripherals, the other for powering the internal curcuitry.

For wifi and ble we are working with BlueGiga WF121 and BLE113, theese modules are quite expensive but we think they are good value money.

We are very interested in hearing what you think.

Best Regards
Lasse Hansen, HW developer

I think this is definitely something that I could use. I believe the Bluetooth option would be the one that I would go for, although the wifi has some promise as well.

Re: New IoT Device on Kickstarter
@Giango---tell us about the Analog aspects of your design (block diagrams and types of analog, power and wireless components used)---This is what our Planet Analog audience is interested in. Then they can give you feedback about your new device--thanks

New IoT Device on Kickstarter

Hi Guys,

I am part of monoLit, a young Danish start-up.

The 21. Oct. 2014 on Kickstarter, we'll introduce our new device: mono.


A matchbox sized programmable computer that connects to almost anything imaginable. It is Arduino compatible and lets creative people easily build great solutions.

 

Website:

openmono.co m 

 

What do you think about it, would it be something you would use? Feedback will be very much appreciated.
