The Museduino is a Arduino-pin-compatible shield with a connectivity system and remote sensor/actuator modules using standard CAT5/RJ45 patch-cord cabling.
A set of pins on the foundation board has jumpers so that the dedicated serial-communication pins can be used for inter-microcontroller communication if desired. Power is distributed via the CAT5 cabling to all sensor/actuators. Cables can be as long or short as needed.
Many microcontroller boards have Arduino-compatible connection headers. To name a few:
- Freesccale K-series boards
- Redbearlab nRF51822
- STmicro Nucleo boards
- ChipKit boards
- Seeed boards
- Adafruit and Sparkfun variants
- Intel Galileo
- Beaglebone Black (with Arduino conversion Cape)
We’ll update the documentation with each version of the board. On 5/15 we printed version 1.7.1 – we made the labeling more clear for users, and fixed an early error in a ground trace. Starting with 1.5, each version update will have a new haiku. It’s how we keep track of our progress!
