  • 1. Open Source Hardware Building Blocks LEGO for the Internet of Things. TM Ken Boak, Nanode Design. C4CC December 14th 2011
  • 2. Twenty Five Years Ago – Hardware Used to be Hard......Z80A Control Board – July 1985Wired Up whilst watching Live Aid
  • 3. If only Hardware were as simple as LEGOIt would be just like putting a few blocks together...
  • 4. Project Nanode – What We Do“Making Open Source Hardware as easy as LEGO”“ We make low cost, open hardware available and accessible to all – to help kickstart the Internet of Things”“Nanode – the minimalist open hardware solution needed to get your device onto the Internet.
  • 5. And making whatever you wanted
  • 6. Quickly try out a few ideasEven if they don’t always make complete sense..
  • 7. But start with the right platform.....And you can build up all sorts of new applications
  • 8. Quickly and easily building your Application From the parts you have readily to hand
  • 9. Developing the functionality in codeUsing small, tried and tested blocks
  • 10. Well it’s the same with Open Source Hardware • Take an 8–bit microcontroller • The building block of today’s everyday technology.
  • 11. Design Your Platform
  • 12. And Realise it in Hardware• First Prototype Breadboard August 2010• ATmega328• ENC28J60• 74HCT125• MagJack• FTDI cable• <£20 to build
  • 13. Nanode 5 – A Good Starting Point
  • 14. You have to start it somewhere
  • 15. Start with the right PlatformAnd begin to build your application
  • 16. Nanode 5 – a simple development platformAn 8 bit microcontroller platform with 3 connectivity interfaces and easily accessed I/O. Multi-drop Serial BusCloud ETHERNET SERIAL Wired Serial Network WIRELESS SRAM MICROCONTROLLER (optional) Nanode 5 6 Digital In/Out 6 Analogue Inputs ` CONTROL & MONITORING APPLICATION
  • 17. Nanode 5 evolves into Nanode RF
  • 18. Nanode RF – Unzipped • Ethernet combined with Low Power RF connectivity Nanode RFCloud ETHERNET SERIAL WIRELESS microSD Card MICROCONTROLLER SRAM RTC ` CONTROL & MONITORING APPLICATION
