    • Open Source Hardware Building Blocks LEGO for the Internet of Things. TM Ken Boak, Nanode Design. C4CC December 14th 2011
    • Twenty Five Years Ago – Hardware Used to be Hard......Z80A Control Board – July 1985Wired Up whilst watching Live Aid
    • If only Hardware were as simple as LEGOIt would be just like putting a few blocks together...
    • 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.
    • And making whatever you wanted
    • Quickly try out a few ideasEven if they don’t always make complete sense..
    • But start with the right platform.....And you can build up all sorts of new applications
    • Quickly and easily building your Application From the parts you have readily to hand
    • Developing the functionality in codeUsing small, tried and tested blocks
    • Well it’s the same with Open Source Hardware • Take an 8–bit microcontroller • The building block of today’s everyday technology.
    • Design Your Platform
    • And Realise it in Hardware• First Prototype Breadboard August 2010• ATmega328• ENC28J60• 74HCT125• MagJack• FTDI cable• <£20 to build
    • Nanode 5 – A Good Starting Point
    • You have to start it somewhere
    • Start with the right PlatformAnd begin to build your application
    • 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
    • Nanode 5 evolves into Nanode RF
    • Nanode RF – Unzipped • Ethernet combined with Low Power RF connectivity Nanode RFCloud ETHERNET SERIAL WIRELESS microSD Card MICROCONTROLLER SRAM RTC ` CONTROL & MONITORING APPLICATION
    • Finding Your Way Around Nanode RF Digital I/O Hi Digital I/O Lo Ethernet Controller Serial SRAM Microcontroller Ethernet & RTC Connector Power Glue Logic LEDs Wireless Reset Module Analogue In
    • Nanode RF –The Gateway to Wireless Sensing & Control Applications
    • WiNode – low cost RF Sensor-Actuator
    • WiNode – The Brains and Brawn of RF Sensor-Actuator Networks WiNode Power Bridge SERIAL WIRELESS microSD CardMotors, Relays, Steppers, MICROCONTROLLER SRAM RTCLED Lighting ` CONTROL & MONITORING APPLICATION
    • Nanode has been nominated for a “Best Internet of Things Project 2011 Award– Vote before Friday 5pm at Search: POSTSCAPES – your support appreciated.
    • Nanode – A Big Thanks to EveryoneProject Nanode: An ever growing family of friends and co-conspiratorsSpecial Thanks to:Code Design Andrew Lindsay, Trystan Lea, Glyn Hudson, Stephen EarlyHardware Design Ken Boak, Roger Light.
