The Nanode is an open source Arduino-like board that has in-built web connectivity. It's a low cost platform for creative development of web connected ideas.
The Nanode, developed in the UK by Ken Boak in cooperation with London Hackerspace is an incredible package. It's like an Arduino with an Ethernet shield built in. Please note that you need an FTDI cable (or similar) to program the Nanode.
- Extensive documentation and example projects here and lots more here
- Three connectivity ports: Ethernet and Wired Serial
- Works with the Sensor and Transmitter Node and Receiver Shield.
- Can be remotely configured by browser. (Note: You can not upload sketches via the browser yet)
- Can send and receive data using Pachube.
- On chip web server allows remote control of I/O.
- Completely through-hole construction - so easy to build with readily available components
- Breadboard compatible.
- 100% open source.
- Compatible with most Arduino shields and software.
- USB programming interface.
- Remote sensing and control.
- Web server and client.
- Smart sensor networks.
- Home Automation.
- Energy Monitoring.
- Machine Control.
- 16MHz ATmega328 microcontroller (Same as Arduino).
- 10BASE-T Ethernet controller ENC28J60.
