Red Pitaya Blog
Whether you want to measure temperature, vibration, movement -or more- we have developed a new extension module compatible with Grove modules from Seeed®.
The headers enable you to directly connect a variety of different Arduino Uno shields. You can find a wide range of Arduino Uno shields for all sorts of projects, so just find your desired shield and plug it into the extension module. For this, unlike using Grove modules you will need to read raw data from the analog or digital pins using the “Red Pitaya” section in the Visual Programing Interface. The Extension module can be powered from the external power supply via a micro usb connector. A set of nine JUMPERS is used for reconnecting certain extension module connectors to different E1* or E2* pins or changing power supply settings. For example: With Jumper 2 you can set your voltage level (VCC) on Extension module to be 5V or 3.3V. With J1 and J3 you can set source of VCC- external or from Red Pitaya. The Extension module, basically, is nothing more than expanded Red Pitaya’s extension connectors E1 and E2, so there is no reason not to use it for different approaches like through SCPI or API-s. A full schematic of the Extension module is available on our web page. Don’t forget to check our videos with examples.
