Functioning Nanode!

This a a pledge for the bulk purchase of PCBs and all required components for pledgers to construct the Arduino compatible Nanode boards.

With a group purchase we can get both PCBs and components at a great price. Furthermore, we avoid burdening Ken with the initial cost of PCB production and then having to recoup it retrospectively.

We have received a very generous sponsorship offer from Pachube, which will allow us to finance a batch of 100 bare pcbs. Nanode uses Pachube for its web connectivty, so it is very fitting that we have a symbiotic working relationship with those guys in Shoreditch. In exchange Pachube will receive and evaluate 10 Nanode kits and spread the word to their user base.

The version 4 pcb files are almost ready for despatch to the board manufacturer. We expect to have the first boards back by the first week of May.


Pledge operation

This pledge will operate differently than others. Pledge amounts are fixed at £18 per Nanode kit. Each pledger will receive a PCB and the all of the components required for one Nanode for each £18 that they pledge. We'll stop the pledge and commence ordering when we reached a volume that enables us to purchase each bundle for £18 or less.

Warning

Please be sure that you know what you're buying!

  • Construction/soldering required
  • Access to a FTDI cable is required for programming the Nanode. You'll be using this frequently so it's best to have your own. - This may not be needed now - Ken is trying to fit a USB port onboard.
  • Access to an AVR programmer or another Arduino is required to burn the bootloader - you should only need to do this when you first construct the board. We have a suitable programmer at the space.
