SolderCore, a joint-venture between Rowley Associates and K & I, offers Open Source Hardware. SolderCore features Cortex-M3 from Texas Instruments, the Arcade Shield and the LCD Shield. The SolderCore family is a collection of development boards and software, designed to make embedded electronics fun and productive. At the heart of the SolderCore family is the SolderCore processor board. SolderCore comes with a built-in programming environment, CoreBASIC.
SC-CPU SolderCore Main Board is a complete development platform consisting of an Arduino form-factor microcontroller "CPU" board with a new and exciting software development environment called CoreBASIC. The SC-CPU SolderCore Main Board features a TI LM359D92 Cortex-M3 processor capable of running at clock speeds of up to 80MHz and provides a compact, flexible solution for rapid product development. SolderCore is compatible with a large range of third party plug-in PCBs to expand its capabilities.
SolderCore SC-SENSE SenseCore Adapter Board is a SolderCore shield developed for rapid sensor integration. SenseCore features 4 Sensor Expansion Interface (SExI) compliant sockets, for connection to 4 full or 8 half non stacked sensor boards. SolderCore SC-SENSE SenseCore Adapter Board provides a neat and rapid test platform for an array of plug-in digital (UART, I2C, and SPI) and analog sensors. There are also several other SExI modules available, including SC-TILT, SC-GYRO, SC-LIGHT, SC-MPU, SC-TEMP, SC-PRESSURE, SC-MAG, SC-WSN, and SC-WII.
SolderCore SC-TRANS Proteus Shield - Arduino Form-Factor Translator Board can be used to reliably and safely connect 3.3V and 5.0V Arduino form factor development modules. This allows SolderCore to be used with the huge array of existing Arduino shields, without the worry of damaging the shield or the SolderCore. Furthermore, it allows the SolderCore range of shields to be used with 5.0V Arduino processor modules. SolderCore SC-TRANS Proteus Shield - Arduino Form-Factor Translator Board uses a 22-bit bidirectional voltage translator IC to bridge the 3V3/5V gap. The device is predominantly designed for digital signal conversion, however, a basic buffered signal conversion for analog signals is also provided.
