Working on Arduino Integration! - Time Lapse Video Arduino Ethernet Shield

Putting Together Arduino Ethenet Sheild

The Cayenne team is working on Arduino integration! Yep, we solder our hardware just like everyone else out there. This is a short time lapse video of putting together an Ethernet Shield for Arduino…thought I’d share with the Cayenne Community to let you guys know Arduino is coming!



Great stuff! The project is clearly developed enough that Arduino integration is a must and users will begin to ask for features at an astonishingly fast pace! :grin:

While you’re at it, any chance for Cayenne on an ESP8266? I’m playing with ESPeasy and Domoticz for a home automation system. Cayenne on and ESP would be an awesome combination. A $10 wifi enabled device with an interface as slick and dead simple as Cayenne would be killer.

ESP8266 on the road map as well. Probably right after Arduino :slight_smile:


I’m ready for Arduino and ESP8266.




Arduino raspi integration might be possible? communication via firmata and/or custom arduino firmware.

  1. firmata - normal io control
  2. custom firmware which involves library of the part you need to interface to arduino. this firmware will be uploaded to arduino before being added to the dashboard similar to wyliodrin

Arduino 101 Board i think is the way to go, intels courie has gone open source
besides the dual cores benefits, y has builtin BT which y think it can handle OTA
updates/config in the non conected part of the cayenne…

The module contains two tiny cores, an x86 (Quark) and a 32-bit ARC
architecture core, both clocked at 32MHz. The Intel toolchain compiles
your Arduino sketches optimally across both cores to accomplish the most
demanding tasks.

		The Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) and framework developed by 

Intel is scheduled to be open sourced in March 2016. Until then, it’s
not possible to interface with it directly; only the Arduino core can do
it via static mailboxes, so it can only accomplish a predefined list of
tasks (interface with PC using USB, program the sketch into flash,
expose Bluetooth LE functionality to sketch, perform PWM). The RTOS for
Intel Curie is still under development and new functions and features
will be released in the near future.

The 101 comes with 14 digital input/output pins (of which 4 can be used
as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a USB connector for serial
communication and sketch upload, a power jack, an ICSP header with SPI
signals and I2C dedicated pins.

		The board operating voltage and I/O is 3.3V but all pins are protected against 5V overvoltage.

are you still looking for testers for this ?

Absolutely we are.

We’ve made a ton of progress, and I’m hoping we can do a soft release next week. We’re still testing in our developer environment before pushing to users. I’ve been using it and I must say, it’s VERY cool! You can have Arduino and Raspberry Pi sensors in the same dashboard and create triggers off both.

Hang in there, you will be first person I notify when we push the changes!

Me to please :slight_smile: I am really exited to see what range of new possibility this can add

You got it!
