- What's Massduino?
Massduino is a new product line, which combines the Arduino platform peripheral -rich, convenient and quick development, low-cost and easy to manufacture large-scale production advantages. Almost all of the Arduino code can be applied to MassDuino without modification (or very small modification), users do not need to learn any new knowledge, you can immediately begin using MassDuino to commercial product development.
MassDuino use a special custom MCU MD-8088 and MD-328D, those chips has a very unique and new design, ensuring high operating efficiency while providing a low cost of applications. INHAOS upcoming a series of application modules which is based MassDuino. The application modules can be developed in the Arduino
environment, and then direct used to commercial products, creative implementation and production time reduced to a minimum.
- MassDuino Development Process
This chapter describe how to development a product with MassDuino, We assume that you have some basic knowledge of electronic technology, and familiar with the Arduino development environment.
S1, Understand what is MassDuino, the MassDuino series products are highly compatible with standard Arduino UNO R3, So you can use MassDuino like the Arduino UNO R3.
S2, Download MassDuino HSP (Ardunio 3rd-party Hardware Support Package for MassDuino) from www.inhaos.com , At present the latest version of the HSP is V3.0, this version support chips is as follows:
MD-8088: 8KB Flash , 1KB SRAM, 10bit ADC
MD-328D: 32KB Flash , 2KB SRAM, 10/12/16 bit ADC
MD-328D is highest compatible with the ATmgea328P, we recommended to use MD-328D, in most case the Arduino UNO sketch can be used for MD-328P without any modification.
S3, Get one UNO development board , write sketch , run and debug . Currently we have below products:
MD-8088: MassDuino UNO R4
MD-328D: MassDuino UNO LC , MassDuino UNO LC Lite
S4, After prototype verified, do the mass production design, we provided below services: 1, We can help you do the whole product design and fabrication 2, Or you can do the design , we will help you make the prototype / pilot run / and mass production 3, Or you can buy chip from us , we can pre-programmed the chip or leave blank chip to you , with very good price
Need above service , please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 1: The Introduction of Massduino
There are three kinds of different styles of Massduino, they each have each characteristic, Can better combine with your design,the appearance of the Massduino - LC series has more personal, they can make your design more attractive. Massduino-UNO-CORE has a mini design, and convenient connection mode can adapt to more occasions.
Next, we will l also launch MASSDUINO-UNO-CORE with wireless communication ability.
Step 2: Feature
there are the features about the Massduino, help it can help you. The Massduino MD-328D support 3 kinds of analogRead mode, they are 10bits, 12bits and 16bits.
Step 3: Demo
Now we do a demo to show how to use Massduino.
First, enter www.inhaos.com .
and I put the Datasheets there, So that you can have a reference.
Step 4: Download the Package
Click download button, and find the package witch named "Arduino - MassDuino_Support_Package V31".
Step 5: Unzip the Package
Two PDF introduced Massduino detailed parameters and methods of use, Two folders are used to load the relevant documents of massduino.Then we look at our version of the Arduino ide, If your ide version is 1.5.0 to 1.6.5 , You can load the above folder, If your ide version greater than 1.6.6, You can load the following folder.
Step 6: Create the Environment
Copy all the files inside, next open "Mydocument", find the folder Arduino. Delete the original files inside, stick the files into it, then, open the Arduino IDE, check the board,and you will find the Massduino board are here, now, choose the board and you can use Massduino now. and If your ide version greater than 1.6.6, do the same.
Step 7: First Use of Massduino
Than we download a blink program and see if it is working or not?
Of course, it is working.
so if you are interested in Massduino or MD-328D, Contact us:
