Archiduino Base Board with 12 modules
This version of the Archiduino Base Board is a widely configurable platform that fits perfectly on Archiduino. It comes with a linear power supply and twelve configurable SnipCard modules as standard configuration. The Base Board is more versatile than you can imagine, because of the almost complete customizable layout it can take. It can be configured with:
- max 22 opto isolated inputs or
- max 11 power relays or
- max 12 SnipCard modules
With these options and the complete stock of SnipCards, the Archiduino microcontroller can be arranged in every way you need for your project or your installation.
The Base Board has been designed to fit in a six modules DIN rail case, so it’s just 102 x 87 mm wide. The layout has been engineered to bring the connection plug in both top and bottom sides, so, when it’s mounted in a control cabinet or in an electrical panel, the electrician can easily plug the cabling structure.
The Base Board needs to be supplied with 12VDC with an external power supply through the power plug. The DC/DC linear converter onboard provides the +3.3VDC supply in order to serve to all the SnipCards, the CPU board and the LCD board. 12VDC input is protected against over voltage and polarity inversion. .
Almost every module can be configured in order to fit installation’s requirements. Some modules are dedicated to specific functions as I2C (M6 or M12), SPI (M1, M5 or M12), UART0 (M3) and UART1 (M2). Some of them could be overtaken operating on firmware setup. All other modules could be used in the preferred way without worries.
If you need to fit power relays directly on the Base Board, it’s possible: you have up to 11 modules where fit them.
Power relays could be software addressed through TPIC2810 I2C darlington driver or PCF8574 I/O expander already placed on the CPU board*.
The Base Board standard is as just described.

Still under construction. The Base Board is the newly born in our house, so we will provide all docs as soon as possible.
* The maximum versatility is achievable only with Archiduino 1284 BT CPU. With Archiduino 32 CPU some of the possible configurations aren’t available.
