The Digilent list is much longer than Maxim's, and includes such tasty items as a dual 12-bit 1MSPS ADC ($35) and a 4 channel 4.8KSPS 24-bit ADC ($35).

There are quite a number of other sensor systems, including TinkerKit, Grove, Gadgetter, Phidgets, and UEXT.  Sometime I'll write a blog post on them, because each has its own niche.  For example, Pmod has much better ADCs, but is typically more expensive than Grove.

@Salbayeng: This make a lot of sense to use this plugin footprint of the Pmod as astandard for your test equipment for small runs. It might even turn out that the boards you make for testing your small production runs, would be useful to others.

I see no reason why a Pmod should not be programmable in it's own right. Something like an 8 bit uP could be reprogrammed via I2C, SPI, or even it's own port on a Pmod footprint board.

I will be interested to see where you go with this?

@Crusty1 .

I've been wanting to make some of my own plug n play modules (like the PMOD's) for automatic testers for small production runs, I've been looking for a standard that others use, and PMOD might just work out.

I can just grab off the shelf ADC and DAC's and  all I then need to make are relay boards and dummy loads. All at a cost point where you could make dedicated test stands for each product you are testing.

@salbayeng: These Pmods have also been adopted for use with Lattice FPGA development boards, so they can get double the use in development, which means they go further on pocket money accounts.

The Pmods are neat, they must have been hiding under a bushel somewhere!

And you could use them with any other development system with simple adapters.

@Tony Tib: Here's a link to the Maxim Pmods I found by accident...

Considering the fact that their Pmod modules are so tasty, it's amazing they are so difficult to find on the Maxim site. If you do find the TI page, please share it with the rest of us :-)

Here's a link to the Maxim Pmods I found by accident; Maxim page is here.  I still can't find any TI Pmods (other than the Digilent Pmod BoosterPack for Launchpads)

wifi more important than faster cpu

An inexpensive arduino w wifi or pi w integral wifi is is better than more cpu or ram. In fact I think the ultra cheap chinese Tablets which have android and wifi and usb for io and a nice battery. I think the cheap chinese tablet trumps a pi since they are available sometimes for under 50.

I think that my ChipKit Uno32 is far better hardware than Arduino, however with an Arduino you can find a library for almost anything!

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
IoT Network Shoot Out
July 16, 1pm EDT Thursday

Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion. Join in and ask his guests questions.
