Discourse has a "Wiki Mode" for posts, so we are going to try that here and see how it goes!
This will be the wiki post for the Flutter Basic. Anyone with better than 0 trust level (someone with a few posts) can edit these pages or create new ones. Please let me know if there is a permission error as this is new.
The Flutter Basic is our entry level microcontroller board. It features a 64MHz Cortex-M3 processor, battery charging, hardware cryptosecurity, a wireless radio with over 1km of range, as well as a multicolor LED, two user buttons, dual 20 pin headers for interfacing with electronics, and a USB port for programming and other communications.
The Flutter Basic is Free Hardware, which means it respects your freedom. For more information on Free Hardware, please see this link:
The design files are available at the following link:
If you want to jump straight to the schematic, look here.
A basic datasheet is also available.
The Flutter Basic is programmed using a modified copy of the Arduino IDE. We are working on combining our changes with the original Arduino code tree so that Flutter will be supported by the normal Arduino IDE. For now the IDE must be compiled manually, though we will soon offer downloads for Linux, Max, and Windows.
