Our Stepper motor shield was tested successfully on top of the Galileo Board from Intel - it worked with the same software as for Arduino UNO - please watch the video
Available now, the Arduino IDE Compatible Smart Temperature and Humidity sensor (ASK/OOK modulation) and a ASK/OOK Shield for receiving the data
ASK 433.92 Receive Shiled
price: 18.00 EUR
ASK Temperature & Humidity Sensor with enclosure 35.00 EUR
Arduino Steper Motor Driver - price 38.99 Eur
This shield is based on L6470 dSpin Motion Controller can drive two 1.5A steppers independant of each other. By stacking 2 shields together it can drive 4 motors. This sheld requres an external power supply of 12V DC or 24V DC (depending on the motors)
Main applications are robotics, small CNCs, 3D printers and many others. This shield is compatible with Arduino UNO, and is using the SPI interface for comunication. Two more IO s are used to signal the Error Flag and Busy Flag to the CPU. When stacking two shields together the humpers on the shield have to be set to accomodate this scenario. The shieds is not taking any power from the Arduino UNO board by having his own 5V regulator fitted on the PCB. A functional arduino (V1.0) example project is available for download which demonstrates most of the features of the driver. Stepper motors will be on sale for this shield soon.
Arduino FSK Transceiver 433.92 MHz Shield
The RF Transceiver Shield is an Arduino-compatible expansion board (“shield”) that gives your Arduino the ability to both receive and transmitt radio signals transmitted on the unlicensed bands of 315, 433, 868 and 915 MHz bands using FSK (Frequency Shift Keying), ASK (Amplitude Shift Keying) or OOK (On-Off Keying) modulation.
ASK signals at 433MHz are very commonly used by consumer electronics devices including weather stations, power consumption meters, security systems, and home automation controllers.The RF transceiver used is RF12 from Hope Electronics, this means that the shield is using SPI.
The advantages of SPI are that it runs at a higher data rate, and it has separate input and output connections, so it can send and receive at the same time. It uses one additional line per device to select the active device, so more connections are required if you have many devices to connect. Most Arduino projects use SPI devices for high data rate applications such as Ethernet and memory cards, with just a single device attached.
Arduino releases (from release 0019) include a library that allows communication with SPI devices. SPI has separate input (labeled “MOSI”) and output (labeled “MISO”) lines.
Product Code ARD-RF433-SHL
Wireless FSK Temperature and Humidity sensor
This temperature and humidity sensor is compatible with our Arduino RF 433.92 MHz ShieldandUSB RF 433.92 MHz Transceiver module . The sensor is using the SHT11 sensor from Sensirion. and is powered from 2 AA alkaline batteries with a life span of min 6 months and maximum of 18 months based on a 2.5 min transmitting cycle.
This sensor comes with Aduino 1.0 demo sketch, and is pre-programmed to send temperature and humidity measurements every 4 seconds. The sensor can be purchased with ABS eclosure, or just the PCB (fully tested) and will be delivered in two versions, with integrated pcb antenna, or external antenna for extended range. The sensor can be programmed via programing cable (ISP connector)
*Sensor in the picture is with integrated pcb antenna.

DDS - Direct Digital Syntesizer
The AD9851 is a highly integrated device that uses advanced DDS technology, coupled with an internal high-speed, high performance D/A converter, and comparator, to form a digitally-programmable frequency synthesizer and clock generator function. When referenced to an accurate clock source, the AD9851 generates a stable frequency and phase-programmable digitized analog output sinewave. This sinewave can be used directly as a frequency source, or internally converted to a square wave for agile-clock generator applications.
