Arduberry unites Arduino shields and the Raspberry Pi with a simple, inexpensive hardware solution. Slide on, copy your code, and go.
The Arduberry is a simple and inexpensive way to bring Arduino shields to the Raspberry Pi. The device is a shield that slides over the Raspberry Pi and allows you to stack and use Arduino shields. The Arduberry requires no physical configuration to work with most shields. You can write Arduino sketches (programs) right on your Raspberry Pi.
The Arduberry will bring the Raspberry Pi and Arduino together, uniting the two greatest hacking systems ever.
The Arduberry is the simplest way to bring the physical world to your Raspberry Pi.
So What Exactly Is It?
The Arduberry is a shield for the Raspberry Pi that connects Arduino Shields. You can think of it almost as an Arduino, built for the Raspberry Pi. The Arduberry connects to the Raspberry Pi with the standard 26 pin header. The shield has an Arduino UNO-compatible microcontroller on it, as well as standard pins for an Arduino shield.
The Arduberry requires virtually no hardware setup: slip it onto the Raspberry Pi and go. It ships ready to work. The Arduberry comes fully assembled, and you won’t need to make any changes to the hardware (no pinning, no batteries, no nothing!).
The Arduberry microcontroller can be programmed to run on it’s own and access Arduino shields. Shields that use digital communications can be accessed directly by the Raspberry Pi, while shields that use digital or analog pins can be controlled by the Arduino. The Arduino chip on the Arduberry can communicate directly with the Raspberry Pi with no extra setup required.
