MVFD Serial Backpack

MVFD Serial Backpack

MVFD Serial Backpack is a pluggable adapter for MVFD 16S8D Panel which allows communication with a host controller by either I2C or SPI interfaces. This significantly reduces the amount of required GPIOs on host controller and offloads it to a certain degree as PWM control for RGB LED, sound generation, high level logic for VFD display and IR decoding are taking place in this adapter.

Gps Gsm Module

GSM/GPS module is a compact, flexible and powerful solution allowing to add GPS functionality and/or Internet connectivity to your own device with minimum effort. The module is designed as one of a few interchangeable transport connectors for DefendLineII project but could be easily mated with any microprocessor based device via serial interface and couple of extra GPIOs (two serial interfaces are needed in case of simultaneous usage of GSM and GPS chips). Depending on the required functionality only those components should be soldered that shall be used to provide that functionality which simplifies assembling process, makes the module cheaper yet still potentially capable of more – you can just add extra components later if you really need.

DefendLine Kit

DefendLine Kit is a fully assembled and ready for use PCB, the device can be considered as an inexpensive GSM alarm with potential of sending pictures of a guarded site (the latter option is available for certain mobile phones only). The board works in tandem with a mobile phone or a GSM modem. Apart from GSM guarding function this kit might be used for automation of many different tasks or to serve as a module for more complex systems. For more information please refer to the project’s description: DefendLine project

PLEASE NOTE: The firmware contains user specific settings such as master phone number(s) for sending alerts to and for controlling the device remotely, sensor descriptions, mobile phone commands to interact with its embedded camera etc so you will need an AVR ISP programmer (for instance, USBTinyISP) in order to flash your device. Alternatively, you can provide us with your setting and we can flash it before shipment. In any case the controller is flashed with default settings and tested to make sure it works.

Kit includes:

  • 1 x fully assembled and tested PCB;
  • 1 x power jack;
  • 1 x modem connector;
  • 1 x alarm sensors connector;
  • 1 x CD with firmware source code and documentation;
