xChip Boards

xChips are a rapid electronics development ecosystem to help reduce development time and simplify making custom products as well as aiding learning. Without soldering, wiring, breadboarding, or hardware knowledge you can assemble a circuit in minutes, and concentrate on coding.

xChips are compatible with the platform you want to use and bridges are available for the most popular pltatforms; Raspberry Pi, Minnowboard, Beaglebone, Micro:bit, Pixhawk and 96 boards. Rather than bridging to Ardunio, we offer compatible cores for Arduino Uno, the CC01, and for Arduino Zero, the CC03.

xChips utilise I2C, and due to this bus architecture, unlimited expansion of circuits is possible. Limitations of I2C addresses have been negated by development multiplexers.

Because of its simple connection method, it is easy to build quickly - for prototyping and small product runs

xChips connect to each other using an xBus connector, available from RS 174-4977.

Some xChips need an xPDI connector (RS 174-4974) to connect to programming interfaces, such as the IP02 or IP03.

IP02 – Advanced USB Programming Interface (FT232R)

This xChip is an interface programmer module, based on the FT232R by FTDI Limited. The FT232R offers USB to Asynchronous Serial Data (UART) interface, allowing the module to communicate with a personal computer, in a very simple way. This is also equipped to power and program other modules via a USB A connector.

The IP02 is required for programming specific core xChips over the USB serial bridge provided by the FT232R, but it can also program the same xChips covered by the IP01.

The IP02 can also provide power to the circuit and, additionally can be used to debug/communicate using the serial port, during development.
