I was just surfing internet for RP2040 Based IoT Board and found an amazing board IoTPi, which is powered by Raspberry Pi's RP2040 microcontroller onboard and available in 4 channel relay & 6 Channel relays.
We seen several IoT project many of are familiar with IoT if you're not the let me tell you what's IoT "The Internet of Things describes physical object with sensor, processing ability, software, and other technologoes that connect and exchange data with other devices and systems over the internetor other communication network "
IoTPi launched on Kickstarter by Ashish who previously lauched StackyPi another RP2040 based board in PiZero form factor, which support all Raspberry Pi HATs, due to short supply of Raspberry Pi's people loved StackyPi which made StackyPi Successfully funded. Now Ashish came up with this RP2040 based IoT board which is first RP2040 based IoT Board.
IoTPi is an amazing board comes with a great combination of RP2040 MCU & ESP8266 which make IoTPi stand out.
- Onboard AC to DC converter so that you can directly connect 220V and it'll convert it to 5V.
- It Also has a 2 Pin screw termincal for 5V power supply.
- RS485 Communication Protocol "RS-485 is a duplex communication system in which multiple devices on the same bus can communicate in both directions. RS-485 is most often used as half-duplex, as shown in the figures above, with only a single communication line ('A' and 'B' as a pair)"
- Isolated Power Supply
- Reset & Boot Button
- Additional GPIO Pins for connecting sensors or IO and more.
- LEDs Relay Indicator
Currently IoTPi is availble on Kicksatrter you can buy IoTPi at £30 after kickstarter It'll be £47.
