Event description

Description

Join Mouse and Matt to build this WiFi connected development board!

This will be a mixture of soldering the kit together (basic, through-hole soldering), fit it all into the enclosure and upload some basic code. We provide all the parts to build this kit.

This development board is called the 'CheeseBoard: Cheddar" and we hope that it will be useful for displaying basic information from a website or to upload data or information to a website.

The CheeseBoard is based upon the ESP8266 wifi system on a chip (the NodeMCU Amica devleopment board) . It has been designed to try out your ideas quickly and easily. It is also a learning platform for developing ideas on the ESP8266/NodeMCU.

We are providing some basic programs to get you started.

The board contains:

  • ESP8266 Amica NodeMCU unit
  • 124 x 64 pixel OLED display
  • Rotary encoder with push-switch
  • 5 x WS2812 RGB LEDs

There as also breakout pads for connecting serial data and also a socket for an HC-12 wireless serial module (sorry, HC-12 is not supplied).

This project is fully open-source and the PCB design files are available here:

This board is a new kit from The Curious Electric Company. We are running this at a reduced price in order to get feedback on the instructions and board functions.

If you can, please bring along a laptop with the latest Arduino IDE (version 1.8) already installed - this will mean you can get up and running quickly!
