Product Details

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.

CW01 – Wi-Fi Core (ESP8266/ESP-12F)

This xChip is a core Wi-Fi module, based on the ESP8266 produced by Espressif Systems. This module is equipped with Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi module offers internet connectivity which allow the user to push data to the cloud that enables remote data access and opens up the world of IoT.

The ESP8266 is more than just a Wi-Fi module. It also has a rocessor onboard, so it can function in complete autonomy. This means that the ESP8266 can be run as a serial device from another microcontroller but it can also be used as a stand-alone device. It also has 16 input/output pins, 64 KB of instruction RAM and 96 KB of data RAM.

The ESP8266 module can be easily integrated into space-constrained devices, due to its small size and it can operate in a low-power connectivity mode. The module also integrates an SPI flash of 4 Mbits used for storing user programs, data and firmware.
