Thank you to everybody who bought DIPduinos from the first batch. Let’s make some beautiful projects together. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. I will be happy to help!
And don’t forget to share your project!

I have an idea to sell small quantity of DIPDuino’s to interested hobbyists. So, the question is - what will be the reasonable price for DIPDunio? Yes, it is quite expensive to make because of 4-layers PCB and components on both sides, howeverone DIPDuino is capable to replace and Arduino equipped with some of very popular shields, all without need for stacking boards one of top of another. In fact DIPDuino is amazingly compact package.
So, lets calculate:
- Here is Arduino Mini Pro which is more or less comparable to DIPDuino. The price of Arduino Mini Pro is $33.95
- DIPDuino also hase ZigBee communication capabilities similar to one provided by Microchip Technology - MRF24J40MCT-I/RM. You can buy it it Mouser for only $19.44.
- Next is OLED display from Adafruit (I am a big fan of Adafruit). They sell it for a reasonable $17.50 .
- And of course SD Card module, also from Adafruit for only $7.50
Your total budget for DIPDuino-like system will be $78.39. This does not include DIPDuino’s SRAM chip and you will probably use some pins of your Arduino Mini Pro to interface with modules listed above.
In my opinion the reasonable price of DIPduino should be around $70. What do you think? Your feedback is highly appreciated and will help me to develop the project in the right direction
Here is an example of Temerature and Humidity data logger implemented with DIPDuino.
It took me only about 20 minutes to assemble the board and write the code with in Atmel Studio. Next I want to implement ZigBee data transmission to another DIPDuino.
