Memsic IRIS


The IRIS is a 2.4 GHz Mote used for enabling low-power wireless sensor networks. Available as a module (M2110) or board-level platform (XM2110), IRIS provides users with high-level functional integration designed to optimize the addition of wireless mesh networking technology to a wide variety of custom sensing applications providing up to three times improved radio range and twice the program memory over previous generations of MICA Motes.

MEMSIC has opted to bundle its IRIS wireless sensor motes with a new software platform invented by IBM scientists in Zurich called Mote Runner. Together with the Mote Runner software development environment, this advanced hardware and software combination offers clients a user-friendly platform for testing, debugging, and maintaining applications for MEMSIC IRIS motes running Mote Runner.

Memsic MIB520

  The MIB520CB provides USB connectivity to the MICA and IRIS Mote for communication and in-system programming. In addition to data transfer, the MIB520CB also provides a USB programming interface.


Memsic MDA100

   The MDA100CB sensor and data acquisition board has a precision thermistor, a light sensor/photocell and general prototyping area. Designed for use with the IRIS, MICAz and MICA2 Motes, the prototyping area supports connection to all 51 pins on the expansion connector, and provides an additional 42 unconnected solder points for breadboarding.

Memsic MTS300

  The MTS300CB is a flexible sensor board with a variety of sensing modalities. These modalities include Light, Temperature, Acoustic and Sounder. The MTS300CB is for use with the IRIS, MICAz and MICA2 Motes.


Arduino UNO


The Arduino Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.

The Uno differs from all preceding boards in that it does not use the FTDI USB-to-serial driver chip. Instead, it features the Atmega16U2 (Atmega8U2 up to version R2) programmed as a USB-to-serial converter.
