Discontinued Arduino Fio - Main Board

Arduino Fio - Main Board

  • Brand: Sparkfun
  • Product Code: ARDUINO-FIO
  • Availability:
    Discontinued
  • Warranty Period: 12 months
This is another famous arduino main board series, the Arduino Funnel I/O (Fio). Modified version of Funnel which is designed by Shigeru Kobayashi based on original design from sewable LilyPad.

Arduino Fio is compatible with Funnel. It has connections for a Lithium Polymer battery (single cell, 3.7V) and includes a charge circuit over USB. Or, if you don have single cell Li-Po we recommend using power over USB first :). It also comes with an XBee socket on the bottom of the board. The Fio has been designed to be wirelessly reprogrammable using XBee module series 1. Checkout the tutorial on Fio Programming and wireless bootloading! Or if you don't have a pair of XBee, use the UC00A to load program, we are coming out with the tutorial soon.

Note: The miniUSB connector is used for battery charging only. To bootload new firmware, you will need an external serial connection over an FTDI Basic, cable, or other serial connection.

Note: The XBee socket and FTDI connection live on the same TX/RX pins of the ATmega328. You will need to remove the XBee module while reprogramming over serial. We recommend using a wireless bootloader whenever possible to avoid this step.

Note: This is original Fio board, a portion of this sale is given back to Arduino.cc to help fund continued development of new tools and new IDE features.

Features:
  • ATmega328V running at 8MHz
  • Arduino Bootloader
  • XBee socket
  • Lithium Polymer battery compatible
  • Running at 3.3V
  • MCP73831T LiPo Charger
  • Reset button

I am doing a project about power failure notification project. i am using nokia hand phone act as gsm modem to send the SMS to the other hand phone by using f bus command to be load in the pic16877a. I can't load the programming into the pic because the programming is an arduino based program. Can i used arduino product to connect the handphone and the pic?If yes, which product should i used? Thank you. ( ika, 31/08/2016 )

Hi,

If you have further question, you can ask at our technical forum, as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks. smiley?

Hi. I have a few question regarding this board functionality and features. 1) Can this board recharge the LiPo battery through the USB port of the board? I noticed that there are charge circuit over USB and I'm wondering if it can recharge the LiPo battery (I planned to use the rechargeable LiPo battery) when the board connected to the USB port of the computer..etc. 2) Are the LiPo battery come with the board when purchased? Hope can get your feedback asap. Thank you. ( din, 17/10/2015 )

Hi, these are the answers to your questions:

1) Yes, Arduino Fio is compatible with Funnel. It has connections for a Lithium Polymer (Li-Po) battery (single cell, 3.7V) and includes a charge circuit over USB. Please do note that he miniUSB connector is used for battery charging only. To bootload new firmware, you will need an external serial connection over an FTDI Basic, cable, or other serial connection.
