The cloudBit is the easiest way to create internet-connected devices. You can now snap the internet to anything Retrofit your thermostat to control it remotely, or set up a sound-triggered alarm system that texts you alerts – the possibilities are endless. No programming, soldering or wiring required. The USB power may be the smallest in the series, but its big enough to send juice to all your creations. Connect a USB cable included to your computer or phone charger to start the power flowing. Try it with an LED to make the simplest littleBits circuit. If youre looking for a permanent installation, the USB power adapter enables you to plug your USB power directly into the wall. The power adapter and USB cable combo is the perfect way to power permanent creations You can extend your inventions with the 1.5 meter long USB to micro-USB cable.UNDER THE HOODFor the cloudBit we built an embedded Linux system based around a Freescale i.MX23 ARM926EJ-S processor. It has 64MB of RAM and boots a heavily modified version of the ArchLinux distribution from a 4GB SD card. The cloudBit uses an 802.11b/g/n USB adapter for networking, the Freescales on-chip ADC and DAC for the input and output pins, and the GPIO pins for the setup button and the status LED. Weve left pads on the bottom of the board so that you can connect to the cloudBits serial console using 3.3V UART 8-N-1, 115,200 baud and poke around.The cloudbit currently supports networks with the following security standards Open no encryption, WEP, WPA and WPA2.
