If you want to develop your own wireless sensors or add some wireless control your projects then this is the perfect platform for the job.
The Arduino is a microcontroller board that has been a huge success for open hardware. Building on that success is the RFu-328 which is an Arduino UNO coupled with a radio transmitter. Cramming all that in to a postage stamp size footprint (2.53mm x 22mm x 27.70mm) makes this the worlds smallest most affordable, RF capable, Arduino IDE programmable device. What’s more you can program this device over the air (no need for a USB cable). This board is perfect for compact projects where you need reliable and easy RF with all the flexibility of Arduino.
Building and developing your own RF module is a complex undertaking. Using the RFu-328 removes the complexity of RF communications. The RFu-328 communications is as easy as sending a text message from one device to the other. The RFu-328 can broadcast text messages that are encrypted and secure and can receive messages from other RFu-328 sensors or other RF modules connected to a PC or a Raspberry Pi (for example).
If you are already familiar with the Arduino development environment, then you will be right at home with programming the RFu-328. If not then we have a series of tutorials that will get you started in no time. Even if you have no programming experience this is a good starting point to learn about programming and embedded electronics.The RFu-328 will bring RF capabilities to your Arduino projects. If you already have Arduino sketches (code) developed then migrating them to the RFu-328 will be very easy because it uses the same development environment – Arduino IDE – and has almost all Arduino pins available for use.
