Overview

Synthiam publishes open-source hardware reference designs on GitHub to make your own hardware. Save time and cost of development using our source-available reference designs to make your own products!



Here are the reference designs we have available:

EZ-B v4

A fully featured WiFi robot controller with streaming audio and video. Features 24 Digital I/O, 8 ADC, 3 I2C, and 3 UART.



Power Harness

A LiPo battery to EZ-B v4 wiring harness with fuse protection.



EZ-B Camera

Gives the EZ-B v4 and EZ-B IoTiny video capabilities.



GPS

Allows a NEO-6M GPS to be mounted at a 90 degree angle.



Ultrasonic

A 3-wire interface with on-board 5V voltage regulator.



RGB 8x8 Display

An I2C display that can create bright and colorful animations with 64 pixels.



EZ-B IoTiny

A miniature version of the EZ-B v4. Features streaming audio and video, 8 digital I/O, 2 ADC, and 1 I2C.



Neopixel Blaster

Takes commands from a single digital pin and controls 8 channels of multiple WS2812b Neopixel RGB LEDs.



Blaster Bit

A single WS2812b Neopixel RGB LED to connect to the Neopixel Blaster.



Microphone

Converts a sound signal to an analog voltage in real-time.



Temperature Sensor

Converts a temperature value into an analog voltage.



Line Sensor

Converts 3 reflective sensor analog voltages to I2C data.



Humidity Sensor

Takes both the humidity and temperature analog voltages and outputs one sensor analog voltage at a time.



Voltmeter

Reads a 0 - 17.5VDC input voltage.



Variable Voltage Supply

A variable supply that takes a 4.1 - 37VDC input voltage and outputs 1.2 - 37VDC.



Indoor Positioning System

This system locates the position of a robot in a room and moves it to the desired location. The IPS uses one regular camera and one infrared sensitive camera.



IPS Transmitter

A wide angle infrared LED that is used as a beacon for the IPS.



IMU Sensor

A accelerometer/gyroscope combo sensor that pre-processes the data then transmits it via I2C.



LIDAR

A sensor that provides SLAM data for robot navigation.



RGB Eyes

Gives any robot animated eyes with 18 RGB LEDs.



Roomba Cable

Connects an I/O Controller to a Roomba's serial communication interface (SCI) port.
