ArduinoExperts: Arduino Developers + Arduino Jobs. Open Accessory Development Kit. The Accessory Development Kit (ADK) is a reference implementation for hardware manufacturers and hobbyists to use as a starting point for building accessories for Android.

Open Accessory Development Kit

Each ADK release is provided with source code and hardware specifications to make the process of developing your own accessories easier. Creating new and alternative hardware based on the ADK is encouraged! Android accessories can be audio docking stations, exercise machines, personal medical testing devices, weather stations, or any other external hardware device that adds to the functionality of Android. Accessories use the Android Open Accessory (AOA) protocol to communicate with Android devices, over a USB cable or through a Bluetooth connection. If you are building an accessory that uses USB, make sure you understand how to implement the AOA protocol to establish communication between your accessory hardware and Android.

arduino - Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software.

It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. This Google Code project is the home for the development of the Arduino platform. For more information on using Arduino, see the Arduino homepage. The Arduino software consists of a development environment (IDE) and the core libraries. The IDE is written in Java and based on the Processing development environment.

Davide Gomba — July 18th, 2011 Some time ago the guys at Fablab Italia in Turin joined a city exhibition of art, design and related. The exhibition is hosted in Vanchiglia, a neighborhood of Turin, and it’s called Vanchiglia Open Lab (LOV). The project they managed to bring to the Open Lab is really interesting: a digital lathe which lets you interact physically with a 3D program and print your own sketch with the 3D printer. Minibloq.

Labs - Index browse. Got a Mega ADK in your hands and can’t wait to use it? Not interested in the project’s history? Visit the step by step tutorial and start playing with your Arduino board, Processing, and your Android device. This page gives background on Android’s Accessory Development Kit and the Arduino Mega ADK, which was designed to work with Android.

If you’re not familiar with the Android ADK and what development tools are available, read on. Description The Arduino ADK is a combination of hardware and software designed to help people interested in designing accessories for Android devices. During Google’s 2011 IO keynote [1] , Google introduced a board [2] based on the Arduino Mega 2560 which includes this USB host. About the Mega ADK board The Mega ADK board is a derivative of the Arduino Mega 2560. BOSSA is a flash programming utility for Atmel's SAM family of flash-based ARM microcontrollers. The motivation behind BOSSA is to create a simple, easy-to-use, open source utility to replace Atmel's SAM-BA software. BOSSA is an acronym for asic pen ource AM-BA pplication to reflect that goal. What's wrong with using SAM-BA? Well, there are several reasons to consider an alternative.

The first reason is complexity. The second reason is expandability. The third reason is reliability.
