FEZ Spider Starter Kit
www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/item/297

FEZ Spider Starter Kit is the first commercially available .NET Gadgeteer-compatible kit. it consists of everything necessary for educators, hobbyists and even specialists. Embedded development is quick &amp easy (FEZ) thanks to .NET Micro Framework, .NET Gadgeteer and the several GHI worth added features such as WiFi and USB Host.

The kit consists of:

FEZ Spider Mainboard
Show T35 Module (3.five&quot with touchscreen)
USB Client DP Module (with USB cable)
Camera Module
2x Multicolor LED Module (DaisyLink)
2x Button Module
Ethernet J11D Module
SD Card Module
USB Host Module
Extender Module
Joystick Module
10cm IDC cables (integrated with modules).
Assorted IDC Cable Pack:
4x 5cm IDC cables
3x 20cm IDC cables
1x 50cm IDC cable
Reusable Plastic Storage Box

FEZ Spider Mainboard is a .NET Gadgeteer-compatible mainboard primarily based on GHI Electronics’ EMX module. This makes FEZ Spider Mainboard the most function-complete .NET Gadgeteer compatible device in the market. It consists of all of .NET Micro Framework core attributes and adds several exclusive functions, such as USB host, WiFi and RLP (loading native code). All these functions combine to offer a fast prototyping platform.

Essential Characteristics:

14 .NET Gadgeteer compatible sockets that contain these kinds: X, Y, A, C, D, E, F, H, I, K, O, P, S, T, U, R, G, B and Z.
Configurable on-board LED
Configuration switches.

72MHz 32-bit ARM7 processor
4.five MB Flash
16 MB RAM
LCD controller
Full TCP/IP Stack with SSL, HTTP, TCP, UDP, DHCP
Ethernet, WiFi driver and PPP ( GPRS/ 3G modems) and DPWS
USB host
USB Device with specialized libraries to emulate devices like thumb-drive, virtual COM (CDC), mouse, keyboard
76 GPIO Pin
two SPI (8/16bit)
I2C
four UART
two CAN Channels
7 ten-bit Analog Inputs
10-bit Analog Output (capable of WAV audio playback)
four-bit SD/MMC Memory card interface
six PWM
OneWire interface (obtainable on any IO)
Built-in Genuine Time Clock (RTC) with the appropriate crystal
Processor register access
OutputCompare for producing waveforms with higher accuracy
RLP enabling users to load native code (C/Assembly) for real-time needs
Extended double-precision math class
FAT File Method
Cryptography (AES and XTEA)
Low power and hibernate help
In-field update (from SD, network or other)
Dimensions: W 2.25&quot x L 2.05&quot x H .five&quot

Power

Low power and hibernate modes
Active energy consumption 160 mA
Idle energy consumption 120 mA
Hibernate power consumption 40 mA

Enviromental:

Needs .NET Gadgeteer normal red energy modules.
RoHS compliant /Lead-free of charge compliant

Most EMX computer software features are GHI exclusive, see application documentation for particulars.
