ZigUNO – An Arduino UNO-sized Zigbee board that works with PTVO firmware

ZigUNO Zigbee development board comes with an Ebyte E18-MS1 module equipped with Texas Instruments SimpleLink CC2530 8051 Zigbee microcontroller and follows Arduino UNO form for Arduino Shield compatibility.

The board works with PTVO Zigbee firmware that comes with a graphical configuration tool to select the Zigbee chip used (CC2530), configure I/O behavior (input/output, pull-up, etc…), and more. The developers also suggest using DIYRuZ projects as examples to get started.

ZigUNO board specifications:

  • Zigbee module – Ebyte E18-MS1-PCB module with TI SimpleLink CC2530 8051 microcontroller with Zigbee 3.0 (and IEEE 802.15.4) connectivity, 256kB Flash and 8kB RAM, PCB antenna
  • Expansion – Arduino UNO headers (3.3V only, not 5V tolerant)
  • Power Supply – 5V up to 1.5A via 5.5/2.1mm DC jack, 2-pin terminal block, or micro USB port
  • Dimensions – 82x54x13 (Arduino UNO form factor)
  • Temperature Range – 0 to 50°C

You’ll find the hardware design files including EasyEDA PDF schematics, BoM, and Gerber files on Github, all released under a GPL 3.0 license. The board is sold for $15 on Tindie but is currently out of stock. Note that the board is designed by mind.in.ua, a Ukrainian company based in Odessa, and I suppose it would ship from there if there is stock.
