3Bpi - Three Branch Pi

set05_08 aka 3Bpi translates bidirectionally inputs/outputs of the Raspberry Pi's GPIO from 3.3V to 5V TTL levels. It has three external ports to connect electronics.cat open source hardware boards. This board takes advantage of P5's Raspberry Pi, with access to a second I2C channel (I2C_0, it can be used without camera connected) and CTS and RTS for hardware flow control in serial communications. Two of 3Bpi's ports, P3 and P4, can be used as 8 bit input/output or I2C and/or SPI ports. One port, P2, is thought for serial communications and Raspberry Pi can be set as master or slave setting the jumpers properly.

Relays Board

set05_02 is a 4 relays board to be connected to 3Bpi. It can be expanded to another 4 relays board or an input board

Input Board

set05_02 is a 4 inputs board to be connected to 3Bpi. It can be expanded to another 4 inputs board or a 4 relays board

LEDs + microswitch

set01_04 is a universal 8 bit inputs (microswitch) / outputs (LEDs) to be connected to 3Bpi. Each bit is set as input or output through jumpers position.

Digital Input / Output I2C expander

set03_03 expands 16 inputs/outputs using TWI (I2C) to be connected to 3Bpi. Each board has two PCF8574. The lower bit is forced to a low level hardware (chip 1 A0 = 0 and chip 2 A0 = 1). Addresses A1 and A2 are set through SMD microswitch (SW1). The jumpers can notify if there is any change when reading, avoiding a constant reading of I2C bus. P1 and P2 connectors are designed to be connected in daisy chain up to four set03_03 boards (64 inputs / outputs).

RS232 to TTL converter

set01_03 translates RS232 signals to TTL to be connected to P2's 3Bpi serial communication port.

USB - RS232 TTL / I2C translator

set01_05 has three functions : 1st) translating USB to TTL Tx and Rx to be connected to 3Bpi, 2nd) converting USB to I2C and 3rd) supplying voltage to next board (it is not for 3Bpi) if jumper is between positions 1 and 2.

uC Atmega

set01_01 is a microcontroller board with two 8-bit ports of inputs/outputs and one serial communication port. It is useful when it is needed to implement some real time application. It can be connected to 3Bpi using any port. Usually through serial communication port.

RemotePi Board

The RemotePi Board is an intelligent infrared remote controlled power switch add-on board for the Raspberry Pi. It allows to switch power on and off using any button (configurable in learning mode) of an existing standard IR remote. Power is only cut after notifying the OS and giving it time to shut-down. It is mainly intended to remote control (using LIRC) and power off/on a mediacenter system. i.e OpenELEC, Raspbmc, XBian.
