Tibbo Project PCBs (TPPs)
|Top Previous Next|
Tibbo Project PCBs are motherboards that accommodate Tibbits. Each board carries a CPU, an Ethernet port, memory, status LEDs, and a buzzer.
Each TPP offers a number of standard tiles with installation sockets for Tibbits. Plug in desired Tibbits, put the assembly into an optional Tibbo Project Box, and you've got yourself a cost-effective, highly customized automation device that carries no unwanted excess.
To achieve economical basic unit price, TPPs keep the onboard circuitry to the necessary minimum. For example, there is no built-in power supply -- the boards directly accept only regulated +5V power. Real-world power processing (from 12V, PoE, etc.) is achieved by adding power supply Tibbits. This "no excess" approach is the cornerstone of the Tibbo Project System.
TiOS-based TPPs are available in gen. 1 (original) and gen. 2 (fast) versions. Gen. 2 boards are 6-70 times faster than their original counterparts.
