Create a Strata Weather Station node and more with Microchip Atmega32U4

August 7, 2017 | Karen Schultz

Last week we announced LoRa, today, we are announcing a new Geppetto microcontroller with the Microchip Atmega32U4.

It is the workhorse behind the Arduino Leonardo and Micro. A low-power Microchip 8-bit AVR RISC-based microcontroller featuring 32KB self-programming flash memory, 2.5KB SRAM, 1KB EEPROM, USB 2.0 full-speed/low speed device, 12-channel 10-bit A/D-converter, and JTAG interface for on-chip-debug.

In Geppetto, this new module can be found in the ‘Processors’ shelf.

With this addition, you can now create a custom node with it as your microcontroller. We tested it out in Geppetto by designing a new board with Atmega and LoRa Transceiver node module: the Strata Weather Station.
