Combining a Pi and an Arduino

Wed Aug 28, 2013 10:11 pm

I am looking for articles covering a comparison of the Arduino Uno, Arduino Due and the 'Raspberry Pi to Arduino Shields Connection Bridge' from Cooking Hacks, and maybe there are some other alike boards/ideas that I do not know off?
( ... cts_id=195 ... cts_id=243 ... ridge.html)
I am interested in the gpio connection between these. But then the Arduino Uno works on 5V and the Pi on 3.3V. The Arduino Due fixes this problem, but what about the compatibility with common Arduino shields?
Compared with those two there is the board from Cooking Hacks that fits directly on the Pi, which solves the 5V-3.3V problem, but this board will not run independent like the Arduino boards?
It's hard to find something covering these 3 subjects because this Cooking Hacks board hasn't a 'brand' or 'model' name
and the Pi is not commonly combined, but since I already own a Pi I might just try to combine these and see what happens.

So maybe you know about an article or you have experience with one or more of these boards and are willing to help me out with an opinion.
Thanks already.

If you want a board that connects Arduino to Raspberry Pi I can recommend our new exBoard that is under developement. It has an Atmega2560 onboard and mountingsockets for Arduino shields and Raspberry Pi. You will get 4 RS232 ports, 1 RS485/422 Multi drop bus, 8 relay outputs and 8 digital inputs. Plus you will get some other neat features onboard.
