What is c-trino?
c-trino is a brand of expansions for Arduino®, compatible with any other I2C capable device (like Raspberry-Pi). Created by the two Electrical and Computer Engineering students, at Instituto Superior Técnico - Lisbon, Rodrigo Capeleiro and Pedro Roque, in collaboration with Designer Pedro Gomes, we are a multidisciplinary team that aims to deliver unique and innovative products!
c-trino started out as an idea to build a new Arduino®-like board together with Hackerschool. We soon realised that our goal was not to reinvent the wheel. So, we decided to deliver something new, different and better!
The dream evolved and C-Trino came to life.
The brand product consists of a series of boards that go from analog expansion, to I/O expansion, PWM and range extenders.
Our main goal is to provide virtually all the I/O pins you may ever need, which can be anywhere up to a certain radius, and let you treat as if they were actually inside the Arduino board!
Let two words define c-trino: simplicity and versatility.
Well, it´s not hard to think in applications for this, is it? We can apply c-trino to everything that goes from home-automation, to car parking assistance, surveillance... In the end, you can use it almost in any DIY Project! Juicy, uh?
So, what I Buy is What I Get?
Short answer: No. You get even more! All source code of every board, alongside with its schematics, will be open source so you can adapt it to your own projects or reconfigure its purpose. Community is Upper-case in our goals!
