alpha:ONE

alpha:ONE is a high quality industrial multipurpose 32bit microcontroller board, which supports MicroPython programming.
The comprehensive suite of STM32 development tools is also supported for traditional C/C++ programming.

Board overview

_images/alphaone_overview.png
alpha:ONE combines high quality industrial hardware with the ease and speed of programming of MicroPython.
This allows engineers to implement prototypes and products in a fraction of the time required for traditional C/C++ based development.
The board has a wide-range supply input of 6V to 36V. (contact systematica for higher voltages)
Twelve 12/24V high-speed isolated digital inputs
Six 12/24V high power outputs with up to 32A capability.
The most relevant industrial communication interfaces are also provided, such as Ethernet, Can Bus, RS232, RS422 and RS485.
A microSD card slot adds the possibility to store large amounts of data, such as for long-term logging.
A battery-backed real time clock keeps track of the datetime also after power cycles.
The board can also be supplied directly through the Micro-USB connector for ease of use while developing.
Firmware updates are possible.

alpha:ONE is suitable for a variety of industrial and research applications, such as:

  • Programmable Logic Controller

  • Rapid prototyping

  • Control systems for test setups

  • Data logging

  • Signal/subsystem simulators
