Description

In our opinion, the only thing the Raspberry Pi 3 and Pi 2 are truly lacking is an I2C port. (Of course you may have guessed by looking at our product offerings, we are admittedly a little biased. No worries.) The XPI is a non-invasive I2C adapter complete with level shifter providing you with a 5V I2C port for use with ANY of our I2C devices. The I2C port points outward toward the outside edge of the board, and terminates directly above the HDMI port. The XPI does not consume the 40-pin expansion port, as it is equipped with a pass-through connector, freeing the 40-pin connector for other purposes, making it a truly non-invasive design.

Add communications to your Raspberry Pi 2 & 3, greatly expanding communication options. Expand your Raspberry Pi to include industrial wireless options from Digi.com, such as ZigBee, 802.15.4, or our favorite Industrial wireless: S3B. The XPI is also compatible with other communication modules, such as USB, RS-232, Bluetooth, WiFi, and Ethernet. The XPI overlay shield allows connection to a wide variety of communication modules to your Raspberry Pi 2 & 3.

NOTE: The XPI adapter provides a power solution as well as TX and RX data connections to the Raspberry Pi 2 & 3. No other communications pins are mapped to the Raspberry Pi 2 & 3.

Compatibility

This adapter provides a general-purpose I2C port, compatible with our complete line of I2C devices. Control relays, monitor current, and read just about any kind of sensor you can imagine. This adapter should be used with Raspberry Pi 2 & 3 only.

NCD manufactures and stocks many Communication Modules making it easy to adapt our products to just about any application.  For the most part, all modules we manufacture are interchangeable.  NCD devices that support a communications module interface socket are generally compatible with communication modules manufactured by other companies as well.  We have chosen Digi XBeeⓇ and XBee ProⓇ series controllers as our favorite wireless option communication modules for industrial applications.  USB and RS-232 communication modules remain a favorite for applications that require wire access.  The Lantronix XPort module supports TCP/IP, making it easy to add Ethernet to your next project.

Customize

We Customize Just for You!!

NCD offers many custom IoT electronic design services to help tailor our product to your exact needs.  Whether you are looking for custom firmware, circuit board modifications, metal enclosures, or industrial color printing, we can help you with a wide variety of design services.

Custom IoT Electronic Design Services Process

Most of our users purchase off-the-shelf hardware for initial testing.  Once everything is working, they contact us to build a custom solution which may include specialized changes to the board, firmware, connectors, etc.  Custom boards have many advantages such as reduced wiring, easy installation, small size, less power consumption, and in some cases, an overall reduction in product cost.  Custom IoT Electronic Design Services will have your company name and logo on the board as well as the enclosure.

Customized IoT Electronics

NCD engineers can help build a customized solution for your particular application based on the designs you see on our website.  We can combine devices onto a single board, change the shape, or even some of the components to meet your exact needs.  We also provide turn-key metal enclosures with powder coating and full-color printing on the top side starting at just $500 for setup!  We have more than 20 years of experience in electronics design and manufacturing.  All of our products are designed and manufactured in the USA, so we are here to support the products we make.  We only ask that our customers prototype their needs using our existing products before we customize.

Customization Guidelines

  • Custom designs should be based on our existing product because we can’t build rockets or electric cars over here!
  • We do not provide customization services if it involves the introduction of a new or untested technology.
  • Custom engineering fees depend on your requirements, so please contact us for a quote!
  • We maintain ownership of all designs, including our customized designs as they are based on our existing Design.
  • We will only ship the customized product to you or your authorized agents.
  • We have an NDA available if needed.
  • The turn-around time is about 2-3 weeks.
  • We specialize in low-volume designs, no quantity is too small!
  • We have the ability to scale to large volumes as needed.

Getting Started with Product Customization

All you have to do is contact us and we will walk you through the process from beginning to end, based on your individual needs.  Some people are surprised at how fast we finish CAD design (usually a few hours), but keep in mind, we still have to build your design, which takes considerably more time.  When we customize product, here are the general services we provide:

  • We design the circuit board.
  • We communicate with our customers throughout the customization and manufacturing process.
  • We manufacture surface mount stencils and circuit boards.
  • We program our pick and place machines to build your boards.
  • We build a working sample and run it through our wave solder machine.
  • We test your custom IoT solution.
  • Once the design is finalized it won’t be possible to make changes during production (changes cost money and require us to repeat the above processes)
  • Once it meets all your requirements, we will start production as needed.
  • We work with our metal fabricators to design a metal enclosure if required.
  • You work with our artist to print the top side of the enclosure in full color with your company logo if required.
