What & where to buy

Chips, modules

NUT-01-AK, Nutchip in 20-pin dual-in-line plastic case. Works with radio and Visa Simplex remote controls.
This is the chp used for all our projects, except those from Robot DeAgostini™ section.

NUT-01-DEA, a specialized Nutchip for interfacing to the De Agostini™ Robot.
Work with the infrared remote control that comes with the book "Costruisci e programma il tuo Robot" (Build and program your own Robot) and with radio remote controls.
This is the chip used for the Robot De Agostini section, works also for all other projects usign the De Agostini remote control. Works also with a Visa Simplex™ configured as "Sony™" mode.
PICRMT, PIC microcontroller already programmed with "picrmt.hex". It's a remote encoder generator, works with both and infrared circuitry, suitable for the NUT01-AK
Experiment board BOENUT-01. Includes a breadboard, professional reset circuit, ceramic resonator, oscillatore ceramico, Nutchip (NUT01-AK), 4 LEDs, 4 pushbuttons, PC interface and sockets for infrared or radio remote control receivers. All you need to start programming and experimenting with Nutchips - assembled and tested. No soldering required. Can be used as Nutchip programmer.
Options: rubber 433 MHz aerial + RF receiver + RF remote control, or infrared receiver + infrared remote control.
Reset generator IC type Motorola MC34064
3-pin ceramic resonator, 4 MHz oscillating frequency
Integrated infrared receiver module, type TK1836 or equivalent. Carrier frequency 36 kHz. Suitable for receiving signals from Visa Simplex remote control.

433 MHz radio receiver module (Aurel), suitable for receiving AM signals from the 4-keys Aurel remote control and for building wireless sensors.

(!) Always check local regulation to know if use of the above frequency is allowed in your Country.
