Communicating with a temperature sensor, an EEPROM, a graphic screen or an 32x8 LED matrix using the SPI or I2C protocol is similar to using an API over TCP socket.


Nusbio uses plug and play extensions ready for programming. You can start with a minimum knowledge in electricity and no need to solder.


To start Nusbio offers :

  • 8 digital Input/Output pins (or GPIO) with support of the SPI and I2C protocols
  • 8 analog to digital pins (ADC, as extension)
  • Programmable in any .NET language

How to get started? Store

LED matrix

Learn about shift register, the MAX7219 chip, multiplexing and the SPI protocol.
It's not that hard, if you know how to write code you can do it. You can control from 1 to 4 8x8 LED matrix chained together.

Graphic screen

This is a 128 x 64 pixel, black & white, 0.96 inch graphic screen (AKA OLED).
Programmable using the SPI protocol. Our open source sample library support 2 chips: the SH1106 and SSD1306. Implementing new driver for other graphic screen is good exercice in term of datasheet reading, bit transfer optimization. It is doable.
