Every aspect of the Arduino range is designed to make learning code and designing projects, simple, easy and great fun. A versatile, open-source development board with headers, the Arduino Leonardo is based on the ATmega328P microcontroller, and features 20 x digital I/O pins (7 can be used as PWM outputs), 12 x Analogue inputs and a 16MHz crystal oscillator.
When connecting an Arduino to a computer, it normally connects as a generic serial interface device which if you've had much experience with Arduino before, you will know just allows for basic ASCII to be sent to and from the PC. This is very useful for basic applications like debugging or data logging, but what do you do if you want to make something like a controller? Well you make a HID of course This will only work on certain Arduinos, the Leonardo, Micro, Zero and Due (or any 32U4 based board). This is because they have a USB module built in whereas something like the Uno or the Mega does not. If you don't know what a HID (Human Interface Device) is, then you will be pleased to know you probably used one to get to this page. A computer mouse, a keyboard and an Xbox remote are all HIDs and you can emulate them using an Arduino as a HID.
The RockBLOCK 9603 allows you to send and receive short messages from anywhere on Earth with a clear view of the sky. It works far beyond the reach of WiFi and GSM networks. Maybe you want to transmit weather information from mid-ocean? Or use it to control your robot in the middle of the desert? Perhaps you need to communicate in an emergency, when other networks might not be available? RockBLOCK can help you. The RockBlock 9603 comes with an on-board patch antenna and an SMA connector for an external antenna. (external antenna not included)
This project will show you how to integrate a Raspberry Pi Pico and RockBLOCK. When you’re in the middle of nowhere, halfway up Everest or ploughing a field and you need to communicate, then satellite is probably the only viable option. The RockBLOCK 9603 from Rock 7 allows any device with a serial interface to send and receive messages using an Iridium SBD (Short Burst Date) satellite link. Learn how to connect the RockBLOCK module to the Raspberry Pi Pico microcontroller using its serial uart along with a Grove GPS module which obtains accurate global positioning coordinates, which are sent over the satellite link. The software that runs on the Pico was developed on a Raspberry Pi400 host in C/C++ using VSCode and the source is open and available on the OKdo github.
