ELLO 2M is a a PIC32-powered portable computer for hobby and education. It is built entirely from PCBs (no other casing!).

ELLO 2M specifications

  • 32-bit PIC32 micro-controller with 128kB RAM (512kB RAM in the ELLO 2M² “hacker” version)
  • 7-inch LCD touch-screen panel with 800x480 pixel resolution
  • 3x micro-SD cards – one permanently built-in and two for removable storage
  • Real-time clock
  • 2.4GHz RF communication module with simple communication protocol
  • Small speaker
  • Optional on-board serial non-volatile data RAM
  • Expansion receptacle
  • Electronic prototyping space with up to 1156 holes
  • 4500mAh battery for up to 12 hours of continuous operation (more in power-saving mode)
  • Replaceable keyboard panels
  • Composite construction from PCB panels only

ELLO Features

  • ELLO is Thin - 6.4mm total without sockets, consisting of 6 stacked PCBs.
  • Prototyping space - available on ELLO Geek and above, so you can create and test your projects using ELLO.
  • Real-time clock and buzzer
  • Ample storage - 3 Micro-SD card slots and an internal serial FRAM for data and code storage.
  • Built in RF module - which essentially emulates a wireless UART connection and also has an internal stack with ability for simple networking with similar devices. The range (by specs) is about 100 metres.
  • keyboard - 2 layered keyboard to create pushable buttons, complete with optional backlighting and indicator LED.

With ELLO you can

  • Learn how to program in BASIC and C; more programming languages will follow soon
  • Have an open field to create programs for everything; ELLO is new and your programs will be needed
  • Prototype electronic circuits and control them directly from your programs
  • Develop own expansion boards
  • Write your own games
  • Play alone or connected with friends
You can’t perform that action at this time.
