panStick is a special USB-UART gateway designed for panStamp 2. It provides the necessary footprint to include a panStamp (NRG or AVR) and can also be used without a wireless module, by stacking or plugging under or onto other carrier boards. This gateway can be used as either a serial programmer and as a serial modem for wireless networks.

This version can program either panStamps AVR 2 and NRG 2. By setting the on-board selector to the suitable position, you will be able to put the panStick into one of these modes:

  • Left position (PR label): program and run applications on panStamp NRG 2. This position won't work when using the module serially from a serial terminal or as a modem, due to the special use of the RESET line (without a series capacitor).
  • Right position: program and run applications on AVR modules. This position can also be used to run NRG applications including serial applications (USB).

 

Pinout and ports

panStick 4 has the same pinout as the rest of mini-carrier boards. This means that panStick can be stacked under (or onto) other carrier boards, as far as only one of the carrier boards has a panStamp module assembled.

panStick as a serial modem

Apart from using panStick to program panStamps, it can be used as a serial interface to communicate with wireless networks from a serial terminal SWAPdmt, lagarto-swap, fhem or your custom software. In order to do this, you have to program your on-board panStamp with our "modem" sample application and place the manual switch on the right position (opposite to "PR"). You can read about our serial protocol and AT commands here.
