Hello everyone, My name is Mike and for the last few years I've been developing projects using microcontrollers, like Arduino. Having to frequently solve the trouble to run my projects from battery and also add wireless communication I've decided to built a development platform with those features already built-in! Please, take a look on my first Kickstarter project: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/340271897/whisper-node. I would like to highlight that I'm not a company trying to get free-ads here, I'm just a guys sharing my experience and effort... I believe that many of you in this forum might be interested in this product, especially for those developing Internet-of-Thigs ideas which demand run on battery for long periods. Let me know if you have any question or suggestion about this project or about running Arduino in low-power as well low-power techniques for RF communication... and I'll try to answer or share any experience. Thanks! Mike M.

Just an update on that, the product is already in production and available to the public. More details about it can be found on the following link: https://talk2.wisen.com.au/product-talk2-whisper-node-avr/ Cheers,

Hello, That was just an estimate. Units will start to ne shipped soon. Actually a few units have already been shipped to test the logistics. Cheers
Cool board, matches my home & garden Control architecture. Just ordered a 3 pack.
Thanks... We're keen to start see it in action on different projects. We maybe start some kind of "post your project" on our Blog when we have enough boards out there and give the opportunity for people to share practical ideas. In exchange we probably will give back some kind of reward for the most popular ones. Cheers, Mike M.
Hello, Just a quick update on this post. Good part of the documentation for the Whisper Node is already available at: https://bitbucket.org/talk2/whisper-node-avr Also, the Talk2 Boot Load source code can be accessed here: https://bitbucket.org/talk2/talk2boot The bootload is a modified version of Optiboot with additional support for self-programming from external SPI Flash. Cheers, Mike M.
Looks like the Moteino Project.
Found this article using the same board, quite interesting: https://www.hackster.io/Talk2/temp-and-humidity-sensor-with-a-cr2032-for-over-1-year-580114
Hi All, Just to let you know that we've created a LoRa version for the Whisper Node: https://wisen.com.au/store/products/whisper-node-lora/. The board still have the low-power features from the original Whisper Node but now using the RFM95 module. Also the power supply circuit has been updated with built-in voltage detector and it's capable of automatically switch between the step-up and LDO based on the input voltage.
