Here’s an updated tutorial for using an Alamode with the Raspberry Pi from Drew Fustini at Element14:
I finally got a got a chance a couple weeks ago to experiment with my Alamode from Wyolum. It’s an Arduino-compatible board with an ATMega328 that sits on top of the Raspberry Pi. It has has headers for Arduino shields and also features a real-time clock and microSD card reader:
The setup for the Alamode on the Pi is pretty simple when following Wyolum’s Getting started guide. Essentially, you’ll need to install the Arduino package via apt and then download and run the Alamode setup script. The setup script disables the system console on the Pi’s serial port in /etc/inittab. The Pi’s serial port is instead used to upload sketches onto the Alamode’s ATMega328 and also used for communication (such as with the Arduino IDE’s serial monitor)….
