FIGnition is supplied as a kit of parts comprising a small, bare PCB and a set of components including an 8-bit 20MHz ATmega328 microcontroller, a 512Kbyte Flash memory chip and an 8Kbyte RAM device.
Designed for construction by beginners, FIGnition comes pre-loaded with the Forth programming language, providing a simple, efficient environment in which to interactively learn and run computer code. Power is supplied via a USB port, and the board connects to a PAL or NTSC format TV displaying a 25×24 text or 160×160 bitmapped graphic image. No external keyboard and mouse are required to get started: all commands and programming can be executed easily using the on-board eight-key keypad.
FIGnition inFUZE from RS is supplied with a set of sample programs including games and utilities pre-programmed into the Flash memory chip. Schools will find the analogue data logger useful as it allows students to connect up simple sensors and graphically display the measurements. All source code is visible allowing students to experiment by modifying existing code before moving on to create their own.
