Honest Reviews from Real DIY-ers

Conor Cawley

The practicality of a prototyping product like this is more than obvious. Rather than buying and using expensive components that require a lot of work and can fail you at a moment’s notice, evive takes it all and puts it in one simple-to-use machine.

If you’re into hardware projects I think you get the idea and the potential of how the evive works, and how useful it could be to your projects, but one of its unique features is the ability to upload custom menus and functionality.

FAQs

Why should I start my project-making journey with evive and not any other development board?

Development boards like the Arduino and Raspberry Pi are no doubt great places to start. But these are of limited use without accessories. You will require tons of sensors, will have to invest money in purchasing shields for every other thing, deal with unnecessarily complex circuits which may not be very difficult to make for an experienced person but extremely hectic to debug for everyone, need to have a decent programming background, all of which consume a lot of time and despite Arduino and Pi being affordable, you will end up investing a lot of money while making projects.

evive is an extremely power-packed and versatile prototyping platform, with features worth over $300 built-in, be it plug-and-play control for actuators, a built-in audio-visual interface, ammeter and voltmeter functions, basic oscilloscope functions, built-in BLE/ ESP/ XBee ports, etc. If you have decent experience already, evive would be sufficient for your learning-building-debugging needs. If you’re still a beginner, the evive Starter Kit would be recommended.

Does evive support other platforms?

evive is an OSH (open source hardware) and can be programmed using conventional interfaces like Arduino and graphical interfaces like Scratch/PictoBlox. We have also provided instructions to use it with complex applications like Matlab, LabView, etc.

What is the battery life once fully charged?

evive has inbuilt 2600mAh 3.7V Samsung Li-ion battery. Normally it runs for about 6-8 hours once fully charged, while it takes a similar time for charging using a USB charger (mobile phone charger) or any other power source.

How safe and robust is evive as kids and beginners end up making mistakes dangerous to them and the device?

evive has over-current and reverse voltage protection at power input. Beginners who don’t understand about polarity would not damage the board. In most of the cases, evive temporarily switches itself off in case of a short-circuit. Battery charging-discharging circuit has over-current, under-voltage protection to take care of the  Li-ion battery. We have put our best efforts to make evive safe for everyone, but in case anything happens, the insulated plastic covering will ensure the safety of the user.

How can I power up evive?

evive has its own inbuilt 2600mAh Samsung Li-on battery. It can also be powered up externally by a USB wall charger, power bank, DC wall adapter, laptops/ workstations, and >12V batteries.

What are the voltage and current limitations?

evive has a fixed 5V/3A supply, a fixed 3.3V/0.8A supply, and a variable voltage supply from 1.25V to 30V with a fixed current supply of 3A.

Is the Arduino MEGA used in evive replaceable?

Yes. The Arduino MEGA used can be replaced by accessing it by opening the bottom casing. Despite our efforts and your care, sometime things might blow up, that's why the replaceability.

Can I use Arduino shields like the Ethernet shield or GPS shield with evive?

Yes. All Arduino UNO shields can be used with evive. But with evive, you probably won't need to spend your pretty dollars on them. Much of that stuff is already available as built-in features in evive.

Can I use evive to run an actuator which consumes very heavy current?

Yes. Though evive can't supply more than 2.5A in total and 1A per motor driver channel, you can plug in your external motor driver to evive and control it through our interface.

Devices like Bluetooth module, XBee, ESP, etc work at 3.3V, but Arduino works at 5V TTL. So, is there a risk of damage to such devices?

No, evive includes Logic Level Converters to support all such devices.

Can I use evive with Windows/Linux/Mac OS?

Yes. You can use it with any operating system which supports at least one of the development platforms we've mentioned.

    This tool does everything, and then some more...

    Martin Bachmann (verified owner)

    The evive is a truly amazing tool, a dream come true for each diy enthusiast. Being able to quickly use existing, assembled slider switches, potis etc. and above all a neat and easy to program display is what makes all the difference. Not having to worry about various power sources is another great helper. And that’s only scratching the surface of what evive offers!
