How many Arduino can I manage with AM

#1 Post by SimoneGalli » Fri Jun 18, 2021 5:15 am

Hello everybody,
I am developing a B737 project with AM and Arduino and I would like to know the maximum number of Arduino that I can manage with AirManager. When I flash Arduino I have the ID A to P (16 ID) available. If I run AirManager on a PC and AirPlayer on another PC, can I manage 32 Arduino?
Thank you
Simone

Hi,

The simple answer to your question is yes. Also note that the ID’s are per board type so you can have 16 id’d for the MEGA2560, another 16 for UNO, etc etc per machine. That should provide plenty. But if that is not enough for you then there is always message port where you can interface non natively supported hardware such as multiplexers, io expanders etc

You can have more than 2600 I/O pins with Arduino's, then you can expand that with Raspberry Pi Pico's. And as Tony also confirmed, add an Air Player or Air Manager PC or Raspberry Pi, and you can do another 2600+.

No guarantees if Windows or the Raspberry Pi can handle 96 USB devices ;)
