Everything needed to start recording underwater sound
HydroMoth is the latest product from the AudioMoth range and offers everything needed to start recording underwater sound for extended periods of time at depths of at least 30 meters. HydroMoth hardware is directly compatible with all AudioMoth firmware, meaning you can use the device in any number of underwater applications from scheduled recording in coral reefs to triggering recordings by amplitude or frequency in freshwater ponds.
Please note that we are still experiencing a major chip supply constraint for the MCU for all AudioMoth products. We are therefore limiting the amount of Hydromoths available in this round to 975 units. This matches the amount of stock that we have in hand so be assured that we will fulfill this round in a timely manner.
Capable of recording uncompressed audio to micro SD from 8k to 384k samples/second underwater (when encased)
Tested to an underwater depth of 30m for 2 months
More accurate timekeeping for longer deployments
(Backing this campaign will include a clear, AudioMoth underwater case)
ICE40UP5K FPGA module with wireless interface driven by ESP32-C3
Designed by a pro for pros established and upcoming, the ICE-V Wireless by QWERTY Embedded Design allows Wi-Fi and Bluetooth control of an FPGA by combining an Espressif ESP32C3 SoC with a Lattice iCE40. Easily connect multiple sensors or peripherals to either the ESP32 or FPGA via hardwire and control it all via Wi-Fi or BLE.
ESP32-C3-MINI (2.4 GHz Wi-Fi + BLE 5.0)
64 Mbit QSPI PSRAM
