Unipi + arduino is it possible ?

hi all,
i was just holding the unipi in my hand and it got me thinking... is it even possible to have it connect and run from an arduino ?

Of course! However we do not have any code example...

However it would not be hard. You would have to make a custom cable between UniPi and Arduino and choose your pin mapping. There are many examples online of using Arduino to interface MCP23008 (which is used for Relays) and MCP3422 (used for AI) and even DS2482 interface for the 1Wire network. The rest is Digital Inputs which will be mapped directly to gpios of arduino.
