New interesting Arduino platforms

Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. The microcontroller on the Arduino board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring and C) and the Arduino development environment (based on Processing). This combination of tools have made it a very easy to use platform for all


FemtoDuino is probably the smallest 328 based Arduino compatible board around. Those things are tiny: foot print is 20.7×15.2mm. They’re an Atmega328 that is arduino compatible. Hands on with the super tiny arudino: FemtoDuino article and this video give you an introduction to those interesting looking small boards. The downside of them is that they

Arduino Esplora

After I build my Atari joystick to USB conversion I saw news that the folks at Arduino seem to be stepping up their game on the same application area. With the new Arduino Leonardo board able to emulate USB keyboards and mice right out of the box, it seems the perfect time for Arduino designers

Arduino Leonardo and Micro

Arduino Leonardo is a pretty new microcontroller board based on the ATmega32u4. It has 20 digital input/output pins (of which 7 can be used as PWM outputs and 12 as analog inputs), a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a micro USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed


Netduino is an interesting dev board built around the .NET Micro framework with the goal of being compatible with Arduino shields. Netduino is an open source hardware platform that can run .NET Micro Framework 4.2 code. The Netduino is a dev board built around the .NET Micro framework with the goal of being compatible with

Very minimal Arduino-compatible circuit

I saw some days ago a pointer to The ultimate low-cost dev board. Or at least looks pretty close to it. The shrimp is a very, very minimal Arduino-compatible circuit meant to control all the pins on an ATMega328. The components only cost about £1.40 ($2.25 USD) when bought in volume, making it perfect for
