Arduino changes the game of Microcontroller development boards and embedded system prototypes, by the way of simplifying the code and compiling and also hardware design. I hope if you are reading this article you may aware & handled arduino uno board or some other arduino boards.
It makes easy to sense the environment through sensors and controls the surroundings through output actuators, It is very easy to handle the Arduino IDE, software and codes and also hardware (all are open source) even newbie becomes expert within few hours.
Arduino pushes its boundary in all the way and it is ready to launch two new exciting products.
- Arduino Uno Wi-Fi Rev2
- Arduino VIDOR 4000
Both are has the power of Arduino and widely supports IoT (Internet of things) products through wifi.
Arduino UNO WIFI Rev2
This Arduino Uno wifi Rev2 board has all the functions of arduino uno rev3 board and additionally has the following features.
This board has an on board IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), this board can be connected to Wi-Fi network with the on board ublox wifi module.
The wifi connection is secured by the new ECC608 crypto chip accelerator, as well it has 14 digital input/output pins and 6 pins can be used as PWM outputs, then 6 analog input pins. Operating frequency of this board is 16 MHz, special feature of this board is it support OTA (Over the Air) programming either for transfer of Arduino sketch or wifi firmware.
Arduino VIDOR 4000
The Arduino VIDOR 4000 is new in MKR range products and it has on board FPGA hence it can be used for high speed DSP operations for Audio and Video processing.
This board has onboard 8 Mbyte SDRAM, 2 Mbyte QSPI flash with 1 MB user application space, Micro HDMI connector, MIPI camera connector, WiFi & BLE powered by ublox nina w10 series, then up to 25 user programmable pins and goes on.., Arduino we expect lot more from you for the embedded world.
