End Of Life Notice Issued For Intel Edison, Galileo, And Joule Development Boards

Intel Issues EOL for three IoT Development Boards

Early on the morning of June 19, 2017 news began to circulate that Intel has began the End Of Life (EOL) process for its line of maker-friendly development boards. The development boards in question are the Intel Edison, Joule, and Galileo. Dozens of articles were written about the impact these modules would have on the maker scene, but like many other “game changing” development products, the lack of libraries, community, and project tutorials prevented these modules from becoming mainstream hardware that was coveted by makers worldwide.

The Arduino Zero is here and will ship globally on June 9th!

Massimo Banzi and Arduino unveil the Arduino Zero. Says first shipments begin June 9th.


Massimo Banzi says Arduino Zero to ship on June 9th

Bay Area Makerfaire 2015: The Arduino Zero has finally arrived after months of waiting! During his "State of Arduino" speech at the Bay Area Maker Faire 2015, Arduino founder Massimo Banzi ammounced that the first batch of Arduino Zero boards would begin shipping on June 9th. This is the first major Arduino board launch since the company announced that it would be partnering with Adafruit to launch its new "Genuino" brand. For those of you unfamiliar with the Arduino Zero, it's a new development board designed to power Arduino into the future, specifically to provide a development platform for the IoT, wearables, and automation. It's Arm Cortex M0+ core is powerful and much faster than the Uno's 8-bit microcontroller.  [node:read-more:link]

Arduino announces new US made "Genuino" brand amidst legal battle over "Arduino" brand

Arduino.cc and Adafruit rebrand Arduino into Genuino admist legal issues.Arduino.cc Announces New "Genuine" Brand​

Maker Faire Bay Area 2015: Arduino.cc has just announced a series of major changes to both the branding and manufacturing of its popular AVR-based development boards. In a partnership with Adafruit, Arduino.cc is launching a new global sister brand to the Arduino called "Genuino" (Translating to Genuine in Italian). The Genuino brand will encompass all of the official Arduino boards such as the Yun, Uno, Leonardo, etc, and will be manufactured at Adafruit's Manhattan facility in New York. This is a major move for Arduino.cc as the company has always taken pride in manufacturing its boards in Italy where Arduino was founded.  [node:read-more:link]

Arduino launches new Arduino Yun, a Arduino Leonardo-style development board with built in Wifi and Linux

Arduino Yun



Arduino PR -  Arduino Yún is the first member of a new groundbreaking line of wifi products combining the power Linux with ease of use of Arduino. Yún means “cloud” in chinese language as the purpose of this board is to make it simple to connect to complex web services directly from Arduino. The first Arduino Yún is the combination of a classic Arduino Leonardo (based on the Atmega32U4 processor) with a Wifi system-on-a-chip running Linino (a MIPS GNU/Linux based on OpenWRT).
