Description: The STEMTera is an innovation in breadboard history. It is the first breadboard with an Arduino-compatible hardware suite built in that works with thousands of shields. With ATmega16U2/32U2 pins exposed, native USB projects can be easily developed using the LUFA framework. The STEMTera also features a LEGO® brick-compatible bottom that empowers projects to be built beyond imagination. This version of the STEMTera is housed in a durable black ABS plastic enclosure.
Since the STEMTera is a development board built directly into a breadboard, it eliminates the need for messy wires to be strewn about your work space. By having two microcontrollers built inside the breadboard, it provides direct access to ATmega328P and ATmega16U2’s I/O pins. With the 21 I/O pins of the ATmega32U2 exposed, users will be able to develop native USB projects with ease. These extra I/O pins can work directly with the LUFA framework without having a middleman to translate messages as with the original Arduino UNO. Additionally, the STEMTera is pin-to-pin compatible with an Arduino UNO R3 shield and supports multiple IDEs, including: Atmel® Studio, Arduino IDE, AVR-GCC, AVR-GCC with LUFA, Scratch and more!
The STEMTera even has a LEGO-compatible 10x14 bottom cover that enables LEGO bricks to be connected directly into the breadboard without using special mounting techniques or adapters.
Note: The STEMTera is available for pre-order. We expect orders to start shipping very soon. Adding a pre-order product to an order may cause a delay. Be sure to uncheck “ship complete order” in your cart to avoid delays in shipping in-stock items.

Really like that it is self-contained.
It’s so convienent having an Arduino built into a breadboad.
I got it on time. Worked out-of-box. Plugged in a 1Sheeld+ and proceeded to use my Nexus sensors. Way Cool. But, I was wondering about something. How about getting rid of the second controller and using the space for internal Lipo’s with 5v or 3v toggle and rechargeable circuitry on board. Then it’s a real “Unplug-N-Go” project. Or standalone as some might say. In any case, I like it.
By the way, what IS the real purpose of having that second controller anyway??? Am I missing something???
Another quick thought as to its use. Like I did. Make it talk to the kids cellphone. That will get their attention and hold on to it. HEY!!! Put a Simblee as the second processor… Yeah, that’s the ticket!!!
