FEZ Spider Tinker Kit

The FEZ Spider Tinker Kit is a 100% open-source (hardware and software) .NET Gadgeteer compatible mainboard running .NET Micro Framework. This tinker kit enables users to program the FEZ Spider and its add-on modules from Microsoft's Visual Studio using C# or Visual Basic, allowing developers to take advantage of the extensive built-in libraries for networking, file systems, graphical interfaces, and peripherals. Embedded development is fast & easy (FEZ) thanks to .NET Micro Framework, .NET Gadgeteer, and the numerous GHI value added features such as WiFi and USB Host.

The FEZ Spider incorporates a 72Mhz LPC2478 32-bit ARM7 processor. With 11MB of SDRAM and 2.539MB of FLASH, the FEZ Spider is capable or running a large number of complex applications. Also, inside the kit you will find a plethora of modules used for control, Ethernet, power, sensors, storage, visuals, interface, and everything you need to hook them and neatly organize each one.
