  • I think the units are way overpriced. Compared to a Raspberry pi with a bunch more memory and options, but you get the software and community. I want to buy more, but feel like I’m being charged multiple times for the compiler even though I’m a single user.

  • Well they are majorly different.

  • Who doesn’t have internet now? I mean if you travel a lot maybe I could see an issue, but there is WiFi and cell connections everywhere. It’s actually a nice board. Built in ethernet, and the size is really nice. And the size is good too.

  • I had the add-ons in the wrong folder.

  • And I can see and connect via CoolTerm to the device, but that’s it.

  • I am attempting to use this board on a Mac with no success. Add-on files zipped in sketch/hardware folder. I’ve restarted, and there is no addition to the Tools>Boards menu in Arduino IDE. Any help? Thanks

  • this is for the jack that has magnetic(transformers) built in to protect the chip. This board works with the mag jack. The board you referred to works with a standard jack with no magnetic. As far as I know the pin out is spaced differently.

  • Does it use a version of the Cortex M3 without ethernet support? The mbed has ethernet.

  • Just what I needed. I want to learn how to hook up a plain 328 on a breadboard for a compact miny project. I am aware that buying these chips plain may require a programmer. This will teach me how to hook up all components required for minimal use of 328 chip. Thanks!

  • Considering that Arduino came out with a 32U4 board now(Leonardo) and there is more support in the Arduino IDE, will this board be able to work with the same support as the Leonardo since they are the same chip?
