Microduino: small size, great power


For hobbyists and professionals, the electronic prototyping platform Arduino from Italy has been one of their best friends out there for developing quick projects. Its drawback? It is too expensive and not small or flexible enough for certain projects.

Microduino studio, a team crossing China and U.S., has come up with a solution—the Arduino-compatible Microduino, will debate on Kickstarter on August, 2013. Microduino divides Arduino circuit into two separate parts, the controller core (Microduino-Core) and the communication core (Microduino-FT232R), which can be stacked up and function together as a full Arduino Uno. The result is a smart, powerful, low-cost Microduino of the size of a quarter.
