Retirado do blog oficial Arduino:
For the second year in a row we decided to announce our new products
at Maker Faire in NYC.
Tomorrow morning, if you come to the Arduino tent, you will be able to
Arduino 1.0, we finally froze the Arduino API, the IDE and the layout
of the boards. We’ve made some minor additions to the Arduino
connectors to make them more flexible. Tomorrow you will be able to
download the release candidate and in 1 month of frantic testing with
the community, the platform will be ready and stable.
Arduino Leonardo, a low cost Arduino board with the Atmega32u4. It has
the same shape and connectors as the UNO but it has a simpler circuit.
On the software side it has a nifty USB driver able to simulate a
mouse , a keyboard, a serial port (with more drivers coming later). As
usual for Arduino, everything will be released as open source (Core,
Arduino Due, a major breakthrough for Arduino because we’re launching
an Arduino board with a 32bit Cortex-M3 ARM processor on it. We’re
using the SAM3U processor from ATMEL running at 96MHz with 256Kb of
Flash, 50Kb of Sram, 5 SPI buses, 2 I2C interfaces, 5 UARTS, 16 Analog
Inputs at 12Bit resolution and much more.
Instead of just releasing the finished platform we are opening the
process to the community early on. We’re going to be demoing the board
and giving away some boards to a selected group of developers who will
be invited to shape the platform while it’s been created. After Maker
Faire, we will begin selling a small batch of Developer Edition boards
on the Arduino store (store.arduino,cc) for members of the community
who want to be join the development effort. We plan a final and tested
release by the end of 2011
Arduino Wifi Shield. It adds Wi-Fi communication capabilities to any
Arduino. Instead of using any of the classic WiFi modules on the
market we wanted to have something that will provide the maximum level
of hackability to the user. The shield is based on a wifi micro module
made by H&D Wireless coupled with a powerful AVR32 processor that
carries the full TCP-IP stack leaving room to add your own protocols
and customisations. We’ve also worked hard to make sure that you will
be able to migrate your code from the Ethernet Shield with minor
We’re also going to show some prototypes of new platforms we’ve been
working on: We have robots, new IDEs and more.
It has been a crazy few months and we want to thank ATMEL very much
the support that we got on all the new products.
Come over to Maker Faire and have a look for yourself!
