Some of our readers might remember the tiny Digispark Arduino enabled USB developer board that launched after a successful crowd funding campaign back in August 2012.
Now the team behind the tiny Digispark have unveiled a slightly larger development board in the form of the Digispark Pro, which has been created to provide users with a tiny Arduino IDE ready, USB and mobile dev board and ecosystem.
The Digispark Pro is cheap enough to leave in any project and provides wireless connectivity, BLE, and support for up to 25+ shields when required. Its creators explain a little more:
“Serial over USB debugging, USB programmable, 14 i/o, SPI, I2C, UART, USB Device Emulation, Mobile Development Ready, Optional BT, BLE, Mesh, and Wi-Fi.
The super small, dirt cheap, always open source, Arduino compatible, USB (and Mobile and Wireless!) development (and production) platform, and follow-up to the original Digispark.
Easier to use, more pins, more program space, more features, more reliable – supporting the entire existing Digispark ecosystem of 25+ shields and adding Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, BLE shields and more! Ready for all your projects – including mobile hardware development! All still super affordable!
The Digispark Pro Ecosystem is the cheapest, Arduino compatible development platform for Mobile and Wireless hardware development.”
The Digispark Pro project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think Digispark Pro is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Digispark Pro become a reality.
