A new piece of Arduino hardware has been unveiled this week which would be the perfect addition to any Internet of Things project and takes the form of the 4Duino-24 Intelligent Arduino Display Module with one support built in.
The 4Duino-24 offers a display which is 2.4 inches in size and provides a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. Watch the video below to learn more about this unique display and development board that is equipped with a ATmega32U4 MCU and is powered by the 4D Systems PICASO Graphics Processor.
That offers an array of display functionality and options for any designer and Maker says the Arduino website. Markku Riihonen, Products and Business Development Manager, 4D Systems explains :
For years Arduino/Genuino users have been taking advantage of our Intelligent Display Modules for adding graphical user interfaces with touch capability to their applications. With the 4Duino-24 we wanted to make something a bit more special and combine some of the more popular shields and the ATmega32U4 into a compact easy to use package. We are delighted to become part of the AtHeart program and very much look forward to seeing a full variety of applications running on the 4Duino-24.
The Arduino website writes :
The 4Duino-24 also includes the popular ESP8266 module, which is pre-programmed with the AT command set firmware enabling the 4Duino to have Wi-Fi functionality right out of the box.
Beyond that, the 4Duino-24 is equipped with an onboard microSD connector and headers in the layout of an Arduino, including power pins (5V, 3.3V, GND and VIN), 20 digital I/O pins—seven of which can be used as PWM outputs, while 12 pins have analog input capabilities.
