The official Arduino Foundation has this week announced the arrival of the new Arduino Yùn Rev.2 which follows on from the original development board launched back in 2013 offering a small Linux machine and microcontroller in an Arduino form factor. Last year the Arduino Foundation decided it was time for a refresh and began designing the next generation of development board, this week officially launching the Yùn Rev.2.
Features of the new Arduino Yùn Rev.2 include a more powerful and robust power supply, new Ethernet connector together with a clever mounting solution that enables a wide variety of different applications using different shields, with no risk of accidental short-circuits. Other features include a Horizontal USB connector to save vertical space and an improved USB hub.
The software side the Arduino Yùn Rev.2 now includes an updated software stack to the latest version of OpenWRT, including all patches as well as SSL support on the bridge Arduino / Linux bridge. You can expect the Arduino Yùn Rev.2 to be made available later this month sometime during April 2018 although no pricing has been confirmed as yet.
