Arduino enthusiasts or those looking to get started using the awesome micro controller platform might be interested in a new Arduino compatible built-in breadboard that has been created with Arduino shields LEGO bricks and native USB support.
Watch the video below to learn more about the world’s first bread with a built-in Arduino compatible inside that supports thousands of shields. Also with the ATmega16U2 exposed, native USB projects can be easily developed using the LUFA framework, say its creators.
STEMTera Breadboard is specifically designed to solve common issues using Arduino with a breadboard especially in the lab or classroom. There were 3 main objectives I wanted to focus on when designing STEMTera Breadboard:
– Reduce the headache of managing students’ messy wires flying around microcontroller board and breadboard during class.
– Enhance the current design (Arduino UNO) for native USB development without changing or adding extra components.
– Improve adaptability, mountability and protection, enabling more projects to be built in the lab or classroom.
Working with a microcontroller board and breadboard can be messy, especially when multiple wires need to be connected from the microcontroller board to the breadboard. When wires travel a distance from the microcontroller board to the breadboard, there are often connection issues and the entangled wires also make debugging the circuit extremely hard.
