As easy to use as an Arduino Uno board, both powerful and efficient thanks to its Intel® Curie microcontroller – it’s time you met Genuino 101, the small development platform that will make you love Arduino even more!DISCONTINUED ARTICLE.
Genuino 101: as simple as an Arduino Uno
Genuino 101 has everything and more to reassure lovers of Arduino Uno – it’s an electronics board boasting a similar form factor and peripheral list as the UNO as well as being fully programmable in the open-source Arduino environment. Which means you have 14 digital inputs/outputs (only 4 of which can be used as PWM outputs, rather than 6), 6 analogue inputs and a USB connector.
So what makes Genuino 101 so different? Well let’s take a closer look...
…and test the performance of its Intel® Curie microcontroller!
With the Genuino 101, you benefit from a dual-core Intel® Curie microcontroller clocked at 32 MHz (rather than the 16 MHz of the Arduino Uno). Plus, there’s a 6-axis accelerometer/gyroscope and above all a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connection allowing you to begin designing low-power consumption connected objects. In short, a superb example of what Arduino and Intel® are capable of when they join forces!
