NEW PRODUCT - the EtherDue

We're proud to announce the newest product in our range of Ethernet-enabled Arduino-compatible boards - the Freetronics EtherDue. Just like the Arduino Due, the EtherDue has oodles of ARM-based power - but with the Freetronics additions including Ethernet network connectivity, microSD storage and more - while retaining the simplicity and ease of the Arduino IDE (with 100% compatibility).

The EtherDue is designed to give you high performance connectivity, in an easy to program package. Based on the 84MHz 32-bit Cortex M3 ARM processor which is many times more powerful than the 8-bit AVR processors of earlier Arduino models - you also get a massive 96 kilobytes of RAM (12x the EtherMega) and 512 kilobytes of flash (2x the EtherMega) so there's tons of rooms for the most complex programs to run.


Connectivity options are plentiful too - there's USB device and host sockets, two I2C buses, SPI bus, CAN bus, four hardware serial ports, and a real 12-bit Digital to Analog converter for analog voltage output. And just like the rest of our Ethernet-enabled range the EtherDue provides a number of options for Power over Ethernet. You can use the supplied jumpers and feed 7-20Vdc down the wire for cheap DIY version, or you can use our PoE Regulator 802.3AF along with a proper commercial PoE injector or switch that supplies 48Vdc. It's up to you.

The EtherDue is in stock and ready to ship, so for more information including getting started guides, tutorials, and to order your own - visit the EtherDue product page. And for more - we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.
