Arduino, a well-known open source hardware maker, has launched a new line of computing boards. The prices range anywhere from $10 to $30, so let’s take a look at what’s in store for IoT enthusiasts.
Arduino is the leading microcontroller kit manufacturer among hobbyists and universities alike. Their Nano range of microcontrollers is one of the most affordable ones to have hit the market. Looking at concrete examples, Nano Every costs $9.90 and Nano 33 BLE Sense will set you back by $29.50. While the former one is great for any budget, the latter caters to the needs of those who are looking for something more by providing extra functionality with its built-in gesture, proximity, and environmental sensors.
Massimo Banzi, the co-founder of Arduino, commented that the new line of products is suitable for the crowd that’s looking for simplicity, but also a sense of reliability and budget-friendliness. Basically, a board to power their projects, the kind they can trust. Since Nano Every comes with an affordable price tag of $9.90, it should be within reach for everyone while still offering the reliability that users deserve.
The four Arduino Nano models are currently available for pre-order. Apart from the Arduino Nano Every and Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense we’ve already mentioned, there’s also the Nano 33 IoT (priced at $18) and Nano 33 BLE (priced at $19). You can expect both the Nano 33 IoT and the Nano Every to start shipping in the middle of June. However, the Nano 33 BLE and Nano 33 BLE Sense will become available in mid-July.
