Arduino Blog: Dinner is Ready

Hardware
We are launching two new board and announcing some upcoming products.

Arduino Uno

This board will replace the Duemilanove. We replaced the aging FTDI chipset with a custom made usb-serial converter built with an Atmel ATmega8U2 this provides lower latency and doesn’t require to install any drivers on mac and linux (on windows all you need is a simple .inf file) more advanced users will be able to reprogram the USB chip to make the board show up as a variety of USB devices (Keyboards, Mice, Joysticks, MIDI etc)

Arduino Mega 2560

An upgrade for the Arduino Mega which will sport the new Atmel USB chip plus an ATMega2560 processor with twice as much flash memory.

Tinker Toolkit
We have been working for a few years on this modular system of sensors and actuators.
