Genuino Uno (R3)
We are proud to finally have the Genuino boards from the arduino.cc team in stock! Genuino is Arduino.cc’s sister-brand created by Arduino co-founders Massimo Banzi, David Cuartielles, Tom Igoe, and David Mellis, the Arduino.cc team and community. This brand is used for boards and products sold outside the US.
The Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328P. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz quartz crystal, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.. You can tinker with your UNO without worrying too much about doing something wrong, worst case scenario you can replace the chip for a few dollars and start over again.
"Uno" means one in Italian and was chosen to mark the release of Arduino Software (IDE) 1.0. The Uno board and version 1.0 of Arduino Software (IDE) were the reference versions of Arduino, now evolved to newer releases. The Uno board is the first in a series of USB Arduino boards, and the reference model for the Arduino platform; for an extensive list of current, past or outdated boards see the Arduino index of boards.
Genuino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple i/o board and a development environment that implements the Processing/Wiring language. Genuino can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects or can be connected to software on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP). The open-source IDE can be for free (currently for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux).
What is Genuino? Why don't you sell the Arduino-named boards?
The original Arduino team basically split into two last year due to internal conflicts. The two sides are:
- The arduino.cc team with most of the original members and the community support. They hold the Arduino trademark in the USA. In the rest of the world they are now selling the boards with the Genuino name.
- The arduino.org team that used to be the manufacturing company since the begginning of the Arduino project. They hold the Arduino trademark in the EU.
You can read more about it here, here and here. For Månsteri Store this meant that we had to end our distribution agreement with arduino.org, since we were not comfortable at all in continuing with them. Now we have made a new distibution agreement with the arduino.cc/Genuino team.
