Mouser offers maker boards for Arduino-compatible 32-bit processing
Available with multiple software support options, GHI Electronics offers FEZ t18 maker boards. Mouser Electronics is the first distributor to stock the latest boards in the FEZ series.
The advanced and user-friendly boards are pinout-compatible with Arduino Uno boards and shields and can be programmed using multiple programming languages and development environments.
The GHI Electronics FEZ maker boards incorporate a 32-bit STMicroelectronics STM32F4 Arm Cortex-M4 microcontroller with 512-kbytes of flash and 96-kbytes of SRAM. The STM32F4 chip is supported by a variety of common platforms, including Arduino, Arm mbed, MicroPython, Keil, GCC, and FreeRTOS, as well as GHI’s TinyCLR operating system (OS).
The TinyCLR OS enables managed .NET development and debugging using Visual Studio with support for programming in .NET, C# and Visual Basic over a USB cable with no additional hardware required. TinyCLR OS also includes the necessary drivers to make secure Wi-Fi connections available through a .NET-compatible interface.
The FEZ boards are available with an optional onboard Wi-Fi module that includes a secure networking feature set for the Internet of Things (IoT).
Mouser claims to stock the world’s widest selection of the latest semiconductors and electronic components for the newest design projects.
