Arduino Yun Mini launched today!
Today Arduino launches a new board: the Arduino YUN Mini.
Arduino Yun Mini is a breadboard PCB developed with ATmega 32u4 MCU and QCA MIPS 24K SoC CPU operating up to 400 MHz.
The Qualcomm Atheros CPU supports a Linux distribution based on OpenWRT named Linino. The board has built- in WiFi and supports 20 digital input/output pins (of which 7 can be used as PWM outputs and 12 as analog inputs), a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a micro USB connector, an ICSP header, two reset buttons and one user button.
As you can see from the photo below, the novelty resides in its small size, allowing it to be used in small spaces (e.g. particularly fit for home automation uses, where smaller devices are required to fit in boxes and the like), and in the pins for the breadboard prototyping, while maintaining the WiFi characteristics of the larger Arduino YUN.
In the photo you see an example of an Arduino YUN Mini turned in a small computer by itself, including an OLED display.
The Arduino Yun Mini can be complemented by three accessories: the dogRJ45, the dogUSB and the dog eMMC.
The first is an Ethernet port that can be added to the Arduino YUN Mini if one needs this type of port for their specific project.
The second one, dogUSB, is a USB port featuring also slot for a mini SD to extend the memory of the board.
The last one, which is dogUSB eMMC, is really the latest novelty in terms of accessories: it’s a USB port with an integrated 4 Giga Flash.
The user can add either a single accessory or two, according to their needs.
