Arduino, the developer of programming boards for makers and entrepreneurs, has introduced a new low-power family of boards designed for industrial applications, artificial intelligence (AI) edge processing and robotics.

Arduino announced the first member of the Portenta family at this week’s CES 2020 called the Portenta H7 module featuring a dual-core ARM Cortex-M7 and Cortex-M4 running at 480 MHz and 240 MHz, respectively, with industrial temperature-range components. The module is capable of running Arduino code, Python and Javascript to make it accessible to a wide audience.

The developer boards combine a low-code application development platform with modular hardware, allowing companies or makers to build, measure and iterate without lengthy integration projects.

Arduino said the software is evolving to support high-performance hardware with the Arduino code running on top of the ARM mBed OS source internet of things (IoT) operating system to provide enterprise grade features with a user-friendly front-end.

The Arduino Portenta H7 module is available for beta customers now with general availability scheduled to start in February. The beta program is for enterprise and small medium business (SMB) customers as well as professional makers.
