Mouser Electronics, Inc. is stocking the Netduino 3 electronics platform that enables quick-to-market commercial hardware solutions and personal electronics projects featuring maximum design flexibility and reduced risk. The new version of the open-source Netduino platform includes popular features, with added Wi-Fi connectivity.
Designed around the Microsoft .NET Micro Framework, the platform combines ease of high-level coding and the raw feature set of the STM32 F4 family of microcontrollers. The 32-bit ST microcontroller on the Netduino 3 features a 168MHz ARM Cortex-M4 processor with 1 MBytes of dual-bank, read-while-write flash memory, and the Netduino 3 WiFi and Ethernet models come with 2Mbytes of dual-bank flash memory.
All Netduino 3 board boasts up to 256 KBytes of SRAM, including 64 kbytes of core-coupled memory (CCM). The Netduino 3 Wi-Fi board supports 802.11b/g/n (2.4GHz) Wi-Fi across open networks as well as through WEP and WPA2 protocols, and includes support for SSL 3.0 security, including TLS 1.2. The Netduino 3 Ethernet board features a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet port.
Netduino 3 features Arduino-compatible headers, including 22 GPIO pins with SPI, I2C, four UARTs and six PWM channels as well as six 12-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) channels. The board also has three GoBus 2.0 ports for additional plug-and-play capabilities and a microSD slot for up to 2 GBytes of storage. Netduino 3 also includes upgradable firmware for increased functionality in the future.
