Netduino Plus

We’re thrilled to announce that a limited number of early release Netduino Plus boards are being hand-delivered to the Maker Shed at World Maker Faire NY for sale this weekend. Find the Maker Shed on page 3 of map in the Program Guide (PDF).

The $59.95 Netduino Plus is the newest member of the Netduino family. It packs more features than the $34.95 Netduino, adding Ethernet (with a full TCP/IP stack) and a Micro SD card reader.

  • All Netduino features plus integrated Ethernet and Micro SD capabilities
  • Ethernet jack is low-profile and hard plastic; no worries about “accidentally grounding/shorting” stack-on shields
  • Supports most Micro SD cards up to 2GB (FAT16/FAT32)
  • Netduino Plus is 100% open source – networking is lwIP (BSD license) and file system/SD card support is from Microsoft (Apache 2.0)

We’re only getting a limited number of these for sale onsite this weekend, and they won’t be in stock again until the holidays. These Netduino Plus boards are production versions of the hardware, but the firmware is in beta. You should expect a few quirks, but you’ll be able to find help and updates in the Netduino Forums. A final version of the firmware is expected before the holidays.

I’m a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I’m not tinkering, I’m probably editing a book for Maker Media.

    I’d pay someone to get me one at MakerFaire. I’m in upstate NY and couldn’t go, but this is the arduino board I’ve been waiting for!

    That is a fine looking board!! I like the thought that went into the design.

    I can wait until the holidays for the release, I am just getting back to the arduino pile :)and have still unused resources.

    This shield will be incredibly useful..nice work.

    @Brian- loved your writing in Hackzine, good to read it here again.
