The Arduino Yún

The Arduino Yún is now available for sale for the first time in the United States in the Maker Shed at Maker Faire in New York. Until now it’s only been available online from the Arduino store shipping from Europe.


Announced earlier in the year at Maker Faire Bay Area, the Arduino Yún is the first Linux-based Arduino board putting it in a unique position—at least for now—in the Arduino hardware lineup. It combines a Atmega32U4-based “classic” Arduino, similar to the Ardunio Leonardo, embedded directly on the same board as a Wi-Fi system-on-a-chip running Linino—a MIPS Linux distribution based around OpenWRT.

Make Special Edition

Also available is the Make: Special Edition Arduino Unos. Functionally, they are identical to a regular Arduino Uno R3 but feature exclusive Make branding to set them apart from the rest!
