Arduino stamp & evaluation board for MSP430F417

SparkFun just dropped a few new items, here are a couple I thought looked good…

Arduino Stamp: Arduino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple i/o board and a development environment that implements the Processing/Wiring language. Arduino can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects or can be connected to software on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP). The open-source IDE can be downloaded for free (currently for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux).

This is the new, smaller, Arduino Stamp with ATmega168 (double memory size of the standard Arduino ATmega8). This device is quite a bit smaller and requires an external serial connection for programming. Because this is a new device, the price is higher than the larger NG board. Board comes fully assembled and tested with ATMega168 pre-loaded with bootloader.

Evaluation Board for MSP430F417: This is the second generation development/prototype board for the MSP430F417 processor. Comes with battery power supply circuit, buzzer, new specialized LCD display, crystal oscillator circuit, JTAG port, LEDs, 2 larger Buttons, RS232 interface, and extension ports – Link.

    So, I can pay $60 from Spark Fun, or $50 from Olimex directly?

    machine321 – i think that’s up to you :)

  3. mechanisma22 says:

    Spark fun doesn’t sell the USB programmer for the Arduino stamp mini.

  4. irbis says:

    Be careful with Arduino mini. It has not the pinout of i2c, what limits severely the uses of the board.
