Arduino MKR1000

By Sam Brown / May 31, 2016

Arduino MKR1000

The MKR1000 packs three essential features to simplify your next Internet-connected creation.

First: Built-in secure WiFi.

Second: The MKR1000 has a battery connector. It has the smarts to charge that battery while it’s plugged in, and use the battery while it’s unplugged.

Third, it makes that battery last, solving problems in fewer seconds and drawing less power each second than the Uno. Similar care was taken to keep the WiFi’s power needs low.

The MKR1000 has a slim, breadboard-ready shape like the Arduino Micro, rather than the classic shield-ready form factor of the Uno. Arduino has dropped hints that the MKR1000 is the first of a line of MKR boards, so we expect to see the Arduino community building on this board for years to come.
