Arduino released a new microcontroller board called Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect based on the Raspberry Pi RP2040. The board adds Wi-Fi and Bluetooth BLE 5 capabilities, and is specifically designed for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
Arduino Pro has released a remote monitoring and control solution called Arduino Edge control. The board features uBlox Nina B306 BLE 5 module and two Arduino MKR expansion slots.
Arduino Pro released a breakout board called Arduino Portenta Breakout to enhance the development, testing and debugging capabilities of their Portenta H7 industrial development platform.
Arduino Pro adds Portenta Machine Control, a new industrial control unit based on Portenta H7 design. It is a DIN rail compatible, fully-centralized and low power unit that can be programmed via the Arduino framework.
Espresssif announced their new Wi-Fi 6 and BLE 5 System-on-Chip based on RISC-V CPU core. The Wi-Fi radio is backward compatible and targets low power Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
Raspberry Pi foundation released their new in-house designed microcontroller called RP2040 with dual ARM Cortex-M0+ core running at 133MHz, and a new development board called Raspberry Pi Pico.
