Arduino launchs new Nano board range
Arduino has established itself as one of the leading small open source single-board microcontroller and microcontroller kit makers on the market with its designs popular with enthusiasts through to schools and universities. Founded in Italy, the company has launched its new Nano range of compact project boards that also happen to be among the cheapest it currently offers. They range in price from just US$9.90 for the Nano Every through to US$29.50 for the Nano 33 BLE Sense that includes Bluetooth as well as a range of proximity, gesture and environmental sensors.
Arduino co-founder Massimo Banzi issued this statement to accompany the launch:
The new Nanos are for those millions of makers who love using the Arduino IDE for its simplicity and open source aspect, but just want a great value, small and powerful board they can trust for their compact projects. With prices from as low as $9.90 for the Nano Every, this family fills that gap in the Arduino range, providing makers with the Arduino quality they deserve for those everyday projects.
All four Ardunino Nano board are currently up for pre-order. In addition to the Nano Every and Nano 33 BLE, there is also the Nano 33 IoT that costs US$18 and the Nano 33 BLE that costs US$19. Each model is also available in variant with headers. Also new from Arduino is a MKR GSM 1400 Cellular SIM Kit. The Nano Every and the Nano 33 IoT will ship from mid-June while the Bluetooth-equipped Nano 33 BLE and Nano 33 BLE Sense will ship from mid-July.
