Arduino Simplicity Gaining Roots Through Arduino Yun

Arduino Yun is actually a microcontroller board based on Atmega 32u4 and AtherosAR9331. Atheros is a processor which could support Linux distribution.

Features of Arduino Yun

  • Built in Ethernet and Wifi Support
  • USB-A Port
  • Micro SD card slot
  • 20 digital Input and Output pins (of which 7 can be used as PWM outputs and 12 as analog inputs)
  • 16 MHz crystal oscillator
  • Micro USB- connection
  • ICSP Header
  •  3 reset buttons

We opt for Arduino Yun because it bridges the gap between Arduino environment and Linux environment through use of Atmega 32u4 microcontroller based on Arduino and Atheros AR9331 processor based on Linux distribution, using this processor, one could enable Wifi and Ethernet Interface, and well what could you to do with your processor endless project ideas, well that’s true, you could try high end embedded system projects, it will run with ease.

How it differs from normal Arduino boards?

Normal Arduino boards are on the basis of microcontroller architecture, which has many limitations in terms of physical computation, you might not go ahead with your all project ideas, because its memory capacity, processing speed, has some constraints. But imagine Arduino’s user free environment merging with a high end processor, its endless. Well, I can’t wait to get this Yun and start to work. Guys have you bought this cool fellow?
