Arduino community gets bridge board to Raspberry Pi

microchipMicrochip Technology has worked with online distributor element14 on an Arduino compatible chipKIT Pi expansion board.

The board can be used to develop of 3.3V Arduino compatible applications for the Raspberry Pi using a 32-bit microcontroller as a prototype.

The chipKIT Pi, developed with inputs from the Arduino community, can interface directly to the Raspberry Pi I/O Expansion header without any additional components.

“The chipKIT Pi’s advanced features simplify Arduino based application development for the Raspberry Pi,” said Derek Carlson, Microchip’s vice president of Development Tools.

“This new expansion board also adds large memory space, fast performance and integrated peripherals for human-interface, audio-processing and advanced-control applications,” said Carlson.

Arduino connects to the cloud

Pre-registration is available for the chipKIT Pi Expansion Board, priced at $28, which will be available in the final week of September from Newark element14 and MCM in North America, Farnell element14 in Europe, CPC in the UK and Ireland, and element14 in Asia Pacific.
