Netduino Go Open Source Electronics Platform & Starter Kit
Netduino Go is an Open Source Electronics Platform based on the original Netduino platform. It uses the .NET Micro Framework, which combines the ease of high-level coding with the raw features of microcontrollers. The Netduino Go has four times the speed (168MHz), six times the code space (384KB), and twice the available RAM (100KB+) of the Netduino Plus. The philosophy behind the Netduino Go is to eliminate the complexity involved with building DIY electronic projects. With this platform, all the peripherals have been virtualized, so the user can simply pick what they need and plug it in. Each module has a small microchip which works together with the mainboard. The Netduino Go Starter Kit is a plug and play component set with Arduino shield compatibility targeted towards education, but also popular with engineers and hobbyists. This starter pack comes with all the necessary parts to hit the ground running with Netduino Go. Included is the Go mainboard, the Shield Base, a button module, a potentiometer module, an RGB LED module, 4 Go cables, and a 3' microUSB cable to connect to a computer for programming and power.
