Mouser Introduces Netduino 3 for Fast Prototyping

Mouser Electronics is now stocking the Netduino 3 electronics platform, which enables both quick-to-market commercial hardware solutions and personal electronics projects with maximum design flexibility and reduced risk. This newest version of the open-source Netduino platform includes the best of the features that made previous versions popular, with added Wi-Fi connectivity.


Netduino 3, now available from Mouser Electronics, is an open-source electronics platform designed around the Microsoft .NET Micro Framework, combining the ease of high-level coding and the raw feature set of the STM32 F4 family of microcontrollers.  The 32-bit STM32F427VG microcontroller on the Netduino 3 base model features a 168MHz ARM Cortex-M4 processor with 1MByte of dual-bank read-while-write flash memory, and the Netduino 3 WiFi and Ethernet models include an STM32F427VI with 2 MBytes of dual-bank flash memory. All Netduino 3 boards boast up to 256 kbytes of SRAM, including 64 kbytes of core-coupled memory (CCM). The Netduino 3 WiFi board supports 802.11b/g/n (2.4GHz) Wi-Fi across open networks as well as through WEP and WPA2 protocols, and includes support for SSL 3.0 security, including TLS 1.2. The Netduino 3 Ethernet board features a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet port.

Like Netduino 2, the new version features Arduino-compatible headers, including 22 GPIO pins with SPI, I2C, four UARTs (one RTS/CTS), and six PWM channels as well as six 12-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) channels. The board also boasts three GoBus 2.0 ports for additional plug-and-play capabilities and a microSD slot for up to 2 GBytes of storage. Netduino 3 also includes upgradable firmware for increased functionality in the future.
