Arduino presented four new motherboards based on the Nano series microcontrollers, which are distinguished by relatively high performance for their size and reasonable price. They are fully compatible with previous Nano models.
Nano Every at the price of $ 9.9 has become the most budgetary model of the new line. It is based on the ATMega4809 microcontroller operating at a frequency of 20 MHz, equipped with 48 KB of flash memory and 6 KB of RAM.
The second novelty was the model Nano 33 IOT with a price tag of $ 18. It works on the SAMD21G18A microcontroller with a frequency of up to 48 MHz, has 256 KB of flash memory and 32 KB of RAM. The board is equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules, is compatible with the Arduino IoT Cloud platform and includes a chip capable of storing cryptographic keys at the hardware level, which provides a secure connection Transport Layer Security (TLS).
The next in the line is the Nano 33 BLE worth $ 19. It has Bluetooth support and is based on the nRF52480 microcontroller with a frequency of 64 MHz, 1 MB of internal memory and 256 KB of RAM.
The most expensive novelty was the Nano 33 BLE Sense with a price tag of $ 29.5. It comes with a set of additional sensors (nine-axis inertial measuring unit, sensors for temperature, pressure, humidity, light, color and gestures) to support wearable devices and control gestures. Otherwise, it is completely identical to the model Nano 33 BLE.
Arduino also announced the Arduino SIM module for adding cellular support to the MKR GSM 1400 board, which costs $ 69.9. Such a SIM card can be used in more than 100 countries of the world with a single tariff plan that offers 10 MB of free data for up to 90 days, after which 5 MB per month cost $ 1.5.
New Nano-boards are already available for pre-order, and deliveries will begin in late July.
