The Netduino Plus 2 has Ethernet cooked in already! There is a full TCP/IP stack with examples ready to go, and a microSD card slot for storing files
Netduino Plus 2 has four times the speed (168MHz), six times the code space (384KB), and twice the available RAM (100KB+) of Netduino Plus 1.
four serial ports
six PWM channels
power headers that turn on and off via code, so you can power on shields when you want to
pins can drive up to 25mA of current to light LEDs
Arduino “R3” compatibile to support future shields (in addition to existing shields, thanks to Netduino Plus 2’s 5V digital I/O tolerance)
OneWire and Time Server directly inside the NETMF firmware
space in flash for future features
This board is built to last, to get even more feature-rich over time.
You might notice that we swapped out the 6-pin ICSP header for a 10-pin MiniJTAG header. The goal is to enable developers to compile their own firmware using GCC–and debug both native and managed code at the same time. If you need the ICSP header for a shield, simply sandwich a MakerShield in the middle: it’ll route the ICSP pins for you.
Code! Debug! Repeat!
.NET Micro Framework combines the ease of high-level coding and the raw features of microcontrollers. Enjoy event-based programming,
multi-threading, line-by-line debugging, breakpoints and more.
3rd-party accessories offer pre-built functionality like GPS location, servo control and battery power. Netduino is also pin-compatible with Arduino shields. 3rd-party drivers are required for some Arduino shields.
Design files included.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
