We are happy to announce that Samsung has joined the Arduino Certified Program with the launch of its new ARTIK platform. The collaboration was announced today, during the Internet of Things World in San Francisco, on stage by Young Sohn – President and Chief Strategy Officer, Samsung Electronics – and Massimo Banzi, Co-founder of Arduino.
The ARTIK family is among the elite group of Arduino Certified processors that are compatible with the Arduino ecosystem. The ARTIK platform can be programmed utilizing the Arduino Software Development Environment (IDE), allowing developers the benefit of tapping into the Arduino community for ideas, insights and best practices. Arduino integration brings the open ARTIK platform into the hands and minds of makers, hobbyists and first-time programmers, who will join developers in discovering new possibilities for the Internet of Things.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
