We also offer a variety of expansion modules (Pmods and Zmods) to create flexible I/O options for our other products.
Our Design Philosophy
We provide the building blocks and you provide the brilliance. We can’t possibly predict all of the innovative solutions you will discover, so we create products that free you to efficiently implement your own unique ideas. We focus on low mean time to blink, hardware modularity and customizability, strong support materials, and open-source principles. And we have fun doing it.
