The Solarbotics SketchBoard


A fully assembled surface mount Arduino-compatible.

Out of stock



The Freeduino is designed to be a mix of DIY and Arduino-with-upgrades. But for those who just need to get to coding instead of soldering, we've morphed the Freeduino into the Solarbotics Sketchboard, a fully assembled Arduino-compatible featuring the stability and reliability of the venerable Duemilanove and the interoperability of the Uno R3.

The Solarbotics Sketchboard is a open-and-use device just like the Arduino Uno, but manufactured by Solarbotics and incorporating the additional features of the Freeduino. We avoid the inconsistencies of using a USB-emulator IC by sticking with the very reliable FTDI USB interface IC. USB connections are made through a strongly anchored micro-USB jack that won't be damaged when using it with today's standard smartphone cables and chargers.
