The module, developed around the ATmega328P processor, measure 1 x 1.1in and is equipped with a standard U shaped 27pin connector system to enable stacking of modules. There are 13 digital I/O and seven analogue I/O available in the base module. Three 'core' modules are being offered. The Microduino-Core is powered by the ATmega328P and is said to be 'completely compatible' with Arduino Uno. Microduino-Core+ features the ATmega644PA, along with two serial ports and an extra 10 digital I/O. Finally, a further Core+ variant features the ATmega1284P. The Microduino range is said to include a variety of modules, covering network, wireless communication, SD storage, GPS, Wi-Fi, motor/stepper driver and OLED displays. According to the Kickstarter page, the devices will sell for as little as $8.
