A Colourful New Way to Code
See your projects grow with Orangepip – a distinctive new range of open source boards which offer a colourful introduction to coding and prototyping. Based on the ATmega2560 and ATmega328 microcontrollers, the Orangepip boards are fully compatible with Arduino shields, sensors, accessories and software – giving users access to the global community of makers and projects.
The boards themselves are rich with features, including 16MHz oscillator, ATmega16u2 for serial conversion, 14 digital GPIO I/O pins (Mega2560), quick reset buttons and machine screw holes. The high performance ATmega 8-bit AVR RISC-based microcontrollers give Orangepip users enough power and memory to store and run multiple lines of complex code – the Kona328 and Segments328 being designed for beginners and Mega2560 for intermediate users.
The Orangepip Kona328 is an Arduino UNO compatible development board that is based around the ATmega328 microcontroller. The board features 14x digital I/O pins (6 of which may be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs and a 16MHz crystal oscillator. The board is simple to use, just requiring connection to a computer via USB to get started.
The Orangepip Mega2560 is an Arduino Mega2560 compatible development board that is based around the ATmega2560 microcontroller. The board features x54 digital I/O pins (14 of which may be used as PWM outputs), 16 analog inputs, 4x UARTS (hardware serial ports) and a 16MHz crystal oscillator. The board is simple to use, just requiring connection to a computer via USB to get started. The Orangepip Mega2560 is also compatible with most of the shields designed for the Arduino Mega2560.
The Segments328 kit is a ‘build your own Arduino’ kit. It includes al the through-hole components required. Just follow the easy-to-understand instructions to produce your own fully-programmable open source prototyping platform. It’s ideal for makers or students who want to increase their understanding of Single Board Computers work and develop their soldering skills at the same time.
