Raspberry Pi expansion board
29 January 2014, Computer/Embedded Technology

Designed by Gert van Loo, Gertduino is the successor product to the popular Gertboard. It is Arduino-compatible and plugs directly onto a Raspberry Pi.

It features dual Atmel ATmega MCUs, -328 and -48, both of which can be programmed from the Raspberry Pi using the Arduino GUI or the GCC Atmel compiler.

Gertduino is feature-rich and includes a real-time clock (RTC), IRDA interface, RS-232 level converter and a battery backup power supply for the ATmega-48. The board is supplied with free to download software and tutorials, and is focused on education and development use.
