Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on a simplified hardware and software management system. Arduino provides many boards for every design target, and one of its latest boards is Portenta for the industrial market. At its heart is STMicroelectronics’ microcontroller, with a dual-core Cortex-M7 and Cortex-M4 on the chip.
In this video interview with EE Times Europe, Fabio Violante, CEO of Arduino, discusses the value and role of open source as well as the increased interactions between children and technology. “There’s a lot of talking about open source, but not all the people understand very well what open source means, in many cases, it is sort of a synonymous with free so people just misinterpret the this concept,” Violante said.
