The two warring factions called Arduino are joining forces once again. Arduino LLC and Arduino sri, a breakaway outfit set up by Gianluca Martino, an Arduino co-founder, are to combine distribution of the boards beloved by hardware hackers everywhere, in a new company called Arduino Holdings.

    Once again land grabs for intellectual property and legal wrangles get in the way of furthering the underlying engineering.

    Its good to see that they are back under the same umbrella as the previous split only served to create a bunch of unnecessary confusion and hassle for those trying to sell their products.

    Presumably this means that the Genuino brand is no longer genuine and will fade away ?

    There's more info here

    I have an arduino and two pi's

    1:2 for pi ... with a third goal for pi after half-time ...about to order the new 64-bit model ;-)

      I need to get my radio enabled device in to a 20mm * 10mm box does the Pi fit? 3:2

        I used to buy Chinese copies of the pro mini in 5's or 10's.

        Never reckoned it a 'rip-off', just a small PCB, holding a '328, crystal and a few discretes. Think I got 'em for less than $3 each. None ever failed.

      If you can't use apostrophes properly you shan't have any.
