Arduino and Genuino boards
For Arduino presentations are not needed, but now what is Genuino?
It is simply the open-source Arduino project made available globally, through alliances with leading manufacturers of the local market in Asia, Europe, South America, Canada and Africa. Genuino was created by co-founder Massimo Banzi, David Cuartielles, Tom Igoe and David Mellis; It is just a brand used for all boards and products sold outside of the United States. The Genuino label certifies the authenticity of Genuino boards in line with the open hardware and open-source philosophy that has always distinguished the values of Arduino.
All right! but to us what changes?
Nothing! The Genuino and Arduino boards share the same components, the same characteristics and the same quality of production. They are in effect the same boards, distributed under a different brand. Depending on the area of the world in which we live we will be able to buy both – just be outside the USA – or only Arduino in the USA; in this new category you will find the Genuino and Arduino boards available on makerZONE, and many others will be added shortly.
