· Weighs only 34-grams
Arduino 101 Description
Arduino breaks it convention by replacing ATmega Microcontroller with Intel Curie Microcontroller and it allows Arduino 101 stand out of the entire Arduino line. Most of the Arduino boards feature 16KB clock speed but it is nice to see a huge shift i.e. 32KB clock speed.
Arduino 101 is fast, efficient and better in terms of memory and speed. The board is capable of recognizing gestures. It also features a gyroscope as well as an accelerometer. It also makes things convenient for the programmers by allowing them use their phones in order to control their projects. The Bluetooth connectivity helps you link the phone with the board. It is equally fruitful for both, learners as well as experienced developers.
