In July a change in the direction of Arduino was announced. Arduino as a company was sold to another company that was governed by the founders of the Arduino Project. This represents a new path of projects and collaborations that will undoubtedly be positive for Arduino users and for the world of Free Hardware.
The first of these collaborations will be with the company ARM, company in charge of the platform of the same name that focuses on mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) and that lately is appearing on SBC boards.
The ARM company thus not only offers an inexpensive resource platform but also powerful And that is not only interesting for companies like Arduino but also for future projects that for the same price / code will have better results and more power.
ARM and Arduino will team up to create new Free Hardware products
For the moment, from the official Arduino websiteWe do not know the future of this alliance but we do know that this alliance exists and that work will be done to launch new products related to the Arduino philosophy and with ARM standards.
The relationship or alliance with ARM is not the first or the last alliance that Arduino will have in its new journey. The Arduino team ensures that they are working to have more alliances and continue working on their Project as they did before leaving the company behind Arduino.
Personally, I believe that the alliance with ARM is a very important step not only for the Arduino project but also for the platforms of these companies since such a union will make the apps work on Arduino or the Arduino programs can be controlled from our smartphone. without having a deep knowledge of programming.
