Orangepip gives a zest for Making!

A new, colourful way to code

Orangepip provides a colourful introduction to coding and prototyping – including the popular Arduino ATmega microcontrollers, these boards give young programmers a zest for learning!

Based on Arduino Boards

The two Orangepip boards are similar to the Arduino Uno and Mega, using the same microcontrollers, GPIO pins, serial ports and 16MHz oscillator, and compatible with most Uno and Mega shields.

Compatible with Arduino IDE

But what software can be used with the Orangepip? No need to worry. Both the Mega2560 and Kona328 are fully compatible with Arduino IDE, which runs on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

What is Orangepip?

See your projects grow with OrangePip – a distinctive new range of open source boards which offer a colourful introduction to coding and prototyping. Based on the ATmega2560 and ATmega328 microcontrollers, the OrangePip boards are fully compatible with Arduino shields, sensors, accessories and software – giving users access to the global Arduino community of makers and projects.

The boards themselves are rich with features, including 16MHz oscillator, ATmega16u2 for serial conversion, 14 digital GPIO I/O pins (Kona328) and 54 I/O pins (Mega2560), quick reset buttons and machine screw holes. The high performance ATmega 8-bit AVR RISC-based microcontrollers give OrangePip users enough power and memory to store and run multiple lines of complex code – the Kona328 being designed for beginners and Mega2560 for intermediate users.
