We are currently testing out some additional MCUs some comes with Ethernet so the inclusion of TCPIP stack could be included in the future scope. We also have received some request from Apple/Mac OSX users and as we currently don’t have access to any Apple/Mac OSX system and without any funding we cannot proceed on this. However, if we can get some substantial sponsorship/donation we will proceed on this as well as intensively continue our development.
Now as XDUINO-IDE is ready for download, these are the list of components you will find in XDUINO-IDE. This platform provides ease of compiling and uploading to the ARM Cortex-M3 devices by simply clicking the button on the main interface : -).
Main components includes:
What are you waiting for, you can signup to download it now from Download page.
XDUINO-IDE is ready for you to use with ARM Cortex-M3 STM32 boards. : -) Just fill out fill in the registration form on Download page.
Here is a screen shot:
XDUINO-IDE (v0.91) with integrated uploader tool is finally here. The current release will only be available for those who have bought an XDUINO board from us.
If you have bought a board from us and wants to download the IDE, please send us a note and we’ll get back to you asap.
XDUINO package with library files has been renamed XDUINO-lib.
There is also a minor upgrade for XDUINO-lib in the just released version 0.33
We have restocked XDuino boards, please check on our ‘hardware’ page to see what we have.
Yes, this is an official : -) announcement that XDUINO-IDE will be coming out within the next few days (not more than 1-2 days)….
Arduino platform has definitely enabled a lot of people including those non-tech savvy ones to enter into the electronics worlds. From the beauty of Arduino, now comes the challenge in making Arduino-like environment accessible across as many hardware platforms as possible. This would enable the simplicity and yet powerful Arduino platform to harvest on more powerful resources provided by different hardware to overcome hardware limitations based on different needs.
This approach will never be fully realized without contributors. So all contributions are welcome. Also, comments/suggestions will be highly appreciated. : -)
Let’s see what wonders we can create together…
Now, a little about me. My name is Ram, I am an independent IT consultant based in Bangkok and really like the Arduino project but it did not fit my needs so I started playing with ARM and manage to understand a bit about it then started this project. Feel free to contact me via the Contact us page : -)
Arduino-like library for ARM platform
This project has been started for making ARM processor boards (the platform which is much more powerful) be easily accessible just like Arduino. Nowadays you can find ARM boards easily.
This idea came about when running into limitation of resources provided by the ATMEGA processor and with short learning curve for Arduino platform.
This starting point focuses on ARM Cortex-M3 processor from STM32F10ret6 platform it runs at 72MHz processor 512KB of flash memory and 64KB of RAM, many several USART communication ports and a lot of GPIO pins.
Library for other boards will be added as the board gets within reach.

XDUINOA project from Thailand
Now if you can program an Arduino then you can easily program on Xduino on 32-bit platform of ARM Cortex-M3.
Want to use low-cost microcontroller with simple programming language and high performance? You can use Xduino + Arm Cortex-M3 STM board.
Xduino project has been started in order to bring Arduino-like environment to different hardware platforms.
(Note: Xduino supports all Arduino functions except analogReference()).
XDUINO IDE is available, so users will have to download the XDUINO-IDE and start enjoying the world of XDUINO on ARM Cortex-M3)

- Processing on the edge with single-chip FPGA-based solutions March 26, 2015The idea here is to perform 'processing on the edge' -- to analyze a video stream and to only transmit useful information like 'Send help -- a car just crashed at these GPS coordinates.'
- Teeny-Tiny GPAK4 mixed-signal FPGAs for embedded systems March 26, 2015For embedded designers who aren’t familiar with FPGAs, Silego's teeny-tiny mixed-signal GPAK devices might be just what they are looking for.
- The battle for the bottom March 25, 2015With the industry's laser focus on the IoT, wearables, or anything expected to run on rechargeable batteries, we're going to hear a lot more about MCU power consumption as a differentiator as vendors search for the bottom in MCU power consumption.
- Baking Pis in Africa (and talking about it at ESC Minneapolis) March 25, 2015Do you want to hear tall tales of rafting the Nile and driving 8,000 miles from Nairobi to Johannesburg and back in the name of product testing?
- BADASS Display: It's alive! It's alive! March 25, 2015When Max powers one of his projects up for the first time, it's not unusual for sparks and smoke and strange sounds to ensue. In this case, everything worked first time (he's still recovering from the shock).
- TI adds 32-bit family to familiar MCU series March 24, 2015TI's new ARM Cortex-M4F-based MCU is a higher performance alternative to traditional the 16-bit MSP430 and a lower power and feature-rich alternative to the ARM Cortex-M0.
- Multicore MCUs add GbE, audio March 24, 2015Multiple cores bring blazing speed to low-cost MCUs for Ethernet connectivity and audio applications.
- MCUs leverage sub-threshold voltage tech March 24, 2015Based on the same subthreshold voltage technology used in its ARM-based Apollo Cortex-based processors, Ambiq's real-time clock family brings its low power benefits to any MCU-based design.
- Amazon drones to take off but FAA clips wings March 24, 2015Amazon received an experimental airworthiness certificate from the FAA, but is it a breakthrough?. Not so much. Here's why Amazon Prime Air's dream of package delivery via drones is still a long shot.
- Sensor hubs get tiny motion module March 24, 2015To make nine axis sensor hub capabilities available for many embedded IoT apps, Microchip has developed a coin cell sized module that can fit onto any space constrained design.
