Arduino Compatible: Seeeduino Cloud

Before you guys go crazy over how this is not SBC but a microcontroller instead, we felt that it was appropriate to include it into the list as it is a microcontroller that is a Linux-ready SBC with full Arduino compatibility.

  • Seeeduino Cloud is a microcontroller board based on Dragino WiFi IoT module HE and ATmega32u4. HE is a high performance, low cost 150M, 2.4G WiFi module which means “core” in Chinese and with an Open Source OpenWrt system inside.
  • Seeeduino Cloud is also 100% compatible with Grove, shield and IDEs(Arduino IDE 1.5.3 and later).
  • Except for the normal interface of Arduino, Seeeduino Cloud has built-in Ethernet and WiFi support, a USB-A port which makes it very suitable for those prototype design that needs network connection and mass storage. It is also a good idea to make Seeeduino Cloud to an IoT gateway.
  • Historically, interfacing Arduino with complex web services has been quite a challenge due to the limited memory available. Web services tend to use verbose text-based formats like XML that require quite a lot of ram to parse. On the Cloud, you can use the Yun Bridge library which delegates all network connections and processing of HTTP transactions to the Linux machine.

Honorable Mention: Seeeduino Mega

Why did we include this microcontroller? Well, even though it is based around microcontrollers instead of a microprocessor, it has shared characteristics as the Raspberry Pi 4 in budget hardware and STEM education.

  • While both boards can control electronics attached to their pins, the Pi is also capable of being used as a full desktop computer but the Arduino is easier to use when building electronic prototypes, and also to swap out for a new microcontroller in the final product. So do pick which microcontroller or SBC that suits your project the most!
  • The Seeeduino Mega is a powerful micro-controller derived from Arduino Mega. It features ATmega2560 processor which brings a large number of I/O pins, as much as 70 digital I/O, 16 analog inputs, 14 PWM, and 4 hardware serial ports.
  • Compared to Arduino Mega, we shrunk the volume of Arduino Mega by at least 30% and made it 100% compatible with Seeed Shield products. And as a member of Seeeduino series, Seeeduino Mega inherits deliberate details from Seeeduino, like selectable operating voltage(3.3V/5V), right angle reset button, and so on.
  • If you are looking to create robotic projects or you want something for a 3D printer, the Seeeduino Mega will be a handy replacement to Raspberry Pi even though it is based on a microcontroller and not a microprocessor.
