Seeed Studio has announced the release of yet another compact board. The new board, Seeeduino Nano, is quite similar to the Arduino Nano board, and fully compatible.
Another thing about the new board is that it has some different features. Seeeduino Nano comes with only one on-board Grove connector, but it can be expanded with the optional Grove shield adding 8 Grove connectors.
More precisely, the shield has 3 Grove digital connectors and 3 Grove analog connectors, as well as 1 Grove I2C connector, and 1 Grove UART connector.
Firstly, the Seeeduino Nano is built around Atmega328P 8-bit AVR microcontroller. This is the same as the Arduino Nano board, meaning you can use the same program code on both boards. There’s no specific Wiki for Seeeduino Nano, but it’s similar, albeit much smaller than the well-documented Seeeduino V4.2.
The board is available for just $6.90 and the Grove shield for the Arduino board is sold at $2.60 on the Seeeduino Studio online store. The price for the board is less than half of the price of the Arduino Nano board.
Although it is cheaper, this board does not lack in performance and functionality. The small size makes it easier to use in projects with space constraints. And with the help of Grove system, you can leverage hundreds of sensors and actuators, simply by plugging one in.
