The MAXREFDES72#, a Pmod-to-Arduino adapter which enables rapid prototyping, has been released by Maxim Integrated Products. Allowing boards with Pmod connections to plug into any Arduino-compatible MCU platforms, the adapter is suitable for creating IoT designs.
The MAXREFDES72# also allows for convenient accessibility to a broader range of digital processors and applications. 15 single function peripheral modules and 13 reference design boards with Pmod connectors are offered by Maxim and are compatible with any Arduino-compatible development board.
“The real world is analog, and Maxim’s collection of Pmod-compatible peripheral modules has enabled rapid prototyping of real world interfaces with FPGAs,” said Greg Steiert, Senior Member of Technical Staff, Maxim Integrated. “This reference design extends that same rapid prototyping ability to the vast array of low-cost Arduino-compatible microcontroller development boards.”
“Arduino represents an important and rapidly-expanding ecosystem of ARM developers,” said Dominic Pajak, Embedded Strategist, ARM. “It’s great to see high-quality sensor components from Maxim adding to the diversity and choice available to system developers focused on driving innovation around connected devices and services for the Internet of Things.”
