Love the Netduino but not a big fan of pulling out the ol' soldering iron when it comes to prototyping with it? The Netduino Go Starter Kit gives users the ability to interface Godbus modules to the Go for quick and easy plug-and-play projects.
The Netduino Go Starter Kit is a modular system designed to work with plug and play Netduino GoBus modules. This starter kit even comes with 3 of these modules (RGB LED, potentiometer, & push button) and a Shield base. There are also other kinds of interesting modules available out there like Touchscreens, relays, & Piezo buzzers.
Alongside the Netduino Go, Secret Labs introduces a very cool accessory. It's called the Shield Base. You plug it into your Netduino Go and it provides you with the latest Arduino pinout, 6 PWMs, 6 ADCs, and a handful of GPIOs. To use it, you just create InputPorts, AnalogInputs, etc. using the standard NETMF classes.
The Netduino Shield Base is in early beta firmware so that Secret Labs can get wide feedback on this new virtualization technology. And to say thank you for beta testing the Shield Base, they've temporarily upgraded its 128KB-flash MCU to a full-blown 512KB-flash 120MHz Cortex-M3 microcontroller. You can connect it to power and a USB-TTL serial cable and use it as a traditional Netduino if you'd like as well -- while enjoying its 3 serial ports and other new enhancements. Both the Netduino Go and the Shield Base run production versions of .NET MF 4.2 QFE1 (RTM).
