I have played around with the Arduino and had fun with it. However I am accustomed to more powerful micro-controllers than the AVR CPU. So it was only a matter of time until I started to look for an ARM based board that offered Arduino shields. One board that caught my attention was the Olimexino-STM32 board.
It is a nice board that offers the following key features:
- STM32F103RB based ARM CPU
- SD-Card slot
- Mini USB port
- CAN bus
- Wide range of supply 9-30V
- Battery supply plug
The board is a derivative of the Maple board from LeafLabs and also supports their Arduino like IDE.
