In July, the original Arduino founders regained full control of Arduino as a company. Then the search was on for the right technology partner.
Massimo Banzi, Arduino co-inventor, writes:
“ARM recognized independence as a core value of Arduino. This was very important for us, as it meant full understanding of our need to work with multiple silicon vendors and architectures as long as they make sense for Arduino—without any lock-in with the ARM architecture.”
Banzi says Arduino will continue to work with all technology vendors and architectures moving forward.
“We stay independent; we stay open, and we still provide the most loved microcontroller development platform that has changed the lives of so many people around the world,” says Banzi.
