What happens to electronic components at cryogenic temperatures? That’s the main question Mikail tried to answer with his experiment using liquid nitrogen and Arduino: 65.3Mhz@-196°C. Check the video below to see the magic:

    i think that is a fake one or a counterfeit product 😀

    I know that this is in fact a counterfeit. The board is too blue, and a real arduino has a gold voltage regulator. This one is green. No wonder this experiment worked; the board probably was lousy with short circuits!

    Please remove it from blog.

    @Testato: Why you think it is fake? If you read full linked article, it describes in very detail all the issues which needed to be fixed for it to work.

    I doesn´t look fake though

    You could achieve much higher clock rates if you wouldn’t cool the silicon down so much.
