A new era for Arduino begins today
BCMI, the company founded by Massimo Banzi, David Cuartielles, David Mellis and Tom Igoe, co-founders of Arduino, announces that today it has acquired 100% ownership of Arduino AG, the corporation which owns all of the Arduino trademarks.
Following the acquisition, Mr. Massimo Banzi becomes the new Chairman and CTO of Arduino. Dr. Fabio Violante will be appointed as the new CEO, replacing Mr. Federico Musto who will pursue other opportunities outside Arduino AG.
“This is the beginning of a new era for Arduino in which we will strengthen and renew our commitment to open source hardware and software, while in parallel setting the company on a sound financial course of sustainable growth. Our vision remains to continue to enable anybody to innovate with electronics for a long time to come,” said Mr Banzi.
“I’m really excited and honoured to join Massimo, the co-founders and the amazing Arduino team as CEO. In the past two years we have worked very hard to get to this point. We envision a future in which Arduino will apply its winning recipe to democratize the Internet of Things for individuals, educators, professionals and businesses,” said Dr. Violante.

Finally! Hopefully Arduino will join hands with the esp8266 community to speed the learning with IoT. Keep it up Arduino!

I hope this means Arduino can finally get back to creating amazing things again.

relly good news,
but what about the arduino foundation now ?
and why there are still two completely different arduino websites (org and cc),
They still have different web and social media appearances, including various job advertisements.
this is kinda ridiculous …
July 29th, 2017 at 16:36:38
Congratulations on the good news. I hope you can quickly move to unify the Arduino brand identity (.org and .cc, Genuino) and pick up the lost momentum.
July 29th, 2017 at 21:16:26
This is amazing news. Thanks
July 30th, 2017 at 04:05:48
Great news. Best luck with the new adventure.
July 30th, 2017 at 14:23:45
So now the society can sell the Arduino board also in Italy?
July 30th, 2017 at 17:21:03
Change happens and congratulations are due. I hope you can swiftly link and merge the .cc and .org web sites, merge the product lines, and manufacture stock on items that are currently not available. Some of the products might need to go discontinued in order to announce and support newer and better. Please keep your loyal followers informed!

Really excellent news for all in the maker community. Well done for the great effort to restore normality. Richard

This is great news, and congratulations to all! This indeed is a new era in Arduino. Greetings from the Philippines!
July 31st, 2017 at 10:56:55
thanks for the kind words everybody 🙂 🙂
@Dirk67 This thing happened friday afternoon… can we get a week to get all of that done?
July 31st, 2017 at 15:24:42
Mr Musto’s intentions were just to monetize about Arduino and all the business around this platform. His exit from the group would just give me confirmation of this. Long live Arduino, long live Mr Banzi and company. Arduino is yours, at last

Great news! But what will hapen to ” Arduino STAR – OTTO “, can I purchase this new board very soon?
August 1st, 2017 at 14:11:17
This is going to be science fiction!
August 3rd, 2017 at 19:42:35
This is a wonderful development. The good guys finally won! I was deeply concerned that the previous leadership had abandoned the open source principles that is a core value of the Arduino community. Had things not changed I could have easily seen a boycott destroy the Arduino brand completely. Long live Arduino! Congratulations to Massimo and partners.

Congratulation Massimo Banzi,
I hope in a support for my last purchase Arduino primo e Primo Core………..for my recent project!!

There was a board called Arduino UNO Wifi. Would it be possible to restore data about it to arduino.cc? I’d need especially the circuit diagram and examples.
Has this board been discontinued?
August 27th, 2017 at 21:51:27
I also have a Arduino UNO WiFi developer edition.
Will this board be supported by Arduino.CC?
It locks to me a nice board. I purchased to a local distributer in Lisbon.
Thanks for your answer.
August 28th, 2017 at 01:56:45
Have the same problem using Arduino UNO WiFi board in project for school…desperately need support as it was till now with examples and libraryes.
August 28th, 2017 at 22:59:36
@massimo_banzi we are feeling generous.. We will give you two weeks. Lol.. ? enjoy the control, autonomy…..and get to work. ?

Congratulations to the core Arduino four founders. This was announced on my birthday, nice present for all.

Its quite sad that the boards that were available on arduino.org have vanished. They had extremely cool hardware like the Arduino STAR OTTO and other cool things one could never imagine being on arduino.cc
September 16th, 2017 at 20:35:20
It’s now been weeks I ask my reseller (officially listed on cc) when he will get products again since Arduinos have settled, he told me he wrote several times to Arduino.cc (and I trust him he’s honnest), he got no response, and can’t buy products completely in the fog. Arduino can you please communicate clearly on what’s going on ? New business model ? Just don’t let us and the resellers without any information.

I just bought an Arduino Starter Kit today, and all the .org help & guidance references are redirected to the new .cc; creating a huge disconnect in the provided book learning experience.
Is there a cross reference of some kind…. I haven’t made it past the IDE install part, and worry the rest of the book will be a similar continuity mess. Any guidance on how I should proceed here ???

Congrats on the start of a new era.
I recently purchased a 9 axis motion shield that shows to be from arduino.org.
I am new to the Arduino programing world and do not find any information about the board on Arduino.cc
specifically if there is a need to solder jumpers RESET to D3/4 or INT to D7/2 to work properly with an UNO. It looks like there might be a jumper in place between RESET and D4 currently.
Where can I go to get more information on the features of the board?
