FRITZING IS Out With A New Release Including ARDUINO YÚN Microcontroller !


Fritzing is an open-source hardware initiative that makes electronics accessible as a creative material for anyone. You can easily learn how to build a circuit for you project and also design your own PCB.
Last week, the Fritzing team announced the new release with a number of new parts, especially a number of popular microcontrollers, among which alsoArduino Yún:
We have upgraded to their latest version Qt5, which brings stability and speed improvements (especially for Mac OS X users). This also enables us to port fritzing to Android, iOS, etc.

Upgrade to Qt5

Fritzing is written on top the Qt cross-platform application framework. They have upgraded to their latest version Qt5, which brings stability and speed improvements (especially for Mac OS X users). This also enables to port fritzing to Android, iOS, etc. — that is, in theory. They still need to give that a try.

Major part family additions

This release brings a number of new parts, especially a number of popular microcontrollers, as the result of several collaboration efforts:

  1. ADI analog parts, which make use of split schematics and SPICE output, a new feature sponsored by Analog Devices we will write more about soon
  2. Intel Galileo, sponsored by Intel Education
  3. Arduino Yún, supported by Arduino
  4. Linino One, sponsored by doghunter
  5. ChipKIT WF32, MX4 and shields, thanks to Digilent (more to come)
  6. Spark Core, thanks to spark community member technobly
  7. Atlas Scientific sensors, thanks to Atlas Scientific
  8. more Raspberry Pi versions (A, B, B rev2)
  9. Teensy 3.0/3.1, because we love it
  10. several contributed parts, thanks to FrodeLillerud and others
In addition, there are  several new PCB shapes for Raspberry Pi, Intel Galileo, SparkCore that will make your boards look cooler. Here’s a snapshot of the Intel Galileo shield in action for the Data Monster:

Raspberry Pi Model B+ Revealed, comes with microSD card and USB 2 ports



This is a great news for the Raspberry Pi fans !!!

The Raspberry Pi Model B+ incorporates a number of enhancements and new features.
Improved power consumptionincreased connectivity and greater IO are among the improvements to this powerful, small and lightweight ARM based computer. 
The new board is priced the same as the model B at $35 in INR INR2,900.00 and is available starting Monday from many resellers. You can also order the new board online via the Raspberry Pi Foundation's two primary manufacturing partners: Element 14 and RS Components.
The new Model B+ is not a Raspberry Pi v2, the Foundation said in a blog post on 14th July 2014. Instead, it's a final revision to the original Raspberry Pi board that includes the same 512MB of RAM and the same Broadcom BCM2835 SoC as the B board.
For new stuff, the Model B+ now comes packed with 40 pins on the GPIO header keeping the same pinout mapping for the first 26 pins as the model B.
Anyone using the Raspberry Pi for a quick media center or playtime PC will welcome the two extra USB 2.0 ports on the B+ bringing the total to four. That's right: This revision eliminates the need for a USB hub just to use a mouse, keyboard, Wi-Fi dongle, and USB thumb drive at the same time.

The B+ also takes microSD cards instead of standard SDs. The new slot also has a push-push feel to it meaning it should behave more like the SD and microSD slots on other devices. That's a welcome change from the tight-fitting standard SD slot on the model B,  which felt more like "jam in your card and hope for the best."
Beyond port changes, the Raspberry Pi Foundation was able to reduce power consumption on the B+, and the audio circuit now has its own "low-noise" power supply. Finally, the model B+ has a new form factor and component layout that includes some fancy rounded corners.
To keep regular B board fans happy, the Raspberry Pi Foundation says Model B will stay in production as long as demand exists for the now older board. It's not clear if the model B will get a reduced price, but taking a quick scan of resellers online it doesn't look like it—at least not yet.
With its improved features, the Pi is now fit to enter into competition with other devices such as the Matrix TBS2910, Banana Pi, Android MK802 mini PC, APC 8750, Beaglebone Black, and SolidRun's Hummingboard. The latter shares the same ARM-based naked board with the Raspberry Pi. With regards to the processor, it has 1GHz ARMv7 while the Raspberry Pi only has 700MHz ARMv6.
