Arduino is an open source hardware and software form factor that is easy to use and is geared toward the maker space and professional engineers. Analog Devices has created a variety of Arduino compatible shields.
The EVAL-ADICUP360 combines the best of two technologies of Arduino and PMOD in a standardized form factor board. This board uses the ADuCM360 chip which is an ARM Cortex-M3 Processor plus has dual 24-bit sigma delta converters. With a variety of PMOD daughter boards and Arduino compatible shields the EVAL-ADICUP360 is extremely flexible and powerful development tool for Makers and professional engineers.
PMOD TM by Digilient offers a universal form factor of 6,8 and 12 pin connectors and communication protocols that Analog Devices has utilized in many of their boards to make them applicable to a wide range of controller and daughter boards
