Announcing the DigiX!
We are very excited to announce the start of our second Kickstarter project and the unveiling of our newest product - the DigiX!
The DigiX aims to be the ultimate Arduino Development Board with onboard WiFi and wireless mesh networking. While the Digispark was built to be cheap and small, this board is built to handle any project you can think of! The DigiX has a 32-bit 84 MHz MCU, embedded low power Wi-Fi (b/g/n) and mesh networking, 99 usable i/o pins, audio output, USB on the go support, and is 100% compatible with anything that works with the Arduino Due - no adapters, code changes, or special software needed! Full details, pinouts, etc on the Kickstarter page linked below.
You can back the DigiX on Kickstarter now - check it out now with this link: http://digistu.mp/ks-digix or click on the widget below.
Kickstarter rules only allow us to offer rewards in single quantities - but all backers will be able to add additional units to ship with their rewards as soon the project ends!
We hope you'll help us bring this project to reality and reserve yours today! In addition we'd really appreciate it if people would help us spread the word - we've never used paid PR and never will - we depend on happy customers to help us get the word out!
Here are some sites that have featured similar projects or the Digispark in the past - if you have a moment to let a few of them know about the DigiX, we'd appreciate it!
Here are a few other ways you can help spread the word as well:
If we can really get some momentum going then we'd love to be forced to add some stretch goals for even more features!
Thank you all for your support - Digistump would not exist without our wonderful customers, backers, and fans!

Another new product is here!
We're pressed for time right now, but wanted to get this announced so here is the description:
The Real Time Clock Shield Kit allows you to build a Digispark shield which connects a DS1307 Real Time Clock to the Digispark development board. The DS1307 communicates with the Digispark over the I2C bus. The Real Time Clock Shield can be used to keep accurate time even after the device is powered off. This shield allows the Digispark to be used to make clocks, alarms, or add time and date data to any project.
We've already made a great quick alarm clock with this, and are thinking of all the sprinkler system, lighting, etc projects we could use it in!
You can buy the kit here: http://digistump.com/products/47
And the PCB here: http://digistump.com/products/46
The wiki page can be found here: http://digistump.com/wiki/digispark/tutorials/rtc
We're waiting on approval for our next Kickstarter project - so stay tuned for the big news!

We pleased to announce our two newest products!
The Nunchuck Shield for the Digispark - which allows you to attach a Nintendo Wii Nunchuck to your Digispark and use the accelerometer, analog stick, and buttons for your project (robot control!) or send the data to the computer over USB. With the included example you can even use it as a USB joystick!
We've produced these in pretty limited quantities so get them while they last - and we'll make a bunch more if they are popular!
Due to the limited quantity we don't have the raw PCB available separately right now, but will as soon as we get more boards in stock.
Get it now: http://digistump.com/products/45
Project of the Day!
The project of the day (a shameless plug perhaps, but we think it is pretty cool!) is using your Nunchuck as a joystick. The newest software release has all the required libraries and includes this code example:
