Atmel’s holiday stocking stuffers

Atmel-based Arduino boards are prominently featured in a number of holiday 2013 top 10 gift lists from various publications, including the New York Times and Engadget.

As Wikipedia explains, Arduino is a single-board microcontroller designed to make the use of electronics in multidisciplinary projects (and prototyping) more accessible. The hardware consists of an open-source board designed around an 8-bit Atmel AVR microcontroller, or a 32-bit Atmel ARM. The software comprises a standard programming language compiler and a bootloader that executes on the microcontroller.

In addition to the wildly popular Arduino, Atmel’s MCUs are used to power a wide range of industrial and consumer products on the market. So let’s take a look at some of our favorite items which made Atmel’s Stocking Stuffers list this holiday season:
