“Nabd” translates to “Heartbeat” in Arabic. Nabd is Remal’s version of the Arduino Uno, a classic and widely used development board. It is based on the ATMega328p, just like the Arduino Uno. In fact, it shares the same layout as the Uno, making it compatible with all shields that support the Uno. It’s an easy board for everyone to get started with due to the simplicity of the Arduino IDE and the wealth of libraries and tutorials available online.
However, we decided to improve and refine the board. Making it better, cheaper, and more modern (goodbye USB-B and DC barrel!)
Nabd represents the foundation for any student, hobbyist, or engineer looking to get into the world of embedded systems. It all starts with Nabd, the heartbeat that pumps the user with knowledge and hopefully passion into working with embedded systems and IoT devices!
Nabd is our version of the Arduino Uno. Since the Arduino Uno (like all Arduino boards) is open-source, it means anyone can make their own version of it. We made Nabd to fit our purposes and be more capable than the original Uno. Here are the key differences between Nabd and the original Arduino Uno:
