Input. Output:
Netduino combines 22 GPIOs with SPI, I2C, 4 UARTs (1 RTS/CTS), 6 PWM and 6 ADC channels.

Code. Debug. Repeat:
.NET Micro Framework combines the ease of high-level coding and the raw features of microcontrollers. Enjoy event-based programming, multi-threading, line-by-line debugging, breakpoints and more.

Very expandable.
: 3rd-party accessories offer pre-built functionality like GPS location, servo control and battery power.

Netduino is also pin-compatible with Arduino shields. 3rd-party drivers are required for some Arduino shields.
