The two warring factions called Arduino are joining forces once again. Arduino LLC and Arduino sri, a breakaway outfit set up by Gianluca Martino, an Arduino co-founder, are to combine distribution of the boards beloved by hardware hackers everywhere, in a new company called Arduino Holdings.
They are hiving off responsibility for maintaining the open source Arduino desktop IDE into a new not-for-profit Arduino Foundation.
Massimo Banzi, co-founder of Arduino LLC, said: "Today is one of the best days in Arduino history. This allows us to start a new course for Arduino made of constructive dialogue and disruptive innovation in the Education, Makers and IoT fields." ®
