standard board has been the slowest selling platform, possibly because
you need to have the DuinoMite

to a keyboard, and TV, or VGA monitor.
this discount is priced so that you can purchase both the DuinoMite standard,
and the DuinoMite
I/O board (if you chose to do so),
at around the same price you would pay for a DuinoMite Mini board.

have had to drop many items that have been slow to move, or not moving
at all, and are basically getting out of micros, and general components,
as many of these can be purchased post free from overseas companies. It
is now a global market, and it is obvious that users will chase the best
prices on line that they can get.

products will be replacing a lot of existing compilers, programmers, development
boards, and is a good entry level for students and beginners introduction
into electronics and programming today, as there are already many practical
projects up and running. For examples, see:

Olimex UEXT MOD-IO Now working on the DuinoMite under MM-BASIC:
INFO: MOD-IO is stackable development board which add
analog and digital inputs and outputs to any of our development boards
with UEXT. If you work with any of our development boards with UEXT connector
and you need more digital and analog iniputs and outputs you can add these
by connecting MOD-IO to your development board. This board allow easy interfacing
to 4 relays, 4 optoisolated digital inputs, 4 analog inputs. MOD-IO is
stack-able and addressable, what does this means? these boards can plug
together so you can add as many as you want input and outputs! i.e. 8,
12 etc! MOD-IO have ATmega16 microcontroller and the firmware is available
Demo code, videos, includes change address, relay on,
relay off, and run relays on two boards all from Basic.
the Dynamite MaxiMite Compatible:
DuinoMite is a Maximite Compatible Basic computer, originally
designed by Geoff Graham, with additional features and Arduino like layout.
DuinoMite allows you to program in the BASIC language and have VGA and
Keyboard interface, so you can develop and write your code in Basic without
need of any computer. You can store your code on the SD-CARD and to execute
it on power up through autoexec.bas main code.
Pty Ltds Maximite-SM1
The Maximite is a small and versatile computer running a full featured
BASIC interpreter with 128K of working memory. It will work with a standard
VGA monitor and PC compatible keyboard and because the Maximite has its
own built in SD memory card and BASIC language you need nothing more to
start writing and running BASIC programs. The Maximite also has also 20
input/output lines which can be independently configured as analog inputs,
digital inputs or digital outputs. You can measure voltage, frequencies,
detect switch closure, etc and respond by turning on lights, closing relays,
etc - all under control of your BASIC program.
