Title: Genuino Brand
Post by: mastrolinux on Jun 20, 2015, 06:41 am
Genuino is Arduino.cc's sister-brand created by Arduino co-founders Massimo Banzi, David
Cuartielles, Tom Igoe, and David Mellis, the Arduino.cc team and community.
This brand is used for boards and products sold outside the US.

The Genuino brand certifies the authenticity of boards and products in line with the philosophy
of open-hardware and open-source that has always characterized the values of Arduino.

Genuino makes the Arduino open-source project available worldwide through alliances with
with local market-leading manufacturers in Asia, Europe, South America, Canada and Africa.


More info very soon on our Genuino Brand Page (http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/GenuinoBrand)

I recently got one of these ZIF devevopment modules for 40-pin AVR,
mini-dev-board (http://www.dx.com/p/mini-development-board-for-avr-atmega-16-150191#.VZc-nrnKPue)

I'd purely love something like that for 28-pin 328P breakout, but I don't need the power plug and regulator, just extra 5V and GND pins.

Could you sell both ZIF and matching socket versions populated and bare boards in multi-packs?
Sell the chips and a programmer, or integrate an ATtiny programmer into the ZIF board maybe?
And then you have the full hardware set for a Minty Boost Kit; buy this. do that......
and I will have my ZIF 328P dev board with standalone target boards available.

Could someone tell me if what I understood is correct?

Basically, Genuino is Arduino in the rest of the world due to Arduino Srl? And in the USA it is known as Arduino?

Most of us learned that Arduino is open boards, software and support on this site.
What we buy to support all of that should not go to boards alone.

I can get boards all over.

What pays for Arduino IDE development, Arduino web site and support? Still Lady Ada. Sparkfun, etc?

Was there a time when money from a store went to the sneaky partner instead of the group effort?

Most of us learned that Arduino is open boards, software and support on this site
For Avr micro-controler, software and IDE until 1.05 are a Wiring Project creation (Hernado Barragan).
Have a look on the Arduino IDE avr files you will find  many names like wiring.c, wiring_analog.c, wiring_digital.c, wiring_pulse.c, wiring_shift.c, Winterrupts.c and so on...

ARM:
For ARM (cortex M3 (DUE) and cortex M0 (Zero), software and IDE> 1.5 are only an Arduino creation (eventually with Atmel help for software).
For ARM the only source of support are Arduino and Atmel website.
Notice that Atmel has  soon Xplained boards based on SAMD20 and SAMD21.
Notice that  Arduino LCC Zero board schematic is not signed by Arduino LLC but by Atmel and board are manufactured in Europe  (by Atmel or under Atmel responsabily).

AVR :
For avr  Arduino website is the main source of support, but it is not alone.
Wiring site  www.wiring.org.co (http://www.wiring.org.co) is not very active but it is not dead.
Notice that Avr Wiring code is often more recent that Arduino avr code.

I am saying that we understood Arduino to be a total package and that by buying the boards, all were supported. The actions of the board making partner betrayed that. Even support needs support.

Not unexpected the way the products are being rebranded.

I wish .cc would sort out what products they intend to sell. It looks as though the GPRS shield and Starter Kit are now .org products. Still, it gives .cc the opportunity to revise the design and take on board the criticism of those items...

I'm anxious to see the result of the court cases in USA and Italy. I'm certainly rooting for Arduino LLC (arduino.cc) to get the Arduino name recognition world-wide. I made that clear a while back: http://www.amazon.com/review/R3PXVMNU7Z7049/ref=cm_cr_dp_title?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00US73ZIO&channel=detail-glance&nodeID=541966&store=pc (http://www.amazon.com/review/R3PXVMNU7Z7049/ref=cm_cr_dp_title?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00US73ZIO&channel=detail-glance&nodeID=541966&store=pc)

Here's the link: http://hackaday.com/2015/07/23/hackaday-interviews-federico-musto-of-arduino-srl/ (http://hackaday.com/2015/07/23/hackaday-interviews-federico-musto-of-arduino-srl/)

What a mess. I still think Gianluca Martino deceptively and with less-than-perfectly-honorable intentions went behind the whole team's back, but Arduino SRL does have some really cool products. I'm not Hackaday, so I don't have to be neutral. I still want both companies to succeed and sell cool and useful products, but I really also hope that Arduino SRL does it under another name.....

In other words, when this is all said and done, I want there to be one Arduino....owned by the founding majority (Arduino LLC, who really owns the most significant portion of the product lines--namely, the firmware, codebase, and community support and networking), and I want Arduino SRL to continue as a company...under some other name.

One more time there is no question of constituting a people's court to designate a culprit.
 It is just a matter of having independent information from both parts.

 This enabled me to discover that:
 "Among --other sources of money, [Daniela Antonietti] had mortgaged her house to pay for a professional reflow oven"
This is a sign of a strong personal involvement in the Arduino project that deserves respect.

 But this does not turn Musto into an angel.

finally the first "Genuio" Boards arrived in Europe (Germany)

(manufactured by Seeed Studio ?)
Title: Re: Genuino Brand
Post by: q2dg on Oct 13, 2015, 04:33 am
Why only three boards (UNO, Micro and Mega) has changed its name to Genuino? Why other boards (Yun, Due, Zero...) still are named Arduino?
What a mess...
Title: Re: Genuino Brand
Post by: 68tjs on Oct 13, 2015, 02:57 pm
It is very difficult to get reliable information.
The conflict over the ownership of the Arduino brand does not help to see clearly.

Arduino brand: seems to belong
- USA:    --> Arduino LLC
- Europe (and rest of the world?)   --> Arduino SRL

To have cards manufactured under  Genuino brand it is necessary to find  a manufacturer who accept to manufacture they.
For a manufacturer agrees to manufacture boards, he must be able to make money with, and therefore it is necessary that the cards have a future.

DUE
Does this board has a future?

Zero:
The same board is available in two different name: Zero and M0-pro.
Both versions were realized with "active" help of Atmel, indeed it is Atmel  who does the two  designs.

The distribution of sales  appears to be:
- USA: only Atmel Zero, boards manufactured in Europe directly by Atmel
- Rest of world: only Atmel M0-pro, boards manufactured in Europe by Arduino  SRL
My understanding is that Atmel does not want a conflict between Arduino jeopardize the sale of "his" product.
IMHO it is Atmel who imposed the distribution area of sales between Zero and M0-pro


Yun:
It is even less clear.
It seems, but maybe I'm wrong, that the most important part of Yun have been designed by Musso (Arduino SRL).
What is the real status of the card? Very hard to say.
All Arduino boards are cloned by Chinese except Yun -> bizarre isn't it

Delicate point:
Independently of Yun  status, Arduino SRL will realise in November, a new version of Yun ( Arduino Industrial 1001) and an improved version (Arduino Tian) with ARM 32 bits SAMD21 instead of avr 8 bits .
Which manufacturer will agree to start a new production line  with a product that may be obsolete ?

To be attractive Arduino LLC must release rapidly new products, old products are the past.

Now it is not possible to make an announcement and get out the product two years later.
The product should be available at most two months after the announcement.
Title: Re: Genuino Brand
Post by: Dirk67 on Oct 13, 2015, 03:37 pm

surely NO,
to be attractive arduino LLC must give support to the new products (e.g. zero and wifi-101)
almost one and a half year ago this new products were announced,
and now, so much time later, still almost no standard-library is working with the zero without any conflict or necessary tweaks...

Great to see this wonderful product becoming available world wide!
But it isn't!!  All of the major electronics suppliers, who provide devices for the UK are stocking the "Arduino" not the "Genuino" .....  The only conclusion that can be drawn from what is being said is that the boards they are selling are coming from Arduino SRL.  A company that I have no desire to support given their immoral behavior and absolute abuse of the name.

The electronics suppliers have no incentive to stock "Genuino" because apart from people digging into the details of this fiasco, nobody knows what the bloody hell a Genuino is!!! and everybody knows what an Arduino is or at least what it should be.  Most people are totally unaware of the legal wrangle. And are therefore being duped by Arduino SRL.

I would rather be supporting Arduino LLC and ensuring that they get the royalty payment that they should be getting. Especially given that they get none from those thieves at Arduino SRL.  But if none of the major UK suppliers are listing the Genuino as a product line then that is near to impossible here.

The "Genuino"  brand is just a very very bad idea!  It would have been all well and good to re-brand and name them "Genuine Arduino" but trying to create a cute Genuino name is falling flat and is just entirely confusing all the people new to this. Like Me!!  I had to spend days trying to unpick this mess so that I could understand what it was I wanted to buy and use. And now I know what I should be buying I can't get it in the UK.. NOT A GOOD SITUATION!

You're absolutely right Foz.
Having two names based on geographical location is confusing, especially as we are so globalized now. I think the Arduino LLC should have changed their name world-wide to Genuino - especially in the US, where the Arduino brand would then be absent. Specifically Arduino LLC would keep the right to Arduino in America, but all of the boards would be branded Genuino.  It would surely hasten the realization that Genuino is really arduino.cc (LLC), and this realization would spread through this and other international communities rapidly.

The brand 'Arduino' would become like ... Sublime (with Rome).

Absolutely... That's a very good point Chris.  It just seems such a shame that genuine originators designers are losing royalties to someone who at the end of the day was and is just a manufacturer with little merit, apart from the fact he was at one time able to make them relatively cheaply.

I do find the arduino.org website very offensive. Especially the way they try to make out that they are base for the Arduino community, which is clearly not true.

Don't forget :

for software arduino is a fork of Wiring.

for hardware all IC manufacturers furnish for free to their custumers all needed help and demoboards.

Zero  and M0-pro are developed by Atmel.
Zero is manufactured for Arduino.lcc by Atmel in Italy.
Galileo and Edison are developped and manufactured byIntel.

Now it seems that Arduino is only IDE.

They are either complete different products (depends on what you are looking for), or it's the other way around and some arduino.org products are the same as the genuine Arduino products (guess where that name they were forced to adopt, came from).

I think there was a blog post or similar when Genuino was announced talking localized production. If it's all automated, you'd expect it to be pretty good.

Well, if I want to buy a Lilypad or an Esplora I won't be able to do it if I am not buying inside US?! Well that's such a bummer...it leaves loyal customers outside US without nice projects to develop if wanted to do it with their reliable brand...somebody can help clarify this? Thanks! Happy DIYing to everyone!
No. the current state of the Arduino and Genuino brands is currently undefined.

This should resolve itself nicely within  few months when the lawsuit settlement is finalized. The "Arduino Holding" company will be the single worldwide point of contact for wholesale distribution of all Arduino products. I think that means that you will be able to get them from a distributor or a local dealer. See:

I am interested in using the "Arduino Community Logo". As I am in NZ should it say "Genuino Community Logo"

I am unclear as to legal usage of the community logo. can I put it on a sticker printing site for members to order - I am unclear where the definition of product begins and ends.

This website is used and run by unpaid volunteers who have no business connection to Arduino.

Here is a page about the community logo (https://www.arduino.cc/en/Trademark/CommunityLogo).

Before arduino.cc website belonged to " Arduino SA ", Chiasso Switzerland.
" Arduino SA " belonged to only one Mr BANZI.
Now " Arduino SA " has been renamed " BCMI Labs SA " and stop to refer to Arduino.
BCMI Labs SA still belongs to the only one M BANZI.

Now the two websites arduino.cc and arduino.org belong to Arduino AG.
The official Registrant and Administrator is now F MUSSO.

Arduino AG

The arduino nebula is very complicated but it is better  to create companies in Switzerland rather in tax paradises country (Bahamas, Panama, Singapore, etc ...).

hello

I have followed the Arduino Saga for many years and I have a bad feeling that F. Musto is going to be a thorn in the Arduino community for a long time.

Many boards are being found to lack the necessary documentation to truly be called and labeled "open hardware".

I have a significant investment in Arduino boards and accessory.
I do not want to find that it is all worthless.

I have all ready come to the conclusion that the Arduino Yun and Arduino Tian are both no longer viable for being used in any projects. Any other Arduino boards which have doghunter and/or linino on the backside are also being considered no longer viable.

I am afraid to say it, but I think that Arduino needs to start all over again with the basic boards and IDE. rebuild the Arduino Community and put time and distance between the Phoenix Arduino and the past many years.

Arduino Phoenix raising from the ashes of the old Arduino.
Sounds like a good name for a new board.
Arduino Phoenix.

@artisticforge

You seem to have a bee in your bonnet about most things Arduino.

As far as the community I see no need to re-build as it is doing quite nicely and expanding quite well into some areas that were slightly neglected eg. the EDU side is doing quite well and gathering a lot of traction especially with the CREATE and Chromebook side of things.

From my own POV I think it will take time for the dust to settle as nobody really walks away from such a mess unscathed. But looking on the bright side I can only see good things ahead.

Nobody actually knows the full details of the re-merger so anything we say is pure speculation and if you want to speculate nothing but bad that is your view and you are welcome to it. It is not my view.

Your online persona gives off a very similar one to another user who had almost identical views "Adafruit" Are you two linked ? eg sock puppet etc. ? (honest question BTW)

As far as the YUN...Apart from the crappy soldering on the USB connectors mine has worked pretty flawless and was even better after I upgraded it. Only reason its not in use is the faulty connector (from new) but then again it does say ORG on the back LOL. I would love to get a CC one to compare the quality but funds don't run to it right now.

Have had the good fortune to work with some of the backroom and I have to say I am exceptionally impressed with what they do and how well they do it. And NO I am not associated with them nor do I get paid by them. I am simply here to give back where I can...

CC has always given me a positive vibe when I have dealt with them and I am putting ORG as water under the bridge.

You should too.

There is only one of me. I have no idea who "Adafruit" maybe on this forums. I would assume that it would be someone associated with the adafruit web site and business.

Arduino still has not hit the bottom yet. Many retail stores just no longer carry Arduino products. Radio Shack retail store are basically gone. The Mircocenter.com retail stores sell Arduino clones and knockoffs.
Frys.com retail stores are not much better. Most are either Grove or SeeedStudio. I do have one Robotale board which is a poor Chinese clone.

I have been trying for several weeks to get an answer concerning the CTC-101 kit.
Thunderous silence is the response.

Intel has all but left the Arduino community. The Arduino 101 is End-of-Life. Edison and Galileo never had much of a following.

The Arduino Yun & Tian are both tainted boards given the involvement of Doghunter and Linino.
Those two board names should be killed off as soon as possible.

Replace with the Arduino Phoenix.

The recovery of Arduino is going to take a long long time.

@artisticforge, I am already 65 years old and, like everyone else on the planet, I am dying one day at a time.

If you are in the unfortunate situation of dying more quickly that the rest of us at least you can be thankful that you will not be around to hear us say "I told you so" when we discover that the Arduino system is not as dead as you forecast.

On the other hand (to end on an upbeat note) it would only take you a few days to write a short tutorial about something that might be helpful for a newbie, and hopefully your life expectancy will extend that far.

It is your choice between feeling sorry for yourself or deciding to enjoy life.


I certainly won't be in the least bit bothered if I die. I came to terms with that very many years ago.

I have to totally disagree with you. Arduino.cc went through some growing pains a few years back but the community - represented by this forum - is strong. Yes, brick & mortar retail stores like Radio Shack, Fry's, and Sears are a dying breed, replaced by e-commerce sites and internet stores. That, my friend, is what progress must be.

Annual product models come and go, just like lady's fashions, but the interest in them thrives and the newer models such as the MKR1000 offer much more than the originals.

There's a great and marvelous future.
