Weeno and Background

Weeno is grounded in Wiring and Arduino. Weeno uses a very clear, easy-to-use syntax and basic pin to memory mapping either utilized or envisioned by Hernando Barragán in Wiring--and carried on by the fine programming work done in Arduino. `

Weeno departs from Wiring and Arduino. Weeno has no particular hardware requirements. Instead, Weeno is a library-only framework. The Weeno library is a built to support the full flavours of micro-controllers offered by the various silicon firms, from A(tmel) to Z(ylog). Weeno will support the Atmel ATMega8 found in Wiring and Arduino as well as many other modern and powerful Atmel chips, for example AT90USB1287. However, the story goes on. Weeno will not only support Atmel AVR but also Freescale HCS08, Microchip, Silab C8051, TI MSP-430 at points in the future. Following, Weeno is an umbrella of various sub-sets including AVR-Weeno, ARM-Weeno, Free-Weeno, MSP-Weeno, 8051-Weeno, etc. `

    Weeno and Firmware Standards

    Wiring and Arduino have a strong following in academic institutions and Do It Yourself (DIY) projects. Jointly, the projects' greatest strength is the potential for standardization. The advantages of a standard in hardware is massive: vendor-neutral pricing, fast development time, reliable code, reuse of code, familiarity and trust of code. The ARM family of micro-controllers are known to offer these importance economic and management practices. Overall, standardization is know to positively impact time, cost and quality. Weeno was built upon these real-world expectations. `

    With no particular hardware requirements, Weeno uses the established demo or evaluation boards offered by the standards firms, whether the newer inexpensive ($20 and less) USB-attached devices (from Atmel, Silabs, and TI respectively) or the full-fledged JTAG boards from the various firms. `
