The Io:duino is designed for DIY model railroading,
combining the power of NMRAnet and open-source tools.
Fully Arduino-compatible, Io:duino makes it easy to design your own digital
controls, for layout automation, lighting effects, even controlling your trains via DC or DCC.*
Even better, Io:duino’s built-in Controller
Area Network (CAN) support makes it a great tool for hacking your automobile, or for home
Io:duino is built around the Atmel AT90CAN128
processor, whose 128KB of program space, 4KB of SRAM, and 4KB of EEPROM are just the icing on the cake. This processor has
built-in hardware support for the CAN and NMRAnet networking protocols, without sacrificing any of the digital I/O
Arduino compatibility means you have immediate access to hundreds of add-ons
called shields, empowering you start building without any additional tools. And it’s easy to write and upload your own
custom software over USB.
Like all Railstars products, Io:duino includes a No-
