FEZ (Fast and Easy!)

ROHS Icon Flag




Overview

FEZ is a powerful, user friendly, maker focused IoT board. This is not just another maker-board, the combination of its low-cost, beefy 32bit processor, Secure Wifi option, and the long list of supported software options, it is the rule-them-all board. (FEZ without wifi pictured) and FEZ with wifi $9.95 (MSRP) and $24.95 (MSRP) respectively. There are no additional licensing fees or other fees and all of the GHI Electronics development tools are provided free of charge. (FEZ without wifi pictured) and FEZ with wifi $9.95 and $24.95 respectively.

Flexible Software Options

FEZ works with several third party tools, like Arduino®, mbed®, MicroPython, Keil, GCC, FreeRTOS. The very popular STM32F401 microcontroller utilized on FEZ opens the door to almost every single maker and commercial platform. It is even fully supported with our TinyCLR OS.

Flexible Software Options

TinyCLR OS, for the .NET Developers

FEZ is completely supported to work with Visual Studio and be programmed in .NET, C# and Visual Basic. Full debugging capabilities (pause, step, inspect variables…) are standard with TinyCLR OS. All that magically works over a USB cable. No need to add any additional hardware.

Arduino-pin Compatible

TinyCLR OS - Hardware Options

The footprint and pinout of FEZ is made to be Arduino Compatible. This allows for the use of a wide range of plug-and-play accessories onto the FEZ.

Thanks to TinyCLR OS, these accessories are programmable through a modern language and programming environment.

Expansion Options

With thousands of sensors and control modules that can be used with any Arduino-pinout compatible board such as the official TinyCLR OS board - FEZ. We have hand-picked a few accessories available from companies supporting the maker communities.
