10M Arduino Uno boards sold worldwide

Dec. 9, 2021

Arduino reports it has sold 10 million Uno boards. Launched in 2010, Uno was born five years earlier as the Arduino project in a design school in Ivrea to help design students create projects. Since then, it gained popularity in the maker movement.

“Some of the projects are funny, others are world-changing, and a huge number of these projects have an Arduino Uno at their core,” says co-founder Massimo Banzi. “Our values are still the same; we make tools that empower people, help them create whatever they want while enjoying the process, and to make technology accessible. We now make higher performance and more sophisticated products, but the Arduino Uno is more than a product. It’s an icon.”

To celebrate 10 million boards sold, Arduino is releasing a special-edition, collectible Uno mini board. This board has a unique black and gold color scheme.

The collector’s board is packaged in special-edition packaging that plays with black and gold contrasts, thin lines and negative spaces. Each item is unique and numbered on the PCB.

The UNO mini also features a USB-C connector. The board’s design has been enhanced with castellated holes, so that it can be SMD mounted on another board.
