Oak – The WIFI enabled microcontroller DEV board.

Erik Kettenburg from over at digistump.com has come up with his fourth Kickstarter campaign named ‘Oak’.

Oak is a tiny Arduino Compatible development board with built-in Wi-Fi and a secure cloud-powered platformcalled RootCloud (online IDE, REST API, and Dashboard) which makes it easy to create cloud-connected electronic devices, projects, and products.

Oak is fully Arduino compatible and is loaded with features such as:

  • 32-bit microcontroller
  • 80Mhz (overclockable to 160Mhz)
  • 802.11b/g/n WIFI module
  • 11 I/O pins
  • Wide range voltage regulator
  • 1MB Rom (~300KB for user code)
  • SPI
  • I2C
  • UART
  • And measures just 23.4mm x 30mm


The Oak is powered by RootCloud which looks to be a creation of the Digistump guys. It’s an online Arduino style IDE which (among other things) allows you to upload code to the Oak wirelessly, no matter where your Oak happens to be located in the world. You can also debug wirelessly and read data off of the Oak, you guessed it – wirelessly! You can store all of your code on the cloud or export it to your own computer.
