Teensy and Teensyduino

The Teensy is an USB development system, based on AT90USB162 AVR.

Image an Arduino "cousin" with built-in USB interface thanks to AT90USB162 microcontroller... Do you have it? Fine, you've got the Teensy!

The Teensy USB Development Board is a complete USB-based microcontoller development system. You can use Teensy directly in a breadboard due to its size. All you need to use Teensy is the USB A-miniB cable.

Unlike the Arduino, which converts 38.4 kbps serial to USB, the Teensy has direct 12 MBit/sec USB access, so communications are sent and received at full USB speed.

Direct USB access is possible, so the Teensy is not limited to being only a serial-type USB device. It can act as HID, Mass Storage, or nearly any type of USB device. The Teensy also has a serial port. It is not connected the USB port and can be used separately.

The Teensy is available in the PJRC shop: [?https://www.pjrc.com/store/teensy.html Teensy]

They provided also Teensyduino. Teensyduino is a software add-on for the Arduino IDE, which adds the ability to build and run sketches on the Teensy. You can download Teensyduino here
