The 72Mhz FEZ Panda II runs .NET Micro Framework, allowing users to program and debug FEZ Panda using Microsoft's free Visual C# Express. Applications are loaded over USB cable (or serial) with full featured debugging capabilities, such as stepping in code or inspecting variables.
FEZ Panda II is an enhanced version of FEZ Panda (the original) with On-board microSD socket, Real Time Clock, and an easily accessible 40-pin female header that exposes the extra IOs.
