Features

  • Small and light-weight
    Since it's 48mm×48mm×13.9mm, small and light-weight, it can save space in development/mass production, and it's also easy to carry.
  • Low price
    Compared to the MINICUBE, MINICUBE2 costs one-third the price, which can reduce your initial costs for development and mass production.
  • Mode LED
    The appearance of the mode LED changes according to the status of hardware and software.
  • Self-testing function
    MINICUBE2 has a self-testing function, which is used to detect faults in MINICUBE2 and perform maintenance.
