Spotters Guide to the mangOH Red
Published:  30 January 2017

As of January 2017, there's two versions of the mangOH Red hardware platform. Each version of the board is quite different and it's important to be aware of which version of the board you are working with.

Here's how to identify different versions of the mangOH Red just by looking at the board.

The DV1 board was released in very limited numbers around June 2016
