It's anything but vapourware! I think we should all support such initiatives as they have the potential to inspire generations who might not be inclined or financially able to join our community.

I am not sure why you think such things are vaporware as they have been on sale for some time. In fact that highlights a reason to purchase Raspberry Pi or Mbed; lower price.

Why spending time in something that you cannot purchase to put in your product ? This is vaporware. Try Linux Stamp ( http://www.thelinuxstamp.com/ ) Use Atmel, you can purchase the chips right in the corner; Datasheets ? Get full datasheets at atmel.com.

Let me try those links again. The parentheses created confusion. http://www.ti.com/tool/ek-lm4f120xl http://www.element14.com/community/community/knode/dev_platforms_kits/element14_dev_kits/kinetis_kl2_freedom_board

RasPi is a terrific GNU/Linux platform for the price, with a strong developer community. However, GNU/Linux is in many ways a mainframe operating system and programming down at the bare metal can be challenging, especially since the BCM2835 documentation is limited. For bare-metal real-time development, here are a couple of interesting new boards to be available later this month: Texas Instruments Stellaris® LM4F120 LaunchPad Evaluation Board (http://www.ti.com/tool/ek-lm4f120xl) with a promotional price of US$4.99. The processor is an 80 MHz Cortex-M4F with DSP instructions, FLOATING POINT, 256KB Flash, and 32KB SRAM. Freescale Freedoom Kinetis KL25Z development board (http://www.element14.com/community/community/knode/dev_platforms_kits/element14_dev_kits/kinetis_kl2_freedom_board) for US$12.95 with 48 MHz Cortex-M0+, 128KB Flash, and 16KB SRAM.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
