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

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
