Hi Max: Thought I would contact you to say that I have now backed Tobias on this project.

However I think it would be kind of cool if we could get the word out there that this is a realy good poroject.

I suspect becuase it is not Kickstarter people are put off. I just paid with PayPal just like I do with most Kickstarter projects.

As it runs multiple Arduino engines I can see a definite link up with the ScrewBlock.

Who else likes this project and has not yet signed up to it?

With yours and Duane's, Jack's and Tobias projects taking my spare cash, it definitley looks like Design West is out the window for this and next year again.

Ah well the hardware has a longer life span than the pints we would drink (:-)LOL

Hi Bp_968,

Arduino Users can use Virtual Peripherals

Sometimes you want to add additional sensors and actuators to your robot. These sensors and actuators have most of the time interfaces like SPI, I2C, etc.. With a standard controller, you might run out of peripherals for that. This is where you can use virtual peripherals to connect an almost unlimited number of additional sensors and actuators.

Arduino Users can program MultiCore

It is a lot of fun to program your project on a MultiCore environment. Play with it and maybe you have ideas how to improve it and how to improve the programability. The board offeres already 140 MIPS, which is a lot for such a small chip, but once the community agreed on the right system architecture, we can make an ASIC out of it.

FPGA Users ...

FPGA boards are more expensive than simple µC boards. I think that the LCFA board with its FPGA, HS-USB and half a Gig of memory is offered at a fair price. Not to forget that you don't need a download cable. Additional, a lot of configurations will follow (MSP430, OpenRisc1200 etc.), so this board will offer a lot of fun to FPGA nerds as well.

I hope this makes you a huge fan and a great baker of this project.

Cheers, Tobias

It looks interesting but $100 is a fair bit to swallow for a hopped up Arduino board. What projects would you use this on that a cheaper board/MCU couldn't handle?

@Tobias: Crusty, that comparison would be just awesome.

Tobias sorry about getting the wrong name.

I will pledge for the second level reward, when I get home next week, hopefully the good lady wife will have left some money in my pocket.

Glad to see the total is increasing.

I think Max should adopt your project deliverable, as a flag ship for his bodicious designs.

@suarezvictor: Thanks for the link it's been some time since I looked at Propellor, I may have to dig my eval board out and see how it works side by side with Thomas's project when it gets fully funded on Indiegogo.

@Cuisty1 Propeller can be programmed in C/C++ with PropGCC

No need for Google.  I first looked at the most obvious places, the Arduino article at Wikipedia and Arduino's official web site http://arduino.cc/.  Oddly enough, neither explains the origin of the name.

I just realized it's probably at the Italian Wikipedia.  Sure enough:
Il nome della scheda deriva da quello di un bar di Ivrea (che richiama a sua volta il nome di Arduino d'Ivrea, Re d'Italia nel 1002) frequentato da alcuni dei fondatori del progetto.

Personally, I like my etymology better :-)

I've never determined where the product name Arduino comes from, other than it's an Italian given name or surname....

@Tobias,

I'm not trying to be negative, just pointing out some other approaches (which might  their own good points - the Propeller, XMOS, and Ubicom definitely aren't cookie-cutter MCUs).

I do think you should consider a VAT-less option for non-EU customers.  In any case, I wish you well.

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.
