Oh, there might indeed be a board with about the same performance as Due with very good Arduino compatibility & support, with 12 bit ADC & DAC and even 5V tolerance on its I/O pins....
there arent any other Arduino-compatible microcontrollers out there with the horsepower and two native CAN controllers required for my project.
Looking at the Star Otto photos, I can't figure out how it has the advertised USB Host. There's only 1 USB connector which looks like a device-only Micro-B.
Or take the Pi 3 "as it is", drop all that Linux stuff, and build a barebone Arduino board out of it
when Broadcom refuses to sell the chips to distributors or any "small" companies?
You should pay more attention to the Intel Galileo and Edison and their genral lack of followers...
I tried the Galileo but the company does not support Win XP to install drivers (opposite to the Arduino IDE).
