why is this supposedly more powerful Discovery Board being sold for so cheap
now I know that the Cortex M0 and M3 are essentially the same device as Arduino
one for Atmel too since they seem to have a ton of AVRs that are all the same.
Yes, the Raspberry Pi would be an option if someone could actually obtain one, let alone ten for a workshop. And as far as I know it is being marketed as a cheap computer, not an embedded platform. I also read that the main controller on it has no official documentation, so I will have to wait a few more months for people to hack it before that becomes an option.
What information did you find lacking in the datasheet for the Rasberry Pi's ARM
QuoteWhat information did you find lacking in the datasheet for the Rasberry Pi's ARMPersonally, I found a complete lack of any information about current source and sink capabilities of the GPIO pins. This is vital for use as an embedded controller.
Still waiting for my Pi to arrive... maybe this month.
This one should be "interesting": Freescale Freedom eval platform
