Any suggestions?

Plug it into two breadboards. (no I'm not joking, I see no problem with doing that)

Headers: Suggestion: Male headers down for breadboard compatibility, Female headers up for additional pins.

Leave uncommitted so you can add whatever is appropriate for your application.

Thanks for the suggestion.

BTW we can discuss other Arduino compatible products and call them by name, I was just objecting to a couple of messages that were basically advertising while the topic is about discussing other formats for the Due.

Hi Massimo and thanks for stopping by.

First of all, many thanks for your time, efforts, and so on that it has taken to get the Arduino project as far as you and your team have. You've single-handedly transformed what used to be a clubby atmosphere in the embedded systems market with the excitement of open-source IDE's/hardware, excellent documentation, great boards for people to begin learning electronics on, etc. That's a huge achievement and the number of competitors imitating you is I guess a nice compliment.

That said, and I don't want to be rude, but where are we off-topic? We're comparing the Due to its competitors, it has features they don't and vice versa. Similar conversations go on all over the forums, comparing various Arduino boards to each other. Are you sensitive to the discussion of a competitors' product?

Many thanks again for all the work that you and your team do to push the Arduino business forward.

thanks for the kind words :)

BTW I don't "stop by", I live here :)

As I mentioned we can freely discuss any compatible board/competitor and what not. I was just objecting to a post that was basically advertising while I was more interested in the discussion around what other formats the Due could have.



I for one would like to see a Due the size of a Uno. I don't really care that I won't be able to use all the pins. Heck, most of my advanced projects don't even use all the pins of a standard Arduino. I however do need the extra processing power, speed and memory of the SAM3x chip.

If more IO is needed, I can always buy or build expander shields based on SPI, I²C or plain old shift registers. :)

I've looked at other memebers of the same family with a smaller package that wouldn't require a huge amount of porting.
it would be possible to make a Uno sized board with one of those.
