Topic: Arduino Vs PC104 (Read 862 times) previous topic - next topic

Hi,

I'm new in this forum and i'm french so please apologize my english.

I work with PC104 components and i hear everybody telling me about Arduino's benefits and stuff.
I wish some of you can give me some insights about this.

Can Arduino host FTP server or other servers?
What about its electrical (power) consumption, the calculator strength, its range possibilities.
Can we plug/unplug it without injuring it (is it solid).

I know there is a lot of questions but just try to answer quickly don't think too hard.

Thank you, best regards

The average PC104 system is a much more powerful computer than an Arduino; usually (these days) near desktop-PC class (32bit cpu with floating point, ~1 gigabyte of memory, standard high speed buses, disk support, etc), and at a price 10x of Arduino as well.

Not really.  An Arduino does not have any networking built in.  Nor files.

A typical Arduino uses less than 0.5W of power, runs at 16MHz, as a total of less than 40k of memory, and does about 16 million 8-bit additions per second.

An arduino is probably similar in "solidness" to a PC/104 system.


Ok thank you for your answer, it helps a lot.

Bye

If you want an alternative to PC104, you are probably looking for something like the Raspberry Pi or Beaglebone.
