Is ARM used in the likes of Raspberry Pi & Beaglebone?
I'm an electronics newbie.I'm totally confused. Using Google I've tried to find out the differences between AVR architecture & ARM architecture. Google hasn't been much help. I know that I can get 32-bit AVR or 32-bit ARM.
I want to get an Arduino but there are so many different ones that it's hard for me to choose which one. I went to the Atmel website & looked around & it didn't help answer my questions. Does Arduino use only AVR? Does Arduino have any 32-bit Atmel micro-controllers? Is ARM used in the likes of Raspberry Pi & Beaglebone?
Agreed.Get a cheap Uno, there are plenty of clones on eBay I'm sure 99% of them are OK.Then if it doesn't do what you want, or it doesn't suit your project, you wont have wasted much money ;-)
For that matter, a UNO may be the first board bought, but is unlikely to be the last. Once you get into embedded systems, you can always find a use for the older boards.
