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.
I feel Macnerd's original question re ARM / AVR is quiet valid & not explained, sure different processor manufacturers may use different machine code but higher level sketch code does not notice any difference between ARM / AVR on different Arduinos or do they.Today I downloaded a Nokia 5110 library from www.RinkyDinkElectronics.com & found a file structure in the zip as per attached image with seperate examples for ARM & AVR.Why are their two types of examples, are really different ?? I've seen this with other librarys as well. Looking forward to explanation
I know that I can get 32-bit AVR or 32-bit ARM.
