get their software right
it looks the normal way of evolution
Did you see the design specs somewhere ?
Even a short list of features.
On some other forum I also saw some link to 4x4cm cubish stacks with 32-bits from ... Atmel by a German startup. Maybe you could be interested...
QuoteI want to make a wave additive synthesiserI have no idea what that is but yes it needs some neat projects (audio or visual or even audio-visual I would think) to show what it can do.QuoteI am trying to figure out what precisely to do with it that I could not do on a 1284-based Arduino OR a Linux capable board like Beagle bone.I have a feeling that 90% of apps can be done with less and the 10% that need more have other options. Still there are other options to the standard Arduino and it does well. Just being an official Arduino port will count for a lot. I've always thought the mega1284 was about perfect, I think I'll be holding off on my SAM design for the time being and might go back and revisit something similar I did a while back with the 1284.______Rob

it gives people a chance to learn the flow and basics first then if they need or want to dig deeper
something that can actually handle some more intense rendering/graphics?
Quotesomething that can actually handle some more intense rendering/graphics?The SAM is probably not the best ARM choice for high-res graphics rendering, many ARM chips have LCD interfaces built in and the SAM doesn't. I would not expect to get 3D rendering in anything like real time, but I don't think that's what Arduino users need from a board. The sort of thing I reckon people would like such as bar graphs, soft instruments etc would be a walk in the park for it. ______Rob
it'd be awesome for people like me who really have no previous programming experience other than arduino, to be able to use the same language to do more powerful applications
