However, it is a solution aimed at an entirely different set of problems
I will be watching to see the types of projects that people create with them, and that may increase my level of interest.
I wonder if there are enough people that actually need a better processor.
The last thread you made may have had more interest in the Micro-controller section, at least for the Leonardo it has worked out to be 8 pages so far.
If you build it they will come. Maybe. We get posts here along the lines of "How do I do speech recognition while simultaneously controlling 10000 LEDs" or "How do I do pattern recognition from a digital camera".
OTOH maybe Arduino is doomed to a life of controlling wearable LEDs
The alternative is to do a breakout board, with 144 pins though it will be a challenge to make it breadboad friendly.
how many mega2560 boards are sold, those applications would be obvious candidates for a SAM.
looks like I missed out on the Discovery board
Maybe the Due will need a "killer app" to show people what can be done
I've started 2 or 3 threads on subjects relating to the new Due and they have received an interest level roughly equal to none.Is there really that little interest? And if so what does that say about the new board's chances of success?Rob
Quotelooks like I missed out on the Discovery boardWell this side of the Atlantic you had to buy them anyway. I just got mine, it was only £10.
I want to make a wave additive synthesiser
I 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.
