I'm sorry "after Easter" only states a no sooner then date, how long is the outlying possiblity? That could mean any time before Easter 2013 is my mind.  ;)

You cynic you :)


I find realism is quite often mistaken for cynicism. ;)

I fully agree

I was in Cyprus last week.
There Easter started on Sunday and goes on for 5 days (not sure this is inclusive or exclusive sunday).
So today (or tomorrow) we are the first day "after Easter"  8)
Anyone knows a later Easter in 2012?

low level language as C++

Now that's a surprise :D

On topic - I see no much incommon between Arduino and R-Pi. Having IO pins doesn't make it a controller. I guess optimal solution would be having both boards at once, communicating and minding each it's own business. I wonder how soon a communication shield will appear for Arduino-RPi (to stack them together, not utilizing USB). Same goes for Due. I don't believe a computer can replace controller or vice-verso. It's like screwing nails and hammering screws.

Edit: said that, I'm just an artist :)

You might be but you are quite right.
The raspberry pi expansion board is in fact very similar to an arduino complete with AVR processor.

It seems to me that this whole debate is about which viewpoint you have.
Fx. I see the RPI as a new Ethernet/Video Shield, while a RPI freak will see Arduino as a new RPI shield (they only have their Gert Board)

According to wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C%2B%2B

It is regarded as an intermediate-level language, as it comprises a combination of both high-level and low-level language features.

In the arduino context I say it is a lowlevel language as most of the high level features are not really usable.

I somehow thought of convenience of compiler interpretation as high level... at least my brother debugging instructions in hex at that moment giggled :)

OK, not January...

April 2012.

I would really like just one thing: Where can Ordinary Mortals actually order and pay for a Due??, so, we are at least in line with the rest of the Planet??

I was at least able to get in the queue for my RaspberryPi and now I have been told that I'll actually get it.. That feels a lot more like I have some connection to the process.

If you want an Arduino with the performance of the Due now, just buy a Uno32:

You can then buy a Due if and when it goes into production, and all your code should run on it.

You can't say that because you don't know what the performance of the Due will be. The processor decision has not been announced.

Exactly 8)
You don't even know which software and hardware incompatibilities there will be between 1.0 and the due. :smiley-mr-green:
Unless you are part of the team working on the due; in which case we would appreciate some information ]:D

All the latest Atmel Cortex-M3 parts have about the same performance, AFAIK.

The PIC32 used on the Uno32 has about the same performance as the Atmel Cortex-M3 that will be used on the Due. The PIC32 only runs at 80 MHz, but it has a five-stage pipeline, whereas the M3 only has a three-stage pipeline. I just can't see there being much difference in performance between the Due, if it ever goes into production, and the Uno32.

A few people have actually got prototype Due boards. Perhaps someone with one of those will provide some timings so that the two can be compared.

A recent tweet from the Arduino team

the processor is a SAM3/X from ATMEL


Hopefully this snippet of information means the release is close.
