The answer I heard (I think) is that the Due will have it's own independent IDE
One reason that this is less than desirable is that it will add significantly to the size of the downloads (a completely separate gcc/libc/binutils set)
My 2 cents[...]My bet would be there will be an UNO install and a DUE upgrade. The due upgrade will then create a new folder in arduino/cores and maybe add folders into arduino/variants.This is all governed by the boards.txt file. So it would be really nice if it worked as follows: Install empty Arduino IDE; select your board in the IDE ; IDE sees the core and variant info is not existing and asks to download.I expect version "1.0" will not have this feature.Again only my 2 cents
QuoteThe answer I heard (I think) is that the Due will have it's own independent IDEHmm. That's now how I interpreted what he said. I got more "we've incorporated the (chipkit) multiplatform capabilities in a way that we're happy with."One reason that this is less than desirable is that it will add significantly to the size of the downloads (a completely separate gcc/libc/binutils set)
Its highly integrated peripheral set for connectivity and communication includes Ethernet, dual CAN, HS USB MiniHost and device with on-chip PHY, high-speed SD/SDIO/MMC, and multiple USARTs, SPIs, TWIs and one I2S. The SAM3X8E also features a 12-bit ADC/DAC, temperature sensor, 32-bit timers, PWM timer and RTC. The 16-bit external bus interface supports SRAM, PSRAM, NOR and NAND Flash with error code correction.
Not sure if anyone has seen these pics of the Due, so just sharing the link I ran across.http://www.flickr.com/photos/robotgrrl/sets/72157629855444076/
Not in this universe, but I think there's a parallel one where some lucky individuals are playing with beta versions. Unfortunately so far there's been no wormhole to allow the transfer of information between the two.
I sure do not envy them
Off-course they have a beta board (they will probably own once the due is released)
