Due will operate at 3.3V
No surprise there, I can't see them adding level converters to the board.

Thats interesting that they are speaking about their new layout considering the Due will have more of a Mega layout.

I wish they would just release the thing.

Thats interesting that they are speaking about their new layout considering the Due will have more of a Mega layout.

Considering that Uno-sized shields can plug into already the Mega (although a number of them need to be modified/have additional wires run to function correctly), standardizing the pin so the Due can use the same pin layout as the smaller boards isn't far-fetched at all.  Of course, there will probably be other pins beyond the Uno/Leonardo sized regon.  However, they could all be just additional general purpose I/O pins.

It looks like the analog pins on the Due are a bit lower than the Digital ones

Like the A6 + A7 are more to the right.  See what I mean? 
If that is what it is, then the R3 layout won't do much good.

I see your point that existing shields would cover the A6 and A7 pins (either making them hard to use or inaccessable), but remember two things.  First, these are development boards and the pin layout can still be modified slightly for the commercially sold boards.  Second and most importantly, the Uno only has A0 through A5 so any Uno-compatible shield would only use 6 "analog" pins.  Therefore, at worst an Uno shield would cost the use of 2 analog pins, but should still function all the same.

And thirdly (no one expects the Spanish Inquisition) shields are for wimps anyway so if you are up to using a Due you are probbly beyond shields, at least the shields that exist at the moment.

Yea, thats true.  I've never had a shield, although I have been considering one since its like 2 bucks and it separates a double row of 20 pins each to a point where I can smack it on a breadboard, but I don't wanna use it as a shield.

So the information that we know about the Due, is that all concrete?

 I think I remember Massimo saying that they produced 100 boards for testing. So, I would say it is not concrete but perhaps slushy.  smiley-lol

Haha, ok.  Its just i'm working on an Arduino reference app and I wasn't sure if I should put the Due into it quite yet

We don't know a date for the Due yet, the august 10th was just a project that I am working on.  I've hit a few bumps and they are proving difficult to solve.
Lets try to keep this about the Due though.

In a little more than a month it will have been one year since Arduino Due announcement... I hope it comes out soon, I would like to use it for some projects when school starts.
