But will people be willing to pay that much for an Arduino brand Cortex-M0+ ??

Of course, it's only a matter of time until cheap Chinese clones without the debug chip hit the market.  Maybe the big name retailers (Sparkfun, Seeed, etc) will make their own clones?

For me  absolutely NO.
I would prefer STM32
- I/O 5 volts tolerant
- much output current capability
- Second function : much redirection capability
- very low price
- form factor board much suitable
- et caetera

But is there *any* STM32 with good Arduino compatibility?

Sure, there are lots of 3rd party products.  My own products, which I'm not here to promote or mention by name, work great with most Arduino libraries.  But that's because I personally port and fix nearly all libraries.

Is anyone really doing that for STM32?  Or is the very old & outdated Maple IDE what's currently used for STM32?

Then again... it remains to be seen whether Arduino Zero will have good Arduino compatibility.  Due certainly doesn't.

This whole issue's been around for a few months. I think it's unlikely that the legal battle will be resolved anytime soon.

Still... anybody up for trying out a ZERO PRO?

(offtopic)For me, I'm not THAT concerned about the Zero with the legal dispute. It's the TRE that I'm really worried about.

Arduino Wiring  project with Hernando Barragan and Massimo Banzi exists from 2002.
The Arduino fork of 2005.
Is it not time to evolve ?
There is an enormous work to adapt avr librairies to ARM.
Rather than reinvent the wheel there is no better join forces.


There is Mbed project but  Mbed is too professional to DIY.
Mbed  is newer than Wiring / Arduino but not very far from the Arduino project.

There is room for a less professional approach with the same forum as this one which is the most successful of the Arduino project.

But it is not we who decide

On the matter of whether there's any fork of Arduino that really supports STM32 well, that sounds like a "no".

I found this 3rd party board with (a smaller*) SAM D21 (256k)
--> https://www.mattairtech.com/index.php/development-boards/mt-d21e.html
it has no "debug chip",
it comes with a MSD-Bootloader.
(If you ask, you can get the sources of the MSD-Bootloader, from the seller)

*(it's a SAM D21E instead of the SAM D21G on the Arduino Zero)

--------------------

interesting as well:
from the release notes here:
--> http://www.arduino.org/arduino-software-release-notes

- gcc: introduce bin compiling for Zero Pro programming port
sounds to me that is will be possible to flash without using the "debug chip" (but to use other known ways outside the arduino ide)

@CrossRoads Why would you want one? The whole point of the Zero is 32 bit...

So? This forces you into doing everything serially, can't read a port to get state of 8 pins together. Waste of hardware.

Hi, I tested now arduino ide 1.5.8.3 and confirm that is possible upload code to samd21xplained board via edbg on native port no activity, no enumeration.

I am upload now arduino zero bootloader via edbg, now is possible upload sketch from arduino ide via native port without edbg chip
