I like the idea of a proper 32bit Arduino if I'm honest.
I like this, although I'd be weary committing time to something potentially problematic - how developed are these, and how wide is their use? I like the idea of a proper 32bit Arduino if I'm honest.
I can't see why pin mapping should be any problem at all. Am I missing something?
doubt the Due will have any of the above features and as I said if you just create a simple Mega-look-alike it should work well.
But to my mind the Due is not about sheer numbers of GPIO pins, it is about the speed and internal memory. This opens up the possibility of using it for projects that currently beginners think the Arduino is capable of doing. Stuff like MP3 decoding, web cam interface, audio record and playback, image processing, LCD graphics display driving, digital signal processing, FFT and recognition and so on. The sort of stuff young people think a computer should do easily.
But it's going to take so much more than just a chip to make these things happen.
