“Most powerful” Arduino ever has
ARM Cortex-A8 chip, runs “full Linux”
3D printers, sensor networks, and advanced automation enabled by Arduino Tre
The Arduino line of open source electronic prototyping platforms is getting some major upgrades. Earlier today, the first Intel-powered Arduino was announced, and it will be available by the end of November.
Arduino has also announced the Arduino Tre, based on the Texas Instruments Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 processor. Texas Instruments said that with the Tre's 1GHz processor, it is the "most powerful Arduino to date" and the first that will be able to run "full Linux." It will be available in spring 2014 from arduino.cc and other distributors, with pricing not yet announced.
