Absolutely cool Arduino upgrade
Microchip the makers of the PIC range, have released a new development board that is going to ABSOLUTELY BLOW AWAY the Arduino AVR range.
The two proto-board systems are pin for pin compatible with the Arduino Mega and UNO, but more importantly they come with upgraded ram and micro-controllers that run at a scorching 80Mhz, compared to the AVR chips used in the Uno/Mega with run at 8Mhz & 16Mhz
The Units are available from Digilent at the following links:
And if the above two reasons are not enough for you to slap down your hard earned cash,you need to take a look at the price, which comes in under the cost of the AVR units.
