Why I like the Arduino Tre already

Let’s face it who can’t like the cross breeding between the Ti Beaglebone and the Arduino Uno.

It’s a win-win situation, while the Beaglebone is the big boy with ethernet, hdmi, audio, 1Ghz ARM processing speed and 512MB ram. Similar to most processing power found in today low spec smartphones, the Uno with the Atmel AVR is still king in embedded processing, simple, lean and efficient.

The Arduino Tre has it all, I really hope it will be available early 2014,  I haven’t seen any pricing yet but let’s make the math Beaglebone black (55 euro) + Arduino Uno (24 euro) = 79 euro this will make a really cool deal. (price source http://www.electroshopdendermonde.be)

On the landingpage at Arduino.cc you’ll find more detailed specs.

Hopefully it finds a place in my new to design small 2.5D CNC portable routing machine, but more about that in another post…
