  • Interesting that this board is marketed as a development platform yet has the processor soldered in place instead of socketed. I don’t know exactly how many writes and re-writes the chip will endure before failing, but a board like this in the hands of an experimenter is certain to get a real workout. The Duemilanove, and newer UNO, use an easily-replaced, cheaply-priced, socketed 28-pin DIP which might make them better choices for hobbyists and experimenters who do a lot of code changing. However, if you really need the I/O and memory this board is a good choice.

No public wish lists :(
