Open source Arduino platform gets powerful Texas Instruments ARM-based chip

Arduino, a line of low-cost, open-source electronics boards developed in Italy in 2005, has gained a passionate following among do-it-yourselfers and the “maker” community in recent years. The boards have been used to build everything from environmental sensors to robots. But Arduino is about to get even more powerful support, quite literally, in the form of Texas Instruments. The US electronics giant has partnered with the Italy-based Arduino organization to create a new board, the Arduino Tre, that uses TI’s 1-gigahertz Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 processor. First previewed on the Arduino blog on October 3rd, the Tre was formally unveiled at the Maker Faire in Rome earlier today, with availability expected in the “spring of…
