mbed: an ARM-based devkit
Yesterday I saw this piece of hardware. As Caesar said: "I came, I saw, I bought". :)
I like this: "mbed is a prototyping tool a little bit like an Arduino. On steroids. With claws and fangs."
mbed is NPX-based dev kit you can use in your breadboard (DIP40 footprint). Simply look at its pinout - isn't it amazing?
The most curious fact about mbed is that its dev tools are online. (Interesting idea, but - what to do if the connection is down?)
But the best thing about mbed: Its price is only US$60 now (until December, 2009). So don't hesitate...
