Arduino adds two more products to the range - Galileo and Tre

Yesterday's announcement of the Arduino Galileo at Make Faire Rome overshadowed a second significant announcement: The Arduino Tre.

Arduino Galileo




The Arduino Galileo is based on the Intel Quark SoC X1000, and should be in the store by the end of November, though the lucky attendees at Maker Faire were given one at the door yesterday. (If anyone has a spare...)

Intel plan to give away 50,000 to Universities over the next few months.

Arduino Tre


The Arduino Tre is based on the TI Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8, built around a Leonardo core.  It has a 1GHz processor with 512M of RAM. It supports 1920x1020 HDMI video output and HDMI/Stereo Analogue audio.

It's expected to be available in Spring 2014.

Linux everywhere

Both boards run Linux, and both can be programmed using the Arduino IDE.

The Arduino family now spans a huge range of processing power while supporting a common development environment and compatible libraries across the whole range.
