I'm behind the times! :om:

Was poking around in Jaycar today and noticed these new single board computers... the pcDuino.

And you can use 2015 technology to generate 1915 morse code!

Is the Raspberry Pi beyond it's use-by date? :J

Hi Adam,
A good question, but I do not think so.
PcDuino Nano V3.0 - All Winner A20 SoC (Dual Core)
Raspberry Pi 2 Model B - 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU
Both have 1 Gb RAM and run various flavours of Linux, but there is extra $ for a lower spec CPU if you go down the PcDuino path.
Yes, it is possible to use some arduino board with the PcDuino, but it's not a big deal for me.
I have a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, and it is very fast, and I also play with Arduino (in various forms).
I do not quite see the benefit of PcDuino.
Just my 20c worth.
