Engineering TV si Vinculo de la FTDI

Am dat pe Twitter peste acest site interesant ;-)
Daca nu avem la ce sa ne uitam la televizor, merita incercat sa vedem ce gasim pe la sectiunea embedded de pe Engineering TV.
Acolo am vazut Vinculo, reactia FTDI la Arduino Uno, care a renuntat la chipul lor si foloseste Atmega8 pentru comunicarea cu PC-ul.
Evident, vreau si eu unul... dar cred ca pe moment ma abtin... noroc ca inca nu sunt disponibile :)

Vinculo Platform Features:
• Onboard VNC2-64 USB dual channel Host / Device controller with a powerful 16-bit / 48MHz MCU core, 256KB Flash and 16KB SRAM which also supports UART, FIFO, SPI (master and slave), PWM and GPIO interfaces.
• The Vinculo I/O expansion bus is a superset of the popular Arduino Duemilanove / Uno platform with 2 extra rows of headers providing 10 additional interface pins thus making it easier to develop IO Boards (Shields) whilst avoiding hardware resource conflicts between different IO add-on cards.
• USB standard ‘A’ and mini ‘B’ connectors.
• 8-channel / 10-bit ADC and PWM interfaces.
• 38 general purpose I/Os (30 digital, 8 analogue).
• The Vinculo supports connectivity to a wide range of application boards developed by the Arduino open-source community. These include Ethernet, motor control, LCD and many others.
• The Vinculo uses a subset of standard ANSII ‘C’ (instead of the wiring/processing based software platform) with FTDI supported, free-of-charge software development tools, libraries and reference designs.
• Debugger interface to the VNC2 DEBUG MODULE for rapid firmware debugging.
• Same PCB form factor as Arduino.
• Compatible with the Vinculo_Proto shield development board (VNCLO-SHLD-1A - available below)
• 9V/1A DC input or USB powered (dependant on USB Host interface current requirements)
