Using a Raspberry Pi with Arduino


  1. Mars,

    have you ordered a Raspberry Pi?

    I have one on order, still awaiting a delivery date. They look rather impressive and for what they are, very capable. Should be a bit of fun to play with.

  2. I have not ordered one yet. I am thinking about getting one for my Rhythm Robot project. I had intended to use an ATMega1280 and an STM32F103 for the audio synthesizer engine, but the Pi is so cheap and so powerful that I suddenly think it might make more sense to run everything under Linux instead of doing it on the bare metal. Weird. I’ll have to get one and play with it.

  3. I think you could be right. Pointless re-inventing the wheel with such a cheap and capable alternative available.
