Teensy 3.0

I just backed the Teensy 3.0 on Kickstarter.  It’s designed by Paul Stoffregen, the same wizard behind the Arduino-compatible Teensy boards.  It sports a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M4 chip, and is programmable via Arduino and C.  This looks like it’s going to be a great platform for building embedded projects that need more power than the typical Arduino.  The board is tiny compared to Raspberry Pi.

Technical Specs:

  • 32 bit ARM Cortex-M4 48 MHz CPU (M4 = DSP extensions)
  • 128K Flash Memory, 16K RAM, 2K EEPROM
  • 14* High Resolution Analog Inputs (13 bits usable, 16 bit hardware)
  • 34* Digital I/O Pins (10 shared with analog)
  • 10 PWM outputs
  • 8 Timers for intervals/delays, separate from PWM
  • USB with dedicated DMA memory transfers
  • 3 UARTs (serial ports)
  • SPI, I2C, I2S, IR modulator
  • I2S (for high quality audio interface)
  • Real Time Clock (with user-added 32.768 crystal and battery)
  • 4 general purpose DMA channels (separate from USB)
  • Touch Sensor Inputs

At $22, it’s a bargain.  The campaign ends on Sept 16, so get them while they’re hot!
