    just great!

    Posted by Harold Jimenez on 1st Jul 2014

    I've been working with pcDuino for some time now and I can say that pcDuino v2 is the best for me! I know pcDuino v3 has more muscle (extra core + extra ports), but pcDuino v2 has the perfect mix for me in av ports + arduino headers!! I've worked with FEZ raptor and Netduino Plus 2 before. Both are great as well but pcDuino v2 is the winner for long! I'm now unleashing my C++ skills by using all the arduino-pcduino headers, PWM, SPI, TWI, ADC, GPIO, Interrupts etc. I don't like pretty much the Arduino-IDE so I rather program on gedit and created my bash script to compile and link. pcDuino v2 is pure muscle!!

    I program embedded systems professionally and have used many different microcontrollers and demo boards including PICs, Arduino, Stellaris, TI DaVinci, and STM32. The pcDuino V2 is my current favorite by a long shot. I have not seen a better combination of features, performance, software, support, ease of use, and price anywhere. The VNC over USB-OTG feature (required a firmware update for my units) is simply great, allowing use of the pcDuino without an additional keyboard, mouse or monitor. I found the online documentation to be very good and easy to follow. I'd recommend browsing through the tutorials to get a good idea of the pcDuino's capabilities. To get the most out of pcDuino, some familiarity with Linux, common software tools and open source software is necessary.
