In addition to this site, I write for Hackaday.com as well as Wired UK on occaision. Normally, I don’t really talk about those articles here, but I recently did a review of the PICnDuino chip for Hackaday that I though was really cool.
This chip, available for pre-order here, has the ability to function as an Arduino or using its PIC processor. Either can be selected to program with the flip of a switch, and both will run at the same time. These boards won’t be available until March, which makes it extra sweet that I got one of these to review. It’s got a great little form-factor as well as built-in LEDs and USB port, so what’s not to love?
Check out my full review on Hackaday, or just keep surfing around here, maybe check out the review/unboxing I did of the Arduino Uno. It may not have a PIC built in, but you can get your hands on one right now!
