Maybe you remember when ST Microelectronics and Arduino released a news about Arduino/Genuino board.
The devel board named Arduino STAR OTTO and the main component of board should be STM32F469 microcontroller. The news promised WiFi on-board module, possibility of connecting of display, connector of camera and MEMS microphones.
How the development looks, you can check in this news.
Photogallery of Arduino STAR OTTO.

 
Whether you design of devices sometime you will need some tools for easier development of something. Maybe you made something what could be helpful for other makers.
Maybe your helpful tool doesn't sell.

Officially Raspberry Pi Foundation releases Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 (unofficially here and here).

As we could expect, the main components are the same like in Raspberry Pi 3.

The processor of CM3 is 10x more powerful than originally CM1...
 


In today article about Orange Pi Zero I want to show you how to blink of LED, measure the temperature by AD7415 sensor, which communicates through by I2C and at the end we send some data to NRF24L01 through SPI. I have to write you, at the beginning, that NRF24L01 doesn't work, but Orange Pi Zero works fine by analyzer. The codes are written in pythonu.

The article is on http://time4ee.com/articles.php?article_id=40
 


On orangepi forum was released pictures of new Orange Pi single-board computer which si called Orange Pi Zero Plus ORANGE PI 2G-IOT.

As you can see on the picture, the main component - processor, is RDA8810PL by RDA electronics.

About RDA8810PL
MCU subsystem:

- ARM Cortex-A5 with FPU up to 1 GHz

New version of router board called Banana Pi - R2 (BPI-R2) by SinoVoip.

The first version includes 5 gigabit ports and also SATA interface.

The second version of router board contains Mediatek MT7623A processor up to 1.3GHz (quad-core Cortex A7), which includes Mali-450 GPU, 2 GB RAM, eMMC 8 GB FLASH, also 5 gigabit ports...
 


Maybe you have not ESP32 module, but if you plan to buy it, you should check this tutorial "ESP32 in Arduino IDE for Mac and Debian/Ubuntu".

On this page you find what to do for correct working ESP32 in Arduino IDE.

After these steps you check if it works properly through example program, WiFi scanner, which you load to ESP32.

All steps there: http://randomnerdtutorials.com/installing-the-esp32-board-in-arduino-ide-mac-and-linux-instructions/
 


Espressif released info about a new development board with ESP32.

The board contains of course ESP32 module, 3.2" SPI LCD, external pSRAM memory and VGA camera interface.

ESP32 supports JTAG debuging and so you can use USB debugger. Next, you can develop with micro SD card, the board contains micro SD card slot.

All pins are connected to header.

NanoPi released news of a new single-board computer which is called NanoPi A64.

The CPU is used Allwinner A64 quad-core Cortex-A53 up to 1.15GHz with Mali400MP2 GPU which supports OpenGL ES2.0 and OpenGV1.1.
The amount of RAM is 1 GB DDR3 and the storage is micro SD slot which is standard for similar single-board computers...
 


The information about a new single-board computer which is called Lichee Pi One by a new company - Lichee (lychee chinese) is availble.
The news shared cnx-software.com website.

Single-board computer by Lichee wants to be interesting of course by price. The first model is Lichee Pi One and the price could be $6. The board is marked for the Chinese market for now...
 
This is the end of this year and so I would like to inform you about time4ee stats.

ST has introduced a new member of the STM32 mcu family, the STM32F413. It is the highest member of the STM32F4 Access Line sub-family.

The STM32F4xx family, based on ARM Cortex-M4 core processor, represents the upper-middle class within the STM32 mcus. It features clock frequencies of 100MHz to 200MHz, 0.5 to 2MB of FLASH and up to hundreds of kB of RAM memories, plus a generous portion of peripherals. But even this family has been split up into three classes. The lowest of them, Access Line, aims to replace the
oldest STM32F1xx family.
