Re: [Tampa-Bay-Microcontrollers] Re: BeagleBone Black now at $45 MSRP

Hey Jaymer:

If you don't mind my asking why did you choose a BeagleBone over a Rasberri Pi or an Arduino?  You can pickup an Arduino clone for as little as $10.00 each.  

I use a lot of xBees in my applications, but I use Arduino clones for the microcontroller.  To me, a BeagleBone or a Pi seems like massive overkill for most applications.

     I researched this today. I like it due to not being
 Windows/.NET, etc.
     
    
     Python progs will be nice.
     
    
      
     
    
     I need a temperature monitoring solution using
 Thermocouples.
     
    
      
     
    
     I just bought Adafruit's  Beagle Bone Black
 Starter Pack   *** IN STOCK AS OF TONIGHT MAR 24
 2014 ***
     
    
     and some thermocouples and Digital temperature sensors.
     
    
      
     
    
     I doubt bulk orders will work - BBB in short supply.
     
    
      
     
    
     I'd love to get in touch with some other local folks
 - I need help discussing my Topology for my devices. 
     
    
     Might use 1-wire, with some help from this thread:

    I'm also investigating Zigbee/XBee wireless nodes.
    
   
    More expensive, yes.
    
   
    An interesting set of tutorials is here:

       I'd be interested in resurrecting our
 bulk-orders-to-save-­on-shipping if there are any other
 takers.

             When I first saw the Raspberry Pi, it was hard
 to get excited about it because it lacked the hardware
 interface support. 
             
               
              
             
              Not so the BeagleBone!  The new 
              BeagleBone
 Black is now just $45.  Running a complete embedded
 Linux at 1GHz with every bit as much hardware interface
 capability as the Arduino, I now wish that I had cut my
 teeth on this puppy, rather than the Arduino!
              
             
               
              
             
              Any interest in reviving the Microcontroller
 and Robotics group (in Pinellas for me) to poke at these
 puppies?
