I'm fed up with Raspberry Pi and wondering about Arduino and a starter kit. Where can I buy genuine boards

@RaspberryPete You could try OKDO

I had this problem on Linux - please see my article

A final and important step is to run as sudo the udev script buried in a hidden directory under your users home


This allows the IDE correct privileges to connect and upload new sketches.

Sounds great, but a like a significant number of suckers, I have sent mine back for refund as there appears a batch that will not upload *.bin files or upload firmware.

I even got hold of the Intel Curie factory flash kit and even it would not see the board.

Same problem on two different computers, on same USB ports that, with same cables, that will happily program AVR style boards.

No one, Intel or Arduino community, was able to solve the problem.

Whether it is dud batch of Curie, problems with driver compatibility with Windows (although similar problem reported by some on Linux) it was unuseable.

Clearly a copy and paste fail - the actual pin power is 20ma/pin.

The rest is barely modified content from the official arduino page.

3.3 volts per pin 4ma per pin... no good to me... pin compatible it isn't if the voltages are not the same. Plus with this intel chip you can't develop stand alone systems. So I can't design on this UNO101 and then apply the software to a stand alone chip on a smaller board with just bare minimum required components.... This makes the UNO101 a total fail in my book.

4ma per pin is a bit dismal.

This makes a lot of classroom teaching stuff not viable - eg, you can't even drive a regular LED, servos won't like it.
Are you sure this isn't a typo?
