FreeSoC - Arduino Form Factor PSoC Board

So I recieved my freeSoC and freeSoC Mini boards this week.  Although I haven't picked out a project that I want to do with them yet, I'm pretty excited.

If you haven't heard of freeSoc, it is an Arduino compatible development board that was offered through Kickstarter by Jon Moeller in September.  Jon is a master's student at Texas A&M.  He liked both PSoC and Arduino so he set out to combine them.  Jon did a fantastic job and sold over 600 boards on Kickstarter.  FreeSoC is an Arduino compatible board with a PSoC 5 (shown right) while the freeSoC Mini is a smaller stick style board.  

FreeSoC and FreeSoC Mini are now available in pre-order from freeSoC.net.

Take a look at Jon's Kickstarter video to learn more.

 

What are you thinking of doing with your freeSoC?

I received my freeSoc last weekend and have successfuly ported my USB 9-bit RS-485 adapter to the Arduino form factor one using a custom RS-485 shield. Next task is to figure out how to change USART baud rate on the fly.

With the mini I am looking at replacing an existing 8051 implementation with the mini's ARM core. The mini's 8051 pin compatibility in the DIP-40 form factor, and the power of the 5 LP is going to make this a success.

I ordered a Freesoc mini, But it should take a couple of more days to arrive. They are a bit pricey but the DIP form factor is great.

I still don't get why people keep doing boards with Arduino pinout.
