The ZPUino is a 32 bit processor running at 100Mhz with an integrated VGA display adapter and YM2149 sound processor. Everything is controlled by a sketch and an easy to use VGA library from the Arduino IDE.
The good news is that a 1.0 version of the ZPUino will be released soon probably before the end of this month.
This release will have so many new features and we can list some of them here:
- things will go faster with a new improved extreme core.
- Smaller generated code for sketches.
- Upload-to-RAM feature.
- New VGA interfaces.
- Arduino 1.0 IDE
- Audio chips!! YM2149, Pokey and SID.
- Papilio Plus support.
