Atmel Ships New Microcontroller with Linux SDK

reports that Atmel is now shipping a very inexpensive single board
computer (SBC) that runs Linux. The ATNGW
100 board, based on Atmel's AVR32 architecture, can be had for only
$69. While it's aimed at network gateway use, robot experimenters will
be interested too because of the pricing. The board includes a
lot of stuff for $69 such as a 140MHz AT32AP7000
MCU/DSP, 32MB SDRAM, 16MB flash, an SD/MMC slot, an ATtiny24 board
controller interface, 16-bit stereo audio DAC, LCD controller, USB 2.0,
two 10/1000 Ethernet ports, RS232, USART, TWI/I2C, I2S, JTAG, timer/PWM
outputs, and GPIO pins. More details can be found on the AVR
Freaks NGW page.
