Tiny! Shiny!

We live in a great time to be an electronics tinkerer. What with the Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBoard and other single-board computers, it’s cheaper and easier than ever to get started with hardware hacking. And the options available to prospective makers continue to grow — case in point: the Stellaris LaunchPad from Texas Instruments, an ARM-based single-board kit that sells for only $13.

The Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad kit includes the evaluation board and a USB cable; all the software and documentation necessary to program the board is available as a free download from TI.
