Instead of waiting around for a faster Arduino to be released, Zach of NYCResistor is developing his own –

I’m in the process of porting the Arduino environment to the atmega644 for a skunkworks project I’m working on. This chip is awesome because it has 4x the flash (64k vs 16k) it has 4x the RAM (4k vs 1k) and 12 more I/O pins (32 vs 20)

Nice work, please keep going! – Arduino on Atmega644
