I've started this discussion because I would like to know what you guys think of this new development board on Kickstarter (the "Prestissimo Uno+"). The board features the new ATMEGA328PB microcontroller. There aren't too many development boards out for this microcontroller other than the official atmel Xplained boards. The board has Arduino hardware/software compatibility and is compatible with atmel tools. It provides access to additional PWM, digital io, analog inputs, PWM, SPI, UART and I2C. All of which are scare on the original arduino. I see this as simplifying many scenarios in HW/SW development and also proving extended capability to makers.
