Microsoft wants a slice of Raspberry Pi

Written by Nick Farrell



Builds one of its own

Software giant Microsoft has noticed the success of the DIY board Raspberry Pi and has come up with a version of its own. Microsoft has launched an Atom-based 'Sharks Cove' machine it hopes will attract developers with an interest in tablets.

At $299, Sharks Cove is too expensive to be of interest to those who might have bought a Raspberry Pi price range. However, it does run Windows and it runs a quad-core Atom Z3735G which can manage 1.83 GHz with the wind behind it. It has a GB RAM, 16 GB of Flash storage, and a bunch of interfaces.

According to the Shark’s Cove site, the project's target environments are “any Windows or Android based system which uses the ATOM processor. Interfaces include GPIO, I2C, I2S, UART, SDIO, USB, and MIPI for display and camera.”

The price not only covers the cost of the hardware, but also includes a Windows 8.1 image and the utilities necessary to apply it to the Sharks Cove. Sharks Cove will begin shipping from the end of this month.
