Arduino and SiFive launch Arduino Cinque
SiFive has announced a partnership with Arduino to launch the Arduino Cinque, an official open hardware board based around its RISC V-based Freedom E310 microcontroller. Based heavily on the SiFive HiFive1 board (reviewed in Issue 164), the Arduino Cinque features a Freedom E310 running at 320MHz, an Espressif ESP32 for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support. It also has the familiar Arduino Uno layout, plus the guarantee of native compatibility with the Arduino Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Pricing and availability have yet to be confirmed.
