The new Arduino Tian board is powered by Atmel’s SAMD21 MCU. It features a 32-bit ARM Cortex® M0+ cortex and a Qualcomm Atheros AR9342. The AR9342 is a highly integrated, feature-rich MIPS processor operating at up to 560MHz and an IEEE802.11n 2×2 2.4/5 GHz dual-band WiFi module. The Qualcomm Atheros MIPS supports a Linux distribution, based on OpenWRT, named Linino. The Arduino Tian has includes a build in 4GB eMMC memory that will help get started building your projects. It is possible to turn off the Linux port from the MCU to reduce the power consumption.
NB: In some countries, it is prohibited to sell WiFi enabled devices without government approval. While waiting for proper certification, some local distributors are disabling WiFi functionality. Check with your dealer before purchasing a Tian if you believe you may live in such a country.
