The Teensy is available with header pins, for direct no-soldering-required use on a breadboard, which can also be run from the +5 volt from the USB cable. Standard Teensy boards come with solder pads. Either way, all Teensy boards come fully assembled and tested, so no surface mount soldering is needed.

Some Features
  • USB can be any type of device
  • AVR processor, 16 MHz
  • Single pushbutton programming
  • Easy to use Teensy Loader application
  • Free software development tools
  • Available with pins for solderless breadboard
The Teensy Loader makes getting code into your Teensy easy. Just press and release the reboot button and the processor runs the HalfKay bootloader, which is automatically detected.

Do you need a 1GHz MPU to run Linux and Android?

"Many systems other than smartphones would like to benefit from the standardization of Android’s offerings, but over a completely different UI. One option here is the Inflexion UI GUI tool from Mentor Graphics. It also enables applications to use the Android Dalvik framework, but allows device manufacturers to quickly and easily create their own UIs and get the most out of the hardware, even if the hardware does not have an expensive GPU."

"But not all embedded systems require whizz-bang features and a blazing fast microprocessor (MPU). Vertical markets such as home and commercial applications, point-of-sale terminals...."
