The ChipKit Uno32 is a new Arduino-compatible board from Digilent and Microchip, based around a PIC32 MIPS microcontroller. This makes it a vastly more powerful platform than the ATMEGA328 based Arduino Uno, a lot of the press releases about it seem to be claiming that it's the first 32 bit based Arduino compatible, whether or not you consider the Maple to be equally worthy of this title, it has to be said it's a huge leap for the power of the platform.
