Here are the specifications as listed on Newark’s website. I cannot wait to start playing with it!

FYI: If you order it now, I am pretty sure you don’t get the headers. The orginal listing was a prototype board with headers and when they released the final version, it didn’t have headers, so they included them with the pre-orders at no extra cost.
