I have been using the Photon for a number of years now and recently moved up to the Argon. Now with the new EtherSIM, I am thinking about moving over to the Boron. Recently, I have a need for multiple UART ports, which is not available on the Photon, Argon or Boron. That leaves the Electron, but the issue there is it being a Gen 2 device to say nothing about the incompatibility with EtherSIM. My worry about the Electron is, how long will it live. I hesitate to start a project on a device with its EOL in sight, but I need multiple UARTS. I could add an external UART with an I2C interface, but that drives cost way up not to mention complexity.
Anyone have any ideas, advice or suggestions?
