The original plan for the remainder of 2020 was to continue improving the 2.0 release; however, it turned out that the 2.0 release was stable and not much needed to be fixed. So, what did we do? We started working on 2.1 and added some serious features. Please see the full release notes.
One of the top new added features is DigitalSignal, which is a non-blocking hardware-backed signal timing API for measuring and analyzing digital signals. It is documented under Signal Control.
Low Power Mode
Our customers love the amazing performance achieved when using 480Mhz SITCore product line with TinyCLR OS. But for those seeking low power, we now have an option to run the system at 240Mhz, reducing power consumption by 40%.
Speaking of speed, this release improves performance by almost 20%. What do you need to gain speed? Nothing! Just load the 2.1 firmware.
