Thanks RCousins. The Snickerdoodle looks really interesting. We'll definitely include it. Any chance we can get a review board?

Hey Susan, maybe check this one out for future lists: http://snickerdoodle.io

Why would a lack of schematics be a problem in this case? The software for the system is clearly defined, as is the behaviour at the various interfaces, which are mostly standard.

If, for some reason, the board can't be treated as a black box, how hard would it be to reverse-engineer it? All the components are accessible and clearly marked. (Obviously, the cost of doing that might well make it uneconomic to use in a particular project.)

In case the answer's painfully obvious, the question comes from a software type who tries hard not to let the magic blue smoke out too often.

Agree. Many of them are low cost BUT some (Such as Raspberry Pi 3) do not even come with schematics which render then useless for anything more than a training tool for students. IF they are not trying to make money then the schematics should be included to allow use in commercial projects. So much lost potential.

I might call this list the best hobbiest SBC's but no where near the best SBC's.  These are cheesy.

I was going to make the same comment (that the microSD card slot actually is there)! They also have a $10 HDMI cape making it about the same cost as a BeagleBone Black if you want to have the display support. Of course, LCD capes still work without the HDMI.

Thanks Pete220. Good idea about FPGA and SDR boards. We'll put those on the list. Let us know if you have any other ideas for board lists.

Wikipedia has done the comparison.

Buzzer,

x86 is great... I grew up learning to program for it. However, I felt the communities around the current selection of x86 boards is far smaller. 

However, I expect an explosion of x86 boards on the market soon. If only to support Win10 in some capacity. 

 

Do you have any x86 boards in mind?
