Man, the headline does not lie. Those boards are small with a capital S. I honestly didn't realize there were so many development boards out there with such small form factors.

I'd love to see a chart with IO

Very cool collection of ultra small dev boards I had never heard of.

I'd love to see a single table that lists them to easily compare price/size and most importantly the trade offs they make in IO to get so small.

Kudos for bringing these to light, Caleb!

BTW, I love the composite photos you are doing on your slideshow opener pages, too. Send me a cheat sheet on how you do it when you can.

That Teensy 3 is cute, but it doesn't appear to work with the Arduino IDE.

I've used the teensy 2 on multiple occasions building game controllers for people who are physically disabled. It works very well with the arduino IDE. I haven't personally tried the teensy 3.

Nice slideshow, Caleb. What other boards have you used from your slideshow? Anyone else use any of these boards? What was your experience like and what do you make? Share a story, post a comment. Thanks.

Those digisparks are insanely tiny. When I got mine, I was a bit scared I wouldn't be able to solder wires into it.

I've seen a few of these at the Maker Faire a few months ago. Where can these be purchased? Are they all available from one source or do you need to go to a different comany for each one?

BTW you can check out the freesoc mini at www.freesoc.net . Many of the Schmartboards are also in a small form factor. http://www.schmartboard.com/

I linked to where each item could be purchased within the story. Find the one you're looking for and the link should take you to where you can buy it.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
