That isn't bad, but it is getting really close to microATX cost. That might be a tough decision.

Really a very very good collection of the OSB

This is a very informative slide show with collection of all the different OSBs(Open Source Boards). A detailed comparison wiki is still under evolving state but this really gives very good comparison of the possibilities today. The different boards are providing a good combination of interfaces, may a collective usage and experience with the hardware will enable the user to mix the interfaces and come up with his own design. But overall this slide show gave a good reference.

@Duanebenson Thanks Duane, agree about the Beaglebone. And the folks at Atmel would be pleased to hear your remarks about the Arduino, as they wondered why it was not included. Some say, though, that it isn't an SBC, although one of the newest Arduino-based boards does run a version of Linux.

I believe that the real significative point here is that all this Biggest-Little revolution is driven by ARM processors!!

Intel should take care of this and try to develop a real low-cost industrial SoC...

PS: Is amazing the things I always learn here in EETimes: I'd never heard before the word "wroking", and I'm very surprised for the meaning!! -- Max, you are a human urban-dictionary!!

Video Input

I know the RasPi has a video input connector, although the software only supports the Foundation-sourced camera accessory.

Do any of the others have video in?

Also, saying an ARM quad-core is four times as powerful as a RasPi is like saying it's 10 times as powerful as my desktop workstation... maybe true if you're comparing against the fastest ARM processor in any of the peripherals (I think there's one in the SSD), but clearly missing the point.  The RasPi ARM core represents only a tiny fraction of the compute power in the Broadcom VideoCore chip.

The BeagleBoneBlack I've also evaluated, and saying it has "quite robust OS support" is misleading.  Several important peripherals, including the SGX PowerVR GPU, still have no drivers for any of the available OS distributions.

Duane, I would definitely add Gumstix to the list. Together with Beagleboard they cleared the path for many of the recent open hardware single board computer projects. They certainly inspired us..

@CCarpenter0: ...that wouldn't be necessary if you guys would get a SPELL CHECKER here!!!

But where would be the fun in that?

No no no -- no one ever died from constructive proof-reading :-)

Of course, that wouldn't be necessary if you guys would get a SPELL CHECKER here!!!

@CCarpenter0: Trifocal - brain interface malfunction.  Sorry.  Repairs completed.

I was just joking with you -- I make slips all the time -- in fact almost everytime I press the "Post" button I glance at what I just posted and exclaim "D'oh!"

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.
