NEW! Gizmo 2
The Gizmo 2 is the second generation open source x86 development board presented by GizmoSphere. It provides the power of a high performance computer and the I/O capabilities of a microcontroller through the use of an AMD Embedded G-Series System-on-Chip.
Raspberry Pi Model B+
The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It enables people to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python.
element14 BeagleBone Black
The element14 BeagleBone Black is a full featured, internet enabled development platform that utilizes the low cost Sitara™ AM3358 ARM® Cortex™-A8 processor from Texas Instruments and runs a variety of OS including Debian, Angstrom, Ubuntu and Android.
The RIoTboard is an open source platform based on an i.MX 6Solo applications processor, using an ARM® Cortex®-A9 architecture. It is ideal for Android and GNU/Linux development and is supported by a community of Design Engineers and Application Developers.
The SAMA5D3 Xplained is a fast prototyping and evaluation platform based on the SAMA5D3 ARM Cortex-A5 microprocessor. The board offers a rich set of ready to use connectivity and storage peripherals along with Arduino compatible expansion headers.
