Lilbits: An ePaper dev board, a small(er) BlackBerry clone, and Amazon’s continued crackdown on pay-to-play reviews

Another day, another set of products disappeared from the Amazon website as the company continues to take actions against sellers that pay for positive user reviews. This time it looks like TaoTronics and Vava devices have been removed… which is unsurprising since they share the same parent company as RAVPower, whose products were also removed […]

HiFive Unmatched RISC-V computer board is now shipping

At first glance, the HiFive Unmatched from SiFive looks like just another mini ITX computer motherboard. But rather than an x86 chip, this system is powered by RISC-V processor. First introduced last fall, the board is aimed at developers rather than the general public, and with a $665 price tag, it’s a lot more expensive […]

AAEON introduces UP Xtreme i11 board with Intel Tiger Lake

The latest UP Board from AAEON is a mini computer mainboard that supports up to an Intel Core i7-1185G7E Tiger Lake processor with Intel Iris Xe graphics. I’m reluctant to call the UP Xtreme i11 a single board computer because not only does it lack built-in storage, but there are also dual SODIMM slots for […]

$59 Jetson Nano 2GB is NVIDIA’s cheapest AI dev kit to date

NVIDIA’s been shipping Jetson-branded single-board computers featuring the company’s processors since 2014. But with prices ranging from $200 to $1099, those devices haven’t really had the same widespread appeal as lower-priced alternatives like the Raspberry Pi line of single-board computers. Last year NVIDIA brought the price down to $99 with the introduction of the NVIDIA […]

This $10 single-board computer is faster than a Raspberry Pi 3

When the first Raspberry Pi computer launched in 2012, there was nothing quite like it on the market: a $35 single-board computer designed for education, home use, or development projects. These days cheap mini PCs and development kits are plentiful. But I was still surprised to see the Iconikal Rockchip 3328 single-board computer selling for […]

PicoRio dev board PC with a RISC-V chip will be a low-cost, open source Raspberry Pi alternative

The Raspberry Pi line of tiny computers have made a big splash in recent years. For as little as $35 you can get a fully functional computer capable of running a variety of (mostly Linux-based) operating systems. Some models are even cheaper. A bunch of competitors have entered the space, but like the Raspberry Pi, […]

ODROID-N2+ is a faster version of Hardkernel’s $63 single-board PC

A little over a year after launching a $63 single-board computer called the ODROID-N2, the folks at Hardkernel are giving the little PC a spec bump. The new ODROID-N2+ has similar specs and the same starting price. But it has a newer version of the Amlogic S922X processor capable of hitting higher speeds. While the […]

PICO-WHU4 is a mini PC with up to an Intel Core i7-8665UE Whiskey Lake processor

Aaeon’s PICO-WHU4 is a tiny computer that measures about 3.9″ x 2.8″ making it just a little larger than a pack of playing cards (or a Raspberry Pi). But it’s basically a full-fledged computer powered by a 15-watt, 8th-gen Intel Core processor. I’m reluctant to call this a single-board computer like the Raspberry Pi because […]
