ZimaBoard is a hackable single-board server with Intel Apollo Lake (crowdfunding)

Folks have been using inexpensive single-board computers like the Raspberry Pi to create DIY home servers for about as long as inexpensive SBCs have been a thing. But the ZimaBoard is one of the first I’ve seen that’s custom made to be used as a DIY, hackable server. The ZimaBoard is a small, fanless computer […]

BeagleV is a RISC-V single board PC for $150 or less

Since the first Raspberry Pi launched almost a decade ago, there’s been an explosion of small, inexpensive single-board computers with ARM-based processors and support for Linux-based operating systems. The new BeagleV is a little different. It’s a small single-board PC with a RISC-V processor and support for several different GNU/Linux distributions as well as freeRTOS. With prices ranging […]

Banana Pi BPI-M5 is a single-board PC with Amlogic S905X3 quad-core Cortex-A55 processor

The folks at Banana Pi have been cranking out single-board computers for a few years that look like Raspberry Pi devices, but which sport different specs.
