Starting at $79, Wandboard offers unique Linux and Arduino SBC, 512MB to 2GB DDR3, HDMI, a camera interface, Micro-SD slot, serial port, an expansion header, SATA, Gigabit LAN, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.

Projects include this cluster with a custom PCI-Express adapter carrierboard and small autonomous Sumo-robots for competition.




Slightly larger than a Raspberry Pi, HummingBoard offers a i.MX 6Solo + Kinetis K20 MCU, Linux and Arduino OS compatibilities, 1GB DDR3 RAM, HDMI, LVDS, parallel RGB, 3.5mm audio, USB and mini USB, and Ethernet, starting at $45.

As shown in the below video, the HummingBoard manufacturers are placing the lesser-known board in direct competition with the Pi.
