Single board computers, developments kits and other design hardware took the spotlight in our Product Centre in 2014.

The rise in popularity of these devices can potentially be attributed to the growing community of hobbyists and technologists, as well as several start-ups that offer an incredible array of innovations and products in fields such as communication, automotive, health and fitness, and many more. In addition, the competition among the industry's biggest players continues to hatch new devices that are faster, more powerful and more efficient.

In the following pages, we give you 10 of the most talked-about articles that featured some of the best and most innovative technologies released in 2014. Let us know what you think about these products by commenting below.

10 SBCs that are more powerful than Raspberry Pi

10 SBCs

More single-board computer (SBC) manufacturers are popping up on the market every year, bringing in tow myriad options. Some of the newer SBCs to hit the market are certainly impressive, given their respective price points, multi-core CPUs and gigabytes worth of RAM that rival some tablets and smartphones. That onboard memory is key in taking SBCs out of the embedded world and into mainstream usage. Gone are the days of blinking lights and command lines. Only through RAM can desktop-level software come to the embedded development world.

For your entertainment purposes, click the title above for a compiled roundup of just a few SBCs outfitted with more RAM that are currently on the market. The "Kleenex" of SBCs, the Raspberry Pi B/B+, was the baseline metric for RAM. Anything beyond that made the list. Even though the Raspberry Pi is first in popularity, it's hardly the most powerful board out there.
