Reddit: [Shootout] Development boards?

Saturday 16th of May 2015 09:42:43 AM

With development boards/embedded SOC products like the raspberry pi becoming more mainstream and powerful these days, I'd like to propose a shootout of lesser known and alternative products, especially ones that you own and have a use case for. To keep it tidy, I'd like to propose the following format -

Product name

Price (in USD)

Pros

Cons

Freedom Factor (proprietary blobs etc. this isn't strictly necessary if you don't know)

[anything else, use cases, company ethics and so on]

Note that they don't necessarily have to be cheap, boards such as Nvidia's tegra development boards are fair game, and I'd really like to see a few esoteric and expensive ones, even if they're not popular.

I'd also request that you refrain from reposting, if a board you like has already been posted, just give it an upvote to show it's popularity and then any discussion points can go in that posts' thread.

I'll let someone else take the rpi2 for the karma. All posts are considered on-topic as long as the thing comes on a single board, it could be full eATX or the size of a usb stick, no limits. They should also be currently available.

  • Gallium3D's LLVMpipe Tacks On Another OpenGL 4 Extension

    Most often when talking of new OpenGL 4 extensions in Mesa it tends to be regarding the Intel Mesa driver given they're the company investing the most into the Linux graphics stack, followed by the Radeon and Noveau drivers. However, this week in Mesa is some love to the fallback/debugging software rasterizers.

FPGA add-on boards support Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black

Newark Element14’s new ValentFX Logi-Pi and Logi-Bone FPGA add-on boards for the Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black feature Arduino and PMOD hooks. We first covered the Logi-Pi and Logi-Bone Logi-Boards back in Sept. 2013 when ValentFX showed off prototypes at the New York Maker Faire. The Logi-Boards, which integrate Xilinx SPARTAN-6 XC6SLX9 FPGAs, and plug into the Linux-based Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black hacker boards, respectively, have now reached market, thanks to a partnership with Newark Element14.

AT&T to begin selling LG G Pad F 8.0 Android tablet on May 29

After releasing its own branded 8-inch Android tablet a mere two weeks ago, AT&T is giving itself some fresh competition. The mobile carrier has announced that it's bringing the LG G Pad F 8.0 to its customers starting on May 29. What's Hot on ZDNet The new model should not be confused with the LG G Pad 8.3, which, while being an older tablet, offers a slightly larger, higher-resolution screen and a faster processor. Rather, it's more of a bigger sibling to the LG G Pad 7.0 that was released late last year, coming with the same 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor (compared to the 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 inside the G Pad 8.3).

Review: Kubuntu 15.04 "Vivid Vervet"

This month has been quite busy for me with classes. Now that the semester is finally over, I have a little more time, and that means I have enough time to do a review. It has been a few years since I've reviewed Kubuntu, the officially-supported variant of Ubuntu that uses KDE. Moreover, Kubuntu now features KDE 5 (I know the KDE naming and numbering system has become a lot more complicated, so this is, as a physicist might say, an intentional abuse of notation) as stable for the first time, so I figured I should try this version. I tried it as a live USB made with UnetBootin. Follow the jump to see what it's like. (It should become progressively clearer through this review why there are no pictures.) Read more

Open source data integration with Karma

Karma is a free, an open source data integration tool that makes it easy to convert data from a variety of formats into linked data. I recently attended a half-day workshop on Karma with Pedro Szekely, our instructor. He started by warning us that he knows very little about libraries, but a ton about data. The files we needed for the workshop were on GitHub, if you’re interested in checking it out. You can follow the tutorial steps on the Wiki, and, of course, you can find Karma itself on GitHub.
