It’s strange to find an electronics hobbyist or computer fan that doesn’t know Raspberry Pi. This small device it’s a complete computer, with a low power processor and designed for applications. The truth is that there are a lot of possibilities inside of electronics world. Each day, lots of projects incude this device as its main piece.
I’ve been working since long with electronics and, in more “pro” circles, the Olimex modules are well known. They’ve their own versión of RasPi, but with lots more pluses. The modules I’m talking about are Olinuxino series, compared with RPi, they bring lots of improvements.
