With the pcDuino3B development board you can run a fully-functional operating system, such as Linux and Android. You can also use it as a base for your next robotics project, by adding Arduino shields. But the board comes with a lot of features built-in, including an IR receiver, SATA host, USB-OTG, LVDS LCD interface, MIPI camera interface, 3.5mm audio output, battery header, WiFi, and Ethernet. You can see why Sparkfun, the company that makes the board, describes it as a “‘kitchen sink’ of development boards.”
Like a standard computer, you’ll need a keyboard, mouse and display to get it running. It runs on a 5V (2A) power supply, and an API will let you access all of the standard functions that you would expect, using simple Arduino-style language. Quickstart guides and tutorials are available online.
You can buy the pcDuino3B from Sparkfun for just $59.95.
