How Does the Raspberry Pi Stack Up to the Competition

The Raspberry Pi family is one of the most popular development platforms around but it is not alone.

What's the Difference Between the Latest Embedded Dev Boards?

The landscape for embedded systems solutions has changed immensely over the past decade. Arduino, the open source computing platform, was the trailblazer for the DIY revolution. It not only brought an open-source hardware platform, but introduced a simple, easy-to-use software and IDE tool chain to the community. Another benefit of Arduino was its low cost, thus lowering the barrier of entry into embedded systems design. With many boards to choose from, let's look at the different capabilities for the leading options and the best ways for embedded developers to access user support.

Arduino, Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone?

I remember when building a computer used a batch of S100 boards. These were 8-bit machines that took up a rack and might even include a bunch of toggle switches and lights for programming. These days one can get started with boards that fit in your hand.

Three platforms have generated a significant following which means support, lots of software and hardware support. These include the Arduino, Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone
