How to Choose the Right Platform: Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black This article was originally posted at Michael Leonard’s blog and has been re-posted here. There are already many articles out there comparing Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and BeagleBone Black; this is not one of those articles. I believe it is clear that Arduino is in a different league than the Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black, and serves an entirely different purpose. What I was looking for and couldn’t find was a comprehensive article that would summarize all of the pros and cons of the Raspberry Pi and the BeagleBone Black, and what each platform is best suited for.

The Truth About Open Source Hardware Business Models After some time now, the Open Hardware Ecosystem and Business sector gained some significant traction. An excellent presentation by Mathilde Berchon was recently release at the open hardware summit, trying to summarize the increasingly interesting diversity and numbers of the OSHW business. Here’s some interesting passage in the talk: The number of open hardware startups is increasing, mostly since 2007. Before this date, about only one company per year was launched […] Since 2007, the number of new open hardware startups is growing pretty fast.It takes an average of two years to go from a project to a product.

PIC32-PINGUINO-MX220 Open Source Hardware Ultra low-cost 32-bit PINGUINO MAPLE ARDUINO like development board ARDUINO-UNO like board with PIC32MX220F032D. Generally this board outperforms ARDUINO-UNO in regard to hardware capabilities as you can see from the table below: * require additional chip FT232 or ATMega with USB ** hardware allows power down to 10 uA operation for hand-held battery apps The only Pinguino shortcoming compared with Arduino is the smaller community and the less projects available ready for use.

As is typical with a new design, the process started slowly. After setting up the pick and place machine and reflow oven, a small batch of five units was assembled by the automated process. These units were tested in order to validate the process before proceeding with the remaining units. Unfortunately the first five did not test well. A few minor soldering problems were corrected, and they still didn't test well.
