What Board / Device Are Supports and which one is right for me.

The goal of this page is to help people choose what board to use.

For new comers to have access to a resource to find the board to suite thier needs.

Knowing what board you need is based on your project. And what you need out of it.

What ports on the device you need. How much cpu and ram, does the device need video or can it run headless.

These are the basic question to ask yourself before reviewing boards.

Each board has a link to its webpage for full specs.
