Thumbsize PCB.





BBC has run a story on a device that is cheap, small and seems to have a lot of potential for the UAV world. It can run linux, has ARM11 700Mhz, GPIO, SD/MCC-card slot and HDMI. It's the Raspberry Pi.

If this actually comes to market, it can be an interesting option for cheap embedded linux in UAV.

  • One of the individuals working on the Raspberry Pi has been working on a side project, an IO expansion board for the Raspberry Pi. Awesome!


  • The word is,it plays Quake 3 on 1 watt of power.


    They are still shooting for a $25 USD pricepoint, with an ethernet jack for $35.  Are there any UAV tasks that warrant this kind of horsepower?


  • Well this is awesome! hope it works (commercially).  Want one.


    oh yeah DSL!  I use it to check scrapheap computers :D

  • Wow, this would be ten kinds of awesome; bookmarked.
    16 GB SD card can hold a full blown Linux distro; DSL comes to mind, seems almost made for this, actually.
