APC Linux SBC

VIA Technologies getting into the low cost SBC market.. Heard about this a little while ago, but the exciting thing is Radionics are showing stock! I still have a Raspberry Pi on back order with them.  Supply chains.. nuf said!

VIA’s answer to the Raspberry Pi / BeagleBone

One “problem” is it comes flashed with Android and there’s no news yet as to whether VIA will be opening up the bootloader to allow other operating systems to run on the device.. Only a matter of time I guess. The other is it’s lack of GPIO pins, the only thing I can find on the headers might be an SPI bus (look at J3 in this APC pinout PDF).

On the good side: we have a VGA and HDMI connector.

For €50 + VAT… It would be rude not to get one!
