Raspberry Pi VS Arduino VS Cubieboard VS Udoo Vs Others !

Gone are the days when you needed a big box just to perform simple calculations, watch some pictures or play some songs. Now we have Single Board Computers that are as big as your credit card, Which can do a lot more than the top of the class Pentium III Computers, And they are taking over the world too, Because of the tons and tons of support on these boards over the internet. If you want an MP3 Player, Earthquake Senor, Gate Opener, Security System, Movie Player, Watering System, Lights Manager ? Any board below will be ready to do any of these tasks in less than 5 Minutes. Below is the Comparison Of the Top 5 Most Popular boards in the market, And why are they popular ?

PcDuino "Mini PC + Arduino" =

You wanna know why I put this on the top of the post ?  Is it because I Forgot It in the last post ? No !
Is it because I am too broke to buy it ? (Yes) No !

PcDuino : Small Yet Smart !
It Is Because Of all the fanfare its been getting in the past few months, This little Chip, Which looks like Raspberry Pi for a Bit, Is the new choice of developers. For 60 $ , This little chip is giving you 1GHz A10 ARM Cortex-A8 Processor, 1GB RAM, Top Of The Line (For That Kind OF Budget) Storage and GPU and so many Ports that your connectors can have a gangbang with it !

Specs :
CPU: 1GHz ARM Cortex A8
GPU: OpenGL ES2.0, OpenVG 1.1 Mali 400 core
Onboard Storage: 2GB Flash, SD card slot for up to 32GB
Video Output: HDMI
OS: Linux + Android
Extension Interface: 2.54 mm Headers compatible with Arduino
Network interface: RJ45 and USB WiFi Dongle
Price : 59 $

Arduino : Complexity Simplified :

Here's the board who started all this. The Great Arduino, Perhaps the most popular one board PC in the world, Is definitely on every Hardware Lover To-Buy List. Why Was this Chip So Hit ? Mainly because it was the first of his kind, Also it is easy to Deploy and Attached to External Parts, Don't Forget It's Shield's (Attachable Sensors) ! It comes in many ( 16 )  different Versions and prices, for example Uno, Mini, Nano, Due Etc... We'll Put up the specs for Arduino Uno, Since it is the most popular version of the series.

Specs :
CPU: ATmega328 16 Mhz
GPU : Inbuilt
RAM : 32 KB
Onboard Storage : N/A
Video Output : 14 Digital I/O Pins (6 PWM outputs )
OS : N/A
Extension Interface : 14 Digital I/O Pins (6 PWM outputs )
Network Interface : Attachable Shields
Price : 30 $

Raspberry Pi Model B : New Version, More Power -

The Raspberry Pi is an amazing device that packs a lot into a small space. It's simplicity has amazed me from time to time. If I could describe this board in one word, it would be "Awesome", It's a complete learners package, Ideal for people who don't want to spend a lot on boards but on the same hand want to broaden their knowledge !

CPU : ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz 
GPU : VideoCore IV GPU
RAM : 512 MB
Onboard Storage : No.
Video Output : RCA, HDMI
OS : Backtrack, Kali Linux, XMBC , ETC.
Extension Interface : GP10 Connector.
Network Interface : Ethernet Port.

CubieBoard 2 :
Cubie Board 2 : A Small Work Station !
CubieBoard Revised =

CubieBoard 2, Based on Allwinner A20 SoC,
same as the original CubieBoard, Is another small chip computer produced by CubieTech, Is great for Guys who want Power and Affordability In the same box. The only bad thing about it is that it is manufactured in china, and some people have been complaining to the build quality of the board. My advise, If you have 60 $ to spare, GO with the PcDuino.

Specs :
CPU : ARM® Cortex™-A7 Dual-Core
GPU : ARM® Mali400MP2, Complies with OpenGL ES 2.0/1.1
RAM : 1GB DDR3 @960MHz
Onboard Storage : 4GB internal NAND flash, up to 64GB on SD slot, up to 2T on 2.5 SATA disk.
Video Output : HDMI, VGA, SPDIF
OS : ?
Extension Interface : 96 extend pin interface
Network Interface : 10/100 ethernet, optional wifi
Price 60 $

UDOO : The Child Of Raspberry Pi And Arduino =

A Mini Computer worth 110 $, Yes you read that right, Udoo is the most expensive =Mini PC in our today's post, And Believe me, it is a bang for the buck !
Marketed as having 4x Power Of Raspberry Pi + 1x Power of Arduino Due, And having Double Board for more multitasking power, This board tops our rating chart. We Published an article about this board Here, Its Free to read and share so go visit it !

CPU : Freescale i.MX6 ARM Cortex-A9
GPU : Complies with Complies with OpenGL ES 2.0/1.1
Onboard Storage : Not Specified .
Video Output : HDMI and LVDS + Touch (I2C signals)
OS : Every OS supported by Arduino and Raspberry Pi !
Extension Interface : 76 fully available GPIO, Sata, Camera Input.
Network Interface : RJ45 Ethernet, Wifi
Price : 110 $



Beagle Bone Black : Refined Power =

BeagleBone Black is a $45 MSRP community-supported development platform for developers and hobbyists. Boot Linux in under 10 seconds and get started on development in less than 5 minutes with just a single USB cable. Some People even say that this board is capable of beating the Raspberry Pi, Is it true ? Lets Look At the specs :

Specs :
CPU : AM335x  1GHz Cortex - A8
GPU : 3D Graphics Supported, SGX530
RAM : 512 MB DDR3
Onboard Storage : 2 GB
Video Output : HDMI
OS : Linux
Extension Interface : UARTO Access
Network Interface : RJ45 Ethernet.
Price : 45 $

Stellaris M4C123G Launchpad : Cheap Yet Useful =

Pay attention Bitches ! What we have here is an 12 $ expansion Board, With very little (But Useful) Feature's, Manufactures By Texas Instruments, Is something new on the table. We don't have the specs (yet), But this board has so much expansions board available that you can design an autopilot for your car by this 12 Bucks board.

So How Was This Post ? Love/Hate/Spot A Mistake ? Whatever It is, Please Leave it on the comment section below, Also Like us on Facebook, Twitter And Google+ So you don't get left out,And Do Not Forget To Answer the quiz, Lets see which board has the largest following !
