Single Board Computer of the Year


The "Open Source" requirement was removed in a previous year.

I've voted RPi4B, whilst the RPi400 does appeal to a lot of people, the RPi4B allows for using a better keyboard, & has sound.

I'd say it's probably the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W. However, since that is not on the list, I'd say it is the 400. There are a lot of situations where having fewer parts to get lost or inventories helps. However, it meets very different needs from pretty much all the other SBCs on the list.

What about Nvidia Jetson Nano, taken the removed Open Source requirement. Great for AI algorithms.

The RazPi 4B has several design enhancements as they added extra ram, increased the frequency and added an extra line to the psu to facilitate overclocking. Those running with the later supply are clocked at 1.8Ghz, up from 1.5Ghz. But afaik, they didn't bump the model number.

mk1 &mk2?

I would say the RPI 4 . With 4 cores and 1Ghz+, it fast enough to pass as a light desktop now. Drive two displays (or none). True 3.0 USB, Gigabit ethernet, and Wifi make it a little powerhouse. Memory to suit just about any application (1, 2, 4, and 8 GB). Boot from SD or an attached USB drive. Lots of GPIO and many 'hats' to extend the platform and a great community for support. Winning combination. Now that they have introduced the PICO, attach that and the possibilities are endless. Again, you have great software/user/technical community and documentation for hardware application programming. Can't beat it. I have a RPI-400 too, but it has really one purpose -- a desktop type machine, whereas the RPI-4 can be that, plus used in many other applications like attaching to a moving robot of some sort (access by wifi interface), or whatever. I can see the RPI-400 would be great for class-room STEM work (like we used C-64s back in college for electronics lab).

For light work, it does as a Desktop. But if you ask the RPi to work, or think, it's a different story. There's an NXP chip with 16 Arm cores, and that may be more up to the mark, if someone gets a machine out with it.
