Looking for small embedded hardware


Hi!

I am looking for a small/tiny embedded (ARM) board that can run linux. I need to fit it into a tight place. Can you make a recommendation?


Preferences:
1 - Is similar to "Raspberry Pi 2" or "Cubieboard 2" in terms of CPU power and RAM.
2 - Has to be smaller than raspberry pi (about half size or smaller)
3 - Offers an option to boot from nand flash
4 - Does not have many connectors attached (should have holes in the PCB for soldering)


VoCore is an excellent example except for point 1 (not powerful enough).

Haven't played with them, but considering it: cloudBit

Have used and wasn't too impressed, but they work: GumStix

Thanks for posted. I bet they'll make such a Linux computer the size of a watch

Hello,
Are you exactly looking for a System-on-Module or a single board computer?
