PcDuino3 Nano, a serious competitor to the Raspberry Pi B +, for $ 39

    Raspberry Pi differs from existing debug boards in the market with a very low price and great functionality. But the rest of the players are not asleep, and gradually increase functionality, and reduce the cost.
    So at the end of September, Linksprite announced the PcDuino3 Nano, a debugging board built on a dual-core AllWinner A20 SoC, with an Arduino-compatible platform. This allows you to connect the Arduino expansion cards to the PcDuino3 Nano, as if it were an Arduino UNO. Additionally, there is a SATA connector for connecting HDD or SSD.
    PcDuino3 Nano is a smaller and cheaper version of PcDuino3, without a Wi-Fi module, LVDS, and I2C interface. The board does not support connecting Li-Po batteries, but another USB port is added compared to the older model.
