A little bigger than the Raspberry Pi, but a lot more powerful (and expensive!)


The flagship single-board computer from the Raspberry Pi Foundation is still going strong. The Raspberry Pi has created a whole ecosystem of SBCs (Single Board Computers), and while the Pi -- especially the new Pi 4 B -- is more than enough for most applications, sometimes you want something that's more powerful. The Aaeon PICO-TGU4 offers just that. Must read: Don't make this common, fatal iPhone or Android mistake At 3.94" x 2.84" (100mm x 72mm), this board is a bit bigger than a Raspberry Pi 4 (3.37" Coming back to budget, these boards are not cheap.
