Choosing a development board for your projects can be a daunting task. Given the large number of development boards available today, it’s no wonder.
For those who don’t already know this, let’s first come up with a definition for development board.
A development board is a small circuit board containing either a microcontroller, microprocessor (or both) which supplies the necessary components and software for design and programming.
Most of us are familiar with boards like the various incarnations of Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and even BeagleBone. These are some of the most popular options among hobbyists and makers.
