Single-board computers are extremely compact computer systems which contain all the elements necessary for operation - such as a processor or ROM – all on a single circuit board. They are ready for immediate use and can be operated even without prior programming skills or electronics knowledge. Thanks to comprehensive information in technical manuals and the very active online community, entry into the world of programming is today particularly easy. Whilst single-board computers have been used since the end of the 1970s predominantly in industry in the fields of metrology, control and automation, today they are available for development work in other field of application. The possibilities for this are practically unlimited. Applications can be developed for weather stations, robot controllers, lighting installations or VHF radio transmitters. Many additional components such as an Ethernet port are available as plug-in circuit boards to extend the functions. We can supply you with a suitable entry-level starter kit for you to get into the world of microcontrollers.
