Our hacker SBC survey is open through June 16. So far, the response is triple that of 2016, but that’s still a 1-in-50 chance to win one of 27 SBC prizes.

If you haven’t already voted for your favorite community-backed Linux/Android open spec hacker-friendly boards, you have five more days to check off your first, second, and third place choices from our recently updated catalog of 98 hacker boards, and answer a few more questions about intended applications in our 3-minute SurveyMonkey survey.

So far, we’ve received more than 1,350 responses — almost three times our 2016 total. That would still give you a 1-in-50 chance to win one of our 27 hacker board giveaways. The survey, which is co-sponsored by, concludes on June 16.

The prizes this time around include several BeagleBone models, including the new BeagleBone Blue robotics kit. Other giveaways include Arrow’s Qualcomm-backed DragonBoard 410c, the Gumstix Pepper DVI-D, ADI’s Intel-backed MinnowBoard Turbot Quad-core, and several Aaeon UP board models including the new UP Squared and one of the first UP Core boards, which has just launched on Kickstarter. We also have a handful of our sole non-Linux giveaway, the nifty Arduino Uno WiFi.

To learn more about our selection criteria, and to view new summaries of recent community-backed SBCs and fresh updates on older boards, see our catalog of 98 open-spec, hacker friendly SBCs. Both pieces also link to a feature comparison spreadsheet of the 98 boards.

We’ll be back early next week to report on the survey winners, as well as exam the trends in respondents’ priorities and application intentions. And we’ll start shipping out those 27 hacker board prizes to you in a few weeks.

But first…

…and maybe you’ll be one of our 27 lucky winners!
