Jun 12, 2017 — by Eric Brown 1,326 views

[Updated June 26] — Our 2017 hacker SBC survey ran from June 1 through 16. The response was more than 3x that of 2016, offering a 1-in-50 chance of winning one 26 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.


Note: This survey has ended and the results are in. Read our detailed analysis of the results.

As in the past, the 2017 Hacker SBC Survey was co-sponsored by The prizes this time around included several BeagleBone models, such as the new BeagleBone Blue robotics kit, plus Arrow’s Qualcomm-backed DragonBoard 410c, the Gumstix Pepper DVI-D, and ADI’s Intel-backed MinnowBoard Turbot Quad-core. There were also several Aaeon UP board models, including the new UP Squared and one of the first UP Core boards, which recently launched on Kickstarter. Additionally, there were a handful of our sole non-Linux giveaway, the nifty Arduino Uno WiFi.
