What is a Single Board Computer
A single-board computer (SBC) is a complete computer built on a single circuit board, with microprocessor(s), memory, input/output (I/O) and other features required of a functional computer. Single-board computers were made as demonstration or development systems, for educational systems, or for use as embedded computer controllers. Many types of home computers or portable computers integrate all their functions onto a single printed circuit board.

ASUS has identified a clear DIY/maker market trend and we intend to create a big impact with our little board, so we've crammed in loads of tech while keeping our profits to a minimum — it's our little contribution to the DIY world.
