When it comes to picking an electronics board for your DIY project, you have a ton of choices. You can use a Raspberry Pi, the C.H.I.P., an Arduino, a BeagleBone or countless others. The Maker has put together a search tool that helps you find what you need. With the guide, you can search by price, software compatibility, usage recommendations, processor speed and a variety of other options. It makes hunting down say, a Linux compatible board with Wi-Fi that's under $15 or the best board for home automation a lot easier. Once you click on a board, you can check out a synopsis of the board and a list of the technical details. If nothing else, the guide is a good starting point for your next project.
