Boxing marked {OK} is available separately from same vendor.

Target Hardware

Small, cheap boxes. Ok if e.g. box is missing (can be added later), but not if way off our hardware requirements, or if design goals are clearly different (e.g. price tag above $200).

Promising

Upcoming devices looking promising, but not yet available for general sale.

Unsuitable

  • Odroid: Too powerful (requires noisy fan or too expensive to ship heatsink)

  • Raspberry Pi: Requires non-free blob to boot (and pretty weak when using Debian - Raspbian is not Debian)

Devices too expensive not listed here (that'd be a looong list).

See libreplanet processor review for list of processors, pricing (where found), features including Treacherous-capability, FSF Hardware Endorsement Criteria capability etc.

Some benchmark comparison between different processor famillies, which might help in deciding which platform would best fit the requirements can be found here

Hardware list from the PlugApps project here. Good overview of differences in SheevaPlug-class devices.
