Single Board Computers (SBCs) are a complete computer build on a single board with input/output, microprocessor, memory, form factor, and expansion site. The characteristics are core processor, speed, number of cores, power, cooling type, and ram. The core processors include Advantech, AMD (core, G-series, Geode, GX), ARMADA, ARM Cortex, Atom, Celeron, ColdFire, Core 2, Intel (Atom, Celeron, Core, LGA, Quark, Apollo, Pentium), Pentium, Rabbit, RK3288, Rochchip, TI Sitara, ULV Celeron, VIA Eden, Vortex, and Z180.
Core Processor: Identifies the microprocessor or processor technology that serves as the primary computational engine for a board or device.
Speed: The processor clock speed of the device’s central processors.
Number of Cores: The number of separate processing cores available within the device.
Power (Watts): Typically this rating indicates the nominal amount of power you would expect the device to consume during normal operation.
Cooling Type: Describes the mechanisms for aiding heat dissipation with which a product is equipped.
Size / Dimensions: The physical dimensions of the device. Given in X by Y dimension, in Inches (Millimeters).
Form Factor: Indicates a standard mechanical/electrical interface scheme to which a device conforms, if any.
Expansion Site/Bus: Enumerates interface busses/facilities provided by a device for general purpose communications or addition of functional blocks.
RAM Capacity/Installed: Maximum amount of RAM addressable by a device / Amount of RAM installed on a device as sold and shipped.
Storage Interface: Enumerates the standardized interfaces available on a device that are typically used for connecting to data storage media.
Video Outputs: Describes the video output format(s) of devices equipped with such a capability.
Ethernet: Indicates whether or not a device includes provisions for Ethernet communications, and supported link speeds for those that do.
USB: Indicates the number and standard of Universal Serial Bus interfaces for which a device has provisions.
RS-232 (422, 485): Indicates the number of RS-xxx protocol data ports implemented on a device.
Digital I/O Lines: Indicates the number of digital input/output lines the device is equipped with.
Analog Input:Output: Indicates the number of analog input and output channels available on the device.
Watchdog Timer: Indicates the presence or absence of a watchdog timer in the device.
Operating Temperature: Recommended operating temperature, typically given in a range or as a maximum. Exceeding these temperatures may affect performance or damage the device and other system components.
