A single-board computer, commonly known as SBC, is a fully functional computer system that is constructed on a single printed circuit board (PCB). These SBCs contain all the necessary components of a computer such as a processor, memory, storage, and input/output (I/O) ports. One of the notable features of SBCs is their compact size, light weight, and energy-efficient design, which makes them suitable for various applications.
AI and Machine Learning: Some SBCs, like the NVIDIA Jetson series, are specifically designed for AI and machine learning applications. They provide the computational power needed for running neural networks and other AI algorithms.
Internet of Things (IoT) Devices: SBCs are commonly used for building IoT devices. Their small size, low power consumption, and GPIO pins make them suitable for connecting and controlling sensors, actuators, and other IoT components.
