FindBoard is another single board computer database

Hackerboards.com single board computer database has been around for several years starting as Board-DB, but I noticed another one called FindBoard while browsing on Aliexpress with some more exotic boards.

Hackerboards’ database currently features 467 SBCs and MCU boards, while FindBoard has 453 boards. There are some overlaps, but also boards that are not found in the first database.

FindBoard single board computer database Qihua filter

Many of the boards on FindBoard are Linux-capable, but they are also some microcontroller boards as we can see from the screenshot above. If Chinese is selected, the “Buy now” will redirect you to Taobao, and if it is English they will be a link to an Aliexpress page.

FindBoard parametric search

There’s a parametric search function for FinderBoard single board computer database but it’s really only useful when selecting one single parameter because the system use “OR” instead of “AND”. So if select 01Studio and Linux as above, it will show results for 01Studio or Linux. There’s no option to let visitors submit new boards, so we have to rely on the maintainer who appears to be an Aliexpress seller.

Some of the brands I’ve never heard of include 01Studio, Cosofteck, Yahooom (亚博智能), Alientek (正点原子), and a few others. The site also reminded me that I previously wrote about Qihua and 9tripod products. Most people should probably stay away from those due to software support and the language barrier, but it might still be interesting to some.

Thanks to Onebir for the tip.

What I really miss is a site with descriptions of the SDK/Software support of such boards.

Specially on those claiming to boot linux. Most of the time you get an ugly image with some random old kernel version, etc, and is literally a nightmare to really know if peripherals are properly supported in the kernel, what to expect in terms of distros/sdks (yocto? buildroot?)

IIUC, Goldelico also maintains a list of boards (e.g. TI OMAP) with Letux OS support

Well, obviously maintaining a comprehensive table related to software is almost impossible. But at least mentioning what is supported and what is missing in the kernel for a given processor would help a lot.

Caveat emptor: There’s some inconveniently missing entries like how there’s category for the Tensilica Xtensa LX6 MCUs but none for the 32bit RISC-V MCUs even when they have the ESP32 products listed for each.

Otherwise, Nice to have. Thanks!
