The "Giantboard": Linux running on an ARM-based SBC, Adafruit Feather form factor (0.9" x 2.0")

This tiny board can be stacked with other Feather “wings” made by Adafruit (to accessorize it with more IO, like Display, Ethernet, etc):

Featured in Hackspace Magazine issue 34 (see page 40 in the free PDF):

This is sure to be majorly Alpha-quality, BTW! Dragonslayers only.

  • 500 MHz CPU
  • 128 MB RAM
  • MicroSD card slot for the OS

The Adafruit feather specification is here.

So it’s like a raspberry pi zero, with worse specs?

Yes. I wouldn’t buy one personally, however maybe somebody like a LORA developer might like something like this…

There’s a cute new tiny screen and keyboard (sort of like the Pocketchip) which attaches to the Giant Board now, but it’s all sold out, currently:

I’m going to go out on a limb and guess it provides a way to run Linux on a device that consumes less energy than a Pi Zero.
