      Versatile single board computer

      Designed for computing hobbyists, the Asus Tinker Board is a single board computer that can do everything you'd expect from a desktop computer, with the capability to be embedded as a controller for a range of devices.

      Perfect for connecting a range of external devices, the Tinker Board has four USB ports as well as a HDMI 2.0 connection, so that you can easily connect a keyboard, mouse and monitor just like you would to a standard PC tower. The HDMI 2.0 port supports 4k resolutions – perfect for setting up a personalised media suite.

      Straightforward setup

      To power your Tinker Board, all you have to do is connect a micro USB charging cable – just like an Android phone charger. And for storage, all you need is a microSD card, so that you can choose the amount of storage that suits your needs.

      So that you can get online and add internet connectivity to your projects, the Tinker Board has a LAN Ethernet port as well as built-in WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity.

      Well built unit, very much faster than a Raspberry Pi 3. Can be used as a desktop PC for everyday computing so long as you are happy using Linux, ( which I am).
      Firefox loads and is usable in about 15 seconds as compared to nearly 2 mins on RPi 3
      Tinker OS needs some smartening up and Android further development but software does develop so long as the hardware is solid

      Better media hardware acceleration than other boards of its kind (Odroid xu4, raspberry pi etc).
      Community is still very limited. Hopefully it'll grow quickly!

      - CPU speed nearly matches the best of the direct competition (Odroid Xu4)
      - twice as much memory than Rpi3
      - on-board Wifi, worked perfectly with my BT access point
      - analogue audio output directly on board
      - Linux OS provided by ASUS worked nicely without any tweaking or configuration
      - colour coded GPIO pins
      - powering the board via pins on GPIO header works well (no need to use micro usb connector)
      - software for using GPIOs with examples is stored on the Linux OS image
      - Linux kernel source code publicly available (v 4.4.16)
      - size of the board is the same as Rpi3 and mounting holes are also compatible
      - provided heat sink is too small and the CPU gets too hot when load is high on all cores.
      - no link pointing to the Linux OS image is provided (not even in the included booklet). But fortunately it can be found via internet search.
