What can a single board computer be used for? Aug 26, 2022

What is the difference between a single board computer and a motherboard?

The difference between a single board computer and a motherboard is that the components of a single-board computer, such as CPU, GPU, memory, and I/O, are all contained on a single board. On the other hand, the motherboard's sockets consist of the CPU, graphics card, and memory. While components such as the CPU and GPU can be changed on a industrial motherboard, such components cannot be changed on a single computer board because they are usually soldered to the circuit board. Typically, however, components such as RAM can be removed and upgraded, but major components such as the CPU are soldered in place and cannot be upgraded.

What can a single board computer be used for?

Embedded single board computers are used in a wide variety of applications and industries. Such uses include consumer, industrial, automotive, medical, commercial and military applications. For example, embedded SBCs are often used to power interactive kiosk machines because they have I/O ports that connect to various peripherals on the kiosk machine, and they are compact enough to fit in the compact machine in type housing. Additionally, they provide the capabilities needed to run applications that control kiosk machines. Embedded SBCs are usually embedded in devices because they are very energy efficient. They are energy efficient because manufacturers use low-power but efficient processors with extremely low power consumption. The power efficiency of embedded SBCs gives them an advantage in deployments where power efficiency is important.
