I'm currently building a prototype WiFI module to add both WiFi and an application platform to a client's existing product range.
This lets us add things like MQTT, a web browser, Bluetooth, internet radio and remote firmware updates to the product.
I'm currently prototyping using Intel Edison because:
1. It's powerful. Running Linux with 1GB Ram and 4GB eMMC
2. It's small! Nice small form factor.
3. It's easy to use and integrate into existing products.
4. It looks professional.
However it is expensive at £40 a shot.
Can anyone recommend a similar embedded linux module? It must run linux, have WiFi and Bluetooth (A2DP at a minimum).
It must also look professional on a daughter board inside a product.
I could just chuck an R-PI in there, but that wouldn't look great! Not a professional finish!
There's r-PI Compute moule as well, but it's big and doesn't include WiFI or Bluetooth.
Then there's R-PI Zero - it's smaller but it still has things like HDMI connector which is pointless in my application.
So is there anything to compare with the Intel Edison for power and form factor?
