Nothing to do with AVR but I just thought this was amazing...

That's an entire Linux SBC and it's the size of an SD card!

    Wow...  Wonder when it might become available?  Does anyone know its specs?

It looks like he soldered it to a mother board to add a uSD card, HDMI connector, Eithernet connector, USB connector, etc.

So at the end of the day I'm not sure it is much smaller than an RPI.

That said, it is still very cool!

Concur on cool though still practical.

A use case is embed an MPU into an instrument, gateway, etc. (headless, RS-485/CAN/LVDS/10BASE-T1L/etc); minimal essential is CPU, bootloader NVM, operating system NVM plus "some", RAM, peripheral pads, PMIC.

Microchip Technology has Arm Cortex-A5 modules with forthcoming Cortex-A7.
