$35 OpenWRT SBC targets educational apps

Filed under

Belgian father-and-son startup DPTechnics is promoting its new open-spec DPT Board as an educational tool for budding embedded developers. Just as the similarly priced Raspberry Pi has been seeded in U.K. schools, DPTechnics is working with schools in Belgium to integrate the board in their curricula.

The fully open source “DPT Board” consists of the combination of a baseboard plus an “OpenWRT Embedded Module” COM (computer-on-module), creating a defacto single board computer (SBC). During its Indiegogo funding session, the COM is available separately for $20 or integrated with the baseboard as the DPT Board for $35 ($45 with cables). If the company fails to make its $6,000 funding goal after 27 days, it will continue with the project anyway, although ship dates would slip from the current delivery date, which is scheduled for the end of the funding period.
