Find the Best Microcontroller Board for Your Project with This Guide

March 17, 2016

Make: has published a thorough and detailed guide to selecting a microcontroller (or compact computer) board for Maker projects of all kinds. The most useful aspect of this guide might be the fact that the information is organized in such a way that it is easy to find the right hardware for a given application. A simple motion detector may require a different set of capabilities than a small home automation server, and Make: does a great job of displaying each board's strengths and weaknesses.

If you're in the market for a board to serve as the brains of your project, this guide is a fantastic way to begin weighing your options.
