Low-cost, Zynq-based Snickerdoodle boards available for purchase on Crowd Supply once more; new models added

The amazing “snickerdoodle one”—a low-cost, single-board computer with wireless capability based on the Xilinx Zynq Z-7010 SoC—is once more available for purchase on the Crowd Supply crowdsourcing Web site. Shipments are already going out to existing backers and, if you missed out on the original crowdsourcing campaign, you can order one for the post-campaign price of $95. That’s still a huuuuge bargain in my book. (Note: There is a limited number of these boards available, so if you want one, now’s the time to order it.)

 

In addition, you can still get the “snickerdoodle black” with a faster Zynq Z-7020 SoC and more SDRAM that also includes an SDSoC software license, all for $195. Finally, snickerdoodle’s creator krtkl has added two mid-priced options: the snickerdoodle prime and snickerdoodle prime LE—also based on Zynq Z-7020 SoCs—for $145.
