 Note that some of the single board computers may also have bus connections allowing them to be used both on their own and with one of the buses. Where this is possible, the card should be listed on both wiki category pages. Note that some of the single board computers may also have bus connections allowing them to be used both on their own and with one of the buses.

 +===== '​Alpha'​ Development Projects =====
 +
 +For projects that are still in the initial '​brainstorming'​ or '​Alpha'​ state, there is a separate [[:​dev:​start|Development]] section. This section is mainly for boards that meet one or all of the following criteria:
 +
 +  * Have limited distribution to a small group of testers
 +  * May require significant corrections to hardware errata - traces that need to be cut, patches, or subsystems that may not even work properly
 +  * Are '​stepping stone' boards on the path to a final design that has not been completed or (may never be completed!)
 +
 +===== Builder Individual Wiki Namespaces =====
 +
 +Individual community members wishing to document their board builds, experimentation,​ etc for the group may create an individual "​namespace"​ under their user name located within the "​builderpages"​ Wiki namespace. For a list of all such namespaces, please click [[:​builderpages:​start|here]]. Instructions on how to add yourself are located on the page as well.

Alternatively,​ the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) files for many of the boards can be found on the site and builders can order boards from the PCB fabrication vendor of their choice. For a list of currently available boards and who they can be purchased from, please visit the [[:​boardinventory|Board Inventory Page]].
