No Raspberry PI – Asus Tinker Board – Review – Pinout





Early 2017 , ASUS has announced similar board like raspberry PI 3 and named it as “ASUS TINKER BOARD”, Keeping internet of things in mind added BLE and WIFI to the board.

I personally too excited , because of trust issue. Starting from my 1999, I have been using Asus mother board for my PC and Laptop, never faced any hardware issue, so I am a big fan of Asus. Tough I had not ordered this board yet, but definitely ASUS Tinker board will be a great hardware of the future.

Hardware configuration details of asus tinker board.

 

And likely Raspberry PI, There is 40 PIN GPIO header pin out for DIY electronics and Internet of things projects. and the dimension wise it is compatible with all the raspberry PI board, that means you can use any raspberry pi header with this.
