I finally had some time to clean and organize my electronics/craft workbench in the house. I have been wanting to add a computer so I can program the SBCs on the bench instead of having to bring them into my office to change code. I have a 15" monitor that I removed from my travel trailer and it has been my go to for SBC output. I found an inexpensive monitor arm that would work and hooked up an ASUS stick computer that I have had for a few years that I bought to try and use on my CNC. It is enough to run Visual Studio Code and the Arduino IDE. I might see if it will run LIghtburn in Gcode mode.
I also purchased a Labrador all in one board that has been gathering dust since it was to be on the bench to replace a bunch of other test equipment.
EspoTek Labrador Board
All-in-one USB Oscilloscope, Signal Generator, Power Supply, Logic Analyzer and Multimeter
I cannot give a critique yet but will do when I actually use it! It is for light use and I will still have to bring out the big guns when needed.
I am using the computer now to write this. It will be nice to be able to do quick searches and downloads on a desktop instead of the phone. I might experiment with using a Rpi or Pine SBC as the main benchtop computer. Just depends on how much of a pain it might be.
