If you think about WiFi for Raspberry Pi without USB dongle, then you can throw away your idea or design.
On the website hackaday.io is WiFi module through HAT connector. The main component is ESP8266. Very popular WiFi chip.
This module can be connected to all types of Raspberry Pi (B, B+, 2, A, A+ and Zero).

CONFIRMED: Raspberry Pi 3 with Bluetooth Low Energy 4.1, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Quad-core 64bit processor (ARM Cortex A53) and 1GB LPDDR2-900 SDRAM.
Raspberry Pi 3 is roughly 50% faster than Raspberry Pi 2.
Priced at $35.

That Raspberry Pi 2 or Raspberry Pi Zero aren't last version of popular SBC is clear. Pictures of Raspberry Pi 3 were published on the Internet. Finally! Raspberry Pi 3 with Bluetooth Low Energy and WiFi b/g/n.
Another parts of SBC shloud be the same - RAM, Ethernet, USB and another. Maybe, processor could be changed - 64bit (ARM Cortex A53).

ST-LINK is utility for programming of STM32 microcontrollers. ST.com has ST-LINK only for Windows. Linux users use ST-LINK (texane).
One our member found another version of ST-LINK. QSTLINK2. It's program with GUI, but you can run it as terminal application.
QSTLINK2 can "read, write, verify and erase". It supports ST-LINK/V2 and ST-LINK/V2-1....
 
The OpenRex’s dimensions are 95mm long and 70 mm wide. Compared with the Raspberry Pi 2‘s dimensions (85.60 mm × 56.5 mm), OpenRex is larger and harder to replace any of the Raspberry Pi or Arduino board in small spaces.

On both sides of the board, are placed two GPIO headers which should be very familiar to any Raspberry Pi or Arduino users. If you would like to use a Raspberry Pi on steroids or a more featured Arduino board, OpenRex is the alternative of both of them.

The board features a series of built-in sensors including compass and accelerometer, gyroscope, humidity sensor, and temperature sensor. These sensors are a helping hand if you choose to build drones, robots or home automation applications.

The development board is 5V DC compatible and support two types of input power: through Power Jack or USB micro

Zephyr Project is a small, scalable real-time operating system for use on resource-constrained systems supporting multiple architectures. Developers are able to tailor their optimal solution. As a true open source project, the community can evolve the Zephyr Project to support new hardware, developer tools, sensor and device drivers. Advancements in security, device management capabilities, connectivity stacks and file systems can be easily implemented....

 


ST.com published a news about release CubeMX and AC6 (http://openstm32.org) software for Linux operating systems.
CubeMX is software for faster and easier development of projects with STM32. The program generates project with all needed libraries which you can modify for your needs. The project can be generate for Keil, IAR, SW4STM32 (AC6), TrueStudio and another.
AC6 is IDE based on Eclipse - now is available for everyone.

FriendlyARM NanoPC-T1 board powered by Samsung Exynos 4412 processor with 1GB RAM and 4GB eMMC flash was unveiled at the start of 2014 for $69. The company has now announced NanoPC-T2 with Samsung S5P4418 processor with 1GB RAM, and 8GB Flash, as well as WiFi and Bluetooth, as Gigabit Ethernet all of which were missing in the first version. NanoPC-T2 also has a power management chip, and a larger heatsink, meaning that it does not suffer from overheating like NanoPi2 according to FriendlyARM...


 


Do you plan to make any device for #wearable, sports or education? This project can much help.

You can find a lot of SBCs (single-board computers) but many of them is very similar.
PixiePro wants to find own users using a lot of unusual peripherals.

PixiePro contains i.MX6Q quad core ARM® Cortex™-A9 @1GHz, very interesting is 2GB 64-bit DDR3 RAM, 2x USB 2.0 and 1x micro USB OTG.

For connection to the internet you can use WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac 2.4GHz, 5GHz with 2x2 MIMO, Bluetooth® 4.2 (BLE) and UMTS/HSPA + 3G module.

PixiePro may be extended by extension board which contains 1Gbit ethernet, SDIO, 2 MIPI, SATA-II, another USB 2.0, CAN, SPI, 2x UART, 2x I2C and a lot of GPIOs.....
 


And here it is! If you heard about Nucleo-144, then it's true!
STMicroelectronics released new development board called STM32 Nucleo-144 (STM32 in LQFP144 package).
Extension of "Nucleo development board family" is totally logical step to possibility of using another peripherals because only Arduino connector is quite horrible for STM32 microcontrollers.
Nucleo-144 combines existing Nucleo board and Discovery boards partly. It contains Morpho connector, new Zio connector and Arduino connector.
Nucleo-144 includes ST-Link/V2-1 programmer and debugger...
