About the DeviceGuru Blog Network

DeviceGuru.com is the home of the DeviceGuru Blog Network, which currently publishes LinuxGizmos.com and the LinuxDevices.com Archive.

  • LinuxGizmos.com features timely news and analysis regarding the latest embedded hardware, software, protocols, and standards that are being incorporated into embedded, mobile, and Internet of Things applications. As its name implies, LinuxGizmos offers a unique focus on open-source OSes, such as Linux and its derivatives, and showcases new devices and device categories that exemplify the use of these technologies. The site’s target audience includes professional developers, makers, students and educators, early adopters, product strategists, and technical decision makers.
  • The LinuxDevices.com Archive contains nearly 15,000 news items and articles previously published by LinuxDevices.com and spanning a dozen years of early embedded Linux history. This precious asset became available in December 2013 by virtue of a generous donation to the Linux community from Quinstreet Inc.

The DeviceGuru Blog Network was founded in 2007 by Rick Lehrbaum, an entrepreneur, innovator, and well-known blogger in the embedded devices market. He co-founded Ampro Computers in 1983, authored the PC/104 standard and founded the PC/104 Consortium in 1991, launched LinuxDevices.com in 1999, and guided the formation of the Embedded Linux Consortium in 2000.

Rick’s first single-board computer (SBC) design was a 1977 wire-wrapped 8080 affair that was programmed with an on-board hex keypad, and was selected for inclusion in a never-published Byte Magazine book named “The Art of Computer Hacking.” His second SBC creation was the original Z80-based Ampro Little Board, in 1983. These days, he serves as editor-in-chief of LinuxGizmos.com and enjoys tinkering with Linux- and Android-based boards, systems, and Internet of Things gadgets.
