About the DeviceGuru Blog Network

DeviceGuru.com is the home of the DeviceGuru Blog Network, an independent blogging group devoted to new and emerging device technologies and applications.

Currently the DeviceGuru Blog Network network consists of three sites:

  • HackerBoards.com — publishes timely news and analysis regarding the latest hacker, maker, and developer friendly single-board computers (SBCs), computer-on-modules (COMs), development kits, and small, modular, programmable systems and embedded- or IoT- oriented gizmos built around them.
  • The LinuxDevices.com Archive — hosts nearly 15,000 news items and articles that were formerly published by LinuxDevices.com, but vanished from the web in 2012. This valuable record of more than a dozen years of early embedded Linux history became available for publication at the DeviceGuru Blog Network’s LinuxGizmos.com website 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. Lehrbaum’s first 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, Lehrbaum serves as editor-in-chief of HackerBoards.com and enjoys tinkering with Linux- and Android-based boards, systems, and Internet of Things gizmos.
