One of our users (Olzeke) found this prototyping board meant for Parallax's BASIC Stamp. It breaks out the 24 Stamp pins to through hole pins. Makes soldering easy. The ARMstamp inner 24 pins are compatible with this board. You can buy these prototyping blank PCBs from a Canadian supplier PCBoard.ca for $1.95 each.
The PC-104 standard though getting old, still has an active presence in industrial control. ARM micro-controllers continue to get faster and more powerful with speeds up to 600 MHz and 1MB of on chip memory. We've been asked to look into the possibility of replacing some of the low end x86 boards with processors such as the RT1062.
If it's not one thing it's another. About 10 days ago PayPal decided to change something and our orders were getting rejected. Some persistent customers tried every browser they could, different credit cards, and nothing got through. Calls into PayPal did not help much, and A2hosting was out of their depth as well. Luckily Kym from ozEworks got us back up.
Sometimes you want to monitor a running ARM BASIC board. Now a PC can do it for a while, but sometimes it goes to sleep, sometimes Microsoft tries to update it, sometimes who knows. So an alternative would be to use a more predictable device, such as a Raspberry Pi. They are cheap, very low power and predictable.
