Low cost and power consumption combined with powerful Networking and Storage interfaces make the ESPRESSObin board a perfect fit for a wide variety of deployments often neglected by other SBCs such as:
- Home & office networking
- Media streaming
Among others, here are some use cases for the ESPRESSObin board:
- NAS-SATA-WI-FI -> By connecting the device Sata interface to Hard drives, you can stream via wireless or Ethernet.
- Video Camera Monitor -> Reuse old USB cameras and turn them into power-conscious IP cameras by connecting them to ESPRESSObin and streaming content directly to your computer.
- Plex Media Server -> Ethernet or Wi-Fi streaming from hard drives, USB sticks to connected television sets in multiple rooms.
- Stacking switch cluster -> Create power efficient storage units by connecting storage and Ethernet. Compute clusters for Torrent server applications.
- IoT Gateway -> Turn the ESPRESSObin into an IoT Gateway by connecting LORA, BLE, ZigBee, Zwave and other protocols through a variety of interfaces supported by the board.
