Chip Pro - Open Source Linux Module 1GHz / 256MB WiFi/BT @ $16

Another vaporware from makers of C.H.I.P., the infamous $9 PC. Available Dec. 2016

This is allegedly an open source platform with schematics and datasheets. You can also buy barebone SoC (CPU+GPU+256MB DRAM) on 14x14mm 289-BGA package for $6.

Btw. in this article Olimex claims BOM for C.H.I.P. is worth $20. In mid 2015 Olimex was quoted $4.80 @ 5000 for Allwinner R8 SoC and $16 for the SoC with 512 MB RAM and 8GB NAND Flash module, so this Next Thing development board and SoC with DRAM are actually very good deal. Next Thing promises, they can provide any quantity from 1 to million.
