Sparky Single Board Computer (SBC) is a credit card-sized board that can be used as a standalone computer, in electronics projects, games, and also in many other applications. A true open hardware, community-supported embedded computer for developers and hobbyists. The Sparky SBC has all the functionality of a basic computer.

Sparky is a highly integrated SBC, based on ARM application processor. The Sparky SBC currently supports Linux and Android operating system. It is the best choice for developing customized products as it provides an open, strong and friendly system development platform. Some of the applications are Internet Of Things (IoT), Tablet, Smart TV, Net Book, Game Console, POS machine etc.

Sparky also provides the flexibility to use any of the Raspberry PI add-on boards currently available. we also offer the following add-on boards, like Piano Hi-Fi DAC, Volt AMP, Cheapo, GIGA dual Ethernet, Telecom Analog Shield and GSM Shield.

With over a decade of embedding experience, our team is constantly helping application developers to port their new and exciting software to our Sparky SBC.
