SBC stands for Single Board Computers. These are generally computers that run a form of ARM software such as the Raspberry Pi and ODROID, though we welcome all SBCs and other devices such as the Terasic DE10-Nano, NES/SNES Classic, RS-97, or Bittboy.

Here at SBC Gaming, we like to use these devices to emulate various consoles, handhelds, and PCs. Our goal is to become a central source of information on all SBCs, accompanying images (pre-configured OS builds), and any other hardware or software related to those.

We are currently a work-in-progress as most of us admins work full time as well as try to manage and create content. If you need immediate help, then check out our Discord Server. Also, check out our subreddit r/SBCGaming.
