Embedded Systems on Chips (SoC) have been around now for a few years… And it lets us in enters do amazing things today that 10 years ago seemed like impossible.
An example of such devices would be the Arduino or Raspberry PI systems.
Because of the SoC, the support chips are less and less as the generations grow.
Using the Raspberry Pi Boards, we here at BLCOMP will setup a remote system with DNS Servers connected to the World Wide Web (WWW) connected to sub nets hosting a few servers with a few workstations. By using the PI’s we will cut power costs and curb down time as well as always having to do untimely updates with other systems.

We could use all different types of SoC boards out there, but we here like the Pi board. It seems to offer a lot without adding cost to it, like some other boards out there. Also the Pi board is hot right now and getting parts (if needed) for it is a lot easier than others. The documentation seems to be the same out there… 3rd party only seems to be key.
Again just to note: This project can be done Many ways with Many SoC boards. We just selected the Raspberry Pi SoC board due to the nature of the project.
We will be updating this project as it progresses…
