The PhidgetSBC3 is a Single Board Computer with an integrated PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8.

At its most basic, it can be thought of as a Phidget that you connect using a network cable instead of USB.

The PhidgetSBC3 also provides six high-speed ports that allow you to use normal USB Phidgets over its network connection. This can extend the effective range of a Phidget from USB’s maximum of 15 feet, to anywhere that your network reaches.


  • Power Supply

  • 2m Cat-5e network cable

  • A hardware mounting kit


Product Features

  • Runs Debian 7.0 with access to the full Debian package repository.
  • 128 MiB DDR2 SDRAM
  • 1 GiB Flash
  • Web based configuration and monitoring interface.
  • Run custom programs on-board for autonomous operation.
  • 6 USB 2.0 High Speed (480 Mbit/s) ports with support for webcams, Phidget USB devices, flash drives, etc..
  • Integrated PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8.
  • Ethernet port enables use of attached Phidgets from another computer anywhere over the network.
  • Realtime clock with battery backup.
  • Wi-Fi Adapter sold separately  

The PhidgetSBC3 exposes an easy to use interface for setting up and running custom applications on-board. This allows the PhidgetSBC3 to operate autonomously, without the need for a graphical interface or a remote connection at all times.

For more advanced users, the PhidgetSBC is an embedded computer that runs Debian GNU/Linux. We provide full shell access via a built-in SSH server, access to the full Debian package repository, and all of the standard command line tools expected on a modern Linux system.

An integrated PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8 allows you to connect devices to any of 8 analog inputs, 8 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs. It provides a generic, convenient way to interface your PC and PhidgetSBC with a wide variety of devices and it operates exactly the same way as an external PhidgetInterfaceKit.
