You do get more for that higher price with the Technexion EDM modules,
namely 1.2ghz chips instead of 1.0, and parts that are industrial and/or
automotive temperature-rated rather than consumer grade.  On the other
hand, you generally can't buy Technexion modules one at a time.  Last
time I checked they were minimum order 10 pieces even from resellers
like Mouser and Digikey.

Another small-board imx6 possibility is the Hummingboard from SolidRun.
I now have freebsd running on a SolidRun Cubox-i4, so I expect no large
drama in getting it working on other SolidRun imx6 products.  Gonzo
ordered a Hummingboard recently, so we should know for sure some time
