The born of the first Raspberry PI computer in 2012 created a new market for low cost ARM based single board computer (SBC), initially for teaching purposes; but nowadays, after an amazing increase of computing power while maintaining costs, makes possible their use for many purposes. This incred-ible evolution allows their use for many tasks, including certain data processing workloads. A cheaper, scalable, modular and more energy efficient system is proposed for onboard FTI con-soles. It provides also an easy to use frontend dynamic web interface, usable from a laptop or a tablet when A/C is on ground. Several services will be provided with this solution, like online/offline monitoring through FxS da-taservers, data recording and so on. Anyway, almost every service necessary onboard can be run in these devices, which will be hosted in a distributed environment.
