Stk1160 on ARM devices

Inbetween there are many Linux friendly boards and products out there for usually less than $200.
Here are three lists of Linux friendly boards and mini PCs.
Please report in a comment if anyone uses the STK1160 with success on one of these products.

Ezequiel mentions that *any* Linux board with a USB 2.0 capable host
controller and enough RAM will work fine with STK1160 devices
Currently there are some USB related problems on the Raspberry Pi. Read more on this post: However, if the USB has some bandwidth limitation (some USB 3.0 are showing this) then it can have problems with the STK1160. 

The STK1160 was successfully tested on these boards by Ezequiel:
  • ISEE IGEP v2 (Texas Instruments SoC)
  • Plathome Openblocks AX3 (Marvell SoC)

(Another RPI would be nice :-) Also, I would love to have a non-ARM
non-x86 board, like a MIPS or something like that."
