The 400 Series cameras are much more forgiving about hardware specification than previous RealSense cameras. They can work with any Intel or ARM processor, and the main requirement is just to have a USB 3.0 connection. This flexibility widens your options when choosing a single-board computer.
I do not have data yet on boards that are confirmed to work with D435, but the aforementioned flexibility means that any board that has USB 3.0 and an Intel or ARM processor should be a safe choice. So I will offer a couple of suggestions based on your budget.
UP CORE / UP SQUARED CELERON
Up boards have a history of working excellently with the older RealSense camera models R200 and ZR300. The Up Core was officially recommended by Up for use with the D435's predecessor the ZR300, and they sold the ZR300 in their own online store at one point.
Thank you for the very quick response!
In the end we have chosen the following product:
It was above our budget, but it has 4 USB 3.0 ports and we are planning on plugging 4 cameras into each one.
I'm very glad that you found a product that suits your needs!
The specification of your chosen board says that of the 4 USB 3.0 ports, three are full USB 3.0 ports and one is a USB 3.0 OTG (On The Go) type port which has a smaller USB connector because OTG is intended to enable the connection of full USB 3.0 devices to mobile devices (hence 'on the go'). You will therefore likely need to plug a USB 3.0 OTG adapter dongle into that port and plug the fourth camera into the other end of the adapter. The one I used with the original Up Board to connect an R200 camera to it looked like this:
I see, I was scratching my head about those USBs. I only saw 2 blue ports in the picture. Thank you for clearing that up!
