    Default Rack Mount solution for Pi's and Beaglebone Blacks

    Can anybody suggest a good 1U or 2U rack mount foundation to host 2 Pi's and 2 BeagleBones?

    It will be awesome if it has internal USB power, but it's not a deal-breaker.

    I know I will need to customize it, but just looking for some shell components to start off from.

    This may be overkill, but here's one: https://bitscope.com/product/blade/?p=about

    Depending on how "sparse" you want to start out with, use a 1U/2U pull out shelf. I tie lots of different "toys" to them in my sound racks.

    2 RU Blank Panel and velcro. I found the blanks are expensive though. I use 1/8" ABS plastic in my rack (cut on table saw, rack mounting holes located and drilled). The pi3 case velcros on the back, along with my fm transmitter. Mines bigger though, since it holds all that plus a F48, and power supply. The velcro allows me to pull the pi easily for maint/upgrades.
