Do you guys have any favorites for use with an Array of USB connected FPGA boards and in the Future ASIC boards. I am looking for a low power device of course that has enough power to run the mining boards but does not have unnecessary computing/power draw. Something space conscience also perhaps.

I will. But If simpler openwrt routers can handle this task why Raspberry wouldnt?

As soon I get it will try with MPBM until a good soul ports cgminer for ARM

I will do that for testing purpose only, RPi too powerful to be only a host for miners...

Also worth considering is Asus's line of EeeBox PCs.

For example, the EB1012P (dual-core Atom) or EB1021 (dual core AMD E-450). Both are small (less than 1 litre volume), low-energy (less than 25W), and have 6 USB ports. The 'barebones' versions (no HD, no OS ... you provide your own) retail under $190; fully loaded versions are about double that.

These are overkill for an FPGA host, but have the advantage of decent-enough performance that they can actually be used for 'useful' work while mining. Here is a 1021 to get an idea:

Yup, same idea as the EeeBox.

What brand of OpenWRT router are people using  - I might play around with one of those for a bit but I want to get one that has had the kinks worked out as I am no hip on creating a build from scratch for one

i have a mr3420 with open wrt, but my small knowledge of linux makes it hard for me to compile an openwork with cg miner .....

openWRT runs by default but u will run into space constrains since RAM and memory ar damn low on that thing:(
