We have a new i.MX283 / i.MX287 SODIMM sized SOM, the CFA-10036:
Here are the features that set this module apart:
This module has a very low cost of entry. At the minimum level, all you need to use it is the module itself and a standard microUSB cable.
We also have a debug/prototyping board that adds wired Ethernet and USB A connectors, as well as a generous prototyping area:
For the initial production we have this as a project on Kickstarter:
CFA-10036 Open, Hackable, Linux + ARM Embedded GPIO Module

Very nice board layout! I like the use of the low inductance decoupling caps! I presume this helped save you stacking the multiple caps the reference schematics call for (33uF total)?

Thank you for the kind words.

Here is the part we are using:
Capacitors | details for LLL185R71A104MA01# | Murata
I had researched getting low impedance out of the MLCC caps, and using multiple vias is supposed to help reduce the impedance quite a bit. I think having multiple vias along with the "long side" (0306, instead of 0603) capacitors gets the most performance out of the fewest parts.
Here is one paper for reference:
