Brian and John,
Since the RPi 3A+ is unobtainium at this point we have no way to test. Our product plan does not currently contain any plans for the 3A+, however, it seems to meet the specs for dedicated applications. If someone wants to develop an open source case for it and provide experiences, we would be glad to share them.
The DRAWS driver(s) does not add much overhead, so this is more of an application question. Does the desired application run satisfactorily on a 3+ in 512MB?
Yes, but there is no easy software to do that at this point. This is not an application that we have in development, but invite open source developers to create such an application. G4KLX's DummyRepeater is a possible starting point.
Remembering that the XC3006 was a special run for the XLX folks, it is not available for ordering. The XLX group does not recommend the Raspberry Pi as a platform for their ambed daemon, though it has run in such a configuration (it is not supported).
