TI Unleashed the Revolution (Palm Sized) – BeagleBone

BeagleBone is a new development board from TI in the BeagleBoard Series. This brings nearly the same power of the other Beagleboards right into palm of your hand.

This board contains the AM335x Family of Sitara Arm(r) Cortex-A8 processor.

Here are some vitals about this board:

  • Board size: 3.4″ x 2.1″
  • Processor: 720MHz AM3358 Family of Sitara Arm(r) Cortex-A8 processor
    Link: http://www.ti.com/am335x (Ref Manual)
  • Memory: 256-MB DDR2 RAM
  • USB: 1-port USB 2.0 host, 1-Port USB Debug + Serial Terminal using FT2232
    Single cable development environment with built-in FTDI-based serial/JTAG and on-board hub to give the same cable simultaneous access to a USB device port on the target processor
  • Ethernet: Integrated 10/100 Ethernet
    On-chip Ethernet, not off of USB
  • Expantion: 3.3-V 2× 46-pin peripheral with multiplexed LCD signals and battery-control expansion headers. Industry standard 3.3V I/Os on the expansion headers with easy-to-use 0.1″ spacing
  • Shipped with 2GB microSD card with the Angstrom Distribution with node.js and Cloud9 IDE
  • Easier to clone thanks to larger pitch on BGA devices (0.8mm vs. 0.4mm), no package-on-package memories, standard DDR2 vs. LPDDR, integrated USB PHYs and more.

Have a look the the Current Beagleboard Flyer to compare with the other boards.

If you are wondering where to plug in the display then worry not there is a DVI-D board that gives the DVI monitor port and the audio connections.

Here is a video that show it all:

We can wait to grab of these – Hope it would be same for you too 🙂
