BeagleBoard presentation

Pt 1855
Pt 1856
Slides are up from the Embedded Systems Conference “Build Your Own Embedded System” by Gerald Coley and Jason KridnerBeagleBoard via mightohm. The $150 USB-powered Beagle Board is a low-cost, fan-less single board computer… it’s an open source hardware project that was funded by Digi-Key and TI with design contributions from their community. As far as open source hardware projects go – this is one to watch.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Hmm. I look at that, wondering what to do with all the computing power on the small board. “Mini Tivo” comes to mind, though a SATA interface would make that a bit easier. Has anybody done an Android port?

    An Arduino or Pic24F already handles hardware gadgets needing a bit of TCP and SD Card memory for less $$.

    Perhaps others can post applications making use of the extra 590Mhz?

  2. I saw a site that had a link to a Andriod port for BeagleBoard.
    Found it here:
