A new Beagle! BeaglePlay development board #BeaglePlay @beagleboardorg

The next Beagle is here!

BeaglePlay offers a simplified Beagle development experience and connectivity beyond what is possible with today’s WiFi or Ethernet. Based on a Texas Instruments AM625 quad-core, 64-bit Arm Cortex-A53 processor, BeaglePlay brings more toys to the game than just processing power. Ready to use with pre-programmed on-board flash, full-sized HDMI connection, built-in WiFi and Gigabit Ethernet, all the bases are covered.

BeaglePlay goes further with software-defined, long-range, low-power wireless to work with its BeagleConnect Freedom companion device or another BeaglePlay up to 1km away! For reliable, wire-based connectivity, BeaglePlay adds single-pair Ethernet that can provide power and data over just two wires over long distances.

For simplified expansion, BeaglePlay can work with over 1,000 different add-ons, without any custom wiring, using mikroBUS, Grove and Qwiic/STEMMA Qt sockets.

  • 2GB (1Gbx16) 1600MHz 3200 Mbps DDR4
  • 16GB eMMC flash with high-speed interface
  • MicroSD card slot
