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.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
