BeagleBone Green board gets plug and play connectors

The wait is over !. The highly anticipated BeagleBone Green, a Linux-based development board from BeagleBoard.org and Seeed Studio is now being shipped by Mouser Electronics. . The BeagleBone Green updates the popular BeagleBone Black, retaining the AM335x 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor from Texas Instruments.

Rather than keeping the BeagleBone Black’s HDMI connector and chip, the BeagleBone Green contains Seeed Studio’s plug-and-play Grove connectors. With this new board, Seeed Studio looks to help developers and designers capitalise on Seeed’s modular Grove system and the board’s general purpose I/O (GPIO) expansion capabilities.      

The board provides 512MBytes of DDR3 RAM, 4GBytes of eMMC flash storage, microSD slot, and two PRU 32-bit microcontrollers, plus a 3D graphics accelerator and NEON floating-point for enhanced multimedia and user experience.

The board also includes 65 possible digital I/Os from the dual 46-pin headers, 10/100 Ethernet, USB client for power and communications, and a USB host.

Complementing the BeagleBone Green, the Grove Starter Kit for BeagleBone Green contains 10 Grove modules and three step-by-step guides to help makers quickly build projects with the BeagleBone Green. The BeagleBone Green also supports the same expansion boards (called capes) as the BeagleBone Black.      

The board ships with Linux and BeagleBoard’s Cloud9 integrated development environment (IDE) on the eMMC, and also supports Debian, Ubuntu, and many other distributions of Linux; Android; and other open-source operating systems.
