Reference Design for BeagleBone Black

Version 3

    BeagleBone Black is a low-cost, open source, community-supported development platform for ARM Cortex-A8 processor developers and hobbyists. BeagleBone Black ships with the Debian GNU/Linux™ in onboard FLASH to start evaluation and development. Many other Linux distributions and operating systems are also supported on BeagleBone Black including:

    • Ubuntu
    • Android
    • Fedora

    BeagleBone Black's capabilities can be extended using plug-in boards called "capes" that can be plugged into BeagleBone Black's two 46-pin dual-row expansion headers. Capes are available for VGA, LCD, motor control, prototyping, battery power, and other functionality.
