BeagleBone Black Wireless, custom IoT card, from distribution

November 11, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Distributor Mouser Electronics is taking pre-orders for the BeagleBone Black Wireless. Customizable for IoT designs and based on the open source BeagleBone Black hardware design, BeagleBone Black Wireless is a high-expansion, maker-focused open hardware computer created by the BeagleBoard.org Foundation.

BeagleBone Black Wireless is a credit card-sized Linux computer designed for Internet of Things (IoT) applications, that maximizes connectivity by exchanging the 10/100 Ethernet port from BeagleBone Black for a Texas Instruments WL1835MOD 802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz Wi-Fi module with Bluetooth capabilities. The board offers an HDMI output, serial debug port, PC USB interface, USB 2.0 host, and reset and power buttons. The board also retains the 4 GBytes of onboard eMMC memory with Debian Linux pre-installed, allowing BeagleBone Black Wireless to boot in 10 seconds, and enabling engineers to start developing through a web browser in less than five minutes using a single USB cable.

 

BeagleBone Wireless is built on an Octavo OSD3358 system-in-package (SiP), which integrates a Texas Instruments TPS65217C power management IC (PMIC), Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 microprocessor, and TL5209 low dropout (LDO) voltage regulator, plus affordable design tools that maximize access for customized variations. BeagleBone Black Wireless is fully software, hardware, and mechanically compatible with BeagleBone Black. The Wireless board is also compatible with all existing BeagleBone Black capes and accessories for hardware expansion, integration, and peripherals, including capes for the Seeed Grove System and MikroElektronika mikroBUS clickBoard system.
