Latest edition of BeagleBone available in distribution

April 26, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
Distributor Mouser has announced that it is accepting orders for the BeagleBone Black from BeagleBoard by Circuit Co, a lower-cost, high-expansion focused BeagleBone featuring a Sitara AM335x Cortex A8 ARM processor from Texas Instruments.

BeagleBone Blacktakes popular features from the original BeagleBone, and adds additional features and performance with a faster processor, onboard HDMI and double the memory. The BeagleBoard.org platform has a track record of facilitating innovation from concept to market and BeagleBone Black's enhanced feature set enables developers to turn ideas into prototypes more easily than ever. Whether operating stand-alone or in conjunction with another computer, BeagleBone Black will provide developers with easy access to industry standard interfaces and a well-developed ecosystem of software and tools. The original BeagleBone's cape plug-in boards are also compatible with the BeagleBone Black, making easy integration with previous projects yet another advantage.

BeagleBoard.org develops low-cost, fan-less single-board computers based on low-power Texas Instruments processors featuring the ARM Cortex-A8 core with all of the expandability of today's desktop machines, but without the bulk, expense, or noise. BeagleBoard.org provides an open source development platform for the creation of high-performance embedded designs.
