BeagleBoard is a single-board computer SBC or OSHW (Open–source hardware) utilize the application processor SoC (System-on–a-chip) made by Texas Instruments OMAP3530 type to produce a performance like the ease of expansion follows a laptop. OMAP3530 SoC has subsystem with the features of an ARM Cortex–A8 MCU, “branch prediction” highly accurate and 256KB of L2 cache that can cipacu at speeds up to 600MHz (720MHz).
BeagleBoard boards sized 75cm x 75cm has a hardware interface that is compatible with standard PC, and easily connected via USB with a standard cable, DVI–D to HDMI adapter, DVI-D, or through connectors MMC / SD / SDIO. Port USB 2.0 high-speed OTG can be used to enhance the ability of these boards or for flexible expansion. BeagleBoard also has a PowerVR ™ graphics hardware that is capable of producing 10 million polygons per second.
Beaglebone Black is one of the single–board computer and simultaneously open source hardware, Beaglebone Black has had congenital Angstrom ARM Linux-based OS. with 512 MB of DDR3 memory, Ethernet on board allows Beaglebone Black can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable without having to add modules ethernet.
Beaglebone Black now has reached Production Rev B since the beginning of 2014. The changes in AM3358BZCZ100 processor that replaces the old processor AM3359AZCZ100 limited production.
