BeagleBone Blue

Description

BeagleBone™ Blue is based on the extremely successful open-source hardware design of BeagleBone™ Black, a high-expansion, maker-focused, community-supported open hardware computer, created by the BeagleBoard.Org Foundation.

BeagleBone™ Blue combines the high-performance flexible WiFi/Bluetooth WiLink™ interface of the BeagleBone™ Black Wireless and the robotics capabilities of the Robotics Cape from Strawson Design. BeagleBone™ Blue has onboard 2 cell (2S) LiPo battery management with charger and battery level LEDs, 8 servo motor outputs, 4 DC motor drivers, 4 quadrature encoder inputs, a wide array of GPIO and serial protocol connectors including CAN, a 9 axis IMU and barometer, 4 ADC inputs, a PC USB interface, an USB 2.0 host port, a reset button, a power button, two user configurable buttons and six indicating LEDs. Built on Octavo Systems’ System-In-Package that integrates a high-performance TI ARM processor and 512MB of DDR3, BeagleBone™ Blue boots Linux in around 10 seconds and gets you started developing through your web browser in less than 5 minutes with just a single USB cable.
