Welcome!

This blog will be a repository of information that I compile about the Beagleboard.

The USB-powered BeagleBoard is a low-cost, fan-less single board computer that unleashes laptop-like performance and expandability without the bulk, expense, or noise of typical desktop machines.

OMAP3530 processor highlights:

  • Over 1,200 Dhrystone MIPS using the superscalar ARM Cortex-A8 with highly accurate branch prediction and 256KB L2 cache running at up to 600MHz
  • OpenGL© ES 2.0 capable 2D/3D graphics accelerator capable of rendering 10 million polygons per second
  • HD video capable TMS320C64x+ DSP for versatile signal processing at up to 430MHz
  • USB power via complete chip-set with minimal additional power-consuming logic

Expansion capability and power options to satisfy your imagination:

  • DVI-D for connecting digital computer monitors
  • Compatibility with a huge collection of USB peripherals including hubs, keyboards, mice, WiFi, Bluetooth, web cameras, and much more
  • MMC+/SD/SDIO interface for memory or wireless connectivity
  • S-Video out for connecting your NTSC or PAL television or wearable visor
  • Stereo audio in and out for a microphone and headphones or speakers
  • Power via typical USB chargers for cell phones from your laptop, from an automobile adapter, from batteries, or even from a solar backpack.
  • Be sure to view the blog on a regular basis, as I am constantly playing around with this board.
