This item is available for pre-order.

 The BeagleBone Black is the newest member of the BeagleBoard family. It's a lower-cost, high-expansion focused BeagleBoard based on the AM335x Cortex A8 ARM processor from Texas Instruments. This upgraded version features onboard HDMI and 512MB of RAM.


The BeagleBone Black offers higher performance and ready to use out of the box convenience. It includes all the necessary accessories in the box so you can spend more time programming and less time sourcing parts. Whether operating standalone or in conjunction with another computer, BeagleBone Black will provide developers 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 it easy to integrate into existing projects.

  • How does Linux make the BeagleBone easier to use than a microcontroller-based platform?
    The advantage of full-featured Linux is the Linux community. While the template-based coding of systems like the Arduino make it easy to copy-and-paste simple projects and a limited number of more complex libraries that don't have a lot of interaction, 20 years of Linux development have generated an extensive set of highly interoperable software that can be utilized and collaborated upon, without sacrificing the simplicity of doing something like toggling an LED or switch or reading an analog or I2C-based sensor.
    The first example I have is node.js, the server-side JavaScript language interpreter with a rapidly growing community. The evented I/O model enables both building highly scalable web servers and being responsive to the many sensors within your embedded system. As part of the shipping image with the BeagleBone, we are looking to provide the git-enabled Cloud9 IDE that allows you to edit node.js applications directly over your web browser by simply pointing it to the BeagleBone. While this technology will be in a highly-alpha quality state intended to communicate the possibilities for making a quantum jump in rapid prototyping with Linux when the BeagleBone is initially launched, we intend to collaborate with the Linux, Cloud9 IDE (, node.js, and BeagleBoard communities to evolve this to Arduino-like simplicity, without the need to install any development tools or understand Linux programming details. Development of the application library will be done entirely in the open and is awaiting launch until there is broad availability of the hardware to avoid any undue refactoring that might come from not having the proper collaboration and review.
