What can these boards do?
- The Beagles are tiny open-hardware (you could make one yourself), open-software computers that plug into whatever you have around the house.
- Beagles mean big functionality in small packages because these little PCs can be used for all kinds of applications you've been tinkering with... and can handle many of the same tasks as your desktop PC.
- The Beagle family is happiest when helping students to learn programming, hobbyists to push the bounderies of DIY and developers move to production quickly without excess noise, expense or bulk.
This third-gen Beagle is powered by a 720MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor and includes power management, microSD card with Angstrom, built-in FTDI-based serial / JTAG and on-chip Ethernet.
BeagleBoard-xM delivers extra MIPS with a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, and memory with 512MB of low-power DDR RAM... plus a suite of peripherals.
The original Beagle runs on a 720MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor and has extensions for increased acceleration, graphics hardware and high-res video.
