Other features of the new BeagleBone Black Rev C include 4GB of eMMC built-in storage instead of the Rev B’s 2GB. For storage for your files, OS of choice and media, together with a microSD card slot for further expansion when required.
The BeagleBone Black Rev C development board is also equipped with two 26-pin headers, and other I/O features allowing you to create a variety of projects for prototyping, education and development purposes.
Adafruit explains the BeagleBone Black Rev C board comes with : “a mini-B cable for powering it up ASAP.
