Developers, hobbyists and electronic enthusiasts that enjoy using the BeagleBone development boards may be interested in a new piece of hardware that has been created by San Cloud based in Manchester in the UK.
The new SanCloud BeagleBone Enhanced development boards are available in both a Light, Enhanced and are both available with the option to add wireless and Bluetooth support. Thanks to the addition of a RealTek RTL8723 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1/4.0 LE module.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about the SanCloud BeagleBone Enhanced range of development boards and learn more about why they have been created, their features and functionality. New features include :
– 1 Gigabyte DDR3 RAM – twice the amount of the normal BeagleBone Black
– Gigabit Ethernet
– Extra USB ports, 2 on board plus 2 via expansion header
– Optional serial NOR flash for boot loader
– Optional 6 axis gyro + accelerometer (we will fit 9 axis ‘+ compass’ if target is reached)
– Optional barometer pressure and temperature sensor
San Cloud the development team behind the new boards explain more :
Since early 2015 we have been working on the SanCloud BeagleBone Enhanced board. We have listened to user feedback of what people would like to see on an Enhanced BeagleBone and combined this user wish list with our own requirements and produced the SanCloud BeagleBone Enhanced platform. We have produced several prototype versions and this has allowed us to iron out hardware and software issues and to fully test the new SanCloud BeagleBone Enhanced board. As a result, we now have fully functional hardware and software drivers for all the new features and are ready to go.
The SanCloud BeagleBone Enhanced board is fully supported and licensed by beagleboard.org. This means the same software images from BeagleBone that work on the Black will also work on the SanCloud BeagleBone Enhanced board. It also ensures you can expect the same high quality as you have come to expect from BeagleBone.
