BeagleBoard BeagleBone® Blue

BeagleBone® Blue is a cost-effective and complete robotics controller built around the popular BeagleBone open hardware computer. Linux-enabled, Blue is community-supported and fully open-source. High-performance, flexible networking capabilities are coupled with a real-time capable Linux system and a compelling set of peripherals for building mobile robots quickly and affordably. BeagleBone Blue utilizes a pre-configured Wi-Fi® access point to make starting code development as simple as connecting a battery and opening a web browser.

BeagleBone® Blue features an Octavo Systems OSD3358 System-in-Package which incorporates a Texas Instruments AM335x Sitara™ ProcessorTPS65217C Power Management ICTL5209 LDO Voltage Regulator, a DDR3 SDRAM, and over 140 passive components.
