BeagleBoard presentation

Pt 1855
Pt 1856
Slides are up from the Embedded Systems Conference “Build Your Own Embedded System” by Gerald Coley and Jason KridnerBeagleBoard via mightohm. The $150 USB-powered Beagle Board is a low-cost, fan-less single board computer… it’s an open source hardware project that was funded by Digi-Key and TI with design contributions from their community. As far as open source hardware projects go – this is one to watch.

  1. Hmm. I look at that, wondering what to do with all the computing power on the small board. “Mini Tivo” comes to mind, though a SATA interface would make that a bit easier. Has anybody done an Android port?

    An Arduino or Pic24F already handles hardware gadgets needing a bit of TCP and SD Card memory for less $$.

    Perhaps others can post applications making use of the extra 590Mhz?

  2. I saw a site that had a link to a Andriod port for BeagleBoard.
    Found it here:
