Description

bblack-med.pngHigher Performance, Lower Cost
The BeagleBone Black features TI's Sitara™ XAM3358AZCZ100 microprocessor, which is based on ARM® Cortex™-A8 core with enhanced image, graphics processing, peripherals and industrial interface options such as EtherCAT and PROFIBUS. The board is equipped with 256Mb x16 DDR3L 4Gb (512MB) SDRAM, 32KB EEPROM, and 2GB embedded MMC (eMMC) Flash as default boot source. The board is also populated with a single microSD connector to act as the secondary boot source for the board and, if selected as such, can be the primary boot source. The BeagleBone Black supports four boot modes, including eMMC boot, microSD boot, serial boot, and USB boot. A switch is provided to allow switching between the modes.
Different from the original BeagleBone, the BeagleBone Black has an onboard HDMI interface to connect directly to TVs and monitors. Other features include a 10/100 Ethernet interface, a serial debug port, a PC USB interface, an USB 2.0 host port, a reset button, a power button, and five indicating blue LEDs. The BeagleBone Black has the ability to accept up to four expansion boards or capes that can be stacked onto the expansion headers. The majority of capes designed for the original BeagleBone will work on the BeagleBone Black.
