Beagle Boards

The BeagleBoard is a low-power open source hardware single-board computer produced by Texas Instruments in association with Digi-Key and Newark element14.  It is community-supported aimed at developers and hobbyists. The board designs and schematics are published under the CC BY-SA license.

  • The Beagles are tiny open-hardware (you could make one yourself), open-software computers that plug into whatever you have around the house.
  • Beagles mean big functionality in small packages because these little PCs can be used for all kinds of applications you've been tinkering with... and can handle many of the same tasks as your desktop PC.
  • The Beagle family is happiest when helping students to learn programming, hobbyists to push the bounderies of DIY and developers move to production quickly without excess noise, expense or bulk.
