Powered by the TI Sitara™ AM3358 ARM® Cortex™-A8 processor, the BeagleBone Black offers ample I/O and processing power for real-time analysis. The functionality of the Black can be enhanced with cape plug-in boards, named after the cape-wearing beagle, Underdog.
The BeagleBone Black delivers over 3 million Dhrystone operations per second and vector floating point arithmetic operations. It's capable of interfacing with all your robotics motor drivers, location or pressure sensors, and 2D or 3D cameras. It can also run OpenCV, OpenNI, and other image collection and analysis software to recognize objects in your robot's surroundings and interpret control gestures. Through its integrated micro HDMI or VGA and LCD expansion boards, the BeagleBone Black can decode and display various video formats using a fully open source software stack, and synchronize playback over Ethernet or USB with other BeagleBoards for creating large-scale video walls. If your interest lies in building 3D printers, the BeagleBone Black's extensive PWM capabilities, on-chip Ethernet, and 3D rendering and manipulation abilities can help you replace your underpowered microcontroller-based controller board and that PC in your basement.
Note: These are BeagleBone Black Compliant boards made by Element14. Even though they may not be manufactured by BeagleBoard, each BBB is officially recognized by them and are identical in both form and function. For more information, check out BeagleBoard's Compliant Program.
