BeagleBoard-xM delivers extra ARM Cortex-A8 MHz and extra memory with 512MB of low-power DDR RAM, enabling hobbyists, innovators and engineers to go beyond their current imagination and be inspired by the BeagleBoard community. Designed with the community inputs in mind, this open hardware design improves upon the laptop-like performance and expandability, while keeping at hand-held power levels. Direct connectivity is supported by the on-board four-port hub with 10/100 Ethernet, while maintaining a tiny 3.25 x 3.25" footprint.
As with previous BeagleBoard offerings, the BeagleBoard-xM is not intended to be a complete development environment, but rather a community-supported platform that can be used as the basis for building more complete development systems and as a target for community software baselines. Please consider purchasing an evaluation module (EVM) from Texas Instruments or one of the several commercial system-on-module vendors for the device with which you plan to develop if you are building a commercial product.
Note: These have been notoriously hard to get and we get very little margin from them. We are fortunate enough to have any stock of them.
Note: We are now shipping version Rev C of this board.
