BeagleBone Black Rev C – 4GB
Out Of Stock
The BeagleBone Black is a powerful single board Linux computer with plenty of I/O, micro HDMI, 512MB DDR3 RAM, 4GB onboard flash memory, and a 1GHz processor. The BeagleBone Black ships with Debian Linux pre-loaded on the board's flash. This can be changed as it is an open board, other Linux distributions like Ubuntu or Android will happily work.
This is the Element14 version of the board – it is exactly the same as the standard BeagleBone with the exception of the silkscreen on the board. Element14 partnered with CircuitCo (the original manufacturer of the BeagleBone) to help offset the huge demand vs. supply.

Why would anyone choose this over a Rasp pi 3 ($50CAD) ? Or a Banana pro (with sata $70CAD), or a bit more expensive a Odroid-XU4 (8 core 2Gb $120) ? Is there something this board has that the others doesn’t ? It seems with the 512M onboard and the 1GHz its one of the least spec’d and slowest of the lot, and not the cheapest. Is there a reason why you’d choose this over a different baord ?
Chris @ BCR –
In a multimedia application, yes, the BeagleBone black is at a disadvantage. When it comes to the IO side of things, the BeagleBone tends to come out on top. The IO lines on the Black are much faster (and there are a lot more of them) than any of the SBCs listed above. The Black is definitely geared towards connected electronic devices while the Pi (and others) tend to be geared a little more towards the Multimedia/Computer side of things. There are ways to get some of those features onto the Pi (and others) but typically you will notice the cost advantage switch to the Black’s favor.
