What can these boards do?
- 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.
Ultra-tiny-yet-complete open-source USB-key-fob computer. Incredible low cost, slick design and simple usage, making PocketBeagle ideal for beginners and professionals alike.
Complete robotics computer ready to fly or rove. Flexible networking and rich set of robotics-oriented peripherals make building mobile robots quick and affordable.
The top performing power-users’ dream board with a core tailored for every computing task and a highspeed interface for every connectivity need.
