New part on BeagleBone can escape BGA on top layer


#1

Basically this means you can get “Linux in a chip” on a 4 layer board (or less, if you’re crafty)

Interest in this for future projects?

This is incredible! Somehow they squished an entire computer into that small package :astonished:. I can’t imagine the number of chips BeagleBone had to buy in order to get the price down to $25 for a board. If anyone is interested, it looks like the PocketBeagle Kicad files are up on github here.

Oh yeah! I keep forgetting that they did the design in KiCad, that’s a bonus!

Very nice. The point of a development board is they are starting places. This would enable to open a schematic and just add/change what I need? SUITE! :wink:
