SanCloud has joined the BeagleBoard.org logo licensing family and enhancing the open hardware BeagleBone Black design with you love with more features than you thought possible. It still has a blistering 1GHz processor and like the BeagleBone Black, two 46-pin headers, micro HDMI for audio/video output, USB ports, Ethernet and other I/O features. The SanCloud BeagleBone Enhanced is an ultra-powered embedded computer that can (still) fit in a mint tin.
There are 2 variants available:
Both the ‘Enhanced Light’ and ‘Enhanced’ features are:
- 1G Byte onboard DDR3 RAM (double the BeagleBone Black)
- 3 additional USB ports
- Gigabit Ethernet
- Optional SPI flash for bootloader
Additional features for the ‘Enhanced’ :
- 6 axis MEMS accelerometer/gyro
- Barometer and temperature sensor
Both variants have the ability to add an on-board WiFi/Bluetooth card (uses 1 USB port)
WiFi/BT moduleThe design has been kept as close to the original form factor of the BeagleBone Black as possible to enable you to swap out the capes you already have. We have moved the power connector and serial connector to give an additional on board USB port and added an expansion header to allow for 2 USB ports to be passed up to a cape.
We are very proud of the way we have squeezed more onto an already impressive platform.
The kernel support ranges from 3.8 (Debian 7.11) to the latest 4.x (Debian 9.3). These can be found at:
To program please refer to the eMMC programming tutorial.
