What are the enhancements to the BeagleBone® Black?

Onboard WiFi & Bluetooth

The SanCloud BeagleBone® Enhanced 512 and Enhanced 1G variants have an onboard WiFi/Bluetooth card (using 1 USB port). The design has been kept as close as possible to the original form factor of the BeagleBone® Black. This enables you to swap out the capes you may already have.
Additional onboard USB port

We have moved the power connector and serial connector to give an additional on board USB port.

 

Expansion Header + Added USB Ports

We have added an expansion header to allow for up to 2 USB ports to be passed up to a Cape.
