SanCloud IoT & Embedded System Customers

A powerful, fast and feature-rich Single Board Computer that can perform many of the functions of a desktop PC with on-board sensors, wireless connectivity, lots of I/Os and the size of a mint tin.

As part of the BeagleBoard.org® family, SanCloud brings to you the BeagleBone® Enhanced – an enhancement to the open hardware BeagleBone® Black design you love, with more features than you thought possible.

Why choose the BeagleBone® Enhanced?

The SanCloud BeagleBone® Enhanced (BBE) range of Single Board Computers are low cost and easily deployable with user-friendly configurable options. BeagleBone® technology is speeding up and growing exponentially with millions of boards sold globally.

  • The SanCloud BeagleBone® Enhanced range still have a 1GHz processor and like the BeagleBone® Black offers two 46-pin expansion ports, micro HDMI for audio/video output, USB ports, Ethernet and other I/O features.
  • The BBE comes with onboard WiFi, Bluetooth, additional onboard USB port and an expansion header enabling 2 USB ports to be passed up to a Cape.
  • The BBE’s can perform many of the functions you would expect from a desktop PC and are utilised as an IoT device / embedded system in a diverse range of business-critical, educational and hobbyist applications:

Industrial Monitoring & Controllers

Smart Buildings

Connected Vehicle & In-Car Systems

Robotics

Home Automation

Digital Signage

Education

Smart Buildings

Aerospace Systems

Media Players

Linux Servers

Development Platforms

Beagleboard.org® Supported

The SanCloud BeagleBone Enhanced board is fully supported and licensed by BeagleBoard.org®

This means the same software images from BeagleBone® that work on the BeagleBone® Black will also work perfectly on SanCloud’s BeagleBone® Enhanced boards. It also ensures you can expect the same high quality as you have come to expect from BeagleBone® and support for numerous Linux distributions.

What are the enhancements to the BeagleBone® Black?

Onboard WiFi & Bluetooth

The 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 2 USB ports to be passed up to a Cape.
