What is a BeagleBoard ?

The BeagleBoard is an OMAP3530 platform designed specifically to address the Open Source Community. It has been equipped with a minimum set of features to allow the user to experience the power of the OMAP3530 and is not intended as a full development platform as many of the features and interfaces supplied by the OMAP3530 are not accessible from BeagleBoard. By utilizing standard interfaces, the BeagleBoard is highly extensible to add many features and interfaces.

This site is for those who just bought BeagleBoard and don't know how and where to start. :-)

What exactly a BeagleBoard is ?

The Beagle Board is a low-power, low-cost Single-board computer produced by Texas Instruments in association with Digi-Key, designed with open source development in mind, to demonstrate the Texas Instrument's OMAP3530 system-on-a-chip. The board was developed by a small team of TI engineers. (for more than a brief introduction, go here )
