Comments on new article[edit]

  • The board is not actually produced by Texas Instruments. It was designed by Texas Instruments employees and is produced by a contract manufacturer for Digi-Key. It is a bit of a fine line, but other development boards produced *for* TI are generally available through TI for all TI distributors and with TI support. In this case, Digi-Key has worked with the contract manufacturer who built the prototypes for the TI engineers performing the design and is funding the board production, to the best of my knowledge. --JadonK (talk) 17:18, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
  • The OMAP3530 processor is not a chipset. The Pandora will use the same chipset as the Beagle Board, which is the combination of the OMAP3530 processor and TWL4030 analog companion device. --JadonK (talk) 17:18, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
  • 2D/3D graphics acceleration is provided via OpenGLES 1.1/2.0, and OpenVG 1.0 APIs, not just OpenGLES 2.0. --JadonK (talk) 17:18, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
    • OpenGL is not the same as OpenGLES. There is, however, GL to GLES translation software, such as DOGLESS. --JadonK (talk) 18:23, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
  • No mentions of the Always Innovating Touch Book (directly based on the BeagleBoard). There are also other POSIX and RTOS operating systems that run on the BeagleBoard, such as QNX Netrino. —Preceding unsigned comment added by JadonK (talkcontribs) 20:50, 23 January 2010 (UTC)
  • I think it isn't fair to only say that Raspberry PI has a faster GPU. I'm not certain that it is true, but the Raspberry PI is also an ARM11 and would be quite a bit slower for general processing (2-3X slower?). I work on the BeagleBoard project, so it isn't fair for me to comment on the main page, but I thought I'd point it out here. (talk) --68.61.13.123 (talk) 18:49, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Move request[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: moved. I find consensus here for a move especially given that the two oppose like comments have both been answered without the original opposer commenting further. Dpmuk (talk) 01:39, 17 January 2011 (UTC)



Beagle BoardBeagleBoard — Official name of the product is "BeagleBoard". Please see http://beagleboard.org or more specifically http://beagleboard.org/hardware for examples. gu1dry • ¢  01:20, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Comment: The page should not be moved for the sole sake of correctly matching how the company or manufacturer spells it. Per WP:TRADEMARK, "follow standard English text formatting and capitalization rules, regardless of the preference of trademark owners." However, the guidelines also read, "CamelCase may be used where it reflects general usage and makes the trademark more readable." Therefore, I would support a move if "BeagleBoard" is more generally used than "Beagle Board". Zzyzx11 (talk) 05:37, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
    • "BeagleBoard" returns 160,000 results via Google [1], while "Beagle Board" returns 64,500 results [2]. gu1dry • ¢  21:45, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
      • Some of those 160,000 use "Beagleboard." --Pnm (talk) 22:06, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose. I see the recent Wired article uses BeagleBoard, but it seems like reliable sources have more commonly used Beagle Board. --Pnm (talk) 22:06, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
    • Ars Technica refers to the product as the "BeagleBoard", [3], [4], [5], [6], [7]. Engadget refers also as the "BeagleBoard", [8], [9], [10]. And these are just a few examples; every other major technology news site I checked has referred it as the "BeagleBoard". gu1dry • ¢  07:14, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support' based on the evidence given (unless someone wants to present some counterevidence instead of vague statements).--Kotniski (talk) 11:53, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Beagleboard is the more commonly used/known, as previous rationale(s). a_man_alone (talk) 15:08, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support per above rationale. Jakew (talk) 15:42, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Similar products section[edit]

Why is this section necessary? I don't see the Iphone 4 article having a section listing similar products. Seems like hidden advertisements for the competitors. If anything, those products should be listed in the "See Also" section. AadaamS (talk) 13:04, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Good idea. I just cleaned it up, getting rid of that section and clearing out some other links to products that are not at all similar or related.
BTW, ran into this: http://www.ebv.com/en/products/categories/details/product/ebvbeagle-board.html Don't know whether it has a place in the article. --Guy Macon (talk) 08:51, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Good work! I don't have a strong opinion on whether or not to specifically include the EBV Bagle Board link. Without knowing the Wikipedia policy on the number of External links by heart I think there are already enough external links. The official Beagle Board website and a few more ought to be enough.

BeagleBone Black photos?[edit]

Could anyone please provide photos? Nemissimo (talk) 08:55, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

beaglebone graphics[edit]

the table claims the begalbone black has a powervr SGX530 like the other boards. The diagram at http://www.ti.com/general/docs/datasheetdiagram.tsp?genericPartNumber=AM3358&diagramId=43666 and the datasheet only say it has a "POWERVR SGX™ Graphics Accelerator subsystem". I found a few posts on the internet stating it has a powervr SGX530 but nothing I'd consider a reliable source. Plugwash (talk) 10:53, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

BeagleBoard-X15[edit]

I would like to add some new information about the new (currently yet to be released) BeagleBoard-X15. There is a substantial amount of confirmed specifications and I have booted a working pre-release board. Just a thought, might get around to it soon. Grokjtrip 17:28, 03 April 2015 (UTC)
