One of Seeed Studio's motto is “Grow the Difference”, which has now become part of the culture of the company. This is not just reflected from what we are doing in popularizing open source culture, but also from our products. Ever since the company funded, we are continuously creating our own open platform to differentiate from the existing one such as Seeeduino vs Arduino. This time we would like to introduce a new member of those unique products----Seeed Studio Beaglebone® Green.

Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green is a joint effort between BeagleBone.org® and Seeed Studio, and it is based on the open-source hardware design of BeagleBone® Black.
Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green is a low-cost option that provides the compact footprint, numerous interfaces, and expandability of BeagleBone® Black while extending the development environment with on-board Grove connectors which work with the Seeed Grove ecosystem. Furthermore, Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green is fully compatible with BeagleBone® Black capes.
Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green comes with a Debian image installed on the on-board 4GB 8-bit eMMC flash storage. You can connect the board to a 5V power supply or the USB port of your PC to easily power it up.
The main change is replacing the HDMI interface with 2 Grove connectors. Grove is a great invention by Seeed, it is a modular standardized connector prototyping system by which you are able to build applications without soldering and jump wires. With the rapid development of the grove system, more and more sensors, actuators, displays are joining the grove family, all of them are integrated with the standard Grove connector so that you can connect the Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green to them with a simple cable. So far we have produced more than 30 Groves that work well with Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green, and the number is increasing. Apart from that, we also changed the 5V barrel to be a micro USB host, so that you can power the board more conveniently.

Fully compatible with BeagleBone® Black
Despite the changes we made, Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green is still fully compatible with BeagleBone® Black and applied with all the BeagleBone® Black capes. Even though Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green has all these advantages, we did not increase the price, actually, the price of Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green is much cheaper, it may be the most low-cost BeagleBone® in history. What we want is to provide a BeagleBone® that is not only more powerful and easy-to-use but also reachable to most people. Please don’t hesitate to choose Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green if you need a BeagleBone® for your project, I am sure you will like it.

Detailed instructionsSeeed’s wiki provides detailed instructions for first-time users to get started. But it seems like that it is a lack of community support and you can’t find a lot of projects using this board, which might be a shortage especially for beginners who have no ideas what this board can do.
Solid board with powerful featuresSolid board with powerful features and high quality. Will be a good choice if you are a developer mainly focus on IoT.
perfect productGreat customer support, well-packaged parcel, and perfect product!
Planning to use it for an indoor air quality projectReceive my parcel 3 days after placing the order which was faster than I expected and everything is in good condition. Planning to use it for an indoor air quality project!
high cost performanceLike Raspberry Pi, this board is open-source hardware but is more flexible. And for me, I like the two Grove ports which make it easier to connect it to other Grove sensors - And it is 11 dollars cheaper than Beaglebone Black!
