Description

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.

Note

101020013 Grove - RTC is not compatible with Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green as it requires 5V.

102020083 Grove - High Precision RTC works in 3.3V and compatible with Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green.

 

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.

    Nice upgrade w/significant differences from BBB.
    I appreciate the BeagleBone® Green. Not so wild about the Grove connectors, but these do offer an easy integration path to various sensors. Note that the Grove connectors are just another path to P8/P9, there isn't any new functionality. If you are an experienced BeagleBone® Black user, be aware that the 5V jack is gone (now uses USB power only) and the P8/P9 headers have different default assignments. Also note that w/4 USB ports some capes may no longer fit because of interference w/USB ports.

    Meets expectation!!!
    I did not like the fact that an attempt was made to "make more money on the deal" by suggesting an additional pay to expedite the shipment when it was not really needed! I plan another order and hopefully no one will try to take advantage of the situation.

    Fantastic addition for your Beaglebone regardless if you have a Grove device or not.
    A fantastic addition for your Beaglebone. I am not using any Grove devices but I picked this up simply for the connectors. Grab a bundle of the Seeedstudio Grove - Universal 4 Pin Buckled 20cm Cables and snip off one end to be connected to whatever. Makes connecting projects and really any device to the Beaglebone so much easier. Has a built-in voltage selector so you can choose between 5V and 3.3V logic without having to use a converter. No library needed to use it, just plug and play.
