(Jason Krinder of Beagleboard.org announced Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green at Bay Area Maker Faire, the latest version has removed the battery backed up Real Time Clock (RTC).)

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 by BeagleBone®.org and Seeed Studio and it was derived from BeagleBone® Black. If you ever heard of BeagleBone® Black, you may know that BeagleBone® Black was the most popular board in the BeagleBone® board family. It is much cheaper than previous version while inherits all the good features of BeagleBone®. Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green is better than BeagleBone® Black, we have kept almost all the good features of BeagleBone® Black such as the tiny size, abundant interface and strong expansibility, while at the same changed it a bit to make it more powerful.



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 in the grove family, all of them are integrated 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 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.


Despite of 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.
