      Description


      (Jason Krinder of Beagleboard.org announced SeeedStudio 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----Beaglebone Green.


      Beaglebone Green (Short as BBG) is a joint effort by Beaglebone.org and Seeed Studio and it was derived from Beaglebone Black (Short as BBB). If you ever heard of BBB, you may know that BBB 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. BBG is better than BBB, we have kept almost all the good features of BBB 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 BBG to them with a simple cable. So far we have produced more than 30 Groves that work well with BBG, 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


      Grove - RTC is not compatible with Beaglebone Green as it requires 5V.


      Despite of the changes we made, BBG is still fully compatible with BBB and applied with all the BBB capes. Even though BBG has all these advantages, we did not increase the price, actually the price of BBG 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 BBG if you need a Beaglebone for your project, I am sure you will like it.

      Hi Dear Customer, 1. please download the latest Debian 9.1 2017-08-31 4GB SD LXQT image. 2. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade to update, Make sure you plug in the Ethernet cable to get Internet to the Beaglebone. 3. sudo apt-get install tightvncserver to install vnc server on BBG 4. On your PC, go to http://www.tightvnc.com and download the software. then you can enjoy the GUI. or you can add the HDMI cape and connect to monitor by the HDMI cables. thanks, Bill
