BeagleBone® AI-64, the first 64-bit open hardware single board computer broadly available from®

BeagleBone® AI-64 brings a complete system for developing artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning solutions with the convenience and expandability of the BeagleBone® platform and the peripherals on board to get started right away learning and building applications.

With locally hosted, ready-to-use, open-source focused tool chains and development environment, a simple web browser, power source and network connection are all that need to be added to start building performance-optimized embedded applications. Industry-leading expansion possibilities are enabled through familiar BeagleBone® cape headers, with hundreds of open-source hardware examples and dozens of readily available embedded expansion options available off-the-shelf.

Leveraging over a decade of success in open hardware single board Linux computers, the BeagleBone® AI-64 puts a massive amount of computing power in an easy to use platform to build every sort of intelligent automation application, from robots to entire buildings and more. As a fully open hardware reference, engineers and hobbyists alike are enabled to fully validate solutions for themselves, eliminating barriers from prototype to production.

The® Foundation announces the world-wide distribution availability of BeagleBone® AI-64, the most powerful AI open-source platform available.   Built on our proven open source Linux approach, BeagleBone AI-64 brings a massive amount of computing power to the hands of developers in an easy to use single board computer.  Leveraging the Texas Instruments™ TDA4VM SoC with dual Arm® Cortex®-A72 cores, a programmable C7x DSP core, and deep learning, vision and multimedia accelerators, developers have access to faster analytics, more data storage options, more high-speed interfaces including all the connectors you’ll need on board to build applications such as:
