BeagleBoard.org Moves Along with its BeagleV-Ahead
July 12, 2023
BeagleBoard.org is now delivery its BeagleV-Ahead single board computer (SBC) based on the TH1520, a quad core 64-bit RISC-V SoC from T-Head. The SBC utilizes the open-source RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA).
Jason Kridner, Co-Founder of BeagleBoard.org offered, “RISC-V is rapidly gaining momentum as a transformative technology, and we believe that BeagleV Ahead will play a crucial role in its widespread adoption.”
BeagleV-Ahead supports hobbyists and researchers wanting to dive into RISC-V technology in a form factor ideal for everyday use. The various I/Os makes the SBC suitable for markets including Internet of Things (IoT) devices, robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), and embedded systems.
