BeagleBone Black REV C is the newest member of the BeagleBoard family and is a lower-cost, high-expansion focused BeagleBone, featuring the Sitara AM3358BZCZ100 ARM Cortex-A8 32-Bit RISC microprocessor from Texas Instruments.
The Beagleboard.org platform has a proven track record of facilitating innovation from concept to market and BeagleBone Black’s enhanced feature set enables developers to turn ideas into prototypes more easily than ever. Whether operating standalone or in conjunction with another computer, this new BeagleBone will also provide developers easy access to industry standard interfaces and a well-developed ecosystem of software and tools.
If you liked the BeagleBone Black Rev B, you will also love the Rev C! The Rev C still has a blistering 1GHz processor and 512MB onboard DDR3 RAM and like the old one, it has the AM3359 microprocessor, two 46-pin headers, micro HDMI for the audio/video output, USB ports, 10/100 Ethernet and other I/O features. The Rev C is an ultra-powered embedded computer that can fit in a mint tin.
This model includes 4GB of eMMC built-in storage instead of the Rev B’s 2GB. With the doubled storage and faster eMMC, the developers were able to make the Rev C’s most significant change: shipping the BeagleBone Black with Debian Linux pre-loaded on the board’s flash instead of Angstrom Linux.
Of course, the BeagleBone Black Rev C is an open board so if you want to load it back up with Angstrom or other Linux-based distributions like Ubuntu or Android, you can.
