Well, it's not a Beaglebone, Not really a Beagleboard. But beagleboard.org was involved in creating it
With the concerns about Nvidia owning ARM, this RiscV gives everyone alternatives.
I also noticed this today as well, I've asked if we're going to carry and sell this board, with any accessories.
Early discussions on groups about it are whether or not it's as open source as it…
It's likely Farnell will be distributing the boards made by Seeed.
I spotted that on twitter today too. Looks interesting. It's still a bit early to tell if it's be useful though.
I figured I'd hijack this threat to mention... I'm going to be getting hold of some of these boards this year and they're 'beta' boards - for those who're prepared to do some work with it, get to grips with the product early and they're interested in providing some support and development for a RISC based processor board.
We'll probably offer some of these up for a RoadTest but I'm interested in helping out to get this product off the ground a bit more, often there've been some teething issues with BeagleBone boards and their support and feedback for being in people's hands and those wishing they'd had one earlier so they could help out - at least I'd hope so.
If there're people who have the embedded hardware knowledge to get to grips with kit like this, and they're interested in working with it, and working with it early. Then I'd be interested in hearing from you. I'd likely do separate post about this as well but figured I'd gauge interest here first
