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'd be interesting in getting a board and seeing what it can and cannot do. I've used a number of embedded devices and SBCs, boot loaders, Linux, device driver mods, networking, etc. I am interested in RISC-V and recently get one micro-controller RISC-v boards from Seeed. I hope this board makes it to market and gets some traction and a reasonable group of developers provided support before the end of the year.
Current word on this is that it's very much delayed while the beagleboard range are being sorted out - the current microchip shortage isn't helping at all.
There're people who've managed to get an early version of the BeagleV and they were from the first batch run of the board.
