Product Unboxing

I'm very thankful to Element 14 community for giving me the opportunity for reviewing Pocketbeagle Hardware. I have received this hardware within 8 days of getting selected for this road test.
The parcel box was very good in condition and kept with safety wrappers which felt nice and helpful. I check with the Board packing it was very awesome and attractive for hardware hobbyist which for getting a mini-computer for managing all kind of work task in daily life.

  • OK, nice overview of the device, but what types of tests did you perform and where are your test results?

    How does it compare in processing power to the RPI?

    How well does it transfer data from I/O pins to memory and from memory to I/O.

    How many timers can you set up and how stable and accurate are they?

    What are the timing delays introduced by the operating system verses direct I/O manipulation?


    There are a lot of things to test on this board. I hope you do a few of them to give us a real test report.



  • I'm uploading further details on the testing of the hardware. Please wait for 2-3 days image 

  • Ok.

    You need to include comments that your review is incomplete.

    It looked like you were done, and I was a bit disappointed.


    I look forward to seeing your updates.
