BeagleBoard.org was founded to give developers, hobbyists and students robust open-source hardware development platforms so they could quickly and cost effectively assemble systems by leveraging the many advantages of the open-source ecosystem. BeagleBoard, BeagleBoard-xM, BeagleBone and now BeagleBone Black provide flexible and expandable open source platforms for all electronic artists—from those who are just learning to develop to experienced commercial designers.
