DATE FRIDAY 02/24/17.......Orders have been placed by distributors and the manufacturing process has begun. Due to the processor revision change, we will be building some pre-production versions.<cr>
As soon as we have a firm date from PTI on those I will update the page. A lot depends on when TI can get us the processors.<cr>

BeagleBoard-X15 Description

The BeagleBoard-X15 is the newest member of the BeagleBoard family. Measuring 4" x 4.2", it is based on a Dual Core A15 processor running at 1.5GHZ and features 2GB of DDR3L Memory.
Below is a picture of the top side of the board

BeagleBoard-X15 Production Status and Distributors

Special Computing offers both A2 and a few B1 versions plus related accessories.

We do have a few of the A2 versions available for sale at RS Components. These boards have the same functionality, features, and performance that the newer board has but without the FCC or CE marking.

BeagleBoard-X15 Questions and Answers

Does this replace the BeagleBone Black?


What is the expected price?

MSRP is $239

How many general purpose I/O pins are there?

There are four connectors with 60 pins each with about 157 GPIO pins[1]. The connectors are high-speed surface-mount on the back side of the board and even include PCIe[2].

Will this be open hardware?

Yes, all BeagleBoard.org designs are released as open hardware, with source schematics and layout available for your modification. We choose devices that are available in single unit quantities from worldwide distributors and publish our bill of materials. Documentation for the devices are available without NDA at the time of product launch. Within the processor, there may be some undocumented features, but no closed-source blobs are required to be loaded to boot the devices and full control is turned over to the users.

Is the graphics engine software open source?

The TI Sitara device used on BeagleBoard-X15 utilizes Imagination Technologies' PowerVR SGX544 GPU[3]. The kernel components of the current solution are GPLv2 licensed. There is no open source support for the user space components of this GPU from Imagination, but the FSF has proposed a project to create an open driver[4].

Will I be able to program the C66x DSPs?

Yes, there is a free C/C++ compiler from Texas Instruments and support in the mainline of the open source GCC C/C++ compiler. Support for interprocessor communication is also included in the mainline Linux kernel via RPMSG[5] [6] [7] .

TI OpenCL[8] Support

bb.org: needs linux kernel: 4.1.10-ti-r23/4.1.10-ti-rt-r23 or greater from the v4.1.x-ti branch
sudo apt-get install firmware-am57xx-opencl-monitor ti-opencl
