Newark launches the first professional, mass-produced RISC-V SBC by Beagleboard.org. Newark is stocking the BeagleV-Ahead, a RISC-V single-board-computer (SBC), that is mass-produced and professional level.
BeagleV_Ahead is the same form factor as the BeagleBone Black P8 and P9 with the same cape header pins. This allows developers to stack BeagleBones the same way they always did, to expand the SBC capabilities.
The SBC features a quad-core RISC-V processor and is designed for affordability. The BeagleV-Ahead is meant to be a RISC-V-enabled pocket-size computer for a general target user base, allowing anyone to dive deeply into RISC-V ISA.
The SBC is built on a T-Head TH1520 RISC-V SoC using a quad-core Xuan Tie C910 Processor, running at 1.85GHz with a 4 TOPS NPU. There is support for 64-bit DDR and also audio processing using a single core C906.
“BeagleBoard.org has a strong track record of developing open-source hardware platforms and the launch of BeagleV®-Ahead reinforces Newark’s commitment to fostering innovation and collaboration within the technology community. By making the RISC-V architecture accessible to a broader audience, BeagleV®-Ahead empowers developers to explore new possibilities, accelerate their projects and contribute to the advancement of the RISC-V ecosystem,” Romain Soreau, Head of Single Board Computing at Newark, said,
Also, Jason Krinder Co-founder of BeagleBoard.org released a statement “We are extremely excited to introduce BeagleV®-Ahead to the world. RISC-V is rapidly gaining momentum as a transformative technology, and we believe that BeagleV®-Ahead will play a crucial role in its widespread adoption. Our goal is to provide a robust, open-source platform that empowers users to unleash their creativity and develop cutting-edge solutions.”
Beagleboard.org is a foundation non-profit corporation, operating in Michigan, with a main focus on education and collaboration with those who wish to work in the open-source sector.
