Overview

What is BeagleBone® AI?

Built on the proven BeagleBoard.org® open source Linux approach, BeagleBone® AI fills the gap between small SBCs and more powerful industrial computers. Based on the Texas Instruments, Sitara™ AM5729 processor, developers have access to a highly integrated and powerful SoC with the ease of BeagleBone® Black header and mechanical compatibility. BeagleBone® AI makes it easy to explore machine learning inference applications using the Sitara machine learning toolkit, which take advantage of the neural network hardware accelerators available in the AM5729 processor.
