PocketBeagle is a low cost open source Linux computer with 1GHz Texas Instruments AM335x ARM 32-bit Cortex-A8 CPU, 512 DDR3 RAM, 3D graphics accelerator and NEON floating-point accelerator. It relies on Octavo Systems OSD335x-SM System-in-Package. PocketBeagle was released in 2017 and it is still available on the market.
In this getting started video we are booting Debian GNU Linux distribution from a microSD card on PocketBeagle. As of the moment the latest available Debian version for PocketBeagle is Buster IoT (without graphical desktop).
