[beagleboard] EAR and export restrictions

There is the thing called a government. Governments rule countries. Governments impose restrictions. The processor on this board has security encryption on it. That is the reason for these restrictions.

To date, we have had very few issues getting these boards into any country. There is a process that needs to be followed, and yes tthere is paperwork, and yes it takes some effort. The distributor should be able to help with this and it is always an issue when new boards are put into the market.


In my case I have to fill a license exception and that is. Couples of minutes.

Problem is at least with distributor I’ve choose I cannot ship to my forwarder in FL and then to Chile. I have to ship directly to Chile using one of the distributor’s courier (Fedex) and this can be really expensive when moving large quantities.
