[beagleboard] Suggestion for change to Beaglebone PCB: USB header

Thank you for the suggestion, but I have no plans to make such a change. It would require a majot layout change, added expense, and having to take the board through FCC testing all over again, several thousand dollars of expense. I may consider something like this on a future version, but that would be something I cannot guarantee will happen.



The other option is to use a lower profile PWR (+5V) connector.
But the the option would be to redesign the power supply altogether so it can support a single Li-Po battery (supplying target and charging)
