BeagleBone Black availability

Hi,

during last month I noticed the availability of the BBB is not as good as it has been before. Farnell/element14 has more and more increasing lead times, currently their stock is empty and they expect next batch earliest in more than one month. Circuitco itself does not seem to produce any BBBs.

So: is this board going to die? Is it discontinued because of all these strange clones which are out there meanwhile (BBB Wireless, BBB Industrial, …)?

Thanks

Mike

CircuitCo is dead..

Both GHI and Embest manufacture all the boards..

Looks like a board shortage...

Regards,

It looks like Digikey is out of stock, but Mouser has 1300+ on the shelf.

Mouser Part #: 958-BBB01-SC-505
Manufacturer Part #: BBB01-SC-505
Manufacturer: BeagleBoard by GHI
Description: Single Board Computers Beaglebone Black
In Stock
1: $55.00

Looks like it’s (still?) out of stock most places, several months later. Amazon has a few, for $79.99 (!!!) or $66 as part of a starter kit (bunch of junk I don’t need). Mouser has 7,000+ on order, estimating June.
