BeagleBone System Reference Manual

I've uploaded the system reference manual that Gerald released to me,
along with additional hardware files including Gerbers, Orcad
schematics and Allegro design files:
http://beagleboard.org/hardware/design/

Jason,

thanks for sharing.
Let me ask the first question: What is the length of the cutout for
LEDs and reset? (fig. 36/p.67).

j.

It wil be on the next revsion of the manual. 9/16 of an inch.

Gerald

Thanks for the SRM! Looks great.
Would be very helpful to have the locations of the
connectors and holes documented for the expansion bords.
A good place could be Figure 36 on page 67 of 72
or a separate figure just for them.

You can read them from the gerbers. If you can wait a bit longer, I'll
release kicad module for BeagleBone.

j.

Gerbers are the way to go. We will have a sample gerber for a cape soon when we relase the DVID board.

You can read them from the gerbers. If you can wait a bit longer, I'll

Will you give rights such that they can be uploaded to
http://beagleboard.org/hardware/design?

I want to release the design under an open license and I'd be very
happy to see it featured on the BB web site. I have not decided yet on
the type of license, but I'm considering GPL or share alike CC,
slightly leaning towards the latter. Any suggestions and advises on
this?

j.

There are several options. Contact me and we can discuss.

What about http://www.tapr.org/OHL ?

I think that CC-BY-SA covers all my needs. What would be the advantage
of distributing under TAPR license?

j.

Probably because it is specially designed for hardware?
