Manufacturing and PCB assembly of the Beaglebone Black

Hello all,

My company Xandem is very interested in using the Beaglebone Black as a component in an upcoming product that we are developing. We have prototyped the system using the Beaglebone Black and it works well. My main concern is with the supply of these devices for full product fulfillment. We’re going to need to purchase these at approximately 10,000 units per order. So, I have a few questions:

  1. Is there anything particularly tricky about the pcb assembly of the BBB for a typical board/assembly house?
  2. Will I be able to manufacture the BBB for the same cost as buying online assuming we order 10,000 units (approx $44 per board)?
    I would really appreciate anyone who knows something about this to reply. Thank you for your time.
