I’m using the BeagleBone Green and Black from time to time for several tasks. I like its simplicity, price and incredibly low power consumption. The only thing I really miss, is a USB-C connector. Beside of that a faster/dual core and/or faster Ethernet would be nice but mainly are not needed for my applications.
Now when I look what seems to be the future of the BeagleBoane, I’m really scared.
There is a board named “AI” which is incredibly expensive (may be due to the loads of features and interfaces which have been added?) but still usable as it comes with the same size like White/Green/Blue/Black. Unfortunately it seems it is already discontinued.
And there is an “AI-64” now which is even more expensive and - what is really a problem - comes with a completely different size!
So I don’t want to blame anybody for this, but ask this question: is there something planned, which is more a BeagleBone like White/Black/Green and not such a huge, feature-overloaded processor board which doesn’t has to do very much with the original BB?
