Jun 14, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 4,288 views

The BeagleBoard community released a new BeagleBone board yesterday. The new model is called the BeagleBone AI-64 which builds on the BeagleBone AI SBC released a few years ago. The new Single Board Computer is equipped with the TDA4VM System on Chip (SoC) produced by Texas Instruments.

The SoC implemented for the BeagleBone AI-64 consist of two ARM Cortex-A72, six ARM Cortex-R5, a PowerVR Rogue 3D GPU, 4GB LPDDR4, 16GB of eMMC storage, one MicroSD card socket, one GbE LAN port, and many other peripherals.

The main differences between the BB AI-64 besides the TDA4VM SoC are the dual MIPI CSI for cameras, the miniDP for display, the M.2 E-Key with PCIe, USB, SDIO and the upgraded 4GB RAM.

 Further information has listed Digi-Key, OKDO and Element14 as the main suppliers. They seem to be out of stock on Digi-Key. Element14 has the boards available for ~$244. OKDO has them listed for ~$189, but it seems they are already sold out. The TDA4VM SoCs also seem to be sold out on TI’s product page.
