The USB-powered Beagle Board is a low-cost, fan-less single
board computer utilizing Texas Instruments’ OMAP3530 processor
that unleashes laptop-like performance and expansion without the
bulk, expense, or noise of typical desktop machines.

Beagle Board is based on an OMAP3530 application processor featuring an ARM® Cortex™-A8 running at up to 720MHz and delivering over 1,200 Dhrystone MIPS of performance via superscalar operation with highly accurate branch prediction and 256KB of L2 cache.  Focal to Beagle Board experience is the high-speed USB 2.0 on-the-go (OTG) port that can be utilized to provide power to the board or to deliver highly flexible expansion.  Standard PC peripherals can be connected to Beagle Board using the USB with a mini-A to standard-A cable adapter, DVI-D using an HDMI to DVI-D adapter, or through the MMC/SD/SDIO connector enabling a complete desktop experience.

To learn more about what can be done with Beagle Board, Digi-Key's OMAP3530 Beagle Board Product Training Module provides a discussion about Beagle Board's functionality and capabilities. Additional, information can be obtained through BeagleBoard.org where you can also get access to an active and growing development community.
