1.1. Overview of ARM Technology [2]
ARM (originally ‘Acron RISC Machine’ now known as ‘Advanced RISC Machine’)
basically belongs to family of RISC instruction set architecture for processors in
computers. ARM was basically designed for developing low-cost, power-efficient and
performance processors. ARM supports both 32-Bit and 64-Bit architectures supporting
clock frequency upto 1GHz. ARM integrates SoC (System-on-chips) technology which
facilitates integration of memory, ports and other interfaces. Because of its unique
features and interfacing’s, ARM technology is currently used in almost every
development board. Till 2014, 50 Billion ARM processors have been produced powering
almost every mobile device, development boards, handheld gadgets and even drones.
Because of its plethora of advantages, ARM is powering Beaglebone and its various
Boards.
1.2. Basic Overview of “Beagle” Platform [1, 3]
The term “Beagle” was coined by Digi-key [4] and the first fully functional low-power
single board open source computer was designed by Texas Instruments [5] along with
Network Element 14 [6] and was launched on July 28, 2008. Since its launch, “Beagle
Project” got a terrific response from large community of open source developers and
forums to take up this board and utilizing it towards open source project developments.
Till date, various flavours of boards are launched like BeagleBoard-X15, Beaglebone
Black, Beaglebone, Beaglebone-xM, BeagleBoard and more than 30 Million Boards are
sold world-wide till 2015.

Figure 2. Beaglebone Board-Components [Img Src: www.beagleboard.org]
The following are the components of Beaglebone Board:
1. Processor: Processor being the heart of Beaglebone board manages all sorts of
controls and operations. Beaglebone processor is based on ARM Cortex A8/A15
Processor technology running at various clock speeds like 720 MHz, 1GHz, and
1.5GHz.
2. RAM: Depending on various generation models, Beaglebone boards are equipped
with 128/256/512/2048 MB RAM.
3. DC Power Jack: Beaglebone requires 5V and 500 mA of DC power to operate.
Along with DC power jack, 2.1 mm barrel jack connector will be required to
power the board. Beaglebone facilitates over voltage protection chip upto 12V.
4. Ethernet Port: Beaglebone has on-board 10/100 standard RJ45 Ethernet Port
supporting all sorts of networking protocols along with Wi-Fi connection sharing.
5. Reset Button: Reset Button reboots the board. It provides logic 1 or 0 to trigger
the processor. Functioning similarly like Reset Button on computer/smartphones,
it reboots the entire operating system and also provides backup from failure if
lock up situation occurs.
6. USB Host: USB Host provides same features like USB port on normal
computers/laptops. Beaglebone USB host ports enables users to connect various
3rd party peripherals like Keyboard, Mouse, Web Camera, Wi-Fi adopters and
external storage devices like pen drives, USB card readers and hard disk drives.
7. LEDs: Beaglebone board has LED located aside power connector to indicate
power ON signal when power applied to board. Most of the boards are equipped
with 4 LED’s with following functionalities: LED0 will be ON when Board is up
and running. LED 1 will indicates microSD card operations. LED 2 indicates
Active CPU active situation. LED 3 indicates flash memory access.
8. Extension Headers: Beaglebone has 2 extension headers on left and right side
which facilitates integration of various electronic components like LED’s,
Switch’s, Sensors, and Modules etc. for developing various projects.
9. USB Client: USB Client port is basically used for connecting Beaglebone to
computer and power would be provided via USB. When connected to computer,
it appears like storage device.
10. MicroSD Card Slot/uSD: MicroSD card slot facilitates integration of microSD
cards to store operating systems, applications and data. Taking Beaglebone black
into consideration, where operating system is stored on onboard flash memory by

default, any updates can be done via sd card slot only. Operating systems can be
downloaded on Beaglebone website which can be written on SD card via
Win32Disk Imager software.
microHDMI: microHDMI port does the work of connecting Beaglebone board to
HDMI enabled Monitor/TV. It supports maximum resolution of 1280x1024
pixels.
Serial Debug: Serial Debug is used for serial communications to connect an FTDI
TTL-232 cable or breakout board and enable text based terminal via USB.
eMMC/Onboard Flash Memory: Beaglebone (Black version) has operating
system stored on eMMC/onboard flash memory to boot up the board without any
SD card requirement.
Boot Button: Available only in Beaglebone black. Continuous hold of Boot
Button instructs Beaglebone to boot from SD card attached on SD card slot rather
than onboard flash memory.
PMIC (Power Management Integrated Circuit): PMIC module provides power
backup solution to Beaglebone via connecting li-po batteries. These batteries will
act as UPS for Beaglebone for providing backup to users over electricity failure to
shut down the board or do necessary important work till batteries last long.
