BeagleBoard Documentation#


Welcome to the BeagleBoard project documentation. If you are looking for help with your Beagle open-hardware development platform, you’ve found the right place!


The BeagleBoard.org Foundation is a US-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing open hardware computing solutions for a community of makers, educators and professionals that enable rapid prototyping without barriers to creating real-world embedded systems. The BeagleBoard.org Foundation supports the BeagleBoard community through efforts like developing this documentation.


Get started quickly on our Linux-enabled boards with Blink an LED, follow-up with articles in An Introduction to Beagles, and reach out via resources on our Support page as needed to resolve issues and engage with the developer community. Don’t forget that this is an open-source project! Your contributions are welcome. Learn about how to contribute to the BeagleBoard documentation project and any of the many open-source Beagle projects ongoing on our Contribution page.


This is where you will find the System Reference Manuals (SRMs) for all of the boards.

All Beagles are open-hardware with documentation on the design, including the materials to modify the designs from source using appropriate design tools.

A number of software projects, like simpPRU exist to help Beagle developers. Some developers choose to host documentation for their Projects here.


This project hosts a collection of open-source Books written to help Beagle developers.


This is a list of hardware accessories tested with BeagleBone hardware. The list is growing with support of volunteers like you. Checkout the Accessories page for more information.
