Beaglebone Green Gateway Sbc Features Sitara Am3358, Ethernet, and a Dc Jack

SeeedStudio has been working on an addition to their BeagleBone Green Development Board family with an update to the BeagleBone Green Wireless board named BeagleBone Green Gateway. The board features the new Octavo Systems OSD3358, which is a SiP (System in Package) that integrates the AM3358 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 Processor, 512MB DDR3 SRAM, and other wonderful features into one package.

The new board is being designed to suit applications where the board is being used as a gateway, as such, it comes with both Ethernet Connectivity, WiFi and BLE Wireless connectivity options. The board also comes with an extra DC connector for power (overcoming the Micro USB only for power limitation), and an onboard I2C RTC, so that it is more suitable for industrial application or applications where time accuracy is required.
