Today’s announcement is especially exciting to us as it involves the open source community. While we work with corporations providing them with closed source solutions, we also enjoy working with the open source community and makers. Today, we are an important part and a great supporter of the BeagleBoard.Org Foundation and its ecosystem of maker friendly products.
If you didn’t know, the BeagleBoard.Org Foundation is located in Michigan and is literally only minutes away from GHI Electronics’ headquarters. By being in close proximity to the BeagleBoard.Org Foundation headquarters, we’re able to stay actively engaged in on-going project developments.
We have made all our engineering resources available to the BeagleBoard.Org Foundation. Through our participation in brain-storming and roadmap discussions, we’ve become incredibly excited about all of the awesome open source products the Foundation will be releasing.
Due to the huge demand for the BeagleBone Black, GHI Electronics will not be selling the BeagleBone Black directly via our website. However, you are able to purchase the BeagleBone Black through our distribution network including international distributors like Mouser, with whom we have had a great partnership with for many years.
If you are currently a BeagleBone Black fanatic like we are but you have a question on customizing your project please give us a call. We are here for you with our vast experience with engineering, manufacturing and bringing products to market.
Next time you are purchasing a BeagleBone Black, make sure that the board is from an official BeagleBone Black manufacturer like GHI Electronics or distributor which can be found listed at Beagleboard.org.
We are excited to be working with the Beagleboard.org team and look forward to working with the open source community as well.
