The PocketBeagle is an ultratiny open-source development board ideal for beginners and professionals. As with any other BeagleBoard, the PocketBeagle is a low cost Linux computer with tremendous expansibility, a slick design, and is easy to use. Learn many programming aspects from educators on-line, and the openness and flexibility of the PocketBeagle tears down limits on imagination.

The PocketBeagle is based on the Octavo Systems OSD3358-SM 21x21mm system-in-package that includes 512MB DDR3 RAM. The board has 72 expansion pin headers with power and battery I/Os, high-speed USB, 8 analog inputs, 44 digital I/Os, and numerous digital interface peripherals. The PocketBeagle has a microUSB host/client and microSD connectors.
