Note that the Black is roughly similar, just bigger and more peripherals?

The PocketBeagle is a tiny but powerful key-fob-sized open source Linux computer for $25. It has 44 digital I/O pins, 8 analog inputs, and supports multiple serial I/O protocols, making it very useful as a controller. In addition, its processor includes two 200-MHz microcontrollers that allow you to implement low-latency, real-time functions while still having the capabilities of a Linux system. This article discusses my experience trying out the PocketBeagle, with details of how to use its different features.

The PocketBeagle is a low-cost, compact Linux computer, able to control external devices with its I/O ports and GPIO pins. Since the PocketBeagle was released recently, there isn't a whole lot of documentation on it. Hopefully this article has shown you how to get started with the PocketBeagle and use some of its features.

For more information, see the PocketBeagle FAQ and Getting Started pages. Also remember that the PocketBeagle uses the same processor and Linux kernel as the BeagleBone, so most of the information on the BeagleBone will carry over to the PocketBeagle. I've found the book Exploring BeagleBone to be especially helpful. Thanks to Robert Nelson and DigiKey for giving a PocketBeagle tutorial at Hackaday Superconference.

file specifies the default pin mappings and names other pin mappings. But if you want to track down the actual hardware meaning of each header pin, it's complicated. The PocketBeagle schematic shows the mapping from header pins to balls on the Octavo chip package. The Octavo OSD335x documentation gives ball map to the Sitara chip. The Sitara AM335x datasheet lists the up to eight functions assigned to each pin. The Technical Reference Manual Section 9.3.1.49 describes the control register for each pin. Thus, it's possible but tedious to determine from "first principles" exactly what each PocketBeagle header pin does. ↩
