Furthermore, if you’re among the next 5 entrants into the contest, you’ll get a BeagleBone or a BeagleBoard-xM for free, so hurry and submit your design today!
BeagleBone is a pocket-sized expandable Linux computer that can connect to the Internet and runs software such as Android 4.0 and Ubuntu. Thanks to generous I/O and ARM processing power designed for real-time analysis provided by the Sitara™ AM335x ARM® Cortex™-A8 processor from Texas Instruments, cape plug-in boards help designers differentiate products and get to market faster.
To get your mind churning, a few examples of popular capes include: BeagleBone Weather Cape, BeagleBone DVI-D Cape, BeagleBone Battery Cape and LCD touch screen capes (in various sizes). For a complete listing of the current cape plug-in boards, click here.
Contestants of the BeagleBone Cape Plug-in Board Design Contest have until Dec. 31, 2012 to submit an original cape plug-in board design complete with a schematic, a bill of materials (BOM), and a video describing the cape idea that has been uploaded to YouTube. Check out the contest page for more information and to read about your chance to win third party tools via our weekly trivia contests,which are open to anyone.
On Jan. 7, 2013, a listing of all the submitted entries that meet the minimum requirements stated on Beagleboard.org/CapeContest will be published. A judging panel led by BeagleBoard.org, TI and CircuitCo will determine the three contest winners. The online community can show its support via Google+ and Facebook Likes. Winners will be announced Jan. 14, 2013.
