BeagleBone Black wins 2013 Top Embedded Innovator award
Embedded Computing Design magazine recently announced its 2013 Top Embedded Innovator awards. BeagleBone Black was announced as a winner in the Top Products Silicon category. Hardly surprising, given the waves BeagleBoard.org has been making in the embedded industry for the last five years.
The August 2013 issue, in addition to announcing the award winners, includes an article called DIY pushes open hardware from kindergarten to Kickstarter. This article looks a bit at some of the thoughts and platforms that BeagleBoard.org has spawned. What an article like this can't easily describe is the experience a designer has in prototyping their concept and then bringing it to market. That story is most easily told by projects like OpenROV and Ninja Blocks, both of which used BeagleBone to transform prototypes into products.
