BeagleBoard.org Logo Program

To best enable collaboration within the community, the BeagleBoard.org Foundation will license logos to suitable manufacturers looking to advance solutions for participants within the community. We seek to hold our licensed manufacturers to high quality, reliability and ethical standards.
