Grove Cape for BeagleBone® Series

A true open hardware ,BeagleBone® Series is credit-card-sized Linux computer that connects to the Internet and runs software such as Android 4.0 and Ubuntu. With plenty of I/O and processing power for real-time analysis provided by an AM335x 720MHz ARM® processor, BeagleBone® can be complemented with cape plug-in boards to augment functionality.

And this Grove - Grove Cape for BeagleBone® Series is an expansion board for BeagleBone® Series to work with abundant Grove resources. There are 6 ready Grove sockets on the board covering functions like UART, I2C and ADC. And in this way, all Grove Modules are accessible for the BeagleBone® board. Wanna make some projects with BeagleBone® and need some sensors or display? This Grove - Grove Cape for BeagleBone® Series can bring you this convenience.
