Resource Links for the BeagleBoard.org Community
The open-source BeagleBoard.org designs are perfect for rapidly building prototypes to express your new idea, but sometimes you need to go beyond and bring your own product to life. The BeagleBoard.org community is loaded with experts that know how to get you there and this is your guide to engaging with them.
First off, there is the support wiki page on eLinux.org. When in doubt, search around the wiki for who might already be working on the challenge you are facing. Once you have some ideas, reach out to the experts to help you get to where you are headed.
You should also start by checking out the logo-licensed compatible boards as one of them may meet your product requirments and the manufacturer might be able to satisfy your business needs.
