That sounds like the upcoming Rev C

Is it POE capable?

(Drew Fustini (pdp7)) #4

Hmm im not sure, there is nothing in rev C that would change any existing functionality like that.

@Drew_Fustini_pdp7 yes, upcoming rev c also called next generation

@Jude_Miller No not having #poe

@Jason_Kridner can DSP like functionality be done with the PRU (Programmable Real-time Unit). @Sanjeev_sekaran what type of DSP functionality do you need?

(Tony B) #8

PRU is meant for high speed bit-banging, not DSP computations. The BeagleBoard has the on-chip C6x DSP, but the AM335x Sitaras don’t (and won’t – TI’s next gen Sitara is dual core Cortex). My guess is your best bet for DSP operations is to use the Neon instruction set; the GPU might be an option, but as far as I can tell from a quick search, OpenCL is not supported.

Thanks @Tony_B !

Rev C is only changing the eMMC, nothing else.
