Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest electronic components and industrial automation products, is now stocking the BeagleV®-Fire single-board computer (SBC) from This groundbreaking Linux-compatible, open-source SBC provides a performance-robust RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA), FPGA customization and packs a comprehensive array of connectivity options and versatile I/O interfaces – all in a compact form factor at a very affordable price.

The BeagleBoard BeagleV®-Fire SBC, available from Mouser Electronics, is driven by Microchip Technology’s PolarFire® MPFS025T FPGA system-on-chip (SoC) that combines the power and speed of five RISC-V 64-bit cores (four 64-bit RV64GC application cores and one 64-bit RV64IMAC monitor/boot core) with the flexibility of an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array). The SoC chipset touts a notable performance score of 3.125 CoreMarks/MHz and 1.714 DMIPS/MHz, and the FPGA fabric on-chip features 23K logic elements, 68 Math blocks (18×18 MACC), and 4 SerDes lanes of 12.7 Gbps (A SYZYGY connector on the board is targeted at high-speed FPGA connections). The SoC also has 128 kB of eNVM and 65 kB of sNVM flash memory. Other on-chip features include a 36-bit DDR4/DDR3/LPDDR4/LPDDR3 memory controller with single-error correction and double-error detection (SECDED) and a healthy offering of communication interfaces (GigE MACs, USB 2.0 OTG, UARTs, SPIs, I2Cs, CAN 2.0, PCIe, etc.).

The BeagleV-Fire SBC provides ample storage with 16GB of Kingston eMMC, 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM and a microSD card socket. Other on-board features include a 1 Gb Ethernet connection along with power input via its dual-role USB Type-C™ (480Mbps) connector and terminal block, an M.2 E-Key PCIe connector for support of 2.4 GHz/5 GHz Wi-Fi® modules, SDIO, a 6-pin, 3.3V UART, a 22-pin CSI camera connector, serial debug ports and JTAG support. The board’s BeagleBone compatible 92-pin, P8 and P9 cape header pins provide additional add-on expansion and offer digital I/O pins, PWM, analog, I2C, SPI and UART interfaces.

The compact 86.38 mm × 54.61 mm × 18.8 mm BeagleV-Fire SBC is available now through Mouser Electronics. With powerful computing capabilities and FPGA customization options, the BeagleV-Fire SBC’s Linux-compatible (with Ubuntu preinstalled) design is ideally suited for Internet of Things (IoT) applications, roboticsartificial intelligence, and embedded systems.
