TI Sitara based GOEMBED Systems-on-Module and Single Board Computers with BeagleBone Capes Support

Orange Pi Development Boards

GOEMBED is a startup funded by engineers previously working for Embest Shenzhen, based in Longhua district in Shenzhen, and specialized in embedded boards and modules. They currently have board and modules based on Freescale i.MX6 and Texas Instruments Sitara processors, but I’ll focus on the TI products in this post, including one of their single board computers that supports BeagleBone capes.

CM3352 and CM3358 Systems-on-Module

GOEMBED_AM3358_ModuleCM335x Series modules specifications:

Modules are available now, and can be purchased until 2022. Prices start at $49 for CM3352 SoM, up to $99 for the industrial version of CM3358 SoM, and single board computers start at $89 (B2A + CM3352), and up to $149. I’ve also noticed the single board computers can be purchased on Aliexpress: both SBC335x-B1A ($139) and SCB335X-B2A ($59 baseboard + $59-$69 CPU module).
