Can you use a Beagle Bone Black in place of the Pocket beagle or does it have to be a pocket beagle?  I have a K40D-PB and unable to find any pocket beagles so just wondering if even possible,

If to err is human, I am more human than most people.

Each device is designed around the physical characteristics of the "brain" unit, as well as their functional setup.

PB = Pocket Beagle
B = Beagle Bone
Sequencers: Vixen3 and xLights
Players: FPP and xSchedule Controllers:  Renards - SS24/SS16; E1.31 - San Devices E682 - Falcon F16, F4, F48 - J1Sys - DIYLEDExpress E1.31 Bridges.  Much more!

You can find a few on Ali Express.  I ordered a BBB and it came in original packaging.  You're going to pay a premium, though, as everywhere is out of stock until probably next year.

I suppose you could try to create a cape to "translate" corresponding pins to each other.  A lot of work, though...

Quote from: rayster on March 11, 2022, 04:16:25 PMAlso Wired Watts and Kulp have them in stock.

Maybe, but at price premium  $52.50 Digi-Key  BBB  and $35.32 for Pocket Beagle

Kensington Graves

Honestly, that may be the new market price, what with chip shortages, petrochemical price increases, and whatnot.

rayster

Yes, DigiKey price online is lower but also has a statement "[color=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.870588235294118)]Import Tariff may apply to this part if shipping to the United States". [/color]So what is the real price?

Also, I believe in supporting the people that help make this hobby happen. If it was a company trying to make a buck that is one thing but when it is our own creators I do not mind paying a fair price.

Just for fun, I put one in the cart at digikey.   After shipping, it was $67.53.  Wired Watts is at $70.

For those looking for a Raspberry Pi, www.RPilocator.com does near-real-time polling of different sites for availability.  I was able to order one yesterday, although I paid the vig to get it from England.

So you are telling me Wired Watts doesn't charge Tax or Shipping? 

Kensington Graves

Wired Watts did not charge me tax, and shipping was $4.80.

The other thing about Wired Watts: you are much less likely to ONLY be ordering a PocketBeagle from them.  Every time I order something from them, it just makes sense to throw in a few strings of pixels or f-amps or pigtails or something.  Thus, the shipping really is a combined shipping.
