Designers in the open source world can finish developments quickly with the Beagle Board, a 3 x 3-inch module that can be used to create gaming images or other complex tasks. Digi-Key Corp. is now offering the card, which provides the computing power needed to create real-time pixel-shaded graphics for gaming and 3-D user interface acceleration. It also lets users develop embedded applications such as home media centers, robotics, Web kiosks and digital signage. The board is powered by a Texas Instruments' OMAP3530 processor, which includes a TMS320C64x+ DSP core and an ARM Cortex-A8, 2-D/3-D graphics engine. The portable card is powered through a USB connector, so it can be attached to a range of systems.
With a better understanding of materials’ response to load and temperature, researchers could potentially use the knowledge to improve design. The research could even help geologists studying plate tectonics.
