Hobbyists.
At 35 x 56 x 5 mm, PocketBeagle® is small and flexible enough to fit in gaming, 3D printing, robotics or other electronics projects; and affordable enough to dedicate one to live permanently in each of those different projects. PocketBeagle® not only includes a 1-GHz processor, but also industrial-oriented peripherals and microcontrollers optimized for interfacing to the physical world.

Educators.
PocketBeagle® doesn't require installation of tools to get started. You develop directly in your web browser, a tool you already know; and PocketBeagle® can easily be reset to factory conditions, leaving you free to experiment.

Professionals.
PocketBeagle® utilizes a simple open-source hardware design and a catalog-available, well-documented processor. PocketBeagle® avoids consuming precious hardware resources, leaving them available for design goals.
