Beaglebone.org and Seed Studio have just announced the new Beaglebone Green, the first major derivative of the wildly popular Beaglebone Black. The Beagle Bone Green is being produced by Seeed Studio, and is a highly modified design based on the Beaglebone Black. The board features two Grove System connectors, which make attaching Seeed's Grove modules quick and easy. Another major addition to the board is a battery backed up Real Time Clock (RTC), and the company has replaced the barrel jack power connector with a standard micro USB. Finally, the Seed has ditched the HDMI connector as it was rarely utilized in most projects.

At the time of this posting it is still unclear if Seeed Studio has updated the processor, RAM or onboard storage in the "Green" revision, but we will post an update when we get that information. The Beaglebone Green is set to officially debut next month at the Shenzhen Maker Faire, and is expected to retail for about $50 USD. We have reached out to Seeed in hopes to obtain an early review sample, so stay tuned for that!
