    At Last, We can begin. But Many may wonder how are we going to fit everything thats on a Beagle bone onto a PCB thats 2x Less the size? To be honest with you, I don't really know!

    Guess you will have to Follow to find out, through the next few months we will be updating, posting, and designing such a board so whoever wants to make a project with the Beagle, but wants a smaller size. This project will be for you!

The new smaller SiP was released today for order today:

This will make this project much easier to accomplish.

So glad I saw this. I've been lurking on Digi-Key staring at the old 400-pin model for too long. Thanks!

Saw that you guys cloned the PocketBone repo and commented on the survey. I did some real estate checks on the form factor.

The octavo sip is physically to large to fit in the PI zero wireless form factor. You might be able to use the original am335x chip but it may be a close fit.

Great concept!  That would be a useful form factor.  You might want to check out the PocketBone design by @Michael Welling.  He just completed hand assembly which was great to see:

Cool idea!  If you are doing this as an Open Source Hardware project, then please email me and I should be able to prototype quantities of the boards (4 layers or less) made for free:

Hey Drew!, its Dylan, expect an email from out previous conversations. The boards will highly help in the money and time area.
