BeagleBone Green In Pakistan
What is SeeedStudio BeagleBone Green?
SeeedStudio BeagleBone Green (BBG) is a joint effort by BeagleBoard.org and Seeed Studio. It is based on the open-source hardware design of BeagleBone Black and developed into this differentiated version. The BBG has included two Grove connectors, making it easier to connect to the large family of Grove sensors. The on-board HDMI is removed to make room for these Grove connectors.

Beaglebone Black vs. Beaglebone Green vs. Beaglebone Green Wireless
Beaglebone Green Wireless (BBGW) and Beaglebone Green (BBG) both manufactured by Seeed Studio, are open source hardware (OSHW) single board computers. Both are similar to the Beaglebone Black (BBB), especially with respect to software, and all ship three with a resident Debian Linux OS.
These three platforms share the same processor, but there are a few differences with regard to hardware peripherals. Both Beaglebone Green versions (BBG and BBGW) support the open-source click-in “Grove” hardware modules from Seeed Studio. BBG versions are better suited to embedded applications than Beaglebone Black, but you can still use the BBG or BBGW as a standalone Linux computer, although without the HDMI support for monitors that is on Beaglebone Black. Nevertheless, both of the Green versions support all of the hardware add-on modules (called “capes”) as the Beaglebone Black, including capes that can support a monitor.
BBG and BBGW boards come with a small instruction manual and a 6 inch USB standard A to USB micro B cable. Everything else, as well as the system reference manual, is stored on the board itself, which acts like a USB thumb drive when plugged into a Windows or Linux computer, so installation and boot up are easy.
A detailed comparison of all three boards follows. You can find a much larger scale comparison of several open source hardware boards in a large expandable table that is intended to facilitate OSHW board selection (based on project requirements) at the Open Source Hardware Applications site.
