BeagleV Starlight Beta Prototype
The BeagleV™ - Starlight project has concluded and no units beyond the beta prototypes will be produced. This design was never sold as a product.
BeagleV Starlight is a Linux-capable RISC-V 64-bit dev board.
A beta prototype version was sent to a limited number of upstream developers for software enablement. This beta prototype used the StarFive JH7100 SoC.

Adafruit Blinka Installation
We use a special library called adafruit_blinka (named after Blinka, the CircuitPython mascot) to provide the layer that translates the CircuitPython hardware API to whatever library the Linux board provides.
For example, on Raspberry Pi we use the python RPi.GPIO library. For any I2C interfacing we'll use ioctl messages to the /dev/i2c device. For SPI we'll use the spidev python library, etc. These details don't matter so much because they all happen underneath the adafruit_blinka layer.
